Spanish startup: solar panels on balconies, awnings and boats

The Spanish startup Tornasol Energy has made solar panels that produce photovoltaic energy while set on balconies, terraces, sheds, cars and boats, Building-tech reports.

The kit consists of one or two modules, a microinverter and a 5m cable. Thanks to plug-in technology, you can plug it into any socket and start generating electricity immediately.

The company sells a 300W kit with only one panel for €450; and a 600 W kit, including two modules, priced at €790.

The offer also includes mounting structures for hanging panels on balcony railings.

“The idea came from our own experience. With the upward trend in the cost of electricity, we wanted to rely on solar power to install panels on our balconies, but the bulky conventional panels we discovered did not allow this. It was then that we decided to create kits that would allow for more versatile use,” Santiago Vernetta, co-founder of the company said.

As reported, the transition to renewable energy will help Spain to reduce electricity prices.
