Our mission is to create clean energy technologies that are pleasing to the eye, simple to install, even easier to use, and optimize efficiency. The smartflower achieves these objectives. It can easily be installed in a few hours and because of its smart features, requires no effort once placed in service. And through its unique tracking system smartflower optimizes the generation of solar energy throughout the day.
The smartflower has several photo-voltaic panels that fan out like the petals of a flower during the day to capture energy from the sun. Since solar panels are most efficient when they are pointed directly at the sun, the smartflower tracks the sun east to west and up and down all day long to extract the maximum possible energy from the available sunlight.
For such a smart system, smartflower is incredibly low maintenance. After a quick plug-and-play installation, smartflower quickly adapts to its environment. Each morning, smartflower unfolds itself when the sun rises and automatically calculates the optimal angle to the sun, making it 40% more efficient than a static rooftop system. As it tracks the sun throughout the day to produce clean energy, smartflower maintains itself through self-cooling and cleaning. smartflower asks nothing of you except to go about your day and use the clean energy it provides.
smartflower’s modular petals autonomously follow the sun so they’re always at the optimal angle to the sun, generating 40% more energy output than traditional solar.
The system’s solar modules are rear-ventilated, keeping it up to 18°F cooler to deliver 5–10% more output when compared to rooftop solar.
smartflower automatically cleans itself every time it folds and unfolds. Brushes on the back of each panel remove any contaminants, leading to increased efficiency.
smartflower is weatherproof and continuously monitors wind speeds, automatically folding itself into a secure position to prevent system damage.
A fully integrated, plug-and-play solar solution without the complex installation. smartflower is as easy to disassemble as it is to set up, so you can take it anywhere.
The integrated control panel automatically sends you data on your energy use via the smartflower mobile app to help you decide how to better use your electricity (select models only).
