Solar blinds designed to give flat-dwellers access to sun’s energy

A Ukrainian firm which last year launched solar panel window blinds says its product will give the millions of people living in apartments access to solar power. Solar Gaps believes its blinds are the first in the world to incorporate solar panels. The smart blinds generate renewable energy using photovoltaic modules installed on every slat. It took Erik two years to develop the product and, after a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign last year, it’s now on the market. Erik says that if installed outside on a south-facing window, one square metre of Solar Gaps can produce 100-150 Watts per hour and reduce energy consumption by an estimated 70 percent.
