New ‘Solar Cloth’ Material Creates Solar Energy Pretty Much Anywhere!

solar-clothTrue Activist – by John Vibes

England-based Solar Cloth Company has created a lightweight photovoltaic fabric solar panel system that can operate pretty much anywhere. The company’s founder Perry Carroll, says that the system is currently being marketed for use on parking lots, rooftops and other places that traditional solar panels may not be practical for.

Carroll says that the company is teaming up with some high-profile clients to launch their project.  

“We have built a growing sales pipeline worth £4.2m [about $6.57 million] for 2015, including park and ride projects, airport parking operators and retail park owners,Carroll said.

According to the specifications of the equipment, a ten square meter portion of the cloth weighs about 7.3 pounds. This is extremely light-weight when considering that a traditional solar panel weighs roughly 35 to 48 pounds.

Another advantage to the Solar Cloth is that it is flexible, which adds to its versatility and ability to be installed pretty much anywhere.

“One of the main hindrances to solar panel adoption is that they can be difficult to install and integrate with existing architecture functionally and aesthetically. Flexible solar cloth overcomes all of these problems and can add real value to existing and upcoming sites,” Hans Haenlein, an adviser to The Solar Cloth Company said in a recent statement.

This year, the Solar Cloth won the Solar U.K. Industry Awards’ Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Solar Innovation.

      He shouldn’t use any airborne or automated transportation.
      Including all cars with electronic control systems (throttle, Xmission, steering, brakes, etc.)
      Or, at least, install a hidden fail safe electric fuel pump kill switch on any modern car he drives or ride in. You can’t kill all of the electrical system or the airbags, anti-lock brakes, electrical steering, etc., won’t work.
      Sad, isn’t it, that I have really thought through a fail safe method to shut down a vehicle I own and drive.
      I’ve always got the ’73 model to fall back on.
      Luck and survival favors the prepared.

    I remember years ago when someone invented solar cells in paint, slap it on, 2 wires + & -, instant power, I guess that didn’t work out for us either….
