in development at Veranda Solar
Most solar panels for homes are primarily marketed for larger, more affluent suburban home owner. Veranda Solar has a new idea that offers an affordable solution for people living in the city, small enough to use outside apartment and condo windows. It probably won’t generate enough power to run all the electricity but may offer significant help in lowering energy use. They are estimating they will sell these for $400-600 and that the end user will be able to install easily themselves. The caveat, of course, is you’ll need a sunny window and unless the panels can move to move to follow the sun – there will only a be a limited time it can collect direct sun rays. Still, they may be able to work out these issues so it can offer solar power to renters and other city dwellers.
