This is blossoming technology! The solar flower enables you to generate and consume your own solar PV electricity. The 12 petals of the smartflowerTM provide 18m2 of photovoltaic surface and follow the path of the sun, just like a sunflower, along a dual horizontal and vertical axis, using a tracker system.
This innovative system means that you can optimise your energy production: up to 40% more efficient than a roof-mounted PV installation. It provides 3,500 kilowatt hours per year, meeting all the electricity requirements of a household, apart from heating and hot water. Installation by EDF Distributed Renewable Energy (ENR) specialists is easy and fast: it just has to be connected to the building’s electricity panel.
This innovation is exclusively available in France from EDF ENR, a subsidiary of EDF Renewables.
