Instant energy — Roll Out solar panels

Solar power will be easier to install than ever before thanks to this innovation: the Roll-Array which rolls out like a carpet. This flexible and easy-to-transport instant microgrid has the capacity to bring alternative energy to places we never thought possible. Check out the video below to see it in action.

The Roll-Array is towable by a standard 4×4 vehicle. When connected to the back of the car, the flexible solar panels are pulled out of a spool and create ground cover in a matter of minutes. On their website, Renovagen claims the panels will be able generate up to 100kWp – 10 times more power than other transportable solar panels on the market today.

The tightly wound solar spools can be carried by the 4×4 vehicle attached to a small air pallet trailer in tow, which eliminates the need for large diesel generators. And the panels roll out in two minutes with full installation in just five!

Just imagine, instant energy in areas hit by natural disasters. Or constant power for remote places. Renovagen is now crowd-funding for the Roll-Array on Crowdcube. I just checked and they have exceeded their goal so hopefully this amazing solar project will more widely available soon.
