Solar Carpet Roll Array

Thanks to Roll-Array, we’ll soon see alternative energy in places you’d never expect, like a deserted beach. Renovagen’s photovoltaic array rolls out like carpet, and can be easily transported by a standard 4×4 vehicle. When attached to the back of the vehicle, these flexible solar panels – capable of generating up to generate up to 100kWp – are pulled out of a spool and cover the ground in minutes.

“A standard rigid solar field takes 22 hours of man-power to install, while the thin, flexible sheets roll out in just 2 minutes.

Batteries and inverters are attached to the base of the panels,” reports Inhabitat.
