Any Surface Can Be A Solar Cell

Turn Every Surface Into A Solar Cell


This Special Cloth Can Be Applied To Any Surface Turning It Into A Solar Cell

Now this almost seems to be a dream come true.

It puts energy generation right in the hands of the home owner.

How many surfaces in your house could you paint with this special paint and cloth and turn it into a solar energy collector.

Here is how it works

Although the nano-molecular scientific paper will be published later this year, we do know that the SolarLayer is a system composed of three basic elements: a fiber conductor, photovoltaic cells and a voltage stabilizer.

The conductor is a super thin 2µm (microns) copper-based alloy fiber that acts as the basic conducting surface. This fiber can be fabricated as a cloth or as a powder.

The photovoltaic cells are the most innovative and revolutionary of the three components. They have the capacity to transform light sources to electricity, to work as an intelligent conductor and to  sense the magnetic North. Cells surfaces have a series of conducting and non-conducting areas. Through a special process, each photovoltaic cell is able to use this areas to intelligently allow and stop energy flow from and to the fiber conductor avoiding a shortcut chaos. Most importantly, each cell will re-route energy coming from the fibre to the magnetic north. This is the way by which instead of thousands of possible destinations, the flow of energy always finds its way to the magnetic North where the conductor will end and the electric current will be trapped by a special copper wire.

The third component is the tension stabilizer that receives electric current from different parts of the conductor fiber by the copper wire and it stabilizes it before generating a useful current output.

Once the electrical output is obtained, this system is connected to the house grid.

Putting this in the hands of consumers should cause the use of renewable energies to skyrocket.

The Developers hope to get this added to every paint in about 5 years.
