A few days ago we had a power outage at our home and for that hour or so my wife and I sat and talked, mostly about what we thought people did when there was no lighting in the evenings, TV or Internet connection, and how we take access to energy for granted. Even today, in many rural and developing communities, access to energy is limited, but social enterprises like Roseicollis Technologies Inc., with their SunSaluter, are making solar power more affordable and accessible to those in need.
Started by Canadian Eden Full at just 19 years old, the SunSaluter is being developed to tackle energy infrastructure growth and climate change. Their technology “is like a sunflower. It rotates solar panels to follow the sun to increase their output throughout the day – without using any electricity to do so.” By harnessing more energy each day, solar panels become more efficient and effective, so more communities can have access to electricity which ultimately leads to greater impact.
Made from locally-sourced and recyclable materials, the SunSaluter was designed to be simple to assemble and maintain, and can be installed beneath any existing solar panel. Currently, two pilot projects are underway in Kenya, with expansion for implementation in Peru and southern India expected for the upcoming year.
Through its technology, Roseicollis Technologies Inc. is playing a leading role in encouraging communities to adopt renewable energy resources, and in turn ensuring the preservation of our planet.
Want to get involved with SunSaluter? The company is currently seeking partnership, commercialization and outreach support. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Roseicollis Technologies Inc. and SunSaluter for making our world wonderful.
