What if you could turn every window in your home into a solar panel? It may one day be a possibility with the development of a special spray-on coating.
Developers at New Energy Technologies say their spray-on solar panels can convert everyday surfaces like windows into solar panels by spraying on a special coating. The spray could even generate power from artificial light on glass surfaces inside commercial buildings. The company is showcasing a working prototype of its new “SolarWindow” system which it says will boost energy output by 300 percent. The prototype uses room temperature transparent spray-on photosensitive film that can produce energy from both natural and artificial light. The organic polymer spray-on coating that is applied to windows is only 1/1000th the thickness of human hair.The company says its system can already outperform other solar technologies in generating power from low-intensity light by as much as ten times. The CEO of New Energy says the company hopes to soon have a commercially viable solar generation product that can be sprayed directly onto glass.

Green technology such as this is becoming a necessity if we are to live sustainably. The problem with many new technologies is that they are usually very expensive but the costs do come down, as we have seen with solar geysers.
Water Rhapsody Water Conservation Systems has incorporated Yes Solar Mpumalanga so that we can offer solar water heating systems to further reduce your environmental impact (water and energy are linked). Yes Solar is a distributor for Solsquare Solar Solutions- high quality German-engineered solar energy systems that are competitively priced. Solsquare solar geysers are SABS- and Eskom-approved and are fitted by qualified, Eskom-accredited solar installers. Now is the time to install a solar geyser while the Eskom rebates last (this money will run out eventually) and before the looming energy crisis arrives. Solar water geysers can reduce household electricity costs by up to 50%.
Water Rhapsody’s WWF AWARD-winning water conservation systems (see product demo) include rainwater harvesting systems, grey water recycling systems, swimming pool backwash recycling, water-saving toilet flushing mechanisms and rainwater tanks (we are authorised JoJo Water Tanks & Atlas Plastics water tank dealers in Mpumalanga and Limpopo- best water tank prices in the Lowveld!). Two new industrial water recycling products have been added to our water system lineup, read about the Poseidon Advantage & Poseidon 1500.
Our water and solar systems will save the environment while you save money on water and electricity bills; get free water and free water heating!
