Solar trees may build awareness and interest in solar technology and
also, provide shade and meeting places.
The working of a solar tree is much like that of a real one—leaf-like solar panels connected through metal
branches using sunlight to make energy.
In some places, the Solar tree panels charge batteries during the day.
At dusk, the tree automatically switches on LED lights.
In some other places, people sit under the solar trees to charge their Phones or hold meetings.
It is programmed to regulate the amount of light it produces. Solar trees are flexible and rotate to face the sun and produce the maximum possible amount of energy using a technique called “spiralling phyllataxy”.
Unique sculptural creations for single sites began to appear in 1998 (e.g., the 7 kW tree in Gleisdorf, Austria) or earlier.
Locations, where these solar Trees can be found, are roadways,
public areas in cities, schools and universities, office buildings, science museums, and more.
Solar trees may build awareness and interest in solar technology and also provide shade and meeting places.
Morocco is one of the African countries where solar trees can be found.
