Gallery: Greendix Develops First Leaf-Shaped Crystalline Silicon Solar ...


We all know that solar panels are at the forefront of green energy technology, but they aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing to look at. Aiming to solve that issue, Greendix, a custom solar panel supplier, has created what it claims is the first leaf-shaped PV crystalline silicon solar panel. And the company isn’t stopping there – they claim that their new technique could make PV panels in all different shapes and sizes.

The panel, which will be distributed by Sonelis Technologies, can be manufactured in a variety of colors. In a statement, Greendix president Joseph Lin noted, “One of the goals of my team was to take an existing technology, like solar panels, and revolutionize it so that it can seamlessly merge with our surroundings.”

Lin imagines that his leaf-shaped panels could one day populate entire solar forests. And who knows–since the leaves can be produced in multiple colors, those energy-generating forests might look a little psychedelic, too.

    An interesting variation could be “vines” made from
    these leaves, which can be “wrapped” around the
    buildings or other existing structures. The power
    generated could supplement the conventional sources.

    I see a potential for this product in urban regions
    such as Northern-India, that get good sunshine
    throughout the year, and where rising prosperity has
    resulted in a surge in demand for energy, but the
    infrastructure is unable to cope up.
