The top part of the Solar Palm leaves are layered with multiple DSSC-based solar modules that are not only highly efficient, but also low cost. The bottom part of the leaf is a single sheet of luminescent fabric that gives off full-surface illumination and can be customized to mimic the look of any type of palm without impeding the trees’ energy collection.

As far as energy absorption, these specific modules offer an especially robust type of solar technology because they are designed to cope with partial shadows and sub-optimal sun angles. Once the energy is absorbed, it is stored in an accumulator hidden in the tree base. The solar-generated energy is then used to power the leaves, providing a bright illumination to the surrounding area. The trees’ energy can also be used to charge mobile devices through its integrated USB connection.
