Florian’s Goals

We hope to make solar panels more popular by adding more options to the consumer market. In addition to solving problems that some may find with Architectural Review Boards, space issues, roof angles, etc. You now have options to place panels not just on your roof but in your backyard, over your deck, in the driveway, as a skylight, or over a walkway, etc. We want to make solar panels as common place as a deck on a home. We feel this can be done by making them more aesthetically pleasing with more uses and applications.
