Four-leaf clovers might bring you luck, but Armageddon Energy's three-leafed SolarClover solar panels promise something more concrete — cheap, green energy.
Using standard silicon solar cells embedded in a Teflon medium, each three-panel unit generates about 400 watts. By comparison, a typical American household needs about 4000 watts to keep running, but even a few SolarClovers will go a long way to defraying your monthly power bill.
Setting up a single SolarClover — including triangular frame, micro-inverter and three lightweight silicon hexagonal solar panels — takes minutes, says Armageddon management.
And because they use polymers in their structure versus the usual glass, each unit weighs less than 13 pounds, or less than half that of a typical glass-and-silicon rooftop solar panel. And it's lighter on your wallet too, with Armageddon's power costing $6/watt versus an industry standard of $7/watt, once they get up to commercial scale production.
