SolarGaps are solar paneled blinds which create renewable energy from the sun. The idea is to set the blinds up in a window so they can shade your home from the sun, but also so that they can collect large amounts of sunlight. These solar paneled blinds can generate up to 100-150W of energy from just a 10 sq. ft window. This is enough to power roughly 30 LED light bulbs or three Macbooks. SolarGaps are currently in the process of making their products and will be available late 2017. Prices range from about $200 to $2000 depending on size. It may seem like an expensive up-front cost, but these blinds are designed to last for years – contributing to a life-time of savings.
