Disrupted Energy – solar power systems nearly DIY install

New Solar Power – simple to add to a roof and does its own safety checks

The system installs by simply gluing it to the rooftop with self installs taking around and hour

“By simplifying the system so that it’s like installing an appliance, we envision that the soft cost will be virtually eliminated,” says Christian Hoepfner, director of the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems, which developed the system.

Likely to lower the cost of a residential solar installation from $22,000 (£15,000) to $7,500 (£5,000) – with technology accelerating at an increasing rate this is likely to drop further and fasterDisrupted Energy - DIY solar panels
