SmartFlower is an innovative solar energy system that uses intelligent tracking to optimise its use of the sun's rays, making it 40% more efficient than a conventional solar energy system.
SmartFlower's solar panels work by automatically unfolding each morning at sunrise, and then using a dual-axis system to follow the sun's movement throughout the day, always maintaining an optimal angle.
SmartFlower can be easily integrated with external EV charging stations, meaning it can be used to charge electric vehicles. This makes SunFlower suitable for shopping centres, hotels, restaurants, small businesses and other public, commercial and residential environments.
The SmartFlower +Plus version features an integrated battery that enables energy to be stored and then provided even during peak demand times, or when there is a power outage.
Installation and maintenance
SmartFlower is easy to site and can be installed within just a few hours by certified technicians. Once running, SmartFlower is fully self-cleaning. Every time the petals open, brushes on the back of each panel will remove any contaminants, thereby maintaining the system's efficiency. The system is weatherproof and will monitor wind speeds in order to know when to fold into a secure postion to prevent any damage.
Because SmartFlower is a fully self-contained system, it is as easy to disassemble as it is to install, so the entire system can be removed and relocated if required.
