Identification

SunPlower provides a hybrid solution combining innovative lift and thrust propellers covered with self-cleaning solar panels, allowing lower-cost renewable energy harvesting at multiple locations.

Truly versatile, Sunplower can be implemented close to anywhere. From a river or an electrical tower to a simple roof, this solution will use the power of the sun, the wind or the water to produce electricity. Thank's to its disruptive technology, Sunplower flat propellers function under any circumstances even with turbulent wind. The technology of Sunplower allows the system to use shorter mast than regular wind turbines leading to reduced installation and maintenance costs. With components easy to repair or replace, the Sunplower technology is fully scalable and suitable for small, medium and large enterprises.
