TERRACED ENERGY / Solar power generator


Solar power is one of the sustainable ways to create electricity. However, there has been no significant innovative design change in solar power generators and the conventional design with 2D flat design has various limitations such as low tolerance to natural disasters. TERRACED ENERGY is a new solar power generator, which has an innovative design inspired by terraced rice fields and drawers. Due to its terraced drawer design, it has a great potential in overcoming limitations of the conventional design and provides extra benefits to societies with its epoch-making features that integrate characteristics of terraced rice field and drawer.
