Solar Tree / Product design

Solar Tree
Solar Tree

Solar Energy is one of the most accessible clean energy sources, and the related technologies are becoming more and more mature.
Solar Trees are used in open spaces in parks, communities, and villages. Electricity generated by tree canopies is used for night lighting. Electricity generated by the end of tree branches is stored in tree trunks and charged when needed.The bottom of the tree trunk provides a place for people to rest, and transparent solar panels allow light to pass through while also providing shelter from the rain, just like a real tree.
