    John Gendall, March 31, 2017 (Architectural Digest)

    “…[The Arnold Schwarzenegger-endorsed Smartflower is] a photovoltaic array that mimics the sun-seeking inclinations of a flower…[This design reportedly] results in 40-50 percent more efficiency than a traditional photovoltaic array…Unlike solar panels, which are normally fixed into place on rooftops, Smartflower is kinetic, allowing it to position itself to maximize sun exposure. In the morning, when the sun rises, its panels fan out, creating a flower-like arrangement, which then rotates throughout the day in response to sunlight. In its dormant, night-time position, it undergoes a cleaning process, minimizing the sunlight interference that dust build-up can present…[T] he system can be installed in any open space then easily plugged in…” click here for more
