Solar panel systems are becoming an increasingly popular way for municipalities and governments to take advantage of the sun as a natural and clean source of energy, which is why the Cardiff Council in Wales is quite literally rolling out a new solar panel technology that allows for carpet-like installation.
The aptly named Rapid Roll Solar PV system comprises flexible solar panels that can be rolled out much like a carpet, allowing them to be transferred from a compact, rolled-up form onto flat surfaces that allow them to maximize sunlight exposure and intake.
By making the installation of solar panels easier, this carpet-inspired solar panel system is designed for efficient and economical deployment, making it easier for cash-strapped economies to take advantage of solar power.
