To many consumers, the idea of adopting solar technology at home seems prohibitively expensive, and those who live in apartments and condos do not have their own roofs on which to install large-scale solar panels. With a new crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, Toronto's Better Current aims to introduce a viable option for those who live in small spaces.

'Jenni' introduces a solution for "solar-powered living in the city" that takes the form of a 5W solar panel, a 20W solar window panel and a battery pack and a hub that can be used to charge portable devices with a renewable energy source throughout the day.

Although there are a number of emerging business that allow consumers to harness alternate energy sources for paying their electricity bills, this small-scale solution has the potential to offset some of a consumer's electricity costs in a simple way.
