mounting solar panels hasn’t been this easy

Veranda Solar, a start up company is developing a plug and play solar panel system that can be easily clipped to gutters and balconies or may be hung from your window. The unique looking solar panels can snap together and is similar to a solar power appliance which can be installed in a couple hours.

The company was founded by two students at Stanford University in spring 2008 who developed their unique solar panel design as a product design thesis, according to their website they expect to have their system on the market by the end of 2009.

This concept looks really good, but I think they will have challenges with making sure the solar panels can resist high wind loads and also connecting the solar panels to the grid, how will they interconnect? Will they use a plug n play grid tie inverter? The current grid tie inverters on the market that can be plugged directly into an A/C outlet are not UL listed.

I wonder how efficient the solar cells are? Will the mounts be able to tilt the solar panels in the optimal degree to maximize power generation? There are just so many unanswered questions today with this product but I think this company is on the right track by developing products that make solar panels more “plug and play”. What do you think about this unique small scale solar power concept?
