      Paint the Town…Solar?

      Paint the Town…Solar?

      The Magic of Solar Paint

       Yes, you read that right. Otherwise known as photovoltaic paint, solar paint is being hailed worldwide as the future of solar. And what is it, you ask? It’s exactly what its name suggests – apply it to any surface, and solar paint will capture the sun’s energy and convert it into actual electricity you can use in your home or office space.

       How Does It Work?

      The paint itself is engineered with billions of light-sensitive materials which are suspended in the liquid. While the concept is still relatively new, solar paint is set to empower home-owners and businesses to leverage the potential of solar energy with fast, easy, and cheap installation.

      Why Isn’t It Mainstream Yet?

      The thing about solar paint is that its solar energy capture ranges from about 3% to around 8%. For example, solar paint with 6% efficiency means it captures around 6% of the sun’s available energy. Seeing as conventional silicon solar panels recently hit 20% efficiency, it’s clear to see that solar paint technology still has a long way to go.

      Looking Ahead

      While it’ll probably be a few months or years before solar paint reaches your home, we can already get excited and start planning for its widespread implementation. Whether you’ll be painting the house solar next year or painting your pantry this weekend, don’t make another move without Kolossus Workwear’s coveralls in your DIY arsenal.

      3. The Biggest Fleets In The World – Currently, Germany, Japan, and Greece have the largest fleets on Earth.
