Ecacia: A Solar-Harvesting Prototype That Mimics Trees of the African Savannah

 

What happened?

Designer Samuel Wilkinson has created a solar-harvesting prototype called Ecacia that mimics the trees of the African savannah. The large, umbrella-like canopy allows it to capture large amounts of sunlight, which is then converted into energy. This sustainable design could relieve the hot weather while also harvesting solar energy!

 

Why is this important?

As solar energy becomes increasingly popular, it's essential to find efficient and sustainable ways to harvest it. Ecacia is an excellent example of how solar energy can be harvested in a way that is both environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing. The solar cells on the roof of the structure are embedded with more than 700 solar cells. This allows Ecacia to capture large amounts of sunlight, which is then converted into energy. The solar-harvesting prototype is still in its early stages but has excellent potential to be a sustainable and efficient way to harvest solar energy.

 

What do you think? Do you like the design of Ecacia? Do you think it's an excellent way to harvest solar energy? Let us know in the comments!
