Currently seeking your financial support on Kickstarter, SolarGaps are sun-tracking photovoltaic solar panel window blinds capable of generating up to "100W-150W of renewable energy per 10 sq. ft. (~ 1 m2) of a window," which may make them particularly appealing for those that won't or can't install solar panels on their roof.
Simply mount SolarGaps on the wall over your window using the brackets provided or install them on the outside of your home.
Then plug SolarGaps into a power outlet and lower your energy bills by feeding electricity back to the grid. Any energy surplus can either be stored in batteries or be sold to your power utility.
