New Solar Power Tree can light 5 homes in just 4 sq ft of land

At first, it may seem strange, but when you get used to it, the structure looks like a tree, a technological tree but nonetheless a tree. People from the Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) in India have resorted to this type of design because it can yield better results with less use of space. The pictures do some of the explaining, but to make sure we will describe the solar tree. The branches hold up photovoltaic panels, each one producing five kilowatts of energy. Compared to an ordinary, ground-mounted array of solar panels, it uses only 4 square feet of land and can give 10-15% more power. Once filled, the battery can produce 2 hours of light after the source of energy is gone. You can watch the video to see for yourself this impressive solar power tree.

    I study renewable Energies in Berlin, from my point of view this is a kind of a joke. The whole article describes the technical parts not exactly enough. I reckon the panels are never correct directed to sun. maybe some are while others are not. They will probably shade each other a couple of times, what reduces the amount of power you can take out enormous. The size of the battery is missing and the same with the size of the consumer (light).
    From my point of view it even looks a kind of ugly. before we think about that strange ideas here, we should consider first placing them on roofs. I am really open for new ideas, but this does not convince me at all.

    Kind regards from Berlin
