ETree for solar power
Yoav Ben-Dov designed a special tree, a eTree that can collect solar energy from the sun. The invention is located in HaNadiv Gardens near Zichron Ya’akov, Israel.
This new device was conceived by a Israeli company, Sologic, a solar energy based company. They say “eTree is a social enterprise which aims to promote environmental awareness and sustainability, to create a link between the community environment.”
It’s designed to look like a natural tree and can also be used for shade. Still, it’s purpose does not end here. It is build out of metal tubes that stand for branches and as for leaves, it has large solar panels, constructed out of tempered glass that can deal with any weather. So not only can the tree be used all year long, but can also be o source of free WI fi.
This type of energy provider can be useful for schools, parks of private houses.
And even if the country does not “enjoy” oils as its neighbors do, it can harvest a lot of energy, clean energy from the sun. SO, a lot of their rooftops are also homes for solar panels.
“I wanted to integrate the idea of solar energy to the community by creating the eTree,” Sologic chairman Michael Lasry reports for NBC News. “The tree is made of metal pipes and the leaves are solar panels.”
Sologic says its purpose is to be a guidance in using and preserving sources of renewable energy, particularly solar energy. Sologic was founded by Michael Lasry an Israeli entrepreneur. Solgic’s mission includes making a greener future.
