Here are some ingenious energy collectors which double to provide the right shade for people who want to stay away from the harmful rays of the sun. Rather than get burned by the heat, these Solar Trees were meant to collect energy using the sun’s rays. They are known as the Solar Trees.
The Solar Trees feature 12 foot trunks and steel canopies made to shield anyone from the unforgiving rays of the sun. The electricity generation was made possible thanks to the photovoltaic cells at the top of them and much of these trees can be spotted over at Sta. Clara County government buildings.
They may also be spotted at health clinics in San Jose and Gilroy which aim to save around $18 million from electrical costs. This and some addressing of the greenhouse gases of course, the whole initiative hopefully addresses some environmentally concerns which many should follow if this proves to be successful.
