Army going Solar. Next stop, Fabric Architecture in your Backyard

US military have unveiled solar panel fabric structures to harness the suns energy in far away places. The Power Shade, TEMPER Fly, and QUADrant, all use photovoltaic (PV) solar panels built into the tent to deliver electricity, which can then be used to charge all of the electronic gadgets that today’s soldiers rely on every day.

So what does that mean for us civilians?

An idea like this can be transfered to commercial and residential use. PV fabric structures can be used to cover cars, outdoor decks, swimming pools and any place where people need shade and alternative means of gaining electricity to support our human comfort.

Coming to your neighborhood store: PV covers. Plug and Play.

Till next time.

  1. Sam, this is super exciting. You’ve heard about the EV Project (http://www.evproject.com), right? Their aim is to deploy charge infrastructure in major cities in six states. There couldn’t be a better place to install a PV fabric structure than at any one of these hundreds of electric charging stations across the nation. Oregon – do you hear that? That’s the sound of opportunity knocking. And FabriTec is at the door!
