Washington, August 15, 2017: It is not a piece of modern art even though it looks so, but in the land of Philippines this magnificent piece of device is actually an award-winning piece of the solar power device. It is designed by drawing inspiration from the structure of a sunflower. Built with the aesthetic structure inspired by a sunflower, the stunning device is engineered with 12 solar power panel petals of which, each is built with an area 59 square meter. The device attracts the energy of the sun, soaking the solar power from the light-rays as the power petals oscillate during the day.

The president of the ‘Smartflower Pacific’- John McEnroe was quoted as saying to VOA News that people can showcase to his friends, business partners, colleagues, and competitors, with the aspect of this device that they are wholeheartedly dedicated and committed to the cause of going green, by means of sustainable development approaches.

Each of the power unit of the solar panel is easily commutable. To the surprise of people, it has been engineered and programmed to function autonomously. During the sunrise the system opens and “blooms” to expand the petals in order to soak the energy from the light-rays of the sun. It also shuts down on its own during sundown, closing its power petals past the sunset. It is engineered with supreme sensors that can detect a bad weather and shut down on its own, such as- during heavy rain.

The very first ‘Smartflower’ system was set up at a school, in order to show people the necessity of using clean energy, mentioned VOA report.

Arnold Capuloy, from the De La Salle Lipa School was quoted as giving a statement to VOA that in order to share with people their ideology and their advocacy, as to the reason for using such a device, is the cause of introducing the device to the public by displaying it in a school for the first time. The students are also quite enthusiast and feel the same way.

Electrical Engineering student Christien Becios was quoted as saying “we really want to save the energy and also the environment at the same time”. Even though half the power in Philippines is generated by using other resources- the ‘Smartflower’ technology offers a cleaner option for generating electricity. Not only that, but it is also a renewable, sustainable, and eco-friendly source of electricity.
