What is the solar tree? A solar tree is a structure resembling a tree that has solar panels fitted on the branches. The solar panels connected through branches produce solar power. The working of a solar tree is much like that of a real one—leaf-like solar panels connected through metal branches using sunlight to make energy. The Solar tree panels charge batteries during the day. At dusk, the tree automatically switches on LED lights. It is programmed to regulate the amount of light it produces. Solar trees are flexible and rotate to face the sun and produce the maximum possible amount of energy using a technique called “spiraling phyllotaxy”. Key details of CMERI solar tree This is producing up to 11,500 watts (11.5kw). The CMERI solar tree has 35 panels each with a capacity of 330 watts. The solar tree has capabilities to adapt a group of Internet of Things (IoT)-based features, such as round-the-clock CCTV surveillance in agricultural fields real-time humidity, wind speed, rainfall prediction ” soil analytics sensors The solar tree can also be connected to CSIR-CMERI’s solar-powered e-suvidha kiosks for real-time access to the massive agricultural database, as well as to the eNAM (National Agricultural Marketplace) for instant and real-time access to a unified online market. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
