Project Summary

Solar power is the last energy resource that isn't owned yet - nobody taxes the sun yet.
Bonnie Raitt

The Spin Cell™ is constructed of a conical shaped outer lens concentrator that provides efficient light concentration at a consistent focal width and focal range. Due to the patent pending conical shape, by design the Spin Cell™ captures the optimum amount of sunlight during daylight hours eliminating the need for solar tracking and increasing electricity output.

V3 Spin Cell cones can produce up to 20x more solar energy than flat photovoltaics

When one thinks of solar power, they usually conjure an image of flat panels installed on the siding of a house. But in the future, a spinning solar cell – like the one created by V3Solar – may be what comes to mind.

The intelligent – and rather elegant – Spin Cell cones aim to utilize as much of the sun’s power as possible. Reportedly, the present prototype has been third-party verified as capable of generating “over 20 times more electricity than a static flat panel with the same area of photovoltaic cells.”

The company Team Nectar is largely responsible for developing the Spin Cell solar panel. According to Inhabitat, the company behind the ingenious cell hopes the invention could be a game-changer in its market. The website for the V3 Spin Cell explains that if one places a 20x solar concentration on a flat, static solar panel, “the temperature quickly reaches 260 degrees F, the solder melts within ten seconds, and the PV fails. With the same concentration on the Spin Cell, the temperature never exceeds 95 degrees F.”
