Lowers Your Carbon Footprint
It is a well-known fact that the improper disposal of batteries has a negative effect on the environment. Although there are proper methods for disposing batteries, most people simply toss them in their garbage cans without a second thought.
A solar charging panel works with built in rechargeable lithium batteries that last for the lifetime of the motor. This removes the need to toss out and replace your batteries to operate your motorized window treatments.
Another way it lowers your carbon footprint is by causing you to use less electricity (a nonrenewable resource) and allowing you to take advantage of a more natural and renewable source of energy.
With modern day technology, most solar charging panels, such as the Rollease Acmeda’s Automate Solar Charging panels, are able to work even in dimly lit rooms.
If one of your windows receives less sunlight than all the others, you can combine multiple charging panels to work in conjunction to charge your motorized window treatment.
Solar powered window treatments are a safer option for the following reasons
- Set up does not require hard wiring or electrical work
- There is no need to try to access hard to reach places to change batteries in your window treatment’s motor.
