The world has been looking for alternatives to fossil fuels and renewable energies are the solutions that stand out the most. Therefore, a Ukrainian businesswoman developed vertical solar panels to be used on balconies.

This “homemade” system could help Europe with the energy crisis that has been exacerbated by the war in Ukraine.




Global warming has not stopped and the world has known droughts, intense heat waves and fires, but also floods and extreme storms. The search for a solution has been constant; even more so now that its consequences have become so clear.

As a result of this perception, renewable alternatives have been widely pointed out as the solution to be adopted, and it was with this in mind that the Ukrainian businesswoman Karolina Attspodina developed an interesting way of harnessing the sun's energy.

Solar energy is both free and readily available. Existing solar panel solutions are either intended for industrial use or are too heavy to install without the assistance of a qualified technical team. You also have to wait for the monthly bill to determine the effect.

Karolina Attspodina explained to TechCrunch.

The vertical solar panels were developed by German engineers and responded to the need of Attspodina and the co-founder of the startup WeDoSolar when they were looking for faster solutions to reduce CO2 emissions.

Vertical solar panels could be a viable solution

According to TechCrunch, now, the WeDoSolar provides vertical solar panels that can be easily installed on balconies by anyone, even if they are not specialized. In addition, they are equipped with weatherproof bands.

As reported on the startup's website, this solution is the lightest in the world, weighing only 1 kg. In addition to being able to be installed by anyone, it has another advantage: the possibility of being transported to another house, when moving.

We provided a tool that every person, both the owner and the tenant, could use daily at home to power household appliances. We want to make sustainable energy accessible, and I see great potential in people who take their energy dependence into their own hands.

Shared Attspodina.

Once plugged into a regular outlet, the vertical panels immediately start powering home appliances. More than that, users can monitor the amount of CO2 saved through a virtual power plant.

I felt that we can serve not only the people who own a house, but also part of the market, which it rents. Right now, energy costs are going up like crazy, and they won't stop going up until we stabilize them and implement a number of ways to generate our own clean energy.

Attspodina clarified.

In fact, the solar panels sold by your company could help Europeans reduce their CO2 footprint by 600 kg and save 25% on energy.
