Solar Loop
New York City
The “Solar Loop”is a photovoltaic solar sculpture that can be placed in urban and suburban areas in different context. The aim is to expose more surface possible to the solar rays during the day. The shape comes out directly from the analysis of the sun path and the direction of the sun rays from sunrise to the sunset. The surface is made in a way that is always perpendicular to the rays, providing a more efficient system. It is tested that a same square meters surface designed with a “standard orientation and shape” provides less energy than the Solar Loop, so that the shape is rationally justified as a more efficient solutions: “Same square meters of photovoltaic panels generate more energy thanks to its shape!”
