Saving electricity and opting to use solar power for lightning duringnightfall is a trend that many are following. This is the SonUmbrasolar-powered tree. It looks a lot like a tree with its branches andleaves and is composed of strands of light-emitting fabric woven into alucent web of branches.
The tree, designed by Loop.pH has a canopy withphotovoltaic panels that captures light during the day. During night itshines brilliantly like a lit tree.
