Affordable Innovation


This solution delivers a product that is at once innovative and affordable. Having both of these characteristics simultaneously present is essential because often times those who most urgently need innovative solutions are those who are in poverty, and can't afford them.

One example of such a solution is SunSaluter's solar panel tracker that tracks the movement of the sun solely through the action of simple water weights that shift throughout the day. The product costs less than 20 to produce and lead to an instant 30% greater efficiency of the panels it is attached to.
