SunPort Solar Access Device allows you to use real solar energy to power your electric devices without it actually using or having any solar panels installed.
Do you know what Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) are? If you don’t, here’s a short version: SREC’s are commodities that certify that you’re using electricity from a renewable energy source (in this case, solar energy).
Basically, the electricity that comes out of an ordinary outlet is generated by a variety of sources (coal, wind and so on), but when you buy an SREC your money goes to the provider of solar power. Understood? Good.
SunPort allows you to use that solar power from your ordinary outlet. This adapter, when plugged in, measures the amount of electricity you’re using and automatically converts it to solar power by buying tiny portions of an SREC.
Essentially, it allows you to buy and use solar power without spending money on big chunks of solar energy or installing solar power.
It does the purchasing with SunJoules and requires only your smartphone and an outlet to do its job, Through the SunPort app you can track the amount of SunJoules you’ve used and see other interesting statistics.
Now, this is a cool and efficient way of being environment-friendly on a day to day basis. It will certainly make you feel like a better person that helps the environment.
