EcoNation combines mirror-based rooftop solar lights with a customized financial model, which create electricity savings, and comfort, health and environmental benefits in one package.
The LightCatcher is a solar-powered sensor system that tracks the brightest point in the sky. Through a mirror-based technology that optimizes the amount of daylight coming in, the LightCatcher can automatically turn off lights in buildings for an average of 10 hours a day. The system also diffuses light and reflects heat, avoiding high temperatures and blinding light on sunny days.
EcoNation installs the solution at no cost and is repaid via monthly payments linked to the customer’s electricity bill savings. Customers therefore face no upfront cost and start saving immediately. According to the company, the package deal decreases electricity consumption by 20% to 50%, reducing yearly CO2 emissions by 40 tons per 1,000 m² while also improving indoor environments.
