From Kevin Dibasitis at Electric Film:
ElectricFilm is a unique light-harvesting technology that has been developed and advanced over the past quarter century. The lightweight, flexible film has been engineered to capture indoor or low light (50 to 2,000 lux) with high efficiency. The film is manufactured through low cost materials with a roll-to-roll process that allows for custom sizes to work with multiple applications.
This harvesting solution converts light from anywhere into electricity that can power numerous smart building devices including automated, motorized window shade systems to block heat gain, smart thermostats that reduce energy consumption, motion detectors/cameras, and electronic door locks that can enhance building security. The ElectricFilm harvest solution allows these devices to be wireless, reducing the cost of hardwiring and allowing for greater installation flexibility.
ElectricFilm greatly extends the battery life for all of these devices reducing O & M costs for primary batteries (and having to dispose of those batteries in the environment) as well as the labor time and inconvenience of having to change batteries.
ElectricFilm is based in Newburyport, MA, which includes all of our research & development along with our new production plant which is under construction and due to come online by the end of Q1 2014. All production will be performed here in the USA. While we are a green building technology, we are also Red, White & Blue!
