April 6, 2022  By Somfy

Somfy has announced the launch of the Li-ion Solar Panel, filling the need for a greener alternative to power wirefree motorized window shades and blinds. The innovative solar charging solution harnesses renewable solar energy to power motorized window coverings in a cost-effective way that also reduces end-user maintenance.

The Li-ion Solar Panel works in conjunction with long-life batteries that provide enhanced performance and convenience by decreasing the need for battery replacement. Compatible with most Somfy powered WireFree™ window coverings, the panel’s discreet low profile is easy to conceal and preserves the design of the window.

Speaking on the launch, Brent Holup, Product Manager Wirefree Products said, “The team at Somfy is constantly innovating to offer high-performing, maintenance-free alternatives to our valuable customers.” He added, “The new Li-ion Solar Panel is a simple plug-and-play, cost-effective solution aimed at providing additional convenience to consumers. Optimum sun exposure is all you need to enjoy the best performing lithium-ion battery technology without worrying about replacing or discarding disposable batteries.”
