Moreover, technology was made for the reason of making life easier, and it worked. We all are now font of technology and we do apply it in our day to day life, though it has many advantages but it too have bad impacts on our life too. Technology has given us a way to communicate, equipment for production of things used in our day to day life, better taste of living in the home, travelling facilities and many more, on the other hand it  has increased pollution, global warming and many more bad impacts on nature and human life.  

For controlling pollution occurring with the means of technology; we are switching to a technology which uses nature without affecting them likewise sunlight, water and air. We generate electricity from hydraulic fall near the waterfall or dams, windmills work with the help of air and generates a big amount of electricity throughout the day and last but not least we use solar panels, as soon as the sunlight incident on the panel it starts storing energy with the help of some wiring and sensors. The advantage of using water, air and sunlight as a source of generation of electricity is they will never exhaust from nature and are renewable resources, thus, we can use it whenever we want it will never end up.

Sunlight or solar energy is nowadays in trend and is used widely; this energy is clean, reliable and renewable source of energy which is been used by nature and humans for thousands of years, every living organism existing on Earth consumes sunlight, for examples: plants use sunlight to make their food, humans gets a plenty of sources through it like vitamin D, and animals too consume sunlight to make their body warm. Moreover, as humans go on updating their technology they have found out the way in which we use photo– voltaic processes to use sunlight as a source of electricity. Here, in The Architecture Designs, we will explain to you, what is solar umbrella, cost of solar umbrella and benefits of solar umbrella.

What is a solar umbrella?

An umbrella made with the concept to store solar energy with the help of solar panels and to use that solar energy into electrical energy  at night i.e. use of led lights under the umbrella at night is called solar umbrella.

You can even say that it soaks up energy at day time and emits in the form of led lights at night.

It is one of the simplest technology product used across all over the world, as it has no complicated wiring or any manual for its usage, you have to just use it as simply as you use your umbrella, and this umbrella will block the sun rays all day long protecting you from the harmful rays of sun along with that it will store that energy and will efficiently convert it into solar – powered lightning. The set up of the umbrella is not at all completed which is a good advantage for a person who is handing it.

The aspect to making it was at night if somewhere there is no light facility available or you are visiting a place where you’ll require light, you can take this umbrella and can use its solar power to navigate your way in the dark. Furthermore if you are visiting a forest or jungle there you’ll not find even a single source of light, in such a situation your umbrella will emit light whenever you need it, for that light you don’t have to pay any cost rather than just buying a solar umbrella from the shop.

–          A good quality  umbrella

–          Solar panels

–          Led lights

–          12 V battery

–          Inverter

–          Some wires

The construction of this product is very easy and can be done by anyone having bit knowledge of wiring and electrical and solar equipment. The very first step is mounting solar panels as solar panels are made photo – voltaic substance which is almost similar to the mirror, thus it should be adjusted precisely so that it won’t fall off and break, also it must not hurt the person standing under the umbrella or besides the umbrella. The reason for selecting 12 V batteries is to satisfy the requirements of led lights without increasing the weight of the product; one can place this battery on the cloth of umbrella or in the handle too.  Make sure after fixing all the things it must not weigh heavy otherwise no one would like to handle it, as it can cause hand pain. Be choosy while placing the inverter you have to be sure that it connects both solar panel and battery simultaneously. Led lights then with help of some wires must get connected with batteries this is the final step.

You can add a switch so that you can turn on and off the led lights accordingly. Moreover you can use sensors so whenever you put your hands on it light will turn on and as soon as you remove it the light will turn off.

Solar panels will soak the sunlight in day time, the light will be then stored and converted into electrical energy with the help of an inverter; inverter will charge the 12V battery throughout the day, at night you will get fully charged 12V battery which will supply electricity to led lights fitted inside the umbrella. Turn on the switch and the light glows up to navigate your way in the dark. The principle of working of this product is photo – voltaic process. You can even fit up a fan instead of led lights, many more innovations and ideas can come out with this process.
