Bimini top integrated with photovoltaic panels for yachts
We’ve had bimini tops before, covering up our yachts suitably, to keep the sun out and save us from burning in the mid-ocean blistering heat. Here’s a bimini top that not only keeps the sun away and provides some cool shade, but also generates electricity! By technical textile manufacturer Dickson, the Sunbrella Suprême integrates photovoltaics, helping it soak in the energy from the sun and produce some renewable
energy. This one keeps out the harshest of weather conditions, and is also available in six different colors to suit your taste buds. The Sunbrella Plus fabric holds the strength of a good two photovoltaic panels. This one aesthetically beats adding some huge solar panels to soak in the sun on that beautiful yacht of yours.
Unveiled at the 2010 Marine, Equipment and Trade Show (METS), in Amsterdam, the Sunbrella Suprême is sure to catch on in the marine industry and amongst yacht lovers.
