Do you know what TRecs, SRecs or Green Tags are? Also known as Renewable Energy Certificates(REC). These certificates are what enables you to use Solar without panels.
Kickstarter alumni, Sunport, has just started shipping this spring and will allow you to use solar energy without solar panels using RECs. When RECs are purchased in combination with non-renewable electricity this constitutes the legal purchase of renewable energy. This is how electrical grid connected renewable energy is traded in the U.S. This is how companies like Apple can claim to be green energy users. We talk with Paul Droege of Sunport about his product and how you can be a slick solar user like Apple. Paul also shares some Kickstarter wisdom. Check it out.
