The blinds are reportedly able to generate up to 100 watt-hours of energy for every square meter when mounted on the outside of a window, or up to 50 watt-hours when mounted inside.
The energy that they produce can be fed into the municipal grid and sold to the local utility company, stored in a solar power battery for later use, or it can be used as it's being generated, for purposes such as charging electronic devices. Although the slats do automatically change their angle to track the sun, the blinds can also be manually operated via an iOS/Android app. Not only does the software allow users to open and close the blinds at will, but it also lets them set the blinds on a schedule, monitor how much energy they're producing, or even set them so that they open whenever someone enters the room (they have a built-in motion sensor.
