Sharp Unveils Carbon-Neutral TV at the IFA

Sharp is one of the leading manufacturers of solar panels and at the IFA it had put on display a polycrystalline-type panel that could generate 200kwh/year of electricity -enough to power one of Sharp’s latest 52″ models for 4.5 hours/day.

From PC World:

With the demonstration Sharp isn’t intending to suggest that a household buy a single panel to power their TV but an entire roof of panels to power the whole house, the (Sharp) spokesman said.

Sharp is making massive investments in the field of solar technology and its total production will reach 1 gigawatt of panels a year in the near future.
