About Insolight

Insolight manufactures solar panels and aims to make it more affordable by concentrating sunlight on a smaller solar cell. Its technology redirects sunlight coming from any direction toward the concentrator, which stays at a fixed position and can be mounted like any traditional solar panel. Its solar modules replace the plastic tunnels usually used in agriculture and secure efficient energy production and protection for the crops. Its light transmission control feature allows farmers to optimize crop growth over seasons and climate changes. The company was founded in 2015 and is based in Switzerland.
