Well they do not need sunlight, but it makes things a lot more efficient.

It would very much defy the purpose of not having to have another form of power supply around

You lack the right spirit. A good snake-oil seller would start selling Moon light solar panels for three times the price.

Our solar panels incorporate our patented time-translation asymmetry technology, which, as a consequence of Noether's theorem, allows them to violate conservation of energy.

Tell them to use the panel to power a light fixture, which in turn will illuminate the panel. Simple.

Well, it does not necessarily require it...

When the gloomy Moscow spring refuses to cooperate with your brand spanking new solar powered project, you can always use the Sun Replacer:


Comes precalibrated to produce mid-latitude daylight at a distance of 89cm.


It really gives you the sense of scale of just how bright the sun is - this thing can only produce sunlight over maybe a square meter of a surface, so you would need dozens of them to light up a room the way the sun would have if there was no roof.

And yet, just one of them already look absurdly bright.

Today a speedtrap in Zurich photographed a low-flying duck, because it was doing 50 km/h in a 30 zone
