Solatube and The Solar Impulse Foundation Top 1000

Hometech are honoured to announce that Solatube TDDs (Tubular Daylighting Devices) are among the first innovations to receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label by The Solar Impulse Foundation. The Solar Impulse foundation works closely with the United Nations and collaborates with government organisations such as the European Commission, World Bank and UNESCO.

Bridging the gap between ecology and economy, The Solar Impulse Foundation aims to select and promote worldwide 1,000 economically profitable solutions designed to protect the environment. This label is awarded to innovations that combine technical feasibility criteria, positive social and environmental impact and economic profitability.

Solatube was selected under the SDG11 — Solutions for sustainable cities and communities category. TDDs have become the ideal solution for lighting interiors in a cost-effective, energy-efficient and eco-friendly way because they significantly reduce the need for electricity while keeping people connected to the outdoor environment. The incorporation of optical technologies significantly improves the way daylight is captured and delivered to interiors. Solatube Daylighting Systems are modular and easy to connect to ceiling systems. And unlike traditional skylights, they are designed to control the problematic aspects of sunlight, effectively reducing glare and inconsistent light patterns. They also screen infrared rays that can overheat interiors as well as ultraviolet rays that can fade furniture and fabrics.

Using a sustainable product like Solatube helps homeowners harvest daylight in the pursuit of smart green design.
