At 13 years old, Georgia Hutchinson invents a way to optimize the production of solar panels!

An American teenager has just won a purse of $ 25,000, as a reward for an invention that optimizes at a lower cost the operation of solar panels.

The principle of the invention is in itself nothing revolutionary. Devices for automatically orienting photovoltaic panels already exist, but these systems call for their part to expensive sensors to detect the movement of our Star.

The solution designed by Californian teenager Georgia Hutchinson works indeed with software that calculates in real time the position of the sun. And this, thanks to the public databases of NOAA, freely accessible. What drastically reduce the costs of optimizing solar installations, while encouraging their deployment.

After obtaining her $ 25,000 reward, the girl now hopes to be able to patent her invention. An amount she also plans to use for her studies. No doubt this is a wise investment; for this 13-year-old girl who did not wait for the number of years to demonstrate her value.
