This startup is giving renters solar power

Renewable energy is all the rage, but while homeowners can install things like solar panels, renters are being left behind. Fortunately, a Berlin startup is trying to change that.

We Do Solar was founded in September 2021 by Karolina Attspodina and Qian Qin. They’ve created a solar panel kit that you can attach to your balcony or fence — and can help renters reduce their energy bills by up to 25%.

The panels come with mounting straps, a micro-inverter, and a plug. They can be attached to a balcony railing or privacy screen. Once installed, connected, and plugged in, you immediately start generating energy during the day.
