Leto Solar Corp. has developed Hemos, a new patent-pending technology that creates solar panels with remote-control capabilities, as well as emergency shut-off, theft protection and digital command execution, all at the module level.
Hemos is designed to allow suppliers to develop a business model closer to that of utilities and provide the consumers with better safety, security and financing options, especially in emerging markets. For investors, Hemos will provide a safety blanket for better financing and leasing models, the company adds.
The technology is also designed to reduce risk by providing a solution to module theft. Stolen modules can be effectively shut down once removed from a system, thereby eliminating any incentive for theft, the company explains.
