On tonight’s Shark Tank we meet an energy alternative company called Grouphug Solar.
Based in New York City, this small company has been turning heads and expanding their business as people learn how easy it is to go solar. Now, it hopes to catch the interest and the eye of one of the sharks.
The star item is the Window Solar Charger, a designer solar panel that charges your devices. Unlike most solar panels, you can easily hang this one in any window.
For those people who rent or can’t install solar panels on their roofs, this is the no brainer way to be more eco-friendly. There is a built-in rechargeable battery in the bamboo frame so you can charge anytime.
But what makes it so special and where can we buy one?
We have the details for our zero waste lovers and those who are concerned about renewable energy sources! And because renewable energy shouldn’t be so complicated, the company has designed clever items for people on the go and at home that save real money.
Grouphug Solar on Shark Tank: What makes it special?
Harvest solar energy from your window. No roof panels are required as the clever solar panels — in catchy and cute designs — can capture the sun’s energy and then create an energy bank to charge your devices.
Grouphug founder Krystal Persaud is an industrial designer from Georgia Tech who created the technology for Grouphug.
The company also provides its items to commercial solar installers and other businesses with easy-to-install, stunning solar panels of any shape or size.
The company’s core business is to offer designs in solar panels for functional, fun alternatives to electricity generated from fossil fuels.
Where you can buy it?

Also, on tonight’s show, catch the small company Boho Camper Vans as it makes a plea to the sharks.
Will the sharks be impressed by the energy-saving designs of Grouphug Solar? Will they do better or worse than KisLuv did last week on the show?
We’ll have to tune in and see.
