Rayton Solar Review: Watch the Video
Solar and other renewable energy sources continue to expand, yet they still account for barely 12 percent of all the electricity that the world consumes.
As you see in the video, Rayton’s proprietary particle accelerator solar technology uses just a sliver of the expensive raw material needed make a solar cell, enabling us to reduce the cost substantially and bringing solar power charging to various electronics.
