This is the idea that all objects that are exposed to daylight could have a solar element applied so that the object, whatever it is, can capture and store energy from the sun during its use. This is to include objects that can move not just static objects like office blocks, houses or road signs.
The key point to this idea is the connection of the individual to the electricity grid. If the person collecting the energy can connect to the grid, then they could not only use the energy for all their energy requirements but also could sell any excess to the grid for others to buy.
It could include solar receptors in clothes, vehicles, golf bags, and so on. The thinking is not to just power the device the receptor inhibits. For example, a golf buggy could be solar powered. However a golf buggy sat idle all day and not used could still sit outside and capture energy, the incentive for the owner would be to not waste the power or the opportunity to capture it, and plug it back into the main grid to be sold, and used by others.
The more solar power generated the less need for dirty methods of energy generation.
The adopters could be cost negative, meaning they do not only power everything they use for zero cost, but they also gain an income from selling any excess back to the grid.
Manufacturers will be under pressure to include solar receptors in their products as the end users can benefit from the passive nature of energy collection.
The problem is creating a physical solution which can syphon the energy from each individual item and transfer it into a solar storage system which can then power the users other devices first and then also a connection to the grid so that excess energy is sold.
