Minimum investment per investor: 100
Country: Germany
Reason for needing Capital: Other
Stage: Pre-Startup
Ideal Investor Role: Indifferent
Highlights: New technologies have not been used or developed for this product.
Considering there number of cities and towns in the world, the opportunity is enormous. Cities and towns will have the potential to generate Megawatts of power to meet the electric vehicle revolution enabling charging at the curb-side. Excess power can be fed into the national grid reducing the city's power costs.
Investors can invest in their own cities while generating clean energy and earning a return on their investments.
What you offer to investors?: Councils world-wide face severe debt problems. The plan is to profit share with councils on the power generated. Income will be earned well into the future. Initial split between councils and S.S. will be high to recover manufacturing and installation costs with the split reducing over time.

Executive summary:
Additional documents:

I have designed a solar sidewalk paver which has the potential to deliver a step-change in solar power generation world wide.

The paver has a core of concrete into which are set 16 clear glass tiles. This is set into a steel frame with a gap between the bottom of the paver and the base of the steel frame. A pad of solar cells is fitted into the gap. Light passing through the glass tiles falls on the solar cells and electricity is generated. As opposed to 100% glass pavers, the concrete/glass hybrid gives the pavement more grip in wet weather and a higher safety standard.

There are currently circa 4400 major cities in the world with more than triple as many large towns, the opportunity is enormous. Each city or town has the potential to lay between 10,00msq and 30,000msq of solar pavers, meaning cities and towns will have the potential to generate Megawatts of power to meet the need to recharge electric vehicles and other electronic devices at the curb-side.  Excess power can be fed into the national grid offsetting the city's power costs thereby freeing up costs for other essential services.

The plan is not to sell the solar sidewalk, but to profit share with councils on the power generated. This way income can be earned ad infinitum ensuring a consistent revenue stream well into the future.

I have commenced building the Solar Sidewalk prototype but require an injection of funds to bring the product to market faster. Thereafter more capital will be sought for Phase II to launch the product and commence manufacture, marketing and installation on a global scale.
