Finally, Oliver Meier of the Solar Butterfly Road team commented, "Climate change is a problem that concerns us all. We must decide whether we want to be part of the solution or part of the problem.

We at Solar Butterfly look for, support, and encourage sustainable leaders during this journey. This is just the beginning; we have a lot of work to do".

LONGi's innovative technology behind the butterfly wings

The trailer's design allows the body to expand sideways, transforming it into a "butterfly" with its wings unfolded. The vehicle boosts power generation using highly efficient LONGi solar cells installed on an 80m² surface, integrating a 100% solar-powered trailer system with a configurable living area.

LONGi recognizes the importance of integrating sustainable goals into its business value chain and is committed to continue working with strategic partners on the path to global energy equity, transforming solar energy into an affordable and accessible resource for all.
