A solar shed is disclosed comprising a secure shelter for battery-powered electric tools, such as lawnmowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers, and further comprising photovoltaic cells built into the sloped roof of the solar shed. The electricity generated by the photovoltaic cells is routed to the batteries of the electric tools in the interior, so that the batteries are recharged for later use. The solar sheld is marketed in prefabricated components, having a square floor plan so that the walls and the roof can be oriented in any of four directions with respect to each other, in particular, so that the slope of the roof can be oriented to face a generally southward direction, regardless of where the user wishes to locate the shed on the site. This will allow for adequate exposure of the photovoltaic cells to sunlight. The increase in height in the interior of the solar shed resulting from the sloped roof allows the walls to be shorter and therefore more manageable for easier assembly. Taller users can locate the door so that, upon entering the solar shed, the user has more headroom resulting from the sloped ceiling. In addition, the solar shed has its own battery-powered features, such as lighting, which are recharged by the same photovoltaic cells.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
