These multipurpose plantation shutters block the sun and gather its energy at the same time. The photovoltaic panels on the louvers feed energy into a small inverter that plugs directly into an outlet, which returns power back into your electrical system. The shutters can produce about 500 watts per hour, enough to power TVs, computers and small appliances. Image courtesy of Plug 'n Save Energy Products
