These Solar Panels Harvest Energy From Rain

Solar cells have a dramatically reduced performance on rainy days.
New solar panels created by Chinese researchers take energy from the friction of falling raindrops, as well as the sun, so it’s an effective source of renewable energy all year round. They could even make raincoats that charge your phone.
These panels use an energy harvesting structure that integrates a solar cell and a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) device is built to realize power generation from both sunlight and raindrops.
