Sunlight Solarium is a solarium startup that aims to make solarium affordable for everyone.
The company has raised $5 million in funding from a group led by former PayPal co-founder and venture capitalist Peter Thiel.
The company, which launched in 2016, is already available in California and Arizona.
Sunlight Solar, which will use its name, is offering a subscription service that will cover a maximum of 1.5 months of electricity costs per month, according to a company release.
That is cheaper than the 1.75-month average for a solar power installation in California, but still significantly higher than solariums nationwide.
Sunshine Solar also offers a two-year subscription, or two solarium-free terms, which comes with a $5 monthly payment.
The two-month term is the most expensive, according a Solarium investor blog post.
The subscription service costs $1,299 per month and is currently available only in California.
The solarium is made of silicon nanoparticles, which are about 2,500 times smaller than a human hair.
Solariums are currently the most widely used solarium, according the Solarium website.
Solariums were created by a group of Chinese engineers and researchers in 2008.
They were first patented by the Chinese government in 2012, and they quickly became a hot commodity in China, with prices soaring from $0.03 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to $10.50 per kWh.
Solar power prices have continued to rise in China in recent years, and a new solarium product is scheduled to be introduced in 2021.
