A new electric kettle is getting the green light from the US Food and Drug Administration.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said on Thursday that the first commercial electric kettle made with solar panels and batteries is ready to be installed in the United States.

It’s the latest example of how electric technologies can be used to generate power for the home. 

The new electric water kettle was developed by Solaris, an Australian company that makes solar panels for commercial use. 

Solaris has developed solar-based water purifiers and the new electric electric kettle uses solar cells and batteries.

It can also make the use of energy more environmentally friendly.

“This is the first electric kettle that uses solar panels, batteries and a solar panel base,” said Solaris president and CEO, Tony Zawada.

“The company has also developed a number of other solar-panel systems including solar-rechargeable water filtration units, and a water filter.”

Mr Zawadia said the solar-paneled kettle was meant to be “the most sustainable solution for a residential electric water system”.

The new kettle has two solar panels mounted on the front of the kettle. 

It can charge from solar energy or the solar panels provide energy to a battery that the kettle can charge through.

The kettle has an electric motor that produces electricity for the water purifier.

It uses about 100 watts of solar energy to power the water filter and battery, while the solar energy is then used to recharge the battery.

Mr Zowada said the water system uses only 100 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy from the solar panel, with the solar battery powering the water filter. 

“This system does not rely on a lot of electricity and is a very low-energy system,” he said.

“It’s a really low-tech solution that we believe can be built into a modern home.”

The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) had previously approved a similar solar-energy water purification system in the US.

It is expected to go on sale to the public in 2017.

The government agency said the company was making progress with regulatory approvals.

“We are continuing to review all the information and regulatory submissions that we receive to determine if this technology meets the requirements,” said FDA spokeswoman Jessica Johnson.

“In the meantime, Solaris is moving forward with a small-scale demonstration of this technology.”

The company had previously raised about $2.5 million in funding to develop and manufacture the solar water filters.

“Our initial goal is to have the first prototype of the system in 2017 and that’s when the first residential electric kettle will be ready for commercial deployment,” Mr Zawadas said.

The company is also working with the Food and Alcohol Administration (FAO) to develop an electric water filter for use in a food lab. 

A US agency spokeswoman said that there were no plans to expand the technology to other industries.
