Two New Portable Solar Generators Developed for Clean Power in Remote Areas
Wagan Tech(R) hasÂ announced that it will be showcasing their new solar power generators at the 2012 International CES. The Solar e Power(TM) Cube 1500 and the Solar e Power(TM) Case 450 are both plug and play solar generators that harness the sun’s energy and provide instant access to AC power that is fume and noise free.
According to Alex Hsu, Wagan Tech Vice President of Sales, the Solar e Power Series is expected to empower the developing world, where access to electricity is unreliable. Remote villages can now access electricity instantly.
The two solar generators are self contained power sources which makes setup quick and easy. They are equipped with solar panels, an AGM/Gel Hybrid battery and one of Wagan Tech’s legacy power inverters, all packaged together in a rugged case.
The larger and more powerful of the two units is the Solar e Power Cube 1500. It boasts a 1,500 watt AC inverter and a 55 AH battery packaged in a sturdy, wheeled case. Once wheeled into place the solar panels unfold and slide out providing 80 watts of solar charging to the onboard battery.
The Solar e Power Case 450 is a smaller more compact unit. It features a 450 watt inverter and a 26 AH battery contained in a sturdy metal case with shoulder strap. The 40 watt solar panel unit attaches to the side for easy transport.
Both units can accommodate additional solar panels and batteries if quicker charging or more storage is needed. “We like to think of these units as a ‘home base’ for a solar setup as you can add more panels for quicker charging and you can add more batteries for prolonged use. The scalability of the units allows them to be easily customized to the end user’s needs,” said Alex Hsu, Wagan Tech’s Vice President of Sales.
In addition to applications in developing countries, they can also be used in a “green” environment. Because they are portable and self contained, they are ideal to use in emergencies when back up power is needed or by people working or living in remote locations.
Price and Availability
The Solar e Power Cube 1500 and the Solar e Power Case 450 are available now from Wagan Tech. The MSRP for the Solar e Power Cube 1500 is $1,199.00. The Solar e Power Case 450 has an MSRP of $799.00.
The new Wagan Tech Solar e Power(TM) products will be showcased at 2012 International CES, Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 3 Booth 30269. For more information, visit Wagan Tech’s Online Press Kit.
