New product for using solar power on the road and at home: UNplug
UNplug works with a single solar panel and battery to ensure uninterruptible power during good times and bad. A single system can provide power for a refrigerator, laptop and modem (approximately 1500 watts per unit). The design is future-proof since multiple UNplug units may be connected based on individual needs and budgets.
In addition to realizing uninterruptible energy security and real cost savings, UNplug users will help address environmental challenges. An average fridge/laptop/modem combination consumes approximately 622kWh per year – dumping 326 pounds of CO2 into the environment! That's an equivalent to almost 50 gallons of gasoline consumed.
A successful Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/1dfFaIg) will finance the final product development (including UL listing), manufacturing and testing. The product is scheduled to ship in October 2015.
