SAN DIEGO, CA (June 24, 2013) – Pioneering solar product manufacturer Blue Sky Energy, Inc. has been recognized as the RV West Readers' Choice Award Winner for "Favorite New or Innovative RV Product" this year. The magazine's readers singled out Blue Sky Energy for its feature-rich, entry-level solar charge controller, the Sun Charger 30, that is tailored to fit the needs of the avid RV market.

In its 13th year of publication, RV West magazine is the #1 leading publication in Western Canada focused on delivering news and product information to the burgeoning RV market. Its audience of 910,000 readers is surveyed each year to get a pulse on what products and services RV owners and enthusiasts enjoy and recommend buying.

"We are very pleased to recognize excellence in RV sales, service, destinations and products through our Readers' Choice Awards program," said Keith Powell, Publisher of RV West magazine. "We salute companies like Blue Sky Energy on delivering value to readers of RV West who recognize their commitment to quality and service."

The RV community's needs for rugged, flexible, and affordable solutions for off-grid power made the Blue Sky Energy Sun Charger 30 a crowd favorite. While many new manufacturers have released products for the off-grid solar market this year, Blue Sky Energy's long-term commitment to the RV market enables them to develop leading technology specifically suited to the consumer's needs.

"Blue Sky Energy is thrilled that the readers of RV West voted to recognize the key features and great value that our new Sun Charger 30 PWM solar controller provides.

Meanwhile, Blue Sky Energy is forging ahead on its mission to develop two new products for the RV market this year. The soon to be released Solar Boost 3000i is a robust, reliable MPPT charge controller for 36 or 60 cell modules with full IPN network capability. A larger MPPT controller with IPN network in the 60-80 Amp range is slated for release in Q4 2013.
