Envision Solar International, Inc., the leading developer and provider of solar integrated building systems, launched LifePod', a 10'x12' do-it-yourself, system-built photovoltaic solar structure, at the February 20, 2008, Global Green USA's Pre-Oscar Party in Hollywood.
La Jolla, Calif. (Feb 25, 2008) ó Envision
and provider of solar integrated building
systems, launched LifePod', a do-it-yourself,
system-built photovoltaic solar structure, at the
February 20, 2008, Global Green USA's Pre-
Oscar Party in Hollywood.
LifePod's' versatility and high-energy output
creates a major shift in residential and small
business access to solar technologies across
the globe. LifePod' is a scaled-down version
of Envision Solar's flagship product,
LifePort', a fully integrated system-built, doit-
yourself, photovoltaic solar carport. The 120
square foot solar structure can be used as an
enclosed pool house, cabana, storage facility
(for motorcycles, sports equipment, and
garden supplies), playhouse, pet house, music studio, private home office, emergency
shelter, and a wide variety of other uses.
LifePod's' integrated solar panels have a 1.7 kilowatt DC rating and produce over seven
kilowatt hours per day (that translates to about 60 percent of a Southern California
home's baseline allocation). In addition to the monthly savings of $35-50 per month,
residents who purchase a LifePod' are eligible to receive cash incentives of up to $5,450
from their utility and federal tax rebates of $2,000. Businesses that purchase the
LifePod' can receive even greater benefits.
Assembling a LifePod' is simple and can be done in four hours or less. None of the 15
preassembled steel pieces weighs more than 75 pounds, allowing owners to assemble
their LifePod' without the help of a contractor. Additionally, LifePod's' footprint is
only 120 square feet and normally does not require a structural building permit, providing
users with greater flexibility when setting up their solar system.
Envision's chairman and CEO, Robert Noble, LEED' AP, said, "The LifePod' by
Envision Solar is a versatile and cost-effective system that greatly reduces small
businesses and residents' energy dependency." Noble also said, "Now that we all
understand that global warming is a reality and our use of fossil fuels is extremely
damaging to our planet, let's do everything we can to deploy real solutions now."
