AspectSolar Launches New, More Efficient EP-60 Solar Panel

Consumer plug-and-play panels highly functional, more durable, and charges devices faster.

Layfayette, Colorado July 31, 2014


AspectSolar, the makers of the International CES-Award Winning SunSocket Solar Generator and the EnergyBar 250, are proud to announce the launch of their latest solar panel: the EP-60. Spring-boarding off the success of the EP-55, the EP-60 improves upon the lightweight, plug-and-play design of its predecessor, while increasing the efficiency and charging power. AspectSolar will debut the EP-60 at their booth (booth PV3338) at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2014 in Salt Lake City, August 6-9, 2014.

"The EP-60 is the next step in AspectSolar's continued dedication to producing the highest-quality solar power products," said Esmond Goei, President and CEO of AspectSolar. "With a more powerful and more efficient solar panel, customers can now experience the freedom to be fully charged a lot faster, no matter where life takes them."

Retaining the thin size that the EP-55 was known for, the EP-60 provides a much more efficient and powerful package, capable of charging the EnergyBar 250 in as little as 7 hours. The EP-60 features Monocrystalline Silicone solar panels, and has a power rating of 60 watts. The high-quality construction and components gives the EP-60 up to 22.4% efficiency.

As with many of the AspectSolar family of solar panels, the EP-60 features AspectSolar's proprietary Maximum Power Point Tracking technology. This key benefit allows the EP-60 user to continually track the sun throughout the sky, drawing the most efficient amount of energy at any time from the solar rays into the panels. LED lights on the EP-60 light up, letting the user known when the solar panel can be positioned in an optimal position.

The EP-60 will be featured as part of the Solar Power Pro 60 and Solar Power Plus 60 Packages, and will also be available as a stand-alone product as well. The EP-60 retails for $349.99 and is available online at http://www.aspectsolar.com.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
