SPI 2014 - Off-grid Power Technology Leaders Blue Sky Energy and Genasun Join Forces

Blue Sky Energy, Inc. and Genasun, tech leaders in MPPT solar chargers, announce partnership to offer the off-grid industry's most extensive line of power electronics. The partnership will streamline logistics and operations for distributors, dealers, and OEMs that serve the 5W to 1.6kW market.

VISTA, CA and CAMBRIDGE, MA – September 30, 2014 – Today Blue Sky Energy and Genasun, technology leaders in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar charge controllers, announce a partnership to offer the off-grid power industry's most extensive lineup of power electronics and begin co-development of new off-grid products.

Through combining their product offerings, logistics management, and order processing, the Genasun-Blue Sky Energy partnership will streamline operations for distributors, dealers, and OEMs that serve off-grid power users with solar array sizes ranging from 5W to 1.6kW.

"Logistics can be a nightmare for distributors serving the off-grid community who have to deal with dozens of suppliers and thousands of products," said Alex MeVay, Founder and CEO of Genasun. "The Genasun-Blue Sky Energy partnership will simplify sourcing for distributors as they now have a one-stop shop for all of their charge controller needs."

"While power needs and technical requirements for off-grid loads vary widely, it is imperative that all off-grid products are reliable," said John Vrahnos, Director, Global Sales & Marketing at Blue Sky Energy, Inc. "Genasun and Blue Sky Energy share rich histories in the off-grid space and a commitment to product durability. We're excited to partner with Genasun because our product lines dovetail beautifully, which means distributors will have an easier time sourcing charge controllers for a wide variety of applications, including Recreational, Industrial, Street Lighting, Off-Grid, and Military. Genasun's expertise in charging lithium batteries will allow us to provide excellent support to our own customers who are using advanced batteries."

"We have a long history with both Blue Sky Energy and Genasun, so this partnership will definitely make life simpler for us," said Paul Landino, General Manager at e Marine Systems. "We've distributed Blue Sky Energy charge controllers for over eight years, and we tested the Genasun controllers before they came to market. We like to offer a broad blanket of products to fit our customers' needs and deliver the right solution for each customer. My job as a distributor will be a lot easier now that I can purchase and get support for all our charge controllers from one source.

"We are very excited to partner with Blue Sky Energy and offer off-grid customers a full lineup of robust and reliable controllers," said MeVay. "Genasun has focused on efficiency and performance at extreme temperatures, while Blue Sky Energy has developed feature-rich products that give a great user experience – we're looking forward to collaborating on developing off-grid products, combining the best from both companies to engineer products that are rugged, efficient, and easy to use."
