Meet SolPad: Improving Access to Energy with the First Fully-Integrated Sustainable Smart Energy System and Software
SolPad is making clean, reliable power accessible to everyone, everywhere with everything needed to collect, store, convert, and manage solar power within one device.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- July 26, 2017 -- SolPad, disrupters of the conventional sustainable and renewable energy landscape, announced today an exclusive bi-coastal media preview of their innovative technology to usher in SolPad's availability launch in 2018.
Solar energy in the United States is changing. In the last decade, solar has experienced an average annual growth rate of 68%, but mass adoption faces challenges. For consumers and homeowners, large, expensive, and disjointed equipment that doesn't easily integrate with other components, makes personal, clean energy independence seem unapproachable. For local governments, emerging cities and NGO's, difficult installs, scalability and on-going maintenance creates barriers to supplying solar energy for the community. SolPad is providing solutions both in the home and at the commercial level, whether the issue is battery storage and ease-of-use or power grid vulnerabilities from growing populations and rolling blackouts. The software behind SolPad is the real differentiator that's changing the solar industry with an all-in-one, scalable solution to renewable energy.
SolPad is the first and only fully-integrated solar system. It has the ability to collect, store, convert, and manage solar power within one device to bring clean, reliable energy to all. SolPad's technology allows for minimal wasted energy and an affordable strategy to accessing personal, clean, reliable energy. Coupled with FlexGrid software system, which links SolPads together with the world's first self-architecting AC micro-grid, SolPad creates easy scalability for an immense amount of energy. The innovative technology has the power to change the way we think about personal renewable power, and democratize energy for all.
"We put smart thermostats in our home to save on heat and air. SolPad extends that savings further to the entire home, not just heat and air," said Christopher Estes, CEO of SolPad. "The reality is that SolPad completely shifts the energy paradigm, delivering comprehensive management and control for daily power usage."
"Everyone is responsible for their impact on the environment. SolPad Mobile allows people to take energy management into their own hands, reducing carbon footprint and giving access to AC electricity anywhere. Whether you're in an industrialized nation trying to decrease negative impacts on the environment or in a developing nation looking to save money versus fossil fuels, this disruptive portable panel provides unparalleled access to clean and easy-to-use power." Jigar Shah, co-founder of Generate Capital, past CEO of Carbon War Room.
SolPad Pro X serves as SolPad's permanent solution to collect and store solar power, integrating it seamlessly into your home for a smarter way to use the power of the sun. Overall, SolPad Pro X 's purchase and installation is as much as half the cost of any market alternative. SolPad's power system generates as much power as you need and ensures minimal wasted energy while increasing your available AC power.
SolPad Pro X panels store both solar and grid energy. By placing storage at the source of solar collection, inefficiencies in transmission and conversion are reduced or eliminated entirely. Because collection and storage are adjacent within each SolPad Pro X panel, low voltage battery power is used to make the panels safer and more efficient than legacy solar systems.
SolPad Pro X effortlessly unites with all SolPad Mobile and SolControl devices and will be available in 2018.
SolControl is the market's only hardware and software solution that integrates solar generation and energy storage with automated energy management by seamlessly tracking, managing, and automating your energy usage. By turning appliances on and off as you enter and leave, SolControl prioritizes which appliances and items use personal solar power or from the grid.
SolControl makes energy management engaging. By gamifying energy collection, storage, and usage consumers become more energy-aware and are able to make consensus decisions on their personal impact on the environment.
The SolControl app can effectively turn any device into a connected appliance, using optical pairing via a smartphone camera for easy pairing, showcasing a gridometer to show how much power is being used, with insights of monitoring and feedback features. SolControl is available for pre-order now for $49.00 at https://store.solpad.com/
Media demos of all SolPad products will be available in San Francisco, CA, New York, NY and other select locations.
