The New ElectroLighter™ Sparks Excitement!

The creators of the world’s most powerful portable solar charger, SunJack, just released the ElectroLighter™ – a USB rechargeable flameless fire-starter. Placentia, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2016   Since Carl Auer Von Welsback first patented ferrocerium in 1903, not much has changed in the way of handheld lighters–until today. SunJack’s latest product release of its ElectroLighter™ is the next evolution of handheld fire starting devices. The ElectroLighter™ is wind resistant, waterproof and, like all of SunJack’s products, can be fueled entirely by the sun. “We decided to add the ElectroLighter™ to our product line because the ability to create fire is essential to human life.” says Harold Tan, CMO. “Our products appeal to campers, disaster preppers, and developing communities, and they can all benefit from an effective, renewable fire-starter in their arsenal.” This lighter is the stuff of sci-fi fantasies–emitting a high-pitched laser hum as an electrical current arcs across a dual cross-heat-X-beam. The ElectroLighter™ is USB charged and can power up in less than an hour directly from any SunJack Panel, PowerBank, or USB power source with an output of 5 Volts-DC and current above 300mAh. A fully charged ElectroLighter™ can last up to 80 presses. When the ElectroLighter™ is fully charged, a built in intelligent circuit indicator lights up and turns off charging to save its battery life. The SunJack solar panel can fully charge the ElectroLighter™ from the sun’s energy–making the ElectroLighter™ and its SunJack accessories ideal for travel, outdoor adventures and emergency usage. The ElectroLighter™ is compact and slim, easily fitting in the palm of your hand or in your pocket measuring in at 4.75″ x 3.75″ x 1.25″ (12cm x 9.5cm x 3.2cm) and, like all of SunJack’s products comes with a no hassle one year warranty.

Arizona decides to keep net metering…for now

Arizona decides to keep net metering…for now

Solar homeowners in Arizona breathed a collective sigh of relief this August as the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) voted to maintain full net-metering incentives and reject mandatory demand charges for solar customers.   The vote ruled against the state’s rural electric company UniSource Energy (UNSE), which sought the approval of legislators to increase the fees on approximately 100,000 solar customers by an additional $31 a month.     The ACC’s decision to hold off on rate increases aligns with an Administrative Law Judge’s recommendation to wait until an analysis of a docket entitled “Value of Solar” is completed, before making any decisions that would impact solar customers. The Value of Solar docket is scheduled to be concluded by October 2016, with a final decision on net metering for UNSE customers to be concluded by March 2017.   The outcome of the UNSE case is being closely monitored by solar proponents and detractors, as the rural utility company is one of five in Arizona that are looking to eliminate...

GoGreenSolar increases energy independence with Sonnen Batterie

GO GREEN SOLAR is proud to announce that it is now one America’s select distributors of the SONNEN BATTERIE, a smart and elegant energy storage system that allows homeowners to keep and use the excess energy their solar arrays produce.   The addition of a Sonnen Batterie to a solar home allows for greater independence from energy companies, which have unpredictable rates and charge higher prices during peak energy hours.   “Sonnen offers smart technology that allows for management of energy usage within the home, such as controlling the time to use appliances to reduce electricity.”   Recent pressure from Big Energy on state legislators to do away with net-metering incentives and raise KW per hour rates on solar homeowners has sparked nationwide controversy, stimulating many of these homeowners to look for ways to further cut ties with the conventional energy grid.   The Sonnen Batterie offers these energy producing homeowners one such solution by combining powerful lithium-iron-phosphate battery cells, smart metering technology and a friendly user interface into a well designed wall unit that  harvests energy from a solar array or grid during peak energy hours, when rates are cheapest, and uses the stored energy when the rates are more expensive.     Designed by the German-based company to look minimalistic and sleek, fitting on the wall of any conventional home, the battery can save up to an additional 75% on electrical bills.   “Sonnenbatterie has integrated smart meter technology into every unit, allowing our customers to switch to battery power automatically when they are reaching their demand charge limits,” said Boris von Bormann, Country Manager of Sonnenbatterie North America   The battery, which is immediately available for purchase in the United States from Go Green Solar, also comes with the unique benefit of tapping into the Sonnen Batterie Community. Owners of the battery automatically become members of the Sonnen Community, which connects them off-the-grid to on another, allowing them to share excess energy or purchase excess energy from members at rates that pay better and cost less than those offered by electricity providers.   The Sonnen Batterie features smart phone capabilities that track energy usage, lasts up to 10,000 charging cycles and can scale out to meet a home’s energy needs.   Go Green Solar is an affiliate of Gigawatt Inc, developing solutions like home solar distribution since 2006 to help people stay powered.   Sonnen Batterie has been the leading European manufacturer of next generation smart residential and commercial energy storage solutions since 2011.   The two companies recently joined forces to bring homeowners using solar a smarter, more economical and efficient way to step off...

Nevada legislator pulls plug on solar incentives

Nevada legislator pulls plug on solar incentives

  The Nevada Supreme court dealt its state solar industry a blow Aug. 4 after denying a ballot measure to halt recent rate hikes for solar users. Previous to the court’s denial, the chances for the measure to pass had looked promising, with it gathering more than double the number of needed signatures to place a referendum on the November ballot. According to FoxNews, until this year net-metering subsidies for Nevada’s 17,000 homeowners using solar totalled an annual million. A state commission subsequently decided that since the state was a approaching a cap on the number of net metering participants, it would allow the Nevada Power and Utilities Commission to enact new rates for rooftop solar customers. Last spring the state legislature voted accept the PUC rates and end subsidies, nearly tripling fixed monthly fees for solar customers from .75 to .51. “What started as a legislative policy to kickstart the industry, now 18 years later, it’s time for that industry to stand on its own two feet,” Fox News quoted Paul Thomsen, chairman of Nevada’s Public Utility Commission. If there is a silver lining, however, it’s that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has requested that next year’s bill “grandfather” existing customers back to their old rates. NV Energy took similar steps, pursuing an effort to do the same through the PUC. In other words, those Nevada citizens that seized the opportunity to convert their homes to solar before the subsidies were ended, will still get to enjoy the low, fixed energy rates promised to them by the state. As for the fate of the Nevada homeowners that weren’t quick enough to secure the grandfathered rates in time, advocates are looking to take a more long term approach to winning back subsidies by going through the state...
