SolSolutions Powers Stanford Solar Decathlon Team
On-Location Solar Power and Lighting Fuels Stanford's Start.Home Sustainability Goals
Santa Rosa, California – Aug 16, 2013 – Stanford’s bid to build a zero net energy home at the 2013 Solar Decathlon leaps forward with the addition of on-site lighting and power from SolMan portable solar generators and solar light towers.
The Solar Decathlon is a bi-annual US Department of Energy sponsored contest that tests university teams from around the world on their ability to create effective and efficient solar-powered homes. The contest, which began in 2002, will take place in 2013 from October 3rd through 13th at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California.
Stanford University is one of the teams and will be participating under the Start.Home label. The Stanford Start.Home team is especially focused on building a dynamic solar-powered home that can be personlized for the owner based on their desires and needs.
To help progress the Start.Home mission and goals for their Solar Decathlon entry, SolSolutions is sponsoring the project and will be providing all the power and lighting needed for the team during the building process.
“Previously, the only option for teams builiding and operating their solar homes on location was gas generators. This is no longer the case and the Stanford Start.Home team is at the forefront of change. The utilization of portable solar power and lighting for efficient building projects like the Solar Decathlon contest is perfect, with the SolMan line showcasing this potential,” said SolSolutions CEO and owner Chaz Peling.
The Stanford team will be using two SolMan Tower of Power solar light towers, one SolMan Lithium Deluxe premium solar generator and additional LED lighting to support all their energy and lighting needs as they build their solar home. Furthermore, SolSoluitons will stay on-site during the contest and provide area lighting and power, as well as solar cell-phone charging.
