Feedback from SolMan Classic Portable Solar Generator Users
"The SolMan unit has been great—no troubles at all and it's still chugging away with the house up in the mountains. It withstood a cold winter without any problems, and we are still so happy with it."
-Merete Mueller, Tiny Home, and SolMan Owner, Producer of "TINY - The Movie"
"We searched for some time for a solar PV training unit and were unimpressed with what the market had to offer. So many educational units were either toy-like, unwieldy, extremely expensive, or all of the above.
"We just received our first SolMan Classic unit from (SolSolutions) and we were quite impressed. The workmanship, the portability, and the completeness (from a solar PV systems perspective) are all top-notch. Our electrical controls lead instructor was surprised at the quality of the unit, and we’re already finding additional uses (earth-day demo for starters) for the portable solar generator beyond the classroom."

SolMan Classic Portable Solar Generator Hybrid System
Drawing heavy energy loads?
Don't have enough sun to keep up with your energy usage?
Want 24/7 Off-Grid Power?
The SolMan portable solar generator can also function as a key component of a hybrid energy system that will provide electricity for off-grid living or emergency power for homes, farms or businesses. The SolMan and a gas generator are a powerful combination to guarantee power for your essential needs.
Simply plug a gas generator into the SolMan for super fast battery recharging. Use your solar generator most of the time for low to average electric uses, but if you need higher electrical output or your batteries are depleted, a gas generator can provide supplemental power and recharge your SolMan faster than the sun.
This hybrid system drastically reduces running times and costs for the gas generator, while providing 24/7, 365 days/year electricity!
Feedback on SolMan Classic Portable Solar Generators
"I just wanted to write to you and say thank you for such a wonderful product! I purchased a SolMan mobile solar generator in May 2011... for emergency use. After I purchased the unit you were very understanding at answering all my novice questions. You mentioned to me to just keep it plugged in to keep the batteries topped off, and I did.
"So this July 2016 we experienced a major power outage that went from Jackson, Wy to Idaho to Montana! My wife was very concerned about our freezers, refrigerator and our 60-gallon fish tank. It was going on four hours before I got home and I texted her not to worry because we have the SolMan. I was banking on the unit to perform.
"When I got home I ran extension cords off the back of the unit to the freezers, refrigerator and the fish tank. Perfect! The bubbles filled the tank, the lights came on inside the freezers and I had our cell phones and I-pads charging within 15 mins! And that was just on stored battery power, no sun on the panels. I couldn't wait till it got dark and unplug the freezers for the night and turn on my lamps and look over at all my neighbors burning candles for light. However, the power came back on before that.
"The best investment to make if your serious about keeping your family safe in an emergency is to purchase a SOLMAN! My family and I Thank you!"
