We all know that there are a lot of options when it comes to solar power these days, at least when it comes to full size units for a home or cabin and maybe even more options if you are looking for small portable power for your phone, tablet, and other electronic devices. The gap, where there is still a lot of room for development, is in the in-between area, with portable, yet powerful, solar power units. There are options out there of course, but this is the area where there are probably the fewest options available and anything new and innovative is worth a look, and an entire power system in a can is certainly new and innovative.
This is where the solar power system in a can comes in. It is an entire system, panels, batteries, inverters, and more when you factor in the other modular options that you can swap out to meet a variety of needs. The entire system fits into a 50 gallon drum and is relatively easy to transport. They are targeted towards events, emergency shelter, tiny house or even a backup system for a larger cabin or home, as well as disaster relief, medical clinics, refugee camps, and other situations where having full size systems would be too much of a challenge, and small electronic charges fall far too short. They are compact, with everything fitting in the drum for transport, which also makes them extremely portable for so much available power and 2 people can set up or tear it down in about half an hour. Each unit is around $2,500 and there are several optional add-ons and upgrades so you can tailor it to fit your own personal needs.
