DARIEN, Conn., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based solar company, presented Shawn Frayne and Alex Hornstein of Solar Pocket Factory with its Solar Flare Award in recognition of their innovative project.
"The Solar Pocket Factory is trying to revolutionize the way microsolar panels are made," said Soluxe Solar CEO, Jeffrey Mayer, in acknowledging Frayne and Hornstein's product. "If their efforts are successful, they will stimulate a mass market of novel applications for any battery-powered device."
According to the company's founders, the compact, coffee-table sized Solar Pocket Factory can assemble small panels that are thirty percent cheaper and last five times longer than traditionally manufactured microsolar panels. The business claims that the factory can produce one panel every fifteen seconds at various currents, voltages, and dimensions.
"The Solar Pocket Factory could make outsourcing obsolete and support a host of home-grown entrepreneurs who want to incorporate solar into novelties like toys or useful products like phone chargers and flashlights," said Mayer. "Taken to an extreme, the micro-factory could travel to the poorest, most remote areas of the world."
Solar Pocket Factory's early development efforts have been supported by over $75,000 raised in kickstarter funds. For a more in-depth view of the Solar Pocket Factory, visit http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alex9000/the-solar-pocket-factory-an-invention-adventure.
