Sunolar was formed more than 20 years ago as a solar panel distributor; later solar lighting became a major focus. We are now focused on improving the life expectancy and long-term value proposition of solar lighting products. We create innovative solar products that last not just one season, but for years.
Sunolar is focused on two main solar voltaic areas. solar collectors of some sort, and low-power DC devices: lights, sensors, batteries, refrigeration, freezers, regulators, motors, pumps and other low-power DC devices.
Sunolar is aggressively developing core LED lighting and LED driver technology. Light panels are another product opportunity awaiting excellence.
The sun powers our world, the light, heat and energy it gives the Earth is constant. Sunolar is uniquely positioned at the convergence of solar, LED lighting, DC power and storage technologies.
Our first SUNOLAR logo was super basic. We began importing low-cost solar panels with the original SUNOLAR logo. It was an exciting and exhilarating time.
Our first serious SUNOLAR logo was colorful and a bit wavy. Solar was growing in 2007 with solar panels being the hot solar product, particularly on the West Coast, and solar lighting quality was improving.
In 2012 the logo changed with the times, our focus was solar lighting, solar panels, and inverters during this era.
In 2017 a new SUNOLAR logo with a tri-color scheme was introduced. This was a time of lost solar dreams. A combination of Chinese solar panel dumping tariffs in 2014, followed by additional Trump tariffs in 2018 on all solar products devastated importers in the solar industry. The industry has recovered by moving manufacturing outside China, but still off-shore.
Solar power continues to prove itself in a variety of application from large to small project. Even though silicone prices have recently slowed their decrease, due primarily to tariffs, as the performance continues its increase, solar's attractiveness naturally expands. An important aspect of success in any long-term solar enterprise is access to large-scale in-country manufacturing; a critical strategic and logistic advantage.
Solar, LEDs, and storage are unique and exciting technical opportunities; each with exceptional untapped applications. Together they represent a convergence seldom seem in the business; presenting a unique opportunity not unlike the initial days of electric lighting in the late 1800's.
If AC lights bulbs are dead..........will DC devices take over all lighting?
