DARIEN, Connecicut (PRNewswire) - Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based solar company, has awarded a small South Dakota company with its Solar Flare Award in recognition of its innovative approach to renewable power.
'Small really is beautiful,' said Jeffrey Mayer, Soluxe's president, in recognizing Peppermint Energy of Sioux Falls, SD with the prestigious honor. 'At a time when utility scale power projects have reduced our dependence on carbon-based fuels, this company is creating small-scale applications that will make a difference in people's lives,' he said.
Peppermint Energy recently announced the development of a desktop-sized 'utility in a box,' combining solar power generation and storage in one small unit. Dubbed the Forty2, the unit is powerful enough to run a TV, charge laptops and cellphones, and power small appliances.
'Most solar development is happening on grid,' said Mayer. 'With Forty2, Peppermint Energy takes the benefits of power off grid, potentially bringing power to a billion people who now live far from utility grids.
'When you think of the children who can now study at night and the small businesses that will be able to access information and markets by computer, you can imagine how Peppermint could transform lives,' Mayer added.
Soluxe Solar is committed to helping homeowners and small business owners take advantage of the sun's free energy using solar power systems. Headquartered in Darien, CT, the Soluxe Solar leadership team combines decades of expertise in the energy markets and solar technology.
The Solar Flare Award is given weekly to individuals and companies that are making meaningful and innovative contributions to the world of solar industry and technology.
