Off-Grid Home Solar System in a Box
Pocatello-based Inergy Solar launching a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on Tuesday, November 17, at 9:00 a.m. PST to help fund the mass production of its innovative and portable home solar system in a box, the Kodiak Solar Generator System.

POCATELLO, Idaho – November 16, 2015 – Living without power during blackouts, or relying on gas-powered generators are now concerns of the past. Pocatello-based clean technology company Inergy Solar, is releasing an innovative product that combines all the elements of an off-grid home solar system in a highly portable, lightweight package that debuts on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo November 17 at 9:00 a.m. PST. The Kodiak Solar Generator stores energy produced from Inergy Solar’s lightweight, portable solar panels using an integrated lithium-ion battery pack – the same type used in today’s electric vehicles. The stored energy can then be used to power a variety of everyday products, from lights and laptops to full sized refrigerators and TV’s.

“The Kodiak is the world’s lightest weight, most compact, expandable, and modular solar system, offering unmatched off-grid portability for power anywhere, at any time. The Kodiak can be charged via solar panels, car chargers, or wall outlets in order to provide days of power for your every need, no matter where you are,” said Inergy Solar CEO Sean Luangrath.

Created as an alternative to fuel powered generators, the Kodiak is completely silent, emits no exhaust or fumes, and recharges using unlimited power from the sun. At only 20 pounds and small enough to fit on a bookshelf, it’s also far more portable than anything on the market. The ultra lightweight solar panels used with the system are a fraction of an inch thick and shatterproof. Each panel is designed to slide together to generate additional solar power, reducing the time it takes to charge the Kodiak.

To achieve the project’s goal of $50,000, the Inergy Solar team is looking to Indiegogo for initial funding. The Kodiak Solar Generator will be offered on the Indiegogo website for 30 days at a discounted rate to secure early orders and help raise the funds needed to jumpstart mass production.

“Indiegogo was our main choice because their staff has been extremely supportive from the very beginning and their platform has been wildly successful in launching new, life-changing products to the world,” said Luangrath.

The campaign launches on Indiegogo on Tuesday and is scheduled to wrap up on December 18. The company has set aside a limited quantity of units available for Christmas delivery, with large-scale availability in early 2016.
