Mobile Photovoltaic Power Generators

Mobile PV generators use components similar to those found on stand-alone (non-grid-connected) PV systems, but are configured for the harsh demands placed on portable generators. The PV panels are designed to handle rough conditions on a jobsite and are mounted on a trailer to minimize travel damage. Mobile Solar Power (one of BuildingGreen’s Top-10 Green Building Products for 2009—see

EBN Dec. 2009), Mobile Green Power, and Energy Acumen make enclosed trailers that protect electronic components from the elements, while Pure Power Distribution and SolaRover opt for an open-trailer design.
