Tactical Self Contained Solar Power Generator: 1 Series


 Product Description


The SG1A is the mainstay of Always Empowered’s tactical solar power generator line.  It has evolved significantly from the very first unit that was built for fun and largely as an emergency power source by our founder three years ago.  Literally hundreds of units later, and hundreds of happy customers later, the SG1A is a proven workhorse for first responders, preparedness-minded folks, military units, campers, and even off-grid residences. 

The SG1A is a unique product because it is ruggedized and fully self-contained.  If you buy it, it comes to you fully charged and ready to work.  All you need to do is open up the case, throw the panels into the sun, and snap them into the provided connectors.  If you need household electrical power, you just push the power button on the inverter and the system is working.  You’re all set to go.
