Ascent Solar launches EnerPlex products in Australia and South Pacific

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc of Thornton, CO, USA, which makes lightweight, flexible copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic modules that it integrates into its EnerPlex series of consumer products, has launched its consumer products in 25 of Anaconda’s Adventure Superstores throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific region.

“Anaconda is proud to be partnered with off-grid consumer power solutions from EnerPlex; after looking for the best products to showcase in store, EnerPlex was the first-choice supplier for this unique offer,” says Benjamin Rieson of Anaconda.

EnerPlex offers a complete portable power solution by uniting its lightweight and rugged solar with power storage solutions for consumers. With ruggedized products, which can withstand the harshest environments, EnerPlex provides a charging solution for consumers who want to get off the grid, says Ascent Solar.

“Australasia and the South Pacific is a rich target market for the EnerPlex brand, with many citizens living off the grid and away from traditional power sources,” says John Masanik, EnerPlex’s manager of business development. “Our partnership with both [distributor] SeeChange and Anaconda will allow us to immediately penetrate these markets with 25 physical retail locations,” he adds.

“When we researched who was buying our mobile power products we were surprised how many were camping, tramping, hunting, fishing, hiking and biking enthusiasts,” says SeeChange’s managing director Joe Caccioppoli. “These customers have unique requirements as their technology must be able to handle the rigors of being used outdoors and they also have the opportunity to leverage Mother Nature to provide power,” he adds. “To support this large consumer group we needed to add to our portfolio the very best suppliers of outdoors designed mobile power products. As EnerPlex has a wide range of quality, multi-award winning innovative products, they were an obvious choice for us. Their solar technology in particular is the best in the market, delivering better performance in variable light conditions and more power per kilogram than any other product we have found. SeeChange is very proud to be the exclusive distributor for EnerPlex in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.”
