Austin, Texas (July 2022) Rising temperatures in the summer and severe weather in the winter is forcing Americans in both urban and rural areas to find solutions to an increased frequency of rolling blackouts as vulnerable power grids become less dependable. FlexSolar sought to meet the increased demand for power solutions through the creation of their 1000W Portable Power Station, taking into consideration the need to power both small devices and large appliances. With more people than ever affected by rising energy costs, rolling blackouts, and power accessibility, FlexSolar offers solutions to prepare homeowners for every situation.
“According to a new report commissioned by the ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas), the state of Texas is likely to face power shortages for the next 10 years. Unless new power plants are set up to meet the growing demands, and improved economic incentives are offered to guarantee power reliability, Texans face a bleak future when it comes to meeting their electricity needs.” The story is consistent among many states facing their own issues including California after PG&E announced plans to increase the number of customers affected by outages in hopes of limiting risks of fire amongst peak season. In the Midwest “The region's grid operator, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO), has already warned of potential capacity shortfalls and other reliability concerns in the north and central regions of its coverage area.”
Paired with FlexSolar’s ecosystem of energy solutions which includes portable solar panels, the 1000W Power Station provides reliable energy when it is most needed. The Portable Power Station from FLEXSOLAR offers 2000W peak power with two AC outlets, two USB quick charge output ports (each 18W max), one bidirectional USB PD Type-C input/output, one DC car auxiliary power outlet (120W max), and one DC output 120W max, allowing the device to power refrigerators, air conditioners and other vital appliances. The rugged black and orange device weighs just under 19lbs with a handle for easy transportation and can connect with an app via Bluetooth to control input/output of the power station. FlexSolar’s 1000W Power Station is available through their website www.flexsolarenergy.com, which also offers solar arrays for any situation including portable and installation options.
Additionally, the FlexSolar ecosystem of power solutions are an environmentally safe alternative to gasoline and propane generators which are being increasingly regulated due to fire risk and noise concerns. A recent fire that broke out in California caused by a newly purchased generator, raised concerns about the safety standards of gasoline generators in extreme weather. Increased risks of energy shortages on the horizon from low water levels in dams forcing hydroelectric plants to shut down, to a 45% increase in the cost of natural gas in 2022, and increased energy demand across the country, gives good reason to investigate solutions such as FlexSolar’s Power Station.
FlexSolar, a leader in organic solar technologies, was founded in 2009 to provide on-the-go power solutions to meet growing demands for mobile energy. Over the years FLEXSOLAR has expanded its technologies to include its iconic foldable panels that deliver 40W of power, enough to power most all smartphones, tablets, Type-C powered laptops, small power stations, and more. For larger energy needs, their line of fold-out and briefcase style solar panels provide 200W of power, as well as instillation units for boats, RVs, and camper vans. With the release of their new 1021Wh Power Station, users will enjoy a lasting solution to all their power needs. Empowering adventure through harnessing the power of light with FLEXSOLAR.
