Soluminos

We exist to provide clean energy to people where they need it and when they need it most.

What We Do

We are developing a rapidly deployable solar charging station designed for durability and reliability in disaster relief applications.

Our solar suitcase consists of 500W of solar power and a 2.4 kWh battery sourced from second life batteries. We believe in a circular economy and creating solutions that will reduce waste and provide reliable power from clean resources at an affordable price.
