Ascent Solar to launch new EnerPlex Kickr Series of products

By Editor


Greentech Lead America: Ascent Solar Technologies, a developer of consumer and off-grid products integrated with state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, is planning to launch the latest additions to its EnerPlex Kickr Series of products at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Summer show.

The company will also introduce its new line of EnerPlex products at the event.

The Kickr line of personal solar chargers is uniquely enabled by the rugged, lightweight and flexible form factor of Ascent’s CIGSsolar cells. They are small enough to be attached to a belt loop yet powerful enough to make sure devices always have a charge.

Kickrs are perfect for consumers who desire a robust and rugged charging solution when off the grid. Unlike chargers produced using traditional mono-crystalline solar which is heavy, fragile and cumbersome, the Kickr line is light, user-friendly and built to withstand even the harshest conditions.

“Our presence at Outdoor Retailer also includes an invitation to product designers to learn about how our unique, lightweight, flexible solar technology can be integrated into a wide variety of innovative consumer and specialty outdoor applications and we look forward to helping them innovate,” said Ascent Solar’s manager of Branding & Marketing, Justin Jacobs.

Just recently Ascent Solar announced it has signed a framework agreement for the establishment of a joint venture with the Government of the Municipal City of Suqian in Jiangsu Province, China.

Under this agreement, in the first phase, Ascent and Suqian will form a joint venture entity in which Ascent will have majority interest of up to 80 percent. The JV will build a factory to manufacture Ascent’s proprietary Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenium (CIGS) photovoltaic modules on flexible thin films.
