Company Description

Vroom Solar produces off-grid do-it-yourself solar energy kits for portable applications. Currently in development, we have our proof of concept, prototype, and core team established - aiming to be in-market by Q4 of 2023 with our first commercial production run.

Key Deal Facts

We believe our DIY solar kits produce 5-10x the output of traditional battery-based portable solar energy systems. Easy to install and no batteries needed - we’ve found our kits to be more cost effective and sustainable than gas generators.

Our initial target market will be the $4.68 Billion small generator industry, as California is in the process of banning the use of <25hp gas engines by 2024. From there, Vroom Solar has the potential to grow into other remote energy needs, like EV charging.

From job sites, to disaster relief, to homeland security - Vroom Solar believes the need for mobile solar energy is more prevalent now than ever. That’s why our founder has taken his expertise in solar technology, and created a kit specifically designed to address these needs, and help those trying to accomplish DIY solar load management.
