About Us

We want to keep you charged with solar power when you are on the go.

What originally started with the idea to recharge batteries for local companies, has now become the mission to power everyone conveniently with sustainable energy. On the go. Wherever you are. As the journey continues we will keep on going as long as the sun keeps shining. Promise.
