Counting on Solar Power for Disaster Relief

    Research output: NRELFact Sheet


    When disaster strikes, electric power is usually the first critically important service to be lost. After several years of research and development, portable electric generator sets (gensets) are now entering the marketplace. The new gensets make use of solar electric panels known as photovoltaics (PV) to produce electricity. These gensets are reliable, safe to operate, highly mobile and willsupply much-needed power for emergency response teams.
