World's Largest Mobile Solar Powered Generator, Ecos PowerCube, Ready for Remote, Off-Grid Demonstrations

Manufacturing firm Ecosphere Technologies has announced completion of the first Ecos PowerCube, the world’s largest mobile, deployable solar powered generator. The device can generate up to 15 kilowatts and offers numerous applications from military to disaster relief, to humanitarian efforts, residential and retail.

Designed to meet the growing demand for off-grid energy and telecommunications, with a unique array of stacked solar panels, the patented Ecos PowerCube maximizes the total amount of solar power generation possible in 10', 20' and 40' standard ISO shipping container footprints.

"This innovative patented solar technology has the potential to be one of the most important solar patented innovations of our generation," Dean Becker, director and intellectual property strategist for Ecosphere Technologies, said in a statement. "The company is ready to begin immediate demonstrations and looks forward to working with strategic partners across a wide variety of industries and applications globally to monetize this unique asset."

According to the company, the Ecos PowerCube is one of more than 35 patented and patent-pending technologies owned by the firm. Last year, Ecosphere Technologies reported revenue of $22.1 million, up $19.9 million compared to the previous year.
