e_arrows.jpgsolis3Productive Product: From the UK's Techworld magazine, "A small US startup has announced technology for running Wi-Fi routers in remote places using only the power of the sun. Among the first round of products from Solis Energy is the Solar Power Plant, touted as being capable of supplying 12, 24 and 48 Volts DC for use in standalone applications such as surveillance cameras and outdoor Wi-Fi." Solis is located in an Orlando suberb so they have plenty of sunlight to test it with ... would this still work in Seattle? Regardless, the company has some competitors, which generally indicates there is a real market opportunity -- and that is a good thing instead of having to dig up the landscape to run power lines.
