Solardyne.com, Portland, Oregon, was founded by Toby Kinkaid, of Portland, Oregon in 1999.
Solardyne began in 1983 as an Optics R & D Lab focused on increasing the optical power of solar panels, and filed patents for a Solar Demultiplexer solar concentrating lens system.
From earlier research, the MARIPOSA non-imaging concentrator was developed in the early 1990s and was developed by Solardyne.
It is now used at the Sandia National Laboratories since 1994, and was featured in Home Power Magazine (Aug./Sept. 2000).
The MARIPOSA uses optical technology to double the amount of current (amps) produced in PV cells by doubling the Sun's intensity upon them.
Establishing our e-commerce platform in 1999, and becoming registered dealers of Siemens, Kyocera, and BP-Solarex, Solardyne.com was expanded.
Our customers include the U.S. Army, NASA, Greenpeace, Southern California Edison, Clark County Utilities, and numerous individuals and businesses around the world.
One of our most popular original products has been the world's first Personal Utility Solar Power Pack. The "Wireless Utility" uses solar power to charge a sealed battery, providing AC power to individuals anytime, anyplace. Using no throw-away batteries, this solar-powered utility charges the recycled battery pack and can power laptop computers, digital cameras, tv/vcr, cell phones, and anything else that uses up to 300 watts at a time. Included jumper cables allow you to jump start your car if need be!
We have been featured in Solar Today (May/June), Mother Earth News ("Littlest Utility, July 2001), and on numerous websites such as ENN.com, Space.com, Homepower.com, and SolarAccess.com.
Solardyne.com is expanding our product line and growing to better serve our customers.
