Custom Solar Solutions
PowerFilm designs and manufactures custom solar cells, panels, and power solutions for energy harvesting, portable, and remote power applications using proprietary thin-film or high-efficiency crystalline PV technology.
We develop high-quality custom solar solutions for IoT, transportation, military, and consumer applications.
Markets We Serve
Devices used in IoT are often extremely low power, light energy outdoors and indoors can be used to extend or replace traditional batteries, making long-term maintenance-free solutions possible.
Over the past three decades, we have developed custom solutions to meet the needs of many different companies in industries, including telematics, boating, IoT, the United States Military, and space exploration.
PowerFilm’s proprietary manufacturing provides custom amorphous silicon panels that work in any light environment, including the indoor, industrial lighting of many IoT sensor applications.
Celebrating over thirty years in business, PowerFilm is proud to be one of the few US-based solar manufacturing companies operating today.
The Soltronix brand brings PowerFilm expertise, innovation, and commitment to US-based semi-flexible crystalline silicon solutions. Soltronix brings you complete solutions to fit your application, including panels, encapsulation, semi-flexible substrates, proprietary PowerBoost charge controllers, and the collaboration and customer service you expect from a US-based company.
Refrigerated or frozen goods are kept at the proper temperature using transportation refrigeration units (TRUs) which allow for bulk transport but have a measurable effect on the amount of diesel a vehicle consumes.
You might think you'd need a sizable solar panel to affect diesel consumption, but a small, cost-effective solar panel has a significant impact.
Today’s post dives into three key benefits solar panels provide to trailer refrigeration units (often referred to as reefers).
Solar panel benefits include:
- Enabling trailer telematics
- Improving system reliability
- Reducing jump-start service calls
Do you own a fleet of construction vehicles, delivery trucks, battery-powered trailers, a boat that sits outside in the off-season, or a vintage car you don’t often drive that sits for extended periods but needs to be ready to go when you turn the key?
Today’s post outlines current solutions to ensure your batteries don’t die when sitting for long periods, their drawbacks, and how a relatively small solar panel can significantly affect battery lifetime and overall maintenance.

We will attend the show and would love to meet if you'll be there.
