Sun Bandit Coming to Solar Decathlon and Greenbuild International

With successes in Sacramento and Las Vegas in its wake, PV-powered solar water heating phenom Sun Bandit continues its four-city, coast-to-coast US road trip. The Sun Bandit tour showcases a line-up of energy innovations that have an international bevy of property owners, developers, solar contractors and PHIUS professionals and an international body of sustainability students embracing its value-packed, off-grid capabilities for industry sectors from high-end hospitality to low-income housing to net zero living.


The tour began in August, when — on the heels of qualifying for its share of a pool of nearly $110 million in California Solar Initiative (CSI) rebates — Sun Bandit joined California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) and 150 *hard-charging* solar and storage professionals to advocate for key pro-solar legislation at the California State Capitol in Sacramento. The California legislature voted to extend the $110 million through 2020 and California Governor Jerry Brown signed the legislation into law on September 15.

California isn’t the only state that has qualified Sun Bandit for rich state rebates. From the Aloha State to Alaska; from New York to Florida, property owners are finding they can save up to 75% on equipment and labor costs for qualifying Sun Bandit solutions – particularly when combined with a 30% federal Investment Tax Credit.* 


With incentives or without, contractors, installers and property owners are realizing the rewards of Sun Bandit’s unique breed of solar water heating and cooling, storage and off-grid power production.


From Costa Rica to Kenya, energy entrepreneurs are deploying Sun Bandit to drive energy savings, more consistent off-grid power capabilities — and new business.


“With help from our growing network of smart, forward-thinking contractors, engineers, energy experts, policymakers — and now teams of enterprising students at the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon — Sun Bandit is redefining energy independence for the home as we know it,” said Next Generation Energy CEO Dave Kreutzman. “It’s important for us to visit key industry events to afford contractors across the United States an opportunity to see Sun Bandit first-hand, learn what’s new and speak to our teams about how folks are using Sun Bandit’s patented off-grid storage and production capabilities in various climates and industry applications throughout the world.”

Following are two sustainable living and learning events at which Sun Bandit will be featured this calendar year. So mark your calendar and plan to join us to learn more about our off-grid power and energy storage solutions.
