Introducing SOL

In 2013 we introduced SOL, the world’s first laptop that runs entirely by the power of the sun. SOL is a unique laptop created to service a global market where 1 in 4 people have little to no access to a stable electrical infrastructure.
Entirely self-sustained, rugged and affordable, the mobile device is finding high demand in Africa, Middle East and South America.

With SOL you only need the sun and everyone has access to its power.


Following a lengthy research and development phase, plus a rigorous testing period we have created a fully functioning laptop that is 100% powered by sunlight. It was created from the ground up to work entirely with the sun. Sol is not a power hungry machine, yet it is as powerful as most laptops in use today. It comes fully loaded with a powerful OS, a productivity suite and creative tools, it is a thing of beauty.

What makes SOL so remarkable?

While SOL was created to help enhance education in developing countries, it has many practical applications for everyone. With its free power source, software tools and powerful operating system, this ruggedly built and highly affordable mobile device allows you to take productivity and creativity wherever life takes you.

We anticipated the harsh conditions and far-flung places where SOL might be used, we designed the solar-powered laptop to stand up to the elements, and then some.

SOL was built to endure beyond the norm, which is why we used durable, reinforced materials and a complex industrial design and architecture to keep the laptop performing whether you’re on land or sea. Every SOL comes preloaded with a suite of popular Internet, productivity and creative tools, all within an intuitive graphic environment that’s as easy on the eyes as it is on your wallet.

By harnessing the power of the sun into along lasting battery, SOL can make the claim
as a sustainable green computing machine built  for people with little or no access to electricity.
When sundown happens, we designed the computer's core architecture to work with a battery that allows you to work or play well into the evening on a single charge.



 What makes SOL unique?

There is no other product like this in the market and therefore no current competition. This solar powered laptop is a product that provides a personal solar power source AND a laptop in a single unit. SOL is like any other laptop with one key difference. It combines the need of mobility, connectivity, technology AND personal power generation to users worldwide. The solar panels are detachable and usable with other SOL products





Earth Friendly?

SOL does not use fossil fuels. Normal use of 4 - 5 laptops equals an annual carbon
footprint reduction similar to a North American automobile.
What an opportunity to offset potential penalties in the carbon  market

Why SOL?

Particularly in the Corporate Social Responsibility sector SOL is a multiplier.
Think in terms of visibility of the product, value proposal in brand enhancement,
carbon reduction with provable financial benefits and many more.
SOL has disrupter potential in the power market of the developing world - whether used in education, health care, crises management, policing, elections, military or other
Civic government functions by reducing the need for high annual operating and maintenance costs and the capital budgets needed for construction
of power generating capacity.

Never need to plug it in.

Sol works morning, noon and night. Just "plug"  your Sol into the sun during the day.
At night thanks to SOl' s powerful long-lasting battery you're good to keep going

Free Power, Free Software, Free Support

Every SOL comes preloaded with a suite of productivity and creative tools.

  How cool is that?

Make Business a Pleasure.

SOL comes with double entry accounting, tax preparation and invoicing software.

Connect with Help Anytime.

Professional technical service and support, plus a universe of  online resources.
Relax , your in good hands

Life is Full of Color.

SOL is available in a variety of stylish colors. In addition to the selection available customers can choose their corporate color and brand the laptop through logo placement. Imagine a device that is changing the world with your brand
 visible and recognized
