There’s more than one way to go solar! The staff from Premium Power Systems, the Atascadero solar company decided to take a fun trip around the world to discover some of the latest inventions. They found quite a few, close to 100 in fact. Here are the favorites for your enjoyment.
Hiking, cycling, and hanging out at the beach no longer mean leaving your electronics behind or missing out on the conveniences of home.
Check out the solar-powered bicycle by Yanko Design is powered by onboard solar panels in the wheels. The bike is actually a hybrid, powered by the sun or charged with electricity. Mount up! Run errands or take a casual weekend bike ride on a country road. Currently, non-solar charging for electric bikes means removing the battery pack from the bike and placing it in the charger that comes with the bike. Along with providing top full-service solar installation services, the Atascadero solar company also installs electric vehicle charging stations. When public e-bike charging stations begin emerging, Premium Power Systems may very well be at the forefront of that technology, too!
Adventures in the sun
Take your cell phone, camera, and other important electronics with you to the beach, hiking, or camping worry-free. Just bring along a solar tote bag and solar-powered camera strap and don’t worry about any device losing power.
Be a modern-day frontier person with a solar watch. Impress your friends on your next hike. No one has to know you peeked at your solar watch before squinting at the sun to find out the time of day! Solar watches have been around since American engineer Roger Riehl started tinkering with the technology. The first solar watch called the Synchronar 2100 was released in 1972.
Setting up camp
Impress the other campers when you pitch your solar-powered tent then set up your solar-powered camp kitchen complete with a solar oven. There are a few brands of solar kitchens and ovens on the market, ranging in price from around $100 to over $1000.

Dressing up the backyard
Solar lights and yard ornaments are not necessarily a new inventions, but they never fail to bring a sense of the mystic to the backyard.
