Onyx Service and Solutions is working its way to making solar power even more available to the public with its Plug-N-Play high efficiency solar panel. Company president Malcolm Burleson advised that Onyx had been focusing its development resources during the past year to bring the 280W panel to fruition.
According to the company, its new product has the proper rated micro-inverter already designed into the panel so that wiring and separate installation can be avoided. The overall goal of the Plug-N-Play product will be for a consumer to easily purchase and install a panel for their own personal use without the need for a highly complicated installation process.
Onyx acknowledged that the panel and inverter for its product design were sourced in Asia, but company management advised that it is planning to complete the battery sourcing, development and manufacturing of the product solely in the US.
“Our Plug-N-Play product development potentially represents a new era for solar power. Being able to lay a panel in the sun and immediately plug in a computer, fan or even a medical device is a game changer. The battery is being designed with the goal of providing at least 5-hours of peak power and the panels are being engineered to fit together in series for virtually unlimited power configurations,” stated Burleson. “As an American company, we feel it is our duty to manufacture this technology in the US and use it to create as many American jobs that economic prudence allows. We want our revolutionary product to carry the Made in USA label.”
