RevoluSun Will Introduce High-Performance Inverter at BIA Remodel it Right, Remodel it Green Expo

RevoluSun Will Introduce High-Performance Inverter at  BIA Remodel it Right, Remodel it Green Expo

 

After Tropical Storms Iselle and Julio visited the Hawaiian Islands, RevoluSun is proud to welcome the newest member of its ‘ohana: The Sunny Boy TL-US series inverter. RevoluSun will introduce the inverter to show attendees at this weekend's BIA Remodel it Right, Remodel it Green Expo, held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Neil S. Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall.   

The Sunny Boy can generate energy when the sun is out, even if the power grid is down.  As many have experienced in Hawaii, a heavy rain or windstorm can shut down the power grid for hours during the day. The inverter has a 120-volt outlet that allows you to access power directly from that outlet — so you can plug in household appliances, cell phones, computers, and those handy iPads that keep the kids entertained on a stormy day. This inverter offers up to 1,500 Watts of Daytime Power and is HECO approved.
