We all know just how amazing ultracapacitors are: they’re incredibly efficient, they can be recycled over 500,000 times without degradation, they can store amazing amounts of energy in a relatively small space, they’re safe, and they can charge devices in seconds as opposed to hours.
When you look at these advantages and then pair them up with solar energy, you can see where the future lies. Ultracapacitors are the perfect storage device for solar energy in the home.
Unlike traditional batteries, ultracapacitors can remain on charge indefinitely with no adverse effects. This means that they can stay in constant use, storing energy for the home, with no risk of losing cell capacity.
Because they can retain a charge for such an extended period of time, this enables the home to use energy that was collected in the sunny, summer months for use in the cloudy winter months. Ultracapacitors extend the availability of solar energy, which means that homeowners can rely on their solar panels for power more than ever.
I have been contacted by several solar companies and we are actively helping them incorporate ultracaps into their future home designs and plans. We are living in an exciting time...

Nice to meet you.
I agree, too.
In my web, there is a newsmagazine show video of 2003.
I produced it.
Dear Greg Allen,
Thanks for the article on solar matched with superaps.
This is John Kim at Vina Technology, and I believe my coworker has been talking with you on ultracaps.
Here is just for greetings. Thank you again.
I am very interested in the applications of super caps with a PV system I would like to install in my own home, how can I get detailed technical help?
No.4 Off-grid power
Hi there Greg. We run small company who specialise in solar water pumping and other off-grid power systems using wind turbines and PV. Many people contact us with year round power requirements, or in the case of PV night only pumping (to cut down on evaporation losses). Could you point me in the direction of any work being done for off-grid PV/wind turbine/ultracapacitor designs.
Many thanks Francis
