Gallery: The Solar Stik Portable Power Generator


The Solar Stik™ is a small-scale energy generator that is capable of providing clean, green energy wherever it is needed most. The versatile system takes advantage of both solar and wind turbine technology and is quick to set up, making it perfect for applications ranging from boating and recreation to providing emergency relief and humanitarian aid.

Energy is hard to come by in many areas of the world, and clean reliable energy is even rarer. This holds doubly true for the sites of natural disasters, where it is extremely important to have a reliable source of power for rebuilding efforts.

Weighing in at just under 80 pounds, the Solar Stik offers a versatile alternative energy solution that is easily deployable. It can be set up quickly by just one person, and its dual 50-watt solar panels are capable of producing about 80 Amp-hours per day. Starting at $5,000, the Solar Stik is on the pricey side, but its initial cost it is something that can definitely be recouped as an investment over time.

    Hi everyone,

    I work for Solar Stik and I wanted to update folks on the newest system we have available. We realized the cost was a factor so we took a look at how to remain true to the design, stay completely portable and still have the same wattage output. We came up with the Solar Stik LITE. On our home page you will find a link and all the details. Price is $3500 not including an inverter or shipping. I hope this may be a bit more affordable.

    If you have questions, just email

    This may be very pricy for most people living in remote areas around the world; however, it is very ideal for outlying islands here in the Federated States of Micronesia. In fact, I would not mind purchasing one for my personal use in times of natural catastrophes, which I hope does not take place any time soon. This technology should be beneficial for people living in the outer islands within my FSM States because the modern convenience of enjoying the applications of having a sort of power source to run the basic appliances are not readily take for granted in most developing countries.

    You can look up kits, I am sure any mayor dealer in the world have this. They range in price from 400 USD – 6000 USD. Condumex in Mexico is a good source.

    This is great.

    Sadly, it pretty expensive, so sticking one in every decent-sized Third World village is out of the question. Pity. Power for things like health clinics and education is what’s needed to help people raise themselves up out of poverty. IBut considering the billions of dollars given in aid every year, I wonder if that money couldn’t be better spent on something like this? That old ‘give a man a fish’ scenario.

    Or maybe a better use is for every western household to have one of these, or some similar technology. Reduce our consumption, so reducing our detrimental impact on the world, which ultimately has a knock-on effect on the Third World.

    Either way, a unit that embraces two forms of alternative energy is a terrific step in the right direction.
