Utah-based Goal Zero, which is claimed to be the world’s largest manufacturer of portable solar products, has announced the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator at CES 2013. The portable solar energy harvesting and storage system offers users the ability to generate renewable energy for use outdoors such as during camps or during emergency situations. The company has also announced that their yeto 1250 has been named 2013 CES Innovations Award Honoree.
Both the solar generators offer users a portable power solution without any emissions and noise, commonly associated with conventionally-fueled generators. The new Yeti 150 comes with a 150wH battery that can be recharged by the 15W Boulder 15 solar panel in about 15 hours of sunshine. Once charged the system can run anything from camping lights to laptop computers. The device is expected to be on the shelves by spring this year and will cost you about $400.
