Solar power has plenty of applications for remote regions where the electricity grid is distant and the sun shines bright. The latest, comes from two-year-old startup Solis Energy, which is using solar generators to power Wi-Fi routers located, well, just about anywhere.
The Orlando, Fla.-based company makes solar generators and solar power supplies that power devices where electricity from the grid is unavailable. This makes it possible, for example, to power WiFi hotspots in remote locations or in regions hit by natural disasters. Solis is starting to pitch these portable solar generators to municipal Wi-Fi projects.
