“Power your life. Independently.”

YouSolar created a solar power-based supply system combined with a battery, with the aim of delivering resilient and clean power for everyone, home or business, with ample power to run high-demand appliances. YouSolar uses a patented modular power architecture that allows seamless integration of solar, utility, and even generator power. The Company has proprietary IP and approved patents, including a patented plug-and-play cabinet for easy shipment and one-person installation. The founder and lead inventor has years of successful experience in the solar space, including an exit from his previous company.
YouSolar completed a successful, oversubscribed Reg CF campaign on StartEngine in August 2020, raising the full amount of $1.07M. This is a small follow-on round to give the Company the full runway to achieve its milestones ahead of its next equity financing.

Sectors: Renewable Energy, Clean-tech
