Iconic Las Vegas Sign Powered By Solar | AIMS Power Inverter Blog

We love seeing renewable energy initiatives in Nevada, where AIMS Power was born.

A venture aptly named the Clean Energy Project, CEP, worked with Green Chips and the Clark County Commission to install solar panels for powering the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign with Nevada’s own solar energy.

The sign was powered by the sun January 8.

Clean Energy Project Nevada Las Vegas

The Clean Energy Project (CEP) powers the iconic Las Vegas sign with solar energy.

The solar tree installation allows The Strip’s most iconic landmark’s legendary neon and incandescent lights to run solely on harnessed solar energy.

Converting this iconic sign’s power source to solar will provide an example to our community that clean renewable energy can help power businesses, homes or even signs throughout Nevada.

What a great way to spread awareness about the benefits of sustainability and renewable energy!

AIMS Power Unveils Green-Energy Inverter Generator at EMEX

AIMS Power inverters are the backbone of the world’s most versatile portable green-energy generator, unveiled at EMEX in Reno, Nevada, Oct. 28-30.

Reno, Nevada (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

The Emergency Management and Homeland Security Expo (EMEX), an annual tradeshow put on by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), features AIMS Power as an exhibitor during the event at Silver Legacy in Reno, Nevada.

AIMS Power, an off-grid and renewable energy company based in Reno, plans to showcase its newest product, which they claim is the “world’s most versatile” portable green-energy generator.

Engineers at AIMS Power claim this is the "world's most versatile" green-energy generator.

The product is manufactured in Reno and boasts more than 25 different models, including some with solar capabilities, to satisfy a wide-range of applications.

“We imagine this product being great for emergency backup power applications, especially during disaster relief efforts; for anyone participating in an outdoor event, for a tech-savvy prepper and even for humanitarian efforts in countries with little electrical infrastructure,” AIMS Power vice president Sean Nichols said. “The biggest selling points are that it’s easily deployable and highly powerful, so in the event of a crisis where the military, FEMA or Homeland Security needs to act quickly and effectively, this is a serious game-changer.”

Inverters by AIMS power off-grid cabins

10000 watt power inverter model by AIMS Power is perfect for off-grid cabin applications.

AIMS Power is dedicated to providing the best products possible to its customers, which is why this new version of the 10000 watt 12 volt inverter was developed. It’s less than half the size and weight of any other model you can find on the market — guaranteed (more specs below). So packing it up and taking it out to an off-grid cabin or using it for any other mobile application is easier than ever.

AIMS Power's new 10000 watt 12 volt inverter is less than half the size of the competition's, making for more flexibility in mobile and off-grid applications.

AIMS Power’s new 10000 watt 12 volt inverter transforms direct current (DC) electricity generated by batteries into alternating current (AC) electricity used to power lights, TVs, vacuums, coffee pots, air conditioners and many other appliances needed to feel cozy in an off-grid cabin.

The inverter’s 10000 watt continuous output combined with its 20000 watt surge capacity means that this AIMS Power product can handle the high wattage startup for air conditioners and air compressors. These products use what’s called locked rotor startup or locked rotor amperage (LRA) which means when starting they require about three to five times their regular wattage.

Even if not using anything that requires LRA, the high wattage capacity on this inverter means that more appliances can be used at once. So for instance, one person could be washing dishes with hot water and another vacuuming in the other room without any problems. Just make sure the combined wattage of the appliances being used doesn’t exceed 10000 watts and doesn’t surge higher than 20000 watts for more than 40 milliseconds.
