Spanish manufacturer of solar powered device with electronics’ charging ports for outdoor umbrellas is looking for distributors in several European countries as well as in the United States of America.

This Spanish company is the producer and manufacturer of a device consisting in solar energy panels used to generate electricity to power the charging ports for general consumer electronics. This device is to be installed on top of outdoor sun umbrellas/parasols. They are looking for distributors in several European countries as well as in the United States of America to promote its use in restaurants and bars with outdoor seating.
This company’s primary goal is to work toward individual self-sufficiency in the field of energy. The company, working closely with the Valencia Polytechnic University, received State funding to continue research and production of their innovative goods. The sun parasols/umbrellas are both innovative and eco-friendly, in that they allow people greater mobility by allowing them to have power in places they may not have been able to reach previously. Additionally, the umbrellas also have the potential to store the generated solar energy in a battery – for later use. The stored energy can then be used to power the charging points in the evenings, or when the sun is not out. They are also looking to being able to power entire establishments lights in the evening with solar power generated through the day, by the sun umbrellas. The solar panels attached to the umbrellas are light and flexible and highly durable. Every product also comes with a fifteen year warranty. In addition to that, all products are extremely safe and highly efficient, as the solar panels are at the high end of the efficiency spectrum in their class. Their products are eco-friendly, solar powered mobile chargers, with the potential to charge consumer electronics such as tablets, smartphones and cameras. The procurement of these sun umbrellas will allow hospitality establishments and individuals to lower electricity costs and their carbon footprints in the long run. As such, the company is hoping to reach a large market base through distributors focused in HORECA (Hotel, Restaurant and Catering) channels, as well as (outdoor) furniture distributors for HORECA.
