Today we’d like to introduce you to Robert Kunesh.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I worked at Xerox corporation for ten years, in micro-circuit engineering, upon leaving the Air Force where I learned about the packaging of electronic components. Thereafter, I started Three engineering companies supporting Defense and Aerospace engineering projects.
This experience opened many business opportunities with Dupont, Fairchild, Hughes, Raytheon, NASA, Boeing and Emcore and is where I became interested in high power, Space quality, solar cells which I adapted into handheld GPS and Sat Phone solar energy modules.
In 2014, I was awarded the “Upcoming Entrepreneur” for the Spirit of the Entrepreneur Awards in San Bernardino. My company, SacTec Solar, continues to seek technologies in making our environment greener and helping people in need.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Running any business is difficult and sometimes impossible. You will likely loose most everything you own before things get better. Money will always be a problem and you will be preyed on by the dis-honest and their attorneys. You must believe in your vision and find the right people to work with. It is important to know when to “hold them” and when to “fold them”. If you have a lame house, you may be able to ride a long way and pay for a lot of hay but never win. Find a new race and horse.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with SacTec Solar – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Working with Military groups concerned about the high costs of field fuel and its availability during emergencies, SacTec Solar developed the “PowerHop” concept of mobile solar power systems which minimize diesel generator use. These are rapidly deploying pre-wired solar arrays enclosed in trailers or in half-sized 20ft shipping containers.
PowerHop products are designed for “off-grid” Sun tracking Solar Trailers and for Iso-Containerized 25KW “mini-solar farm” building block Modules. They are unique to industry and provide FEMA, Defense and Hospital back-up power needs from 25KW to MegaWatts.
These power systems may have helped many in Texas, Florida and Porto Rico, had they been there.
We are proud we can offer the World a solar solution in emergencies, Defense needs, industry use, agriculture applications and humanitarian relief.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Our future plans are to develop products that make small communities and factories into independent micro-grids power systems, minimizing their need for 24/7 utility dependence. A green tomorrow requires adapting “today’s” technologies into working hardware/software, empowering each individual to live a better life.
We intend to offer micro, Sun tracking, Venetian blinds to re-reflect Sunlight into the ceilings of offices and stop shading our valuable Sunlight. SacTec Solar intends to make every home, office and school operate mainly at 50VDC instead of our now 110/220Vac. Every room in America is must become its own independent hybrid energy power system.
- A basic 25KW PowerHop solar power system module leases at $60,000 per year, returning $25,000 in Tier 1 daytime energy savings.
- PowerHop Systems sell between $200-300K depending on electrical configurations and battery storage capabilities
