Arlington, WA – May 9, 2011- OutBack Power Technologies, Inc. and their integration partner, Mobile Solar, have responded to a request to support power requirements needed since the recent tsunami in the hard hit Sendai area of Japan.  Using OutBack’s GFX3024J model inverters with 120VAC 50Hz output, Mobile Solar built and shipped a total of six MS-150 model solar generators in the first phase of a large deployment.  Upon arrival, the units were immediately outfitted with water purification systems and construction tools to allow workers to rebuild residential neighborhoods.

 Travis Semmes, President of Mobile Solar, said “we have chosen OutBack Power as our technology partner on the inverter/charger and charge controller side.  OutBack has proven a perfect match for our product line and our customers’ needs – supplying a consistently reliable and durable product that gets the job done.  With this in mind, we knew we could provide an effective, high quality mobile solar generator solution for the victims of the recent tsunami.”

“We are glad to have been given the opportunity to work with Mobile Solar to help provide these units for this important application” said Glenn Baker, OutBack’s Vice President of Sales.  “Our technology has been deployed worldwide to provide an efficient way to get power to remote locations and this quick response is due in no small part to our close partnership with Mobile Solar”, added Baker.
