Apollo Solar: Why you should re-think charging your batteries with a diesel generator
The rocket scientists of solar apply their technology to reducing DG runtime to close to zero
The Pfeifer family has been in the energy delivery business for three generations. John’s grandfather delivered coal, his father delivered fuel oil, now John Pfeifer delivers sunshine! John is President and CEO of Apollo Solar, a designer and manufacturer of hybrid power equipment, who in 2002 was asked by NASA to get more power out of the solar panels and batteries on a high altitude balloon mission. They were able to harvest 30% more power from the same system. Apollo commercialized that solution and began deployment of the technology to the global market in 2005. The Apollo telecom power systems are now in their 3rd generation and installed on every continent with over 100 cell sites in Africa by way of an installation partnership with Camusat.
