 Starter Set

Whether you're experimenting with solar or looking to eventually grow your system, the Starter Set is the first piece of hardware you'll need to start producing your own energy. We're confident that once you experience how easy it is to generate your own energy, you'll want to expand your system. 

100 Watt (Basic pledge) - Energy to offset small devices and "phantom energy." This is static energy your home uses to keep your TV, DVR, Internet Modem, Router, Game Console, and appliances on standby.

200 Watt (Recommended to start) - Energy to offset most popular electronic devices, smartphone, laptop and your flat screen TV.

To upgrade your basic pledge from 100W to 200W, click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page then add the above amounts to your pledge.

Milestones

With the successful proof of concept for DIY solar of Legion Solar 1, we're now finding Legion Solar 2 with three new innovations.

  • SolarBuilder™ - Once you have your Starter Set, use this interactive tool to plan and grow your system with expansion sets and racking hardware.
  • RafterFinder™ - Unlocks the secret to doing a professional roof installation by yourself.
  • SolarRegulator™ - Enables solar for single direction meters, prevent energy going back to the grid to overcome regulation in some regions and to use the value of energy more optimally.

Risks and challenges

PLX Devices has been designing and successfully bringing products to market for 14 years with a focus in automotive and consumer electronics. Legion Solar 2 is our 10th Kickstarter project. We're absolutely confident we can fulfill this project.

Solar Builder - Our biggest challenge is simplify the solar system building process and code that up into an easy to use website. Then integrate that into our back end inventory system for fulfillment to your door. Based in the Silicon Valley, the heart of the internet revolution, we have many resources we can tap to complete the project.

RafterFinder and SolarRegulator - Designing and manufacturing electronics is our core competency. We will need to manufacture the PCBs, assemble the components and encase them into an industrial design. Our biggest challenge is to refine the algorithms to communicate with the inverters to regulate energy production so that energy production is as efficient as possible. We have tremendous experience in computer algorithms where we can draw from our automotive background to complete this task.

The prototypes are finished and we're ready to go into production. We need your help and we hope you'll join us 'Bring the Future.'
