Originally developed for the U.S. Military, PowerShade™ Solar Field Shelters provide more than just durable shelter from the elements. Thin, flexible solar panels integrated into their heavy-duty fabric structures also produce abundant power for electronic communication, navigation and computer systems. Whether used in disaster relief, at a remote landfall, or even your local regatta, they silently produce clean solar power, eliminating the need for noisy fuel-fired generators that require a constant supply of costly fuel.
