Solaris Power Cells has concluded initial trials of its self-contained LED Agriculture Grow Cells. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor storage, the system will initially be sold online and carry a 10-year warranty.

The first Solaris Agriculture Grow Cell grow kits to be offered by Solaris will target home users and small-scale agricultural growers who want an off grid and self-contained solar powered system. The solar cells powers the company's SMART-CELL Passive Electron Storage Array that enables the crop growth under a controlled lighting condition even after the sun has gone down for the day. As an added safety feature, Solaris' power cells are solid state that does not depend on lead acid batteries.

The system has an optional 110/220V power supply that will be available for areas where the weather and sunshine hours are unpredictable. As the market responds and potential dealer or distributor inquiries arrive, the company anticipates that it will establish a distribution network of authorised channel resellers.
