In light of severe weather or simply pushing the boundaries of infrastructure, you could find yourself “off-the-grid” either by choice or by surprise. Are you prepared to go off-grid? While it may seem daunting, there is one critical necessity that could sustain your security and success, independent of an electrical grid. A solar generator is the must have tool in your arsenal for tackling off-the-grid work.
Why is a solar generator so valuable? No matter where you are on Earth, sunlight will always be an accessible commodity. Unlike a conventional generator, a solar generator can produce energy throughout the day, storing excess energy in batteries throughout the night or during cloudy weather. Even during cloudy weather, solar panels still work – while they work less efficiency, their reserve power can more than supplement your energy needs.
No other type of portable, off-grid generator can give you the peace of mind that a solar generator can. Of the four main types of generators – electromotive diesel, diesel, gasoline, and natural gas – none have the security of solar panels. Eventually, you will run out of gas. Working off the grid, there is no easy way to replenish your supplies – why not use a generator whose supply replenishes automatically? A solar generator is the only way to truly work off the grid; a gasoline or natural gas generator ties you to the grid by forcing you to resupply a finite resource. The sun’s energy is an infinite resource.
Chances are when you’re working off the grid, you want to conserve resources. Typical generators not only lack this type of efficiency by expending a lot of energy through heat, they also contribute to carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide emissions. A solar generator is a clean, efficient alternative that converts more energy directly to electricity.

Power Your Life Wherever It Takes You
The rapid development of solar panels poises them as a staple renewable energy alternative. As we all know, a side effect of burning fossil fuels is the emission of greenhouse gases. Compounds such as carbon and sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxide, and fine particular matter (sometimes referred to as PM2.5) are released into the atmosphere.
Solar is a clean alternative that is becoming more affordable everyday as scientists and engineers develop smaller and more effective PV cells. With its falling cost, the widespread adoption of solar is highly likely.
Solar provides energy independence and bolsters the environment. Investment in solar is investment in the future of communities and businesses.
Systems such as the Solar4 line provide power in lifesaving situations. The threat
of hurricanes can compromise an entire electrical grid. Without backups, power may not be restored for weeks putting both lives and property in jeopardy.
The expansive experience of CME with work in power supply units makes us a reliable choice in providing energy solutions for present and future customer needs. Compact and durable, Solar4POWER products fulfill power needs on the go and can function independently of a grid. Additionally, CME works to partner with education to highlight the importance of solar energy for the future of science and engineering. Through the Solar4STEM line, CME seeks to widen the accessibility of solar energy.
CME has the expertise to help you meet your particular solar needs. Whether it’s to engage audiences in the benefits of alternative energy, or for stability in crises, our experience over decades attests
quality. Our website includes a contact form for further information on how we can help you reach for personalized success with solar.

Mexico Beach after Hurricane Michael's Impact (FEMA / K.C. Wilsey)
Hurricane season has begun, with many in Florida still recovering from Hurricane Michael which struck the panhandle in 2018.
When a hurricane strikes, life and property are put into extreme jeopardy. You shouldn’t have to worry about having inadequate resources for post-storm recovery.
NOAA’s prediction for the 2019 hurricane season listed 9-15 named storms, of which 2-4 are major. Do not leave your safety up to chance – major hurricanes often strike unpredictably.
Solar power after a hurricane saves lives – yours and others. Vest your trust in a company whose dedication to putting safety first for its customers is coupled with its understanding as being part of a community subjected to hurricane season.
Let us help you help others in the wake of a tragedy. In addition to providing emergency equipment, CME has professionals committed to the support of your preparation for hurricane season.
Hurricane season is here! So, what does that mean for Floridians? From June 1st to November 30th, Floridians check the weather a little closer and usually have a few extra water bottles handy just in case. Here are some helpful tips to keep you aware, prepared, and unafraid this hurricane season.
Preparation Before the Storm
Your home is where all your memories, treasures, and loved ones live so make sure to keep it safe!
Keep an Inventory of your Personal Property
That same phone you are using to track the weather can also be used to take a video of your home and personal items to ensure your insurance company has you covered if something is to happen.
Have an Evacuation Plan
What You Should Have On-Hand
When a hurricane warning is issued, the stores can get a little wild and empty quickly. You may want to consider as much as possible, beat the rush by having these items on-hand:
Try and Relax
You have done everything you could possibly do to secure your home, family, and pets so now it is time to pat yourself on the back for your preparedness, hope for the best, and relax.
