Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut-based company that leverages solar power to help small business owners and homeowners fulfill their energy needs, is honoring a Swedish-designed water purifier that can instantly change polluted water into clean, safe drinking water using the sun’s free energy. The company will honor the solar water purifier, The Solvatten, this week with the Solar Flare award.
The Solvatten contains two 5–liter compartments with a clear face. When the compartments are exposed to sunlight, the water gets heated up to 130°F. An indicator light in the water purifier changes its color from red to green to indicate that the water is now safe to drink, and the purifier performs its work in every 3 to 4 hours.
Jeffrey Mayer, CEO of Soluxe Solar, said that The Solvatten water purifier is a concrete example that shows how solar power improves and saves lives. He also stated that this is the kind of innovation the company is looking to promote and recognize through its Solar Flare award.
Soluxe Solar awards the Solar Flare every week to individuals, companies and projects to honor their efforts in promoting solar technology. The company helps homeowners and small business owners to leverage the sun's energy using solar power systems. It is headquartered in Darien, CT, and has years of experience in the solar technology and energy markets. Soluxe Solar’s aim is to assist customers save both money and the planet simultaneously.
