There is a need for transportable alternative energy systems capable of providing 5 - 50 kW of renewable electric power. The proposed Portable Array Module (PAM) meets this need, promising a new age of energy production and storage in situations where highly reliable energy sources must be established and maintained within a very short timeframe. Individual PAM modules are fully functional power generation and storage systems. Within PAM, power is generated by thin film photovoltaic solar cells, then stored and conditioned for use. Every PAM power system stows within a single ruggedized canister for easy transport to the desired location. Once on site PAM power modules unroll to a length of 20 ft in a matter of seconds. Batteries and the necessary electronics to condition the power as it comes off the array are located inside the ruggedized transport canister. The ability of each module to store and condition the power being produced not only ensures a constant source of reliable energy; it simplifies deployment logistics. Field deployment of any size system is as simple as ordering the necessary number of PAM self-contained power modules. Unroll the modules and renewable energy will be generated, stored, and conditioned for use.
