Why PowerFilm? Blog Post Title Graphic




A question we ask ourselves daily.


“Why did that guy cut me off!?”


“Why didn’t I remember to write that report?”


“Why can’t I afford that sports car?”


The list goes on and on ...


“Why” is very important. It helps us get to the reason for something.


We often do the same things we’ve always done without giving thought to the “Why” of it all.


At PowerFilm, we thrive on “Why.”


President Frank Jeffrey co-founded PowerFilm due to this very thought. “Why not us? Why can’t we change solar?”


Today we stick to the same principles of asking why.


“Why isn’t there a solution for this?”


“Why can’t we push the limits and make this better?”


Recently we sat down and thought through the reasons why you should choose PowerFilm over other solar companies.



We create incredibly durable solar panels but didn’t stop there. We make panels that withstand being shot (click here to see the Extreme Durability Test). Many of you will never put your panels through these incredible tests, but we wanted to make sure that our technology performed no matter what the circumstances. You can have confidence that your rollable, foldable, or LightSaver can endure the day-to-day wear and tear and continue to perform at the highest level.


All Under One Roof:

Ever play the telephone game? It’s incredible how much detail and information gets lost, even just being passed from a few individuals. We believe the same applies to the construction of a quality product. Quality starts with being able to design, manufacture, and construct our products under one roof. Our engineers push the limits of what is thought to be possible, leading to innovative products like the LightSaver Max. Being in control of every part of the design process, as well as production and assembly of the product, allows us incredible control over the products that we deliver. We care too much about our products to send them overseas to be constructed and monitor processes at every stage to ensure performance.


Product Line:

No matter what kind of portable power you need, we can help. Want to charge your cell phone during a week-long hike? Great, grab a LightSaver. Need significant portable power on your next camping trip but don’t want to lug something heavy around? Perfect, get a 60 Watt foldable and experience just how light a serious sized solar panel can be (check out our foldable line). Need to make sure your electronics are charged on your next fishing trip? Excellent, pick up one of our rollable solar panels, and stay charged on the open water (learn more about our rollable line). We are passionate about powering your electronics and have created a product line that ensures you get quality power wherever you might be.


Customization/Complete Solutions:

Ever have an idea that you can envision in your head but can’t quite see the end result? 


That’s where we come in.


Amorphous silicon is inherently more customizable than other solar, and we help make businesses’ unique power ideas a reality. Our team is dedicated to overcoming the many hurdles you face. We don’t only bring a piece of the puzzle to the table but can create complete solutions (PV, battery, charge controller, etc.). Whatever it is you need, we would love to sit down with you and create a solution.



We didn’t open our doors yesterday. We’ve been pushing the limits of what’s possible with amorphous silicon technology for nearly 30 years. We have the experience that you need and expertise that you can trust. Whether it's businesses, military markets, or consumers, we have extensive solar knowledge and would love to help you.


Customer Service:

In a day and age where customers are warier than ever before, we stand behind the products that we sell. While many companies warranties are questionable at best, ours is extensive and robust. Our staff is understanding, helpful, and ready to serve you. If you ever have a question, concern, or inquiry, you can call, email, or reach out on social media, and we will get back to you guaranteed. No one likes being ignored. We feel people should be treated with respect. We look forward to hearing from you and taking care of you before, during, and after the sale.
