When Robin Hood meets Robinson Crusoe
Today, residential solar energy is exclusively accesible to homeowners with a roof (mainly the rich). These solar panel installations are oftentimes paid for by subsidies, that in turn are paid using everyone else's taxes. A 21st century Robin Hood would definitely fit his balcony with a Plug & Play Solar Kit and go get a subsidy from the sheriff.
The idea of using existing PV components to build small kits for locations where no roof is available, was born among environmentally conscious DIY and electronic enthusiasts in Northern Europe, mainly Germany. This is reminiscent of how Robinson Crusoe built a home and livelihood with tools and materials at hand in the fictitious island of Trinidad. Today's Robinson Crusoe would head over to the nearest DIY store, get his components and build himself a Plug & Play Solar Kit to generate his own energy, and he’d not be asking for permits.
Robinsun was founded by Boris Hageney, a veteran entrepreneur in eCommerce in Europe and the US. Boris' main motivation to found Robinsun was the desire to build a scalable consumer tech company that participates in the fight against climate change. Every Plug & Play Solar Kit we sell is a small step in our common goal: to decarbonize the energy we use, and save our planet.
A company is only as good as its people. In our HQ close to Madrid, Spain, an international and purpose-driven team is working hard to grow Robinsun, improve the products and services we deliver to our customers, and get customers on board with our mission.
