Reasons to Invest

The Outdoor Recreation Industry is ripe for investment. In 2019, outdoor recreation accounted for $459.8B and the industry has continued to soar throughout 2020. Solar and Climate Change investments are going viral; they more than doubled in 2020
GoSun has a proven track record of growth, with $3.9M in revenue in 2020, over 100,000 products sold across 70 countries, and a 109% sales increase over 2019
Experienced team (with multiple successful exits and public IPO’s) has developed a process for launching innovations that power essential needs with renewable energy


Securities purchased in a regulation crowdfunding (“Reg CF”) offering such as this one cannot be resold for one year. This means that even if the company successfully lists on StartEngine Secondary, you will not be able to quote securities purchased in this offering for sale until at least one year after the purchase has occurred.

 

Additionally, while the company has signed a quotation agreement to trade the securities offered on StartEngine Secondary’s new alternative trading system (the “ATS”), a company that intends to be quoted on the marketplace will be subject to certain requirements which the company may or may not be able to satisfy in a timely manner. Even if a company is qualified to quote its securities on the market, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.




Combining the latest in solar, energy storage and electronics, GoSun builds consumer products that meet essential needs and are better than today’s incumbents without compromising quality, performance or affordability. Our lean start-up approach helps GoSun move quickly to meet major consumer needs and markets with today’s latest climate technology. 



The Problem




Traditional grid power cannot be trusted with its long, complicated, and often compromised supply chain (Source). Thriving while off-grid should not be difficult, but when headed outdoors, we are left vulnerable, buying more supplies everyday and throwing single use items in the trash after use.



The Solution




In just a few years, GoSun has become the first consumer solar products manufacturer to break into mainstream markets. GoSun products allow our customers to thrive off-grid, avoid messes, and save money while helping the climate, living healthier, and preparing for a changing world. 

 

Our products include: 

  • GoSun Solar Ovens - our breakthrough solar cooking technology that steams, bakes, roasts, and boils in minutes using only the Sun. 
  • GoSun Chill - a portable 12V fridge designed to keep food cold or frozen, dry, and organized. 
  • GoSun Power Generators - our generators are capable of charging laptops, tablets, cameras, phones, lights, and other devices. 
  • GoSun Flow - a purification and sanitation system that supplies your off-grid water needs. 
  • GoSun Dream - an off-grid, solar, smart home that can be placed almost anywhere with hybrid solar + electric appliances. 




GoSun is also currently building a presence in several developing countries to assist in disaster relief efforts. We are one of the first solar manufacturers awarded by the United Nations Clean Cooking Alliance, UNDP and the American Red Cross.  Learn more about it here: 



The proof of our success is in our numbers: 

  • $3.9 million in 2020 revenue. 
  • 109% growth from 2019 to 2021, with 100k units sold across 70+ countries. 
  • Five patents and six trademarks. 
  • Nine successful product launches that have put the company in the top one percent of all crowdfunding innovators. 
  • Over 200k email and SMS subscribers, over 250k social media followers, and over 7k online community group members. 
  • Multiple awards: CES Innovation Awards 2021 Honoree, CES 2019 Climate Change Innovator Award, Consumer Technology Association’s 2017 Small Business of the Year, Fast Company’s 2017 World Changing Ideas Awards
  • Appearances on Top Chef, Science Channel’s All American Makers, The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation and many more news channels and publications.

The Market




As the world moves away from burning fossil fuels, the Solar Energy Industry is predicted to grow 6,500% through 2050 (Source). In addition to the $460 billion outdoor recreation market, GoSun is meeting needs in the $117.2 billion Emergency Management industry. 



GoSun is a pioneer in creating, engineering, and building consumer solar products that meet customer’s essential needs. When compared with other existing products’ lifetime cost of ownership, GoSun is far more eco-friendly and affordable. 

Why Invest




With a growing awareness of Climate Change and natural disasters, consumers are seeking more efficient, self-reliant products. 


This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.”


GoSun allows the solar energy boom to meet everyday consumers. We have grown strong over the past few years, now with your help we are ready to scale.

The 10% StartEngine Owners' Bonus

GoSun will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Series A Preferred Stock shares at $5.00 / share, you will receive 110 shares, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $500. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are canceled or fail.

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

The Company will not incur any irregular use of proceeds.

Updates

GoSun is signed to Join StartEngine's Secondary Trading Platform

5 days ago

You may be able to Buy and Sell GoSun someday in the future on the Secondary, StartEngine’s New Trading Platform

GoSun is proud to announce we have signed up to join the StartEngine Secondary for trading in the future. 

The lack of liquidity has traditionally been one of the downsides of early stage investing. Usually, investors in a startup expect that they won't see liquidity for their money for five or more years. By joining the Secondary, we may be able to give investors an opportunity to trade their shares in the future.

StartEngine has made a significant step forward for the equity crowdfunding industry and we are glad to join them. Having a secondary market open for our shares is good for GoSun, and good for investors for whom liquidity is important. Everyone following these messages will get equal access to information about when we will open for Secondary trading.

Disclaimer: Securities purchased in a regulation crowdfunding ("Reg CF") offering such as this one cannot be resold for one year.  This means that even if the company successfully lists on the StartEngine Secondary, you will not be able to quote securities purchased in this offering for sale until at least one year after the purchase has occurred. 

Additionally, while the company has signed a quotation agreement to trade the securities offered on StartEngine Secondary's new alternative trading system (the "ATS"), a company that intends to be quoted on the marketplace will be subject to certain requirements which the company may or may not be able to satisfy in a timely manner.  Even if a company is qualified to quote its securities on the market, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained.  You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.

Webinar Next Week, Oct. 12th + Why Ohio?

23 days ago

Why is GoSun in Ohio?  

Sky-high taxes, ridiculous real estate prices, massive salaries for talent, these are all realities in coastal cities like San Francisco, New York and LA.  High costs, getting higher? Not in Ohio!!! 

Ohio is the perfect place for business because costs are low and there’s plenty of top notch talent. Ohio was ranked No. 1 Most Affordable State in 2020 by US News Rankings.  Last year, Ohio’s venture capital growth rate was three times faster than California’s and five times faster than Washington’s, as venture dollars spread throughout the US.  



Being from Ohio, the GoSun team grew up with the influence of inventive, industrious traditions passed on from the region’s best: The Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Charles Kettering, Neil Armstrong, and Clara Barton. Located just three miles from the University of Cincinnati, GoSun has attracted a lot of talent from one of the nations top design schools, DAAP. Also, with offices in the Bay Area and China, GoSun stays connected to the latest trends and technical capabilities.

It is the strong roots of ingenuity, hard work, and common sense that continue to drive our success.  With our home in the "crossroads of America",GoSun's team is obliged to meet customers where they are, regardless of political persuasion, background, economic status, race, etc.  This middle-of-the-road approach has enabled GoSun for break into large mainstream markets much better than competitors.

Final Days of Preptember

September is National Preparedness Month, a time dedicated to raising national awareness about disaster and emergency readiness. This designation was created in 2004, by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to help the average person equip themselves for emergencies in everyday life or even the case of a natural disaster.

Here are several resources from your Resiliency Specialists at GoSun to help you prepare:

Like it or not, outages and disasters happen.  Rather than living in fear, gear up with GoSun and have durable, portable solar technology for the best of times AND for the worst of times.  Each Prep Kit bundle is built to help you handle change:

Powerful New Product Launch

about 1 month ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

These updates often feel as though we are bragging about our success.... but hey, we can brag about our success to you, right?  

This week marks an exciting turning point for GoSun, as we have just launched a line of large, yet portable solar generators.  These crazy helpful powerbanks can run almost any appliance and they are optimized to run GoSun's full line of super efficient appliances that cook, cool, purify, and brew.

Meet Power 550 & 1100


Our largest powerbanks to date, with 550 and 1,100 watt hours of lithium ion energy, equip you with reliable, silent power to meet essential needs while off-grid - camping, events, mobile office, BBQ, etc.  We won't bore you with the juicy details on this innovation and all the ways it is useful, but you may want to watch this video: 


Portable Power to the People

Portable power is the very DNA of GoSun.  From day one, we've strived to bring incredible, super efficient appliances to people seeking more independence and resilience.  More than just powering your cellphone or camera gear, GoSun is different because we focus on your essential needs like refrigeration, sanitation, cooking, water purification, brewing coffee, lighting, showering, and so on.

Combining these power solutions with the Sun, you can have your very own power plant. With GoSun's Gear you'll never have to buy these items again: 

  • Ice - takes up 50% of the volume in your cooler, it crushes your food, then melts, making everything soggy and contaminated
  • Propane - dirty, and dangerous, its convenience is often out-weighed by the destructive environmental and health implications
  • Charcoal - smoky, cumbersome, and time-consuming, it makes you do all the work of preparation, coordination, and clean up 
  • Alkaline Batteries - toxic, and one-time use, these are never to be relied upon and won't let you recharge
  • Bottled Water - wasteful and contaminated with plastic, these make it easy to throw away money and stifle ocean life
  • Bad Coffee  - no thanks, life is not long enough to dilute our true pleasures with half assed attempts at the real thing

Pre-Sales on GoSun Power 550 and Power 1100 started on Tuesday this week and the best deals will end next Tuesday, Sept. 21st.  With delivery slated for November, now is the best time to prepare for the unexpected while investing in something that can charge your everyday.



Powerbank Industry on the Rise

The powerbank industry is already large ($17.4B in 2019), and based on the rate of advancement, it is going to be HUGE.  GoSun has introduced a number of smaller powerbanks over the past four years, and now we are GOING BIG as well.  Once again, the fossil fuel status quo is shaking in their boots.  Liquid fuels are quickly becoming inferior and loosing investment when compared to lightweight, compact, and high capacity energy storage.

  


What Others are Saying

GoSun is a market leader, so we often get recognition for seeding waves of innovation.

Fruits of Our Labor

about 2 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

If this past weekend holds true, the future is bright for GoSun.  We just had a record breaking Labor Day sale including record traffic, revenue and conversion rate.  It appears that GoSun is catching a wave and riding in the right direction.  

the image above is a screenshot from the backend of gosun.co the number depicted are not verified

* the image above is a screenshot from the backend of gosun.co, the numbers depicted are not verified nor meant to provide financial substance

GoSun has grown strong over the past few years, now we are ready to get big.  The market waves are pushing us into the mainstream attention, setting the stage for GoSun to become a household name.  Leadership and public opinion are beginning to push for climate action as our planet's weather is undeniably changing.  

Launching Soon

Your grandpa’s generator spent its life in the garage.  Due to its monstrous size, the horrible noise, and all the emissions, it was only helpful IF he felt like dealing with it.  Fossil fueled generators are quickly becoming a thing of the past.  

Next week we will be launching a line of new Solar Generators. Packed with energy, they are completely silent, compact and lightweight; always ready to join your adventures.

Designed to be our most versatile powerbank, it’s built to run your essential devices like Cameras, Power Tools,  Laptops, and CPAP machines so you don't have to worry about power outages. Plus, these products are optimized to power GoSun’s full line of super efficient appliances that cook, cool, purify, and brew.

What Others Are Saying

Breakthrough innovations get attention.  Here's a short list of GoSun's latest news and press links.  

This article in PV Magazine focused into the concept of glamping, but GoSun cannot be reduced to such a narrow market.  GoSun simply makes better appliances. You name it: glamp, camp, beach, boat, emergency prep, backyard, road trip... just better, because we can do so much better.

Sherwin calls investing in a clean-energy company, such as GoSun, "one of the biggest investment opportunities of 2021."

Necessity is the Mother of All.....

about 2 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

It has been another dynamic week, with things moving faster than ever - heartbreaking devastation of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana (over one million people without power), massive fires out west, geopolitical turmoil in Afghanistan, flooding and tornados in the Northeast, etc.  

At GoSun, we create solutions to avoid these problems.  

Most of us in North America, Europe and FarEast Asia live a very comfortable life and take so much for granted. However, as we are painfully seeing now in Louisiana, brownouts in California, and many of proud Texans lived through back in February, our electricity grid and the quality of life it provides us is such a privilege.


Inventions 

Necessity is the mother of all invention.   The only thing certain is change.  Two ancient proverbs that we live by.

At GoSun, we want you to be ready for that change and while you’re at it, we hope you have tons of fun. We're focused on portable and durable products that meet everyone's essential needs, like cooking, cooling, cleaning, and purifying water. We have something for everyone to experience the joy and real power of the Sun.

  • We cook without fuel, smoke, or fire
  • We keep food and drinks cold without ice
  • We charge our cell phones and laptops only with the energy from the Sun
  • We brew coffee without a stove - because we want to keep you going strong
  • We purify water with only sunshine
  • We make water with nothing but air and power
  • We make people's outdoor lives easier and more efficient


What others are saying about GoSun

Host Arlene Bynon sits down and speaks with CEO of GoSun, Patrick Sherwin. They discuss the growing water crisis in California, and how with droughts spreading throughout the world, new technology will be needed to help sustain our growing demand for water. Patrick tells Arlene about a new technology that will literally pull the water out of thin air, and how it's already helping a small community in California.

Supply and Demand Update

The impact on supply chains in 2020-2021 has been a critical business reality, with shocks in supply and demand rippling into all aspects of production and shipping.  Jammed warehouses, crowded railyards, equipment and labor shortages, and congested ports are all a frequent occurrence in today's environment. 

GoSun has increased the number of ocean carriers we work with, utilized more ports to expedite deliveries, and we are sourcing more products earlier. In addition to this, we are consistently evaluating the most cost effective shipping method with consistent service level. We have implemented contingency shipping strategies for more accessibility to container scheduling as well as air freight and parcel.

We are anticipating strong demand for our product lineup throughout the remainder of the year, along with supply chain congestion continuing through Q2 of 2022. Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure we are able to continue delivering outstanding products in the most efficient way possible. If GoSun is on your holiday gift list, now's the time to buy!


Labor Day Sale

At GoSun, we honor and respect hard work. That’s why we build our products in a way that allows you to work with them, improve them and keep them running for the long haul.  Right now, we’re running a sale to celebrate this Labor Day, where you can get over 30% OFF products on today’s deal page.

Out of a great need we are all holding hands and climbing.

Not loving is a letting go.  

Listen, the terrain around here Is far too dangerous for that.

New Patent Awarded

2 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

At GoSun, we aren't here to be average, we are here to be awesome!  So, we are constantly working on the Fuel-Free Frontier, creating ideas, testing prototypes and making original products.  While there are plenty of traditional outdoor products, there is a lack of clean technology that delivers independence and resilience.

 

Intellectual Property

At GoSun, we often hear, "you guys are amazing innovators, but what about copycats?" 

Indeed every success is followed by "rip-offs" and duplicates, but GoSun has emerged as an innovation machine like no other. Our intellectual property spans between the USA and China as it helps to maintain our leadership in the industry and provide barriers to competition.  Recently, we have been allowed our 6th utility patent, contributing to our strategy to increase business and net worth.

Setting GoSun Further Apart

We also believe that quality and value are very important. So, we have our own dedicated manufacturing and assembly plant in China that we own along with our Chinese partner.  We maintain the strictest Quality Control, and Safety Protocols for our workers. We also provide some of the highest wages in the region.

GoSun is a pioneer in creating, engineering, and building consumer solar products.  By focusing on meeting customer’s essential needs, GoSun builds a more identifiable brand compared to other companies who are only providing solar power or making traditional outdoor products.  When compared with existing product’s lifetime cost of ownership, GoSun is far more eco-friendly and affordable.  Like Tesla’s electric vehicles, GoSun’s products are better than the incumbent without compromising convenience or performance.

For a brighter future,

Patrick and the GoSun Team

Severe drought, likely driven by Climate Change, has dried up the water supply in much of northern California. Mendocino, the picturesque, tourist-favorite village with over 150 years of history, is suffering from the worst water crisis ever and it’s caught the world’s attention

GoSun is focused on helping people thrive by creating resilience to meet essential needs like cooking, cooling and charging. In 2020, during the peak of the COVID pandemic, GoSun launched a water purification and sanitation system, the GoSun Flow, to help address increased personal hygiene and off-grid needs.  Now, GoSun has partnered with Tsunami Products creating an Air to Water system to hydrate and sanitize those in need.

Other water solutions being considered take copious time and major funds to bring to life. So, the energy experts at GoSun, and atmospheric water extractors, Tsunami, have an ingenious water-generating technology that can be part of the answer, immediately. By extracting moisture found in the air, each modular Tsunami 500 Machine, can produce up to 200 gallons of fresh water per day.

Last Wednesday, GoSun installed the first unit in Mendocino, at the hardware and grocery in the center of town, to enable tourists the chance to refill water bottles and wash hands while extra water goes to the grocery.  We are making drinking water from coastal fog, right where and when it is needed. 

This marks our first demonstration of this innovative atmospheric water generation (AWG) technology. As the water crisis intensifies, it is good to have tools like this in the quiver. Stay tuned for more updates. 



Once again, to our investors – THANK YOU!  

Your financial stake is allowing us to expand our product line and bring resilience to an increasingly insecure world.  

For a brighter future,

Q2 Report

3 months ago

Hello GoSun Stakeholders, 

Here at GoSun, we love our natural world. We also love our families and our quality of life, so it makes sense to reduce pollution and protect our world’s natural resources where we can. There is a serious lack of viable solar powered products in the market. GoSun is leading a critical transition by creating reliable devices that are solar-powered (our forté), instead of using non-renewable forms of energy.

Q2 Summary

Q2 was another great quarter for GoSun with solid sales and the launch of two major campaigns.  We are sustaining incredible growth, even after a dynamite 2020, which brought the company 109% growth. Compared with Net Revenue from Q1 and Q2 2020 of $1,458,000, for Q1 and Q2 2021 

Net Revenue is up 83% to $2,673,000

According to GoSun, it is clear to us that the future will be solar powered, but Solar Energy isn’t just good for combatting Climate Change, it is also convenient and performs better than traditional fossil fuel energy.  As we continue on this exciting path to bring solar energy to more households, you have an opportunity to join us. We’re looking for investors who believe in our mission and recognize a massive opportunity for growth and good.

Highlights from Q2:

  • Opened a new round of investment on StartEngine.com/gosun at an increased valuation. This begins our third equity crowdfunding round and our quickest fundraise having already brought in over 600 investors and $700K 
  • Launched our most successful crowdfunding product campaign with a great team and solid press. The GoSun Chillest, our latest and greatest portable fridge, pre-sold over $930K with more than 1,000 Backers in seven weeks on Indiegogo
  • Hired several new employees in a competitive job market
  • Launched the worlds fastest solar oven, the GoSun Sizzle and sold out of limited release 
  • Solid sales including our biggest Memorial Day and July 4th Sales ever
  • REI, one of the nation’s largest outdoor gear retailers, cleared out inventory on several of our newest products
  • Shipped our new portable charging and energy storage devices: Power 266 and Solar Table 120

Challenges

  • Lost customer support lead during a period of high volume and had to shift team resources to cover
  • Delays in production with a two new products have caused a longer delivery time than expected
  • Increase in inbound, ocean freight expenses based on major changes throughout the global freight network
  • Limited supply of new North American made GoSun Sizzle solar oven

Welcome to the Roaring 20's

a time of more solar, major infrastructure improvements, economic growth, more explosive start-ups, and disruptive innovations

Whether you believe in global warming or not, we have all seen the impact of manmade pollution and destruction. We can all agree that it would be nice to protect more of the planet's limited resources.  We love nature and we love our family. We may also all agree that outdated, centralized utility infrastructure is a threat to our families security - access to power, clean water, etc.  

People who don't own a GoSun often do not understand a core tenet of our product development and design process.  We aren't just going solar because it is better for the planet, we make solar appliances because they are better than traditional outdoor products.  Similar to how Tesla has changed our roadways, we aim to free our customers from old drudgery by making products that perform better while being easier to use.  

Where's Your Investor Perk / Bonus / Reward ?  

Since GoSun aligns with new market surges in outdoor recreation and resilience, we have struggled to keep products on the shelf. Add to this a general backup in global supply and freight networks and it has become a recipe for delays.  Thanks for your patience, your Perk will ship by the end of summer (Sept. 21).

Here's the breakdown of when we will ship your Perk based on Tiers: (please allow about one week for delivery)

Heat Waves Incite Solar Freezers

4 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

These heat waves are super intense... 

The highest temperatures ever recorded were in the last few days. First up the Pacific Northwest, then in Southern California. With record-breaking heat and increased storm intensity comes the need to take action, ask tough questions, and invest in clean technology.

 It is hard not to see these weather extremes and not think of atmospheric carbon/global warming. With that it's important to note that solar powered products fight against climate change, because once created, they do not produce carbon emissions.  GoSun uses best in industry refrigerants that are nearly 400 times cleaner than industry standard.

Plus, GoSun's products are simply better than their carbon intense predecessors. 



Solar Freezer Market

Meanwhile, an interesting trend is developing in the refrigeration industry that is helping to answer both customer needs and climate change concerns.  The global solar freezer market is targeted to hit over $15 Billion by 2030.  This industry has become GoSun's bread and butter over the past few years as we grow sales and market share in portable solar fridges.

Refrigeration is an interesting topic, especially at a time when vaccines are needed to be maintained at a perfect temperature and transported to the far reaches of the world.  In many places, access to refrigeration is very limited and ice is also out of the question.  While some are looking at expensive, complex solutions to these problems, when combined with GoSun's portable solar energy solutions, an off-grid fridge is very accessible.  


GoSun Chillest Raises over $930K on Indiegogo

Since May, we've pre-sold over 1,000 new solar fridges and broken the record for the most successful crowdfunded fridge/cooler of all time.  GoSun is planning to fulfill these pre-orders at the end of the summer/early fall.  

 No company has been able to marry solar energy to power products better than GoSun.  With this track record of launching innovations, GoSun is making its mark, winning over customers and tech enthusiasts by building better tools.  

and, this is just the beginning, the tip of the iceburg, the foot in the door...

We hope you'll be around for the longer, deeper conversation as we transition to more independent, resilient, solar living.  

For a brighter future,

Patrick and the GoSun Team

Declaring Energy Independence

4 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

As the full swing of summer gets going, GoSun is firing on all cylinders (...that's a fuel-free engine).  Inventory is flowing like a river as our team paddles downstream, navigating rapids, welcoming new side streams and gaining more experience on a growing volume.  Global trends in outdoor recreation, preparedness and sustainability have aligned to deepen the canyon as the GoSun river makes its mark in history.  Let's Paddle On!



More People with Solar Power

Our mission is simple.  We want people to have more independence and resilience so we create portable solar power solutions that are better than today’s typical appliances.  No compromise of convenience or performance required, plus with GoSun, you’re not creating waste or emissions in the process of cooking, cooling, charging, etc.  

Solar is great to help fuel the fun, but it is also there when you need it.  In fact, a massive thunderstorm just hit our headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio and this message is being written on solar power stored within a portable lithium ion powerbank.  Constantly testing new products, everyone in the office was hand delivered a powerbank by our lead engineer within minutes of the utility outage.  



Chillest Solar Cooler Pre-Sale Ends Today

Over 1,000 Backers and almost $900,000 in pre-sales, GoSun’s latest and greatest solar cooler has crushed it on Indiegogo over the past six weeks. If you ever wanted to try our technology, now is the time.  Scroll other updates below to see more details about this innovation or visit the Indiegogo campaign before prices increase tomorrow, July 2nd.

Here are our Chillest VIP deals just for investors:



Declare your Energy Independence this 4th of July

It may seem impossible to cook food, keep the drinks cool, and clean up after the party, all without tapping into gas, ice, and water resources. But with GoSun, you can do it all without relying on grid power or burning resources.

At GoSun, we build amazing solar powered appliances so you don’t have to deal with fire, ice and resupply trips. Since our products are solar powered, they’re perfect for this weekend’s cookout. 


Four Products to Improve your Outdoor Experience:


1. Sizzle Solar Oven 

The Sizzle solar oven is just the thing for you to whip up some hot, yummy grub outdoors. Even if the sky is overcast, your Sizzle can still cook a full meal. Its innovative vacuum tube technology can cook, boil, steam, bake, or roast food at temperatures over 600°F.

Even though this oven is considered large, it is still light enough to easily fit it into the back of your car or truck. Transport it to a park or another house, and bring the sun food fun with you! 



2. Go Portable Solar Oven 

For an even more portable solution, try out Go portable solar oven. This little baby weighs only 2 pounds - 2 pounds! Each load in the vacuum tube and cooking tray feeds 1-2 people, and cook time is about 20-30 minutes. This makes it the perfect oven for a small gathering or for whipping up some warm sides at your 4th of July shindig. 

The greatest part about this product is there’s no need to bring your own generator or find an outlet to plug it in. That’s because it’s completely solar powered. No matter where you go, as long as you have an outdoor space and daylight, you can keep on cooking with the Go. 



3. Chill Solar Cooler 

Ever heard of a portable cooler that didn’t need ice? The Chill solar cooler uses the power of the sun to keep the entire unit nice and chill. That means no matter where your 4th of July celebration is located - in the backyard, at the beach, at the park, or wherever - your favorite food and beverages will stay cold. 



4. Flow Solar Water Purifier + Sanitation System 

A cookout is fun, but it can also be messy, thirst inducing work putting it all together. Hauling water is difficult, and the plastic containers are a strain on the environment. As an alternative, why not use whatever water source is available to you - lake, river, or rain - and purify it to make it clean enough to drink? 

It’s for this purpose that we developed the Flow solar water purifier + sink. This solar powered device is small enough to fit in a backpack, it can filter and pump 100 gallons of water. Our three-stage filter system removes 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and cysts, so that the water you end up using is safe for washing hands and dishes, and even for drinking. 

Cooking out this 4th of July without burning resources doesn’t have to be a head-scratcher. Try our solar-powered appliances today! 

For a brighter future,

Patrick and the GoSun Team

Passing Gas

4 months ago

Hello StartEngine Investors,

The world is changing.  With more information at our fingertips, people are growing in awareness and many are working to create a healthier future that is not reliant on fossil fuels. At GoSun, we are not trying to throw out our old ways or create villains, but we want society to move forward with new and better ways that are more in tune with available resources and thus more likely to result in abundance, independence, and resilience. 

Cars and trucks are going electric, utility grids are going with solar and wind, and now, with awareness of the many disadvantages of natural gas, many are moving to other energy sources for cooking and heating. Recently, the State of California has began outlawing natural gas for new homes because gas has more disadvantages than benefits.

3 Reasons why we are moving away from Natural Gas

  1. Gas is a major pollutant - although it is one of the cleaner fossil fuels, natural gas is a huge contributor to global emissions, it accounted for an estimated 36% of US carbon emissions in 2020 (see Bloomberg article below)
  2. Gas is unhealthy - emissions from burning gas are toxic and many don't have adequate ventilation to maintain safe air quality inside their homes
  3. Gas is a long term trap - once a building is plumbed with gas it will be consuming gas for decades with no ability to improve, unlike the electrical grid and appliances that are getting cleaner and more efficient over time 

Research about the transition away from gas with these articles:

  1. How the Fossil Fuel Industry Convinced Americans to Love Gas Stoves
    1. "they’ve urged us not to think too hard—if at all—about what it means to combust a fossil fuel in our homes."
    2. "I talked to one scientist who studied indoor air quality for decades and she said, without ventilating your home, you’re basically living in a toxic soup."
  2. Are Americans Willing To Drop Gas Cooking To Cut Back On Carbon Emissions?
  3. Is Your Gas Stove Destroying the Planet?

How do we replace gas?

The transition away from fossil fuels is not as hard as you may think. At GoSun, we believe that the Sun really is the answer, and since we all want resilience and independence, we make appliances that run on the Sun, plus they can run on AC and DC electricity.   Today’s technology allows GoSun to build fossil free alternatives that do not compromise performance or convenience when compared to traditional appliances.  

You may already know, Tesla is the most valuable car company in the world.  Just a little older than GoSun, they too have never designed or built a product to run on fossil fuels.  The reasons for Tesla’s explosive growth are many but the reality is that their cars are just way better than gas cars.  GoSun's portable solar powered products are way better than traditional products that rely on a constant supply of resources.

Why electric cars and appliances are better than traditional gas versions?

  1. Electric is cleaner and healthier - loads convert electricity at much higher efficiency than internal combustion engines can convert carbon, one large point source of pollution is much easier to manage than a bunch of emission sources everywhere (the smaller the gas engine, the dirtier the emissions)
  2. Electric is abundant and safe - utility power is ubiquitous with power lines and safety controls already in place so end users are both served and protected, plus you can make your own solar electricity anywhere you go (good luck making your own fossil fuel)
  3. Electric is getting better - appliances, controls and motors are getting more efficient and the national grid is getting smarter and cleaner (more solar and wind) with each year

Go With GoSun

Consumers are demanding cleaner, healthier products as we become more aware.  Governments and institutional investors are seeking more environmentally friendly and socially conscious solutions. GoSun allows the solar energy boom to meet everyday consumers with highly effective, portable appliances. The company and team have grown strong over the past few years, now they are ready to scale.  GoSun stands in the intersection where sustainability and profitability meet.

New Product Launch Goes Supernova

5 months ago

Our Biggest New Product Launch Ever

GoSun’s latest is an iceless solar cooler packed with fun features that has raised over $700,000 from +800 Backers in less than one month.  

Tomorrow (6/10/21 by Midnight PDT) is the final chance to pre-order at the lowest prices. 


Coolers are a pain in the ICE

Who likes sandwiches getting soggy and smashed? How is it that everything inside your cooler gets destroyed and stinky?  Why do we tolerate over 50% of our cooler's volume consumed by frozen water?  Good luck finding anything in that melty iceburg before your hand goes numb.

How about a cooler without ice?  

GoSun wanted a cooler that made its own ice and had so much fun built into it that we would look for excuses to get outside and enjoy it.  So, we created the GoSun Chillest…..

Temp Control in Two Zones

The Chillest is a complete redesign of what a cooler can be.  First, you’ve got a built in compressor to set the temperature right where you want it.  And with two zones, you can keep ice cream on one side and veggies on the other.  With temp. control, and a built in battery, you can have the coldest beer in camp, or become a hero anytime, anywhere. Time to say goodbye to soggy sandwiches and resupply trips to the gas station.  

Modern Power and Controls

Coolers got fancy in the past couple years but they are not making anything easier.  The Chillest brings you into the 21st century with built in battery to charge your devices, lights inside to find what you’re looking for and a smartphone App so you can relax.  A battery and solar upgrade gives you days of refrigeration and charging for all your devices.  

Travel Ready

One of the biggest hassles of outdoor fun is hauling your gear back and forth.  Coolers are rarely designed to for anything but back problems, so we combined large wheels with a sturdy, telescoping handle for pulling. Bungees and tie-downs lock your load so you can carry everything in just one trip.  Plus, Chillest itself is built to go anywhere you go: Vanlife, RV, boat, beach, etc.

Stay Organized

How about being organized when you’re outdoors?  The Chillest becomes the center of your outing with plenty of storage for devices (EVA pouch), removable baskets to organize food and drinks, a cutting board and a place for your waste/recycling (trash clips).  

Bluetooth Speakers

And what’s a party without some music?  The optional bluetooth speakers kick out amazing sound, while connecting to your smartphone from up to 50 feet away.  You may want to pack some extra drinks for the neighbors.

Stay Cooler

The Sun is very good to us, but since coolers like the shade, GoSun added an optional umbrella that plugs into the Chillest and creates an oasis of Chill.  The umbrella stands alone or can be held in the attachment that also fits the optional solar panel.

Is that a Solar Table? 

What’s missing from your hangout?  How about a swiveling table to play cards, serve food or use as a desk?  oh, and we’re making that out of a 20watt solar panel, plus we have a 120watt portable table, so you can recharge your Chillest during the day and keep it going indefinitely.  

Full Solar Kitchen

Those of you who know GoSun, know we deliver. You may also want to integrate the Chillest into a Solar Kitchen, where you’ll have the ability to cook, cool, clean, purify, and brew, with our breakthrough technology.

Save Money and Time

If you were to go out and buy all the gear we packed into the Chillest, it would cost you well over $1,000. That doesn’t include the long term debt and worry about buying the next bag of ice. By backing this campaign, you can be one of the first people in the world with a cooler that actually cools.

And instead of making you work, the Chillest works for you. 

Ending tomorrow, check out the Indiegogo campaign here.

The Solar Era Has Arrived

5 months ago

Hello Investors,

There are moments in our lives when we know, 

we are in the right place and it is the right time. 

Everything is trending up for GoSun as we scale up from our strong roots.  The COVID pandemic brought a mix of emotions, successes and failures, but it seems 2020 allowed GoSun to catch a groove.  That momentum is attributed to a bunch of factors, thus creating a new reality moving forward.  You are a part of that Solar Future.  

Here are several of the trends that have created GoSun's short and long-term success:

  • Outdoor Recreation is going nuts, just look at everybody that's at the trailhead or campground these days
  • Preparedness kicked in, even amongst the mainstream, because we all have to admit that toilet paper is important 
  • Global Cooperation earned a new degree of respect and importance, setting forth a dialog to begin addressing Climate Change, together
  • Backyard fun and micro vacations instead of giant blowouts to Disney World, made our proximal surrounding more important
  • E-Commerce got completely justified, necessary and often superior to shopping in store

GoSun's leadership team has been working toward this moment for many decades.  Our focus in renewable energy, energy storage, electric vehicles and efficiency is beginning to pay off as the entire world shifts focus away from the old carbon-based economy.  

The Future Will Be Solar Powered 

Unlike most solar companies competing for rooftops, government incentives and regulatory permissions, GoSun is focused on portable and durable products that meet everyone's essential needs, like cooking, cooling, cleaning, and purifying water. We have something for everyone to experience the real power of the Sun.  

Just like Tesla is a better car, people buy GoSun products because they are more efficient, more useful, and much easier:

  • We cook without fuel, smoke, or fire
  • We keep food and drinks cold without ice
  • We charge our cell phones and laptops only with the energy from the Sun
  • We brew coffee without a stove - because we want to keep you going strong
  • We purify water with only sunshine
  • We make people's outdoor lives easier and more efficient

GoSun Chillest Press Coverage

The Chillest is hot.  After launching last week, our latest portable fridge innovation has received a ton of support and press attention.  This kind of coverage only happens with real break-throughs.  

Thanks to you, we are a crowdfunded company, so it makes a lot of sense to have customers become investors to fuel our rocket ship. We hope you'll join us, for a brighter future,

New Product Launch: GoSun Chillest

6 months ago

Hello Investors,

Introducing GoSun Chillest, the ultimate cooler that's guaranteed to make your adventures more enjoyable. Without ice, your food/drinks stay dry and organized, plus you can use 100% of the cooler's volume. 

We launched the GoSun Chill in 2019 and thanks to feedback from over 1,000 customers, the Chillest is the result of another couple of years of innovation. The new  Solar Cooler is complete with a Built-In Battery, Solar Table, Umbrella, and Bluetooth Speakers. What's even better - Chillest contains dual cooling zones, which means you have a freezer and fridge in the same device.

And, of course, it can be powered by the Sun!


The crowdfunding campaign launched on Indiegogo on Tuesday, May 11th at 10AM EST and just 90 minutes later, the campaign had raised over $55,000 in pre-sales.  This product launch marks the tenth successful innovation GoSun has launched on crowdfunding, putting us in the top 1% of all crowdfunders.  

Since you are an investor in GoSun, we have set aside a couple special offers here:

The Chillest is full of extra feature to make it the coolest cooler on the market, including:


This video shows you that you can say goodbye to ice forever thanks to Chillest's 45 liters of cold storage with two zones to keep food cold and frozen, dry, and organized.


We are pretty excited about this new portable fridge.  Not only is it an amazing piece of green technology, it is a big step towards refining the GoSun Solar Kitchen experience. GoSun is committed to smart, resourceful consumers, plus we seek to make outdoor experiences as enjoyable as possible.  Take a closer look.

Stay Cool,

Patrick and the GoSun Team

Off to a Sizzling Start

6 months ago

Hello Investors,

Thanks to you, GoSun is off to a great start with this Equity Crowdfund raise on StartEngine.  We are delighted to see new and old investors stepping in to fuel our growth.  This fundraise helps us to reach towards our

 big, hairy, audacious goals* 

as we compete for market share in significant arenas.   * Rockets are not one of them, we are staying down to Earth. 


The past year has been a very challenging mixup for many small business models, but it has been an incredible year of growth, validation and opportunity for GoSun.  The increase in the outdoor recreation industry is a trend we anticipate will continue as more people realize the benefits of being in nature.  But, having fun is not all that GoSun is about. More importantly:

Impact, Resilience, Combating Climate Change

Those of you familiar with GoSun will know we launch new products based on your wants/needs.demands all of the time. Most of these solutions also find their way onto Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but sometimes we just go direct to our amazing customer base. In all cases, we are trying to push the limits of the Fuel-Free Frontier.

Meet the GoSun Sizzle



Introducing GoSun Sizzle, the most powerful, fuel-free oven of all time, it offers Sun-powered cooking for six people in less than 30 minutes!  The Sizzle is handmade with care and precision in Canada, by one of our lead investors, Glen MacGilivray.

Cook as you would on fire, just without the drama of smoke, dangerous flames or a nasty clean up job. Sure, you could use this on Mars, but the GoSun Fusion will take up less space in your rocket ship. Bake, boil, roast or fry with space aged technology that’s down to Earth!
