A lean start-up approach helps GoSun move quickly to meet major consumer needs and markets with today’s latest climate technology.  Gaining traction initially with solar ovens, over the past few years, GoSun has expanded into portable fridges, lighting, charging, water purification, tiny houses and is now addressing power generators.  

The Problem




GIF


Traditional energy sources cannot keep up with today’s needs because they are vulnerable, inconvenient, and harmful to our environment. Grid power cannot be trusted with its long, complicated, and often compromised supply chain (Source). Centralized utility power has stripped individuals of freedom and locked us into unnecessary, expensive, long-term debt (Source).  


When headed outdoors, we are forced to compromise too many comforts of home unless we bring an expensive RV or boat.  Again, we are left vulnerable, buying more supplies everyday and throwing single use items in the trash after use.  Thriving while off-grid should not be difficult. 


The Solution






Combining the latest in solar, energy storage and electronics, GoSun builds consumer products that meet essential needs and are better than today’s incumbent without compromising quality, performance or affordability. Not only do these portable devices make it easier to enjoy the outdoors, they are also capable of answering the call during times of need. 


GoSun has developed a formula for launching clean tech innovations thanks to an experienced team, a robust online community, and an international presence.  By listening to customers in a massive online community, GoSun has leveraged insights to become a hub of clean living on the Fuel-Free Frontier.  These durable, portable power solutions fit into both outdoor recreation and emergency preparedness markets.

OUr Traction







Growth is the DNA of GoSun and now is time to scale.  Consumers demand cleaner products and GoSun is fine tuned to rise to the opportunity.  In a few years, GoSun has become the first consumer solar products manufacturer to break into mainstream markets.  Centered around enjoying clean power, food and drink while outdoors, business more than doubled during COVID-19 pandemic. With more innovation on the way, GoSun anticipates these growth trends to continue.

Competitive Landscape





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.  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. 




HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT





GoSun Solar Ovens are a game changer when cooking outdoors. They produce the juiciest and tastiest food you'll ever make. With five patents and six trademarks, GoSun’s innovative approach to harnessing solar energy sets it apart from the other solar solutions on the market. Prior to GoSun, solar ovens were slow, bulky and impractical.  GoSun solar ovens are fast, portable and convenient, plus they are safe to touch even while over 500°F (260°C). Our breakthrough solar cooking technology is:


-  Fast & Safe. Meals in minutes, but always cool to touch.

-  Versatile. Steams, bakes, roasts, and boils using only the Sun.

-  All-Weather. Near perfect insulation so that no weather is too cold.

-  Cook Day or Night. The world’s most efficient oven, solar and electric hybrid.




The GoSun Chill is more than a cooler, it's an off-grid refrigerator without the noisy generator. These Solar Coolers don't need ice, in fact, they can make ice.  A portable 12V fridge designed to keep food cold or frozen, dry, and organized. Say goodbye to fishing for soggy sandwiches in a pool of hotdog juice, the solar alternative has arrived.


A cooler that runs on the Sun is better because:

 

- No Ice. More space, less weight and fresher food.

- Sustainable. Primary power: Sun | Back-up power: 12 Volt & AC.

- Lasts Longer. Keeps foods frozen for hours.

- Charges Devices. Includes integrated PowerBank (lithium ion battery).


GIF

*The above graphic contains images of our beta product which is currently in production.




GoSun knows today’s best solar and battery technology. A series of powerbank solutions unleash the freedom of portable power to keep you going while off-grid. From small to large, these devices are making gas generators obsolete. Capable of charging laptops, tablets, cameras, phones, lights, and other devices - just plug in anywhere, anytime. 


A generator that runs on the Sun is better because:


- No noise, no fumes, no fuel. Silent and steady operation.

- Sustainable. Primary power: Sun | Back-up power: 12 Volt & AC.

- Lasts longer. No moving parts, very low maintenance.

- Charge multiple devices at once. AC, DC, USB




Water is key to life, so GoSun has built a purification and sanitation system that supplies your off-grid water needs. Joining a USB powered pump to a small solar power bank provides months of fresh drinking water. A kitchen sink that fits in your backpack, GoSun Flow sets up in seconds and can also turn into a shower.


A water system that runs on a micro pump is better because:


- No hand pumping, no waiting for chemicals to sterilize drinking water

- Versatile. Water purifier, kitchen sink or shower 

- Conserves water during usage so you don’t break your back hauling

- Set up a sanitation station anywhere to wash hands and gear



Tiny Houses are sweeping the nation, for good reason. Downsizing makes like easier and more free. The GoSun Dream is an off-grid, solar, smart home that can be placed almost anywhere to become a: vacation home, rental, office, mobile home/RV.  It brings its own power, water and waste management so you’re independent and autonomous.


A tiny house that runs on the Sun is better because:


  • No need for utilities, the Dream makes its own power
  • Hybrid solar + electric oven, solar cooler, water system, & energy storage.
  • All services hooked up: onboard water, electricity, heating and cooling.
  • GoSun portable products can be used in or outdoors




Our Team





Experienced designers, engineers, and change-makers, GoSun’s team is intent on serving the world with unparalleled clean power solutions. Through collaborations and by living with their creations, GoSun’s tight knit team is able to make innovation happen quickly. 


Fast, nimble, and well connected; when GoSun sees an opportunity, we go for it.




Why Invest




With a growing awareness of Climate Change and natural disasters, consumers are seeking more efficient, self-reliant products. GoSun is seeking investors who want to help us in creating and delivering real solutions.  GoSun’s solar products are easy, fun to use and they actually work better than conventional products.



The concept sketch above depicts  GoSun's capabilities; the lightweight camping trailer can be set up in just 30 minutes, providing: cooking, water purification, cold storage, wash station, prep area and solar + battery power supply.  Users can have more fun in the Sun and rely on the trailer to be prepared for anything. 

 

Mainstream consumers are demanding cleaner, healthier products and institutional investors are seeking environmental and social impact. GoSun allows the solar energy boom to meet everyday consumers. 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.

Signed to Join StartEngine's Secondary Trading Platform

GoSun has signed up to join the StartEngine Secondary for trading in the future

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

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. Keep in mind, GoSun cannot be actively raising capital and trading on the Secondary at the same time. Everyone following these messages will get equal access to information about when we will open for Secondary trading. 

In addition to the Secondary trading platform, we are always building toward an exit. Furthermore, GoSun's leadership is both growing the company and packaging the brand for the eventuality of:  1) going public, 2) selling securities on an exchange (such as StartEngine Secondary), 3) or being acquired. Of course the specifics regarding any deal or timing are not available.

Why Is GoSun In Ohio?

Ohio Delivers

Some People have asked us, 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.  

Go Underdogs, Go Bengals

Ohio, its businesses, institutions, people, and sports teams are often treated as underdogs in the national discourse. We don't mind. Some even thrive when being treated unfairly. In the case of GoSun, we have some foes to overcome (read propane, alkaline batteries, ice chests, pollution, climate change, etc) and we are both up for the challenge and sure of the outcome. 


01.20.23

New Extended Warranty Plans

Securing Your Purchase

GoSun is constantly working to improve our customer's experience and our level of service provided. Although we have some of the best customer support in our industry, we can always do better to ensure our customers are getting the best deal, great quality, and long term satisfaction.  

We know our products are unique and that's why we ensure a one year, no-questions-asked guarantee with every purchase.  Still, for some customers that is not enough to embrace the cutting edge innovations from GoSun, so we are now offering customers more long-term security.



Apple Care for your GoSun Product

GoSun now offers extended warranties on all its off grid products to give customers an added degree of security with their purchase.  We already have a one-year warranty on everything we sell, but we went with Extend, because we cannot provide the same coverage in house. With warranties up to five years and guaranteed shipping, Extend has you covered and they have not baked in a bunch of exclusions. 

Extend — which aims, in the words of co-founder and CEO, Woody Levin, to become the “Apple Care” for everything that’s not an actual Apple product — has raised $260 million, a Series C that values the company at over $1.6 billion.

Could There Be A Bigger Trend?

Market and Technology Trends

Human beings are creatures of hype. The latest and greatest gets its time in the spotlight and then it fades out, barely a memory. We've all seen trends come and go: fashion, diets, travel spots, etc.  Plus, we've seen plenty of losers: Dot com bubble, Typewriters, Shopping Malls, Sears, etc.

But, we have ever seen a market trend this big and for this long?? 

Climate Change. 

Global warming is forcing a clean technology rush like nothing before.  No biggie, only the future of humanity is at stake. Combined with a growing need for resilience in uncertain times, and it is a perfect storm (no pun intended).   What's more? Add in everyone's newfound love for spending time in the great outdoors, and...

GoSun is in the right place and the right time.  

Let's make the transition away from fossil fuels as graceful and fun as possible.  Once again, we thank all of our investors for your support, and welcome to the GoSun family!

GoSun has something everyone.

With our 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

Outlawing Gas Stoves

The world is changing.  

This recent article asks a big question: Is it time to ban gas stoves?

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?
  4. Is it time to ban gas stoves? 
  5. Gas threat to indoor air quality is real

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.  



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.

Phew, we made it through 2022 with solid successes and a very strong team. January is a dreaming month at GoSun, because the normal sales cycle tends to slow down so we can get into working on the business, instead of being buried in Q4 orders. This is a time for planning, prototyping, and strengthening our process. We have a lot in store for 2023, so please stay tuned. 



Growth in Solar Sustained 

Clean technology continues to set records in investment and growth. The market conditions with inflation and rising energy prices have created a fertile environment for startups in solar like GoSun. Although 2022 was a down year in capital investment, it appears the real leaders are all low carbon technologies that contribute to great resiliency. Here are some examples of growth in our sector:


Q4 Investor Rewards Coming Soon

All new GoSun Investors will be seeing their Rewards in January as they are shipped out on a quarterly basis. Thanks for your patience, your solar products will arrive on your doorstep this month and be ready for lifetime of fun in the sun.

2022 In Review: A Year Of Change

Hello StartEngine Stakeholders, 

2022 was the year the world woke up to the true power of solar energy! The energy crisis that followed Russia's invasion of Ukraine has accelerated demand for renewable energy sources that can be produced domestically at lower cost. GoSun's leadership has known this day was coming for decades and positioned GoSun to benefit from the influx of interest.

The World Economic Forum and WorldBank named the considerable effort towards clean, renewable energy as one of its top five things to be hopeful for in 2023. Furthermore, growing investment in clean energy supply chains and hefty government spending measures provide a foundation for future growth. Again, like we saw from COVID, large market shifts have created tailwinds that push GoSun to even greater heights. 

At GoSun, we continued to push solar innovation as far as we can. Despite its challenges, 2022 has been another year of growth and excitement for GoSun. We've increased our team efficacy, recruited more talent, gained media attention, and entered new markets.

This year, we’re proud to have launched not one, but five new products:

  1. Heated Blanket
  2. Grid
  3. Camp365
  4. Breeze
  5. Sport-E

As insecurity and Climate Change are on the rise, now more than ever, we believe solar power is vital for bringing freedom and resilience to people’s lives. Solar energy (quite literally) brings light in times of darkness and offers hope for a brighter future. GoSun is leading the way and yet we feel we are just getting started. 

Thank you for all your support, we'll catch you in 2023 for another exciting year,

Patrick Sherwin, CEO


Five New GoSun Products Launched in 2022


12.19.22

GoSun on NBC's Today Show this morning

Yup, you read that right. 

The GoSun Go was featured on the Today Show with Hoda & Jenna.  Gadget Guy, Steve Greenburg, made cinnamon  rolls in Central Park, NYC, on a freezing cold day in just 35 minutes. "It would have been just 20 minutes, but I had a sky scraper get in the way," Steve remarked. "That be fun for the kids, they'd get a kick out of that," exclaimed Hoda Kotb. 

Steve Greenburg is a  Tech & Gadget reporter, author of “Gadget Nation: A Journey Through The Eccentric World of Invention”, Gadget Guy on NBC’s Today Show & other TV newscasts and talkshow around the country and host of YouTube’s gadget game show, “What The Heck Is That?"

Let's Celebrate 2022

As the year comes to a close, it is time to reflect on our wins, call out some highlights, and celebrate challenges overcame. The GoSun Innovation Machine is going full speed ahead, solving real problems with portable solar appliances that everyone can use, everyday. 



Here are some GoSun highlights from 2022:

Launched Five New Products

  1. Heated Blanket
  2. Grid
  3. Camp365
  4. Breeze
  5. Sport-E

Increased Team Efficacy

With Core Values of Integrity, Efficacy, Grit and Heart, GoSun's leadership got serious about our process and accountability in 2022. New SCRUM systems for project management are now solving problems much quicker. Everyone working must meet these basics regarding their job: 1) Want it, 2) Get it, 3) Have the capability.

Recruited Talent

As we are scaling, we need seasoned professionals to help the company climb each step. Several targeted new hires made in 2022 have given GoSun the coverage we needed in Sales, Customer Support, and Procurement. 

Entered New Markets

Once again, GoSun has expanded into a new market with disruptive force. This time we've formed a joint venture to introduce one of the most innovative RV's on the market. Launched in June 2022, we've already delivered ten GoSun Camp365's, an off-grid solar camper that's way, way easy to tow.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

SECURE

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
