INVEST IN VROOM SOLAR TODAY!
We believe our DIY solar kits produce 5-10x the output of traditional battery-based portable solar energy systems. Easy to install and no batteries needed - we’ve found our kits to be more cost effective and sustainable than gas generators.
Our initial target market will be the $4.68 Billion small generator industry, as California is in the process of banning the use of <25hp gas engines by 2024. From there, Vroom Solar has the potential to grow into other remote energy needs, like EV charging.
From job sites, to disaster relief, to homeland security - Vroom Solar believes the need for mobile solar energy is more prevalent now than ever. That’s why our founder has taken his expertise in solar technology, and created a kit specifically designed to address these needs, and help those trying to accomplish DIY solar load management.

Vroom Solar DIY mobile solar energy kits utilize a simple plug-and-play control center with innovative load management technology. Backed by a team with backgrounds in solar, electrical, and marketing sectors - our founder/ CEO Luke Phelps is a serial entrepreneur who founded similar companies like Red Barn Solar and PVpallet, Inc. The Vroom Solar trademark is filed and complete and has a working prototype and POC. With two filed patents, we are now in the process of partnering with corporations like EV alliance and BayWa.r.e.
At Vroom Solar, our packaged solar kits are as simple as you can possibly make solar, all while being portable. Our kits are solar-direct, no batteries needed.
Solar-direct means true solar-to-usable power with no connection to a grid or battery system to manage influxes in power. Our patent-pending load management technology manages those influxes.
Adaptable to cargo containers, box trucks, trailers and more - our off-grid, DIY kits are complete with patent-pending adjustable mounting and install in about two hours. There is zero maintenance and no hardwiring, programming, or moving parts. Simply plug and play, all thanks to the power of the sun.
The Problem & Our Solution
Vroom Solar DIY kits offer all the benefits of solar without expenses and short-falls of batteries. Designed for remote situations - we’ve found that our kits produce 5 - 10x the output of traditional, battery-based portable solar energy systems.
Our kits directly convert solar into usable outlets. Along with being more cost effective and sustainable than gas generators - we’ve also found that they cost less than residential solar per watt installed.
Installation is simple: 2 people, 2 tools, 2 ladders, 2 hours. Our kits also adapt to equipment already owned by customers.
Our revenue will initially come from distribution partners and direct sales. After developing sales territories, we plan on growing into B2B sales, and developing future models to incorporate EV charging and different sized kits.
The Market & Our Traction
We think we have an alternative solution to our initial target market - the $4.68 billion small generator sector (source). In 2024, small gas engines under 25hp will be banned from selling in California - giving us a leg up with our competition, in our view. With the application ability for EV charging, we believe there’s really nothing on the market like Vroom Solar.
Led by our CEO who’s founded other solar companies, our combined team has years of experience in business, manufacturing, and the solar sector. We've filed our utility patents, finalized our trademark and IP, and are now working on additional patents around EV solutions.
We're partnering with Pivot International for our control center engineering, Advanced Racking to build racking components, and developing partnerships with EV Alliance and global distribution companies like BayWa.r.e.
We have big plans in 2023. Our Pro Forma projects us moving from commercialization to our first revenue of 800 kits by the end of the year. Also, we've been invited to speak at the Natural Disaster Expo in Miami, where we'll publicly unveil our product for the first time and begin taking pre-orders.
Our vision for Vroom Solar is to be a contractor-known name for solar generators. We have a goal of selling 4000-5000 kits by 2024, the gross profit from these units sold would equal our current valuation.
We believe we have a scalable model, because our kits are one-size fits many applications and our efficient packaging solution allows 104 kits to ship in one semi-truck. We’re already receiving large order requests from construction companies and support letters from solar distribution companies, and have multiple sales channels. After 2 ½ years of development, we have two products and strategies, and are developing varying sized kits and solutions for more revenue streams.
Lastly, we have plans to launch a Vroom Solar Foundation, with the goal to give away 1 in 25 kits to disaster relief, schools, or non-profits. We believe this program will open up new sales markets for our product and make Vroom Solar a fun company to work for.
With the help of this raise, we want to build additional prototypes, and enhance our control center engineering, aluminum extrusion engineering, and staffing. Join us on our mission to develop new energy solutions for everyday consumers, independent of large grid structures. Invest in Vroom Solar today!

From powering contractor tools to backup power to recreational vehicles, Vroom Solar kits offer power production on the go. Unlike gas generators or batteries, our kits are power producing, and once installed, require no maintenance or refueling cost. If you've already invested with us, thank you so much. If you've yet to invest, consider joining us before our raise ends tomorrow.
Our crowdfund campaign is wrapping up! We have exciting plans for the future and want you to be a part of our journey! Our campaign closes in just one day.
Robotic mowers are just one of the many use cases for our product. Vroom Solar kits allow you to set it and forget it when it comes to mowing golf courses, soccer fields, or any other large grassy area with an automatic, battery powered mower.
Only 2 days left to join us as we make portable power more easily available for customers, like contractors and lawn care companies. Our patent-pending, solar-direct technology manages influxes in power as light conditions throughout the day into a hierarchy of outlets, based on draw and available power. It's perfect for keeping for those battery packs for weed eaters topped off or charging electric mowers on the go.
There are just 3 days left in Vroom Solar's campaign. Join us in making solar power more easily available and affordable for anyone! At the heart of our company is a passion for giving back to the community. Our Give Back Program will do exactly that -- we plan to give away 1 kit for every 25 kits sold to schools, disaster relief organizations, and underserved communities. We know that electricity makes all the difference and can change lives, so we want to do all that we can to make the world a better place.
Thank you for investing in Vroom Solar! We hope to keep the momentum going in these last five days and encourage you to consider investing before our campaign closes on Thurs, June 1.
Our StartEngine campaign is closing soon. Thank you to all of the investors who have already invested in our company! If you haven’t yet invested or want to increase your investment, you can do so until Thursday, June 1 at 11:59pm.
The California Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE) could be a strong kickstart to Vroom Solar Kit orders. With 200+ certified CORE dealers in California, the program could send us on our blue ocean technology journey with favorable tailwinds, for sure!
The California Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE) is a $273 million voucher incentive project intended to encourage California off-road equipment users to purchase or lease currently commercialized zero-emission off-road equipment. This streamlined voucher incentive project helps offset the higher cost of zero-emission technology with a point-of-sale discount. There is no scrappage requirement, and additional funding is available for charging and fueling infrastructure and for equipment deployed in disadvantaged communities.
We believe that Vroom Solar kits meet all California CORE manufacturer requirements, and we plan to apply to be an approved California CORE manufacturer once our rigorous product testing is completed (target date June 1, 2023), and purchase orders have been received with a delivery date established (target date June 7, 2023).
Once we’re approved as a CORE manufacturer, California dealers will be able to add a voucher point-of-sale discount to the Vroom Solar Kit MSRP. This discount, coupled with significant tax credits available (Solar ITC and Domestic Content Bonus Credit) will deliver blue ocean innovation at a very attractive price to Vroom Solar Kit buyers.
The one week countdown is on! Join Vroom Solar in simplifying the solar generator and help make it more accessible for the average person to use solar power with their own Vroom Solar kit.
Uphill battles are fought in all our lives, and starting a business is no different. There is never a silver bullet or an easy button, but work, dedication perseverance, and hope.
We are ending our crowdfunding soon and I want to personally thank you for catching the vision of Vroom Solar and coming along side us on this journey. We are excited to be able to offer solar to even more applications than before and to make solar power accessible for individuals in more ways.
My team and I eagerly await what the future holds for Vroom Solar! I can tell you personally that the team coming together to push Vroom Solar into the marketplace is one of the best ones I have ever been part of. This team understands the importance of sacrifice, people, community, and a job well done. I am honored and humbled to be leading the charge with this team as my support.
I have tried to pass the CEO job to others in anticipation of the work ahead, but know this is still my role to fulfill, battles, victories, and all. This product has the potential to change the world of energy, and there is no easy button, just one step at a time.
Thank you for your support and your partnerships!
CEO and Founder of Vroom Solar
A lot has changed since we first launched on StartEngine. As we've grown, our business plan has shifted to include more details to help direct our next steps in milestones, sales and marketing, developing our packing facility, and growing our team. We're grateful for your support as we grow and we hope you find these stepping stones as exciting as we do. One of the milestones we're really looking forward to is the design lock on our Vroom 3000 control center this summer. Below is a summary of our Pitch, as generated by LivePlan:
Pop the champagne -- today we're closing on new property where we'll build our very own headquarters and packaging facility! The 20 acres gives us plenty of room to grow in the future, but for now, we'll be building on the 5 acre piece on the corner. Our lot sits right on Route 66 in Springfield MO, near Interstate 44 and the SGF Regional Airport. While the building is under construction, we'll be renting a space for our temporary HQ and packaging facility starting in June. We're really looking to this milestone and moving into our new space next Spring. Thank you so much for supporting us as we reach this goal!
Our campaign closes in just 2 weeks! Don't miss the chance to partner with us as we redefine solar power with our patent-pending solar-direct technology.

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. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
