Sustained, flexible operation

Our platform provides more flexibility of use and longer asset operation than generators, small engines and batteries, by eliminating service interruptions, battery charging and exhaustion, and copper wire limitations.

Improved safety

Our technology is safe. It even protects operators from the safety risks of generating, transferring, storing and distributing electricity over copper wires. It provides these benefits while reducing the need for specially trained personnel and the operational challenges of relying on fuel and batteries.

Agile capabilities

Compared to other high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) power solutions, for example, our platform maximizes payload and minimizes power management weights while operating more cost effectively.


Here are a few key features you should know about PowerLight

Giving You the Space to Be Free Wirelessly
