You will work towards the improvement and updating of the Blue Sky Energy and Genasun lines of solar charge controllers. One main responsibility will be to contribute substantially to the design and manufacture of new charge controller products in their most important feature: MPPT power control and highly efficient DC power management at every level of the product’s operation.

Some of the projects involved in this role include:

  • • Upgrade the present charge controller line to incorporate new technology and be better aligned with current and future market demand.
  • • Engineer and construct a robust test platform for both existing and new products to allow flexible manufacturing options.
