Following on the heels of a recent and very successful online launch of Xpanse, the first-of-it’s kind solar awning for RVs, Xponent Power is now showcasing the awning for the very first time at the Tacoma RV Show in Tacoma, WA this week.
The Tacoma Show attracts more than 15,000 people each year, and attendees this year have an opportunity to be among the first to see the Xpanse awning in person.
Xpanse awning was launched in late 2021 and received rave reviews in the United States and international media, with considerable interest from the RV industry and beyond.
“We are seeing a high level of interest and demand across the customer spectrum – from RV owners to dealers, installers, and OEMs in the RV space,” said Xponent Power Founder Rohini Raghunathan. “Beyond the RV industry, we’re seeing considerable interest from the residential, tiny home, and emergency power markets.”
RVers who go off-grid have an increasingly strong but unserved need to adequately power their appliances, and Xpanse addresses this need very effectively. Rohini highlighted this point stating, “Even though Xpanse is available in three power options of 800W, 1000W, and 1200W, the overwhelming majority of pre-orders so far have been for the 1200W version; demonstrating the desire for more power by RVers.”
Xpanse can power onboard appliances, including refrigerators, lights, and microwaves. It is compatible with electrical components used in traditional solar installations on RVs, including charge controllers, batteries, and inverters. It can be mounted on either side of an RV and hence provides flexibility to RV owners who would like additional power but are not looking to replace an existing awning. It can also integrate with existing rooftop installations extending the solar power generation capabilities beyond the roof of an RV.
Based in Fremont, CA, Xponent Power was founded by solar industry veteran Rohini Raghunathan and a team of experts with over 100 years of combined experience in the solar and RV industries.
