Dark Burst Device

By stevebb, December 6, 2019

For extending the hours of solar panel usage. Soon to be required for every new California solar installation. Also can be used with existing solar.
What is this company please with 330 patents on Dark Burst.

Anybody know what the “dark burst” solar panel company is that Money Map Press is pumping? [“After December 31st, EVERY new home built in California will have to have this device installed, and one tiny company…” :)]

Yes, a 2nd Amen to that! Travis is the best of all newsletters to have helped us saved thousands.
I am not exaggerating. God Bless you Travis for your work and mission toward the sheep getting sheared daily with hype and half truths!

I could narrow down it to SolarReserve but its just mine some ransom google searches and other references. Would ove to read from your Travis on it.

Isn’t Solar Reserve a private company?

I think it’ll be Humless Energy out of Liddon, Utah, because of their partnership with ABB and their DC-AC converter. I’ve reached out to them to see if it’s possible to invest in them. Since I did that yesterday (Saturday), I haven’t heard from them yet. Here’s a link to an article about them:

The description of Humless Energy technology doesn’t line up with the description of the Dark Burst technology capability of running any solar panel it is installed on, off of dim light from daylight pre-sunrise, post sunset and even moonlight. Looks to me like Humless technology as described in the above article is doing something different.

Tony:
I agree with you it would be nice to figure out who is this Dark Burst technology company, with the idea of investing in it prior to California requiring it on Jan 1, 2020. Thanks to Travis if he can research & figure this out. This is a big deal for solar. We are counting on you Travis!!!

So, I saw this today and have been digging. I live in Las Vegas and have been considering solar panels, but since Warren Buffet now owns NV Energy and we can’t be off the grid, I’m not sure. NV changed the laws concerning solar panels several years ago to help the state, not the individual. They steal the excess energy. Check this article out from Fortune https://fortune.com/2018/12/06/california-solar-panels-new-homes/ …doesn’t mean anything other than crazy CA is going to do this. I wasn’t nuts about the “save $19k over 30 years” Huh? Maybe an interesting foray into an investment. I’m a riverboat… Read More Β»

There is a physical limit to the amount of solar energy that can be harvested: a power of about 1000 Watts per square metre if the sun is directly overhead, in the absence of any atmospheric absorption of energy. Then the efficiency of conversion to useful electrical energy is unlikely to exceed 20%. The idea that one can harvest a great deal of energy from moonlight is literally moonshine. This said, there are companies which manufacture solar energy optimisers – an electronic device which allows a great many solar panels to be connected in series without the current being limited… Read More Β»

Probably SunPower is the company that is buying the Dark Burst units but who is the “small company” selling to Sun Power?

At $83 per share from$30 in Feb looks like investors bought on the passing of the legislation.

Solaredge Technologies Inc is certainly doing ok right now but is it the “small company”?

Ray Talbot

I will be interested in the company, not just as a possible investment, but also to look into whether or not to add it to my existing solar system ( from SunPower) here in SoCal. My guess is that the contribution from moonshine is trivial (overall increase in power less than 1%) but that there may be something significant to be gained from a cleaver harvesting of energy during early morning and late evening when the energy is less than what the normal inverter requires. I can see where their might be 5 to 10% to be gained there.

Most likely an inverter product much like an Enphase IQ series microprocessor that takes DC input & inverts it into an AC output right at the source( each panel ) or a clever off-shore copy that is being promoted by some-one else. With a little zoom in one can identify that the Dark Burst promo unit that featured in the video is very similar in size & shape to the IQ series. It could also be a bigger push to getting the Enphase into the mainstream of existing crystal panel systems & newer installations to have their 3 unit storage… Read More Β»

Good comment (and first to the right answer, I think!) I just released my story on this one here.

It seems like it will be Enphase, but I think ABB group is more interesting, due to its partnership with Humless Energy, because Humless solved the AC-DV inverter conversion problem.

Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe

Could be, just remember that ABB is a $50 billion giant β€” more driven by global factory automation and electrical infrastructure projects than by any new tech or solar solution.

Enphase seems to have a good product but the shares are quite expensive looking at earnings, price to sales and average 5 year revenue growth at 6.3%. This seem unlikely to have any substantial price increase unless there is a massive increase in sales or some hidden factors.

Actually this is a new discovery to harness energy from dark nights from moon and this tiny company does exist and are making dark burst solar panel. This is a new discovery that may pave the way for 4th industrial revolution. I am aware of inventor and company , all I do not know how to invest in this company or whether they have a partner. If so who is the partner?

May be they are going alone.

Check the TEDTALK that talks about this technology. However I still can not see the Dark Burst kit that is being discussed here. But Tedtalk does mention the technology.. Need more research if this is actual company?

The touts of the Dark Burst device show pictures of what appear to be Enphase inverters, and they discuss the device as one for improving solar cell system efficiency. The skycoolsystems is pitched mainly for improving efficiency of coolin g systems, though they do mention small electric generation potential — but no “device”. So, I think the touts are either simply discussing existing Enphase inverters (which perhaps have undergone some improvement worthy of shouting out to the world), or perfhaps they know of some new generation of Enphase inverters which do something truely new. One significant advance Enphase does talk… Read More Β»

Hi Ray β€”- i saw this video the other day β€”- where he had a Tesla battery and had another device that allowed him to use the battery power when the regular power went out β€”- https://youtu.be/gP51JjnWvLo
It was entitled Can you run your house on a battery? Tesla Powerwall 2 (Founders Series)… β€” I really appreciated the info in your post!

This one was too easy.. just look at second patent they list in the promo.. enlarge it and you can decipher the number.. hit then USPTO website type purloined number in and bingo its Enphase

I just searched the US patent database and discovered that my ideas expressed in earlier posts were patented by Enphase going back to 2010. The latest being a Jan 29, 2019 patent no 10,193,347. Can not tell if those bust mode techniques are used in currently marketed Enphase products, or , perhaps, the Dark Burst touts know of some new generation product by them which does. In any case, either the company is Enphase or some new company is producing a product that will impinge on Enphase patents.
