How We Got Started

The concept of developing a product that could incorporate solar energy with technology to charge small electronic devices came about during my service in the United States Navy, throughout my career in Naval Special Warfare as a Combatant Craft Crewman I deployed all over the world in various environmental setting.  Throughout my deployments to arduous environments we typically did not have the ability to consistently charge electronic devices and the concept start to be developed.  Upon my retirement in 2009 as a Chief Warrant Officer I joined Strategos Consulting as the Vice President of Training.  Our company provides training and services to the Department of Defense, and industry. 

Since my time with Strategos I have had the opportunity to work with solar and technology companies, which provide a vast amount of knowledge and experience.  In 2014, my wife and I formed Solar Up LLC with the sole purpose of designing and manufacturing our product “ The SunPro”.
