Cutting Edge Power was founded in 2014 by Jim Cardona and Bobby Cardona in Dallas, TX. Both engineers still in their prime, they felt a calling to make a difference in the world by leveraging their skills and knowledge of product design and manufacturing. They noticed the vast majority of people genuinely wanted to improve our planet and embrace this cool new technology (solar and wind power), but no one knew how. Solar and wind power systems were still too complicated and dominated by the utility-scale industry. There were no solar or wind products for normal people like themselves.
The mission was clear: To provide innovative, independent,
and sustainable power in every home and business on earth.
But where would they start? There were so many products that needed to be designed and brought to market, it almost seemed impossible to bring solar and wind to the masses, much less in their lifetime. That’s when they decided they would need to develop a unique, rigorous design process in order to accomplish their mission and keep up with record-breaking industry growth.
This unique philosophy spawned our name: Cutting Edge Power
Now, the vision was evident: Our goal is To modernize the
world with abundant and sustainable power for everyone.
Innovative Renewable Energy Solutions
We believe that American companies can still compete in this economy, and win. With a heavy emphasis on engineering, Cutting Edge Power has now grown to be a leader in our industry. Almost all of our products are assembled or fabricated in USA by an exceptionally capable team of technicians.
We're here to stay: Cutting Edge Power has received zero investor funding, zero government grants, zero government loans and we do not use crowdfunding sites to develop products. We are quickly growing but we are not another fly-by-night startup or foreign owned company. We develop products with our own US-based engineering team and with feedback from customers like YOU!
We think electricity should be supplied to a home through an appliance, NOT from a utility company that pollutes the environment or overcharges and abuses their customers month after month after month. Not only that, but we find it unacceptable for people in developing countries to live without electricity.
Energy Independence doesn't have to be all about sacrifice, conservation or downsizing: Cutting Edge Power designs systems to maintain or exceed the daily power requirements we're accustomed to. There's plenty of sunlight and wind for all of us!
We’re introducing a new wave of manufacturing!
Most people remember manufacturing as dirty, boring, dangerous, repetitive and mindless work. But here at Cutting Edge Power, we’re introducing a new wave of manufacturing! We're a team of creative, fast-paced and detail-oriented technicians and engineers. Most of our team in Houston are what we call Makers. Think: “Thomas Edison’s Invention Factory.” Makers are well-versed in a wide range of processes including 3D printing, 3D CAD design, CNC 2D cutters, ultrasonic cutters, electrical design and wiring, mechanical design and assembly, performance testing and many other aspects of manufacturing and design.
Being knowledgeable and experienced in these technologies enables us to quickly produce special tooling like jigs, templates or brackets to build almost any custom solar generator combination. We’ve even designed and built our own battery welding machine specifically to achieve our high standards.
It’s a fun place to work and we love what we do!
We are not just another reseller or middle-man like most solar companies out there. This means sometimes custom products will include a lead time (time for us to source components and assemble and ship your order). We ship every day Monday through Saturday and transit times are typically 2-3 business days.
Our solar generators are built in our Houston facility. Many of our smaller products such as micro wind turbines and solar accessories are almost entirely built in our Houston facility. Most of our solar generator housings are produced in USA due to shipping cost efficiencies. Our lithium battery cells are stocked at a local distributor and arrive in weekly shipments. Battery cells are welded by hand and assembled in our Houston facility.
We’re here to save you time and money!
Of course you’re capable of building your own solar generator or other solar and wind products. But we provide value to you by doing the tedious things like calculating wire size, negotiating wholesale pricing on components, checking compatibilities of components and investing in tooling to help us build quickly.
The bottom line is: We’re here to save you time and money!
