Climate And Energy Crises Mean More Blackouts. What To Do?

We live in a world and a society that is deeply dependent upon electricity. If the power fails for a few hours, we are distracted and bored. If the outage is longer, the consequences shatter everything we know about modern conveniences, routines, and leisure.  

Power outages are sudden and can last for hours or even days. More and more people are looking for power independence to address unexpected blackout issues, and BLUETTI is ready to answer that demand. In fact, BLUETTI will soon announce the second generation of its modular power station, the AC500. After 2 years of development and product iteration, the AC500 is BLUETTI’s most powerful solar generator yet. The location-independent complete system has been designed so all components are precisely matched and prepared for quick installation. With the companion battery pack B300S, the AC500 will offer you confidence during home emergencies or the ease you desire during outdoor leisure activities.   

Rest Assured in the Event of a Blackout

With so many regions in the world facing summer heat waves, grid regulators are issuing dire warnings about the risk of blackouts alongside surging demand for energy. Most of us have experienced the unexpected frustration when a sudden blackout stifles our long-awaited summer plans.

The BLUETTI AC500 is designed to let you slowly scale up your battery backup system– that means the system begins by powering up only the most important electronics. This simple and elegant method keeps your whole home energized in an outage. The AC500 has a 24/7 Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) function; it can automatically detect a power failure and assume over 99% of your electricity needs in just 20 milliseconds. When the conversion takes place, you’ll hardly notice the difference. Your electrification needs, like a CPAP, fridge, microwave oven, washing machine, or even garage heater, are ensured with the AC500. 

Size Does Matter — and Why Bigger isn’t Always Better

A solar power generator makes use of energy provided by the sun, which is then converted into electricity. It’s vital to store the power so that it can be used when it’s required — and that’s where battery storage comes into play. The modular design of the BLUETTI AC500 allows you to expand storage generating capacity by connecting B300S or B300 external battery packs for a maximum of 18,432Wh.

The rule of thumb for solar generators seems to be that larger sizes produce more power output at any given time; however, we know that there’s often an exception to the rule. The AC500 is rare in its efficiency, as its design significantly shrinks the overall size and unibody weight. Its very appealing design increases the flexibility to carry each module individually instead of every component at once, and you can replace any batteries according to the requirements of your particular situation.  

Be Prepared Wherever Power is in Need

Being able to gather energy from the sun and to store it in a high-capacity battery will give you comfort and consolation when the grid lets you down. With the BLUETTI AC500, there’s no need to rely on the utility grid and no more worry about power failure. 

And you can equip your off-grid life with AC500 + B300S combo. Easy to transport, safe to use indoors and outdoors, and nearly silent when in operation, the AC500 is an ideal solution to save electricity bills while always keeping your devices powered and ready to go. You’ll be able to charge it at home with wall outlets, in the car with a cigarette lighter port, or even in the wild with merely prime sunshine. When you become powered by the sun, you’ll have instant electricity wherever you are, and you’ll have unlimited access to energy for charging batteries during the sunlight hours.

BLUETTI is dedicated to building a future with eco-friendly energy. The company’s AC300, its very first modular power station, has proven to be a triumph since its debut. If there’s one constant in today’s world, it’s that technology is always changing. The AC500 is a new generation, fully upgraded version of the BLUETTI earlier model. The AC500 advancements present opportunities — its various and very alluring features include a 5,000W pure sine inverter (10,000W surge), so you can run high power devices without any hassle. An intuitive BLUETTI App allows you to directly monitor and control AC500 from your palms.

Antique gasoline generators, which produce toxic fumes and pollution, produce unbearable noise, and consume non-renewable petroleum resources, are a thing of the past. The BLUETTI AC500 solar generator releases no pollutants when it produces and stores energy. 

You can rest easy knowing that your camping or boating trip is powered by quiet clean energy. Your home will be safe and your family will be healthy when a loss of power affects your neighborhood. You will experience the best solar modular power station with the AC500 as BLUETTI reveals a new era of solar. 


With over 10 years of industry experience, BLUETTI has tried to stay true to a sustainable future through green energy storage solutions for both indoor and outdoor use. The company has constantly strived to deliver an exceptional eco-friendly experience for everyone and the world.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
