Solar-generator powerhouse Bluetti is throwing a New Year’s bash as the first month of 2023 unfolds. But instead of champagne and confetti, the ongoing promotional party — called “The Sun Shines Wherever You Go” — offers you great deals on new solar panels and other products.

This post is brought to you by Bluetti.
Running through January 25, the promotion celebrates Bluetti’s innovative new solar panels, offers great deals on other products, and serves as an open call for fans to become “Bluetti Heroes.” As such, you could showcase your experiences with the company’s power products for an upcoming documentary.

The new Bluetti Heroes program encourages users to share their experiences with the company’s power products. Any user can apply to become a Bluetti Hero. The company said it will choose about 15 applicants to take part in the documentary. Afterward, each Bluetti Hero can pick any Bluetti product priced at $1,000 as a gift.

So far, the event has seen four heroes showcase their unique lifestyles on Bluetti’s YouTube page. Some of them find road trips, camping and off-grid living in vans or RVs more fulfilling — and more fun — with Bluetti’s gear.

Using the company’s solar generators and panels, Bluetti Heroes gain freedom from power shortages and live in more sustainable ways, the company says. Anyone living with frequent power outages in disaster-ravaged areas may find the Heroes’ experiences inspiring, the company added.

More stories are in the works and will soon hit the screen, Bluetti noted, adding that all users are welcome to join in by applying.

Bluetti recently released two new solar panels — the highly portable PV68 and the very powerful PV420. Both are made from monocrystalline silicon and coated with ETFE to ensure a 23.4% conversion efficiency and longer life.

Weighing only 7.5 pounds and producing 68W of power from sunlight, the PV68 can be carried around along with a small generator like the EB3A for outdoor activities. And right now, you can get the bundle for $299, which is $199 off the regular price.

Meanwhile, the PV420 produces 420W of power, filling up a generator in a flash. At a weight of just over 30 pounds, it can tucked into a car trunk along with the popular AC200P for a road trip. You can get $500 off this bundle, now priced at $2,298.

PV420 starts at $899 (was $1,099) — save $200.

PV68 starts at $99 (was $199) — save $100.

With a modular and stackable approach, the AC300 and B300 combo stretches the definition of portable power station and allows for easy upgrades with more power. You can reach a maximum of 12,288Wh when four B300 expansion LFP batteries are connected.

The AC300 inverter can power all regular home appliances with up to 3,000W of continuous output and a 6,000W surge capability. Two separate MPPT controllers inside give the unit a max of 2,400W solar input, along with the flexibility to use two different solar arrays.

The recharging rate can even top at 5,400W if combining a wall adapter and a solar panel. The combo also supports 240V split-phase bonding to run other high-powered equipment, and all-day UPS features to prevent blackouts.

AC300 + two B300 batteries starts at $5,099 (was $6,297) — save $1,198.

A successor to the popular AC200P, the AC200Max ramps up the technology and offers expandability options through extra battery modules. Two added B230 batteries bring capacity to 6,144Wh, and two added B300 batteries ramp it up to to 8,192Wh, for example.

Even alone, the AC200P packs 2,048Wh of power and can deliver 2,200W of power for multiple devices via its 14 outlets. And it offers two wireless charging pads on top.

There are seven ways to top up this all-in-one power beast. You can use a 500W adapter, a 900W solar panel, a lead-acid battery, a car battery or go with combined dual charging, like 1,400W AC and solar input.

AC200Max + B300 battery starts at $3,499 (was $4,098) — save $599

AC200Max + three PV200 solar panels starts at $2,799 (was $3,396) — save $597

The massive EP500 power station features a 5,100Wh capacity, a 2,000W inverter and an array of outlets. It’s great for home emergencies, off-grid cabins, RVs, boats, camper vans and situations where multiple power-hungry appliances need electricity.

For easy mobility, the station features four wheels on the bottom. And with several charging methods, the large battery can be topped up in just a few hours. You can combine solar and AC charging to input up to 1,800W, and that can recharge the EP500 in just 3.3 hours. The battery also supports 24/7 UPS to protect essential loads from outages, and split-phase bonding to provide 240V for high-powered devices.

EP500 starts at $3,999 (was $4,999) — save $1,000

EP500 + four PV200 solar panels starts at $5,595 (was $6,995) — save $1,400
