Attend Hotwire seminars and visit our demo projects across the Tampa Bay area. Learn how we can help you with this energy-efficient, green technology through Education, Assessment, Installation and Products. For residential solar electric systems, our Alternative Energy Integrator will coordinate with you and the installers each step of the way!
We’ll be at the Manatee Sailing Association meeting July 9, Pier 22 restaurant, dinner 6:00, talk 7:00. John will give a seminar on “Battery Charging With Wind and Solar” For more info, see: http://www.msasailing.org/
Hotwire Enterprises is now the manufacturer of the KISS High Output wind generator. We are a
dealer for the D400 wind generator.

Tax Rebates, Incentives & Savings!
Ask about the $1,000,000 in rebates set aside by Progress Energy, FPL and others in 2013, or the 30% Federal Tax Credit – yes, CREDIT! For info about any rebates/ incentives see: http://dsireusa.org/incentives/incentive.cfm?Incentive_Code=US37F
Our residential solar power pros can help you get solar electric incentives and save money over time with the installation of a photovoltaic solar electricity system. Hotwire’s personal grid-tied PV system has already paid for itself!

Equipment for cruising sailboats, as well as RVs, over-the-road truckers, off-grid and grid-tied homes. Mostly, we concentrate on renewable energy and electrical efficiency with KISS wind generators and Kyocera, Mage, Aurinco and other solar panels. After 14 years of being the US distributor, we are now the manufacturer of the KISS High Output wind generator.
We offer energy efficiency with MPPT charge controllers from Blue Sky Energy, Morningstar, Xantrex, Solar Converters, and others and with Engel and SunDanzer refrigerators and freezers. Some of our proprietary products are the KISS High Output wind generator, Port Fan, wind generator Vibration Isolator, Mizzen Bracket for wind generator, solar rail mount kit, and both standard and custom made diversion load banks. Energy monitors from Bogart Engineering: the Trimetric system monitor. Tells you the
Battery voltage HOW MUCH CURRENT IS GOING IN OR OUT OF THE BATTERY battery state of charge in percent (YOU PROGRAM IT FOR YOUR BATTERY BANK SIZE AND TYPE). We put together a system that uses the Trimetric (or other monitors) in order to see how much current any charging source is making. It consists of a panel, spring loaded toggle switches, terminal strip, shunt(s) and instructions.
We make the Port Fan, a 12 volt cabin fan that is very quiet and long lasting. We are the source for water heater elements that can be used as a diversion load, using both 12 volts and 120 volts. The heating element has one inch pipe threads, and can be retrofitted to most US made hot water tanks. Some US made water heaters use a square flange; adaptors are available for these at the hardware store.
Make it more energy efficient in the first place. Then you won’t need as much wind or solar. We have energy efficient refrigerators from Engel, energy efficient LED lighting from Bebi, Marine Beam, OGM, Sensibulb, Stecktronics, and others.
Other products well suited for cruising boaters:
Led lights: replacement led clusters to replace just about any kind of bulb for navigation lights such as Aqua Signal and Perko, cabin lights, and cockpit lights. LED manufacturing companies that we represent include Bebi, Stecktronics, Dr. LED, Signal Mate, Marine Beam, OGM, and LED of America. We can also modify fluorescent fixtures so that LEDs can be used in them.
