Powershed is a solar powered charging station that tries to simplify and improve the operation and use of robotic lawn mowers. Powershed makes robotic mowers ideal for university campuses, corporate campuses, public parks, and athletic fields by expanding the number of potential sites and simplifying install and operations. It is designed to meet demand through a scalable production model and will initially be offered through commercial distribution partners and direct sales. The possibility of sub-licensing the product to robotic lawnmower manufacturers exists and will be pursued as demand increases.

Solar Alliance developed the Powershed design in cooperation with a researcher from the University of Tennessee and a full application has been filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
