( — November 8, 2016) Springfield, Oregon — AM Solar is the first solar equipment retailer to offer payment with Bitcoin, a digital currency. They are the first to offer Bitcoin in a fully integrated checkout on their site. AM Solar is an alternative energy company, that offers solar power generation kits for RVs. They offer kits with a wide variety of components including lithium batteries, inverters, charge controllers and more.

The solar company features “Pay with Bitcoin” buttons on popular products on their site. Orders that are paid for with Bitcoin can also be made over the phone or via email. Other solar companies have offered bitcoin payment via phone before, but AM Solar is the first to offer a fully integrated Bitcoin check out entirely on their website, where the user can choose Bitcoin as a payment method.  

AM Solar shoppers can either check out with Bitcoin directly on the site, or send an email with their order and Bitcoin payment.

Bitcoin has been described as a digital asset or currency. It has monetary value and can be used as a payment system online. It was introduced in 2008.  The transactions of Bitcoin take place between users directly, or peer-to-peer. The Bitcoin system works without a central administrator, like a bank. It is known as the first decentralized digital currency.

Some payment systems have started accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. The company Stripe, which offers similar functions as PayPal, now accepts Bitcoin as a check out option. PayPal also accepts Bitcoin as payment if specified.

AM Solar is the first green energy equipment supplier to offer a fully integrated online storefront. Just like AM Solar believes in the future of lithium batteries providing energy storage for vehicles, they see the future of Bitcoin in ecommerce transactions.

AM Solar strives to be cutting-edge at every turn. The employee-owned company wanted to be one of the first alternative energy companies to accept such a new form of currency. They want to provide off-grid products to off-grid people and do it using an off-grid currency. They didn’t want their innovation to stop at solar power kits, they wanted to incorporated it into all aspects of the business.

This innovative solar company wanted to open themselves up to a broader market, and to stay relevant with the changing demographics of customers and what they want in a solar company. As innovators in the solar field, the company felt it was important to accept an innovative currency as well.

By visiting, you can purchase solar equipment and check out with Bitcoin.
