What do chicken wings and Coors have in common? Besides being two parts of a great party, they're both shipped in refrigerated containers! These units maintain temperatures using wasteful diesel generators. Now, picture them being powered by solar energy. PolarPanel is a Forbes 30 Under 30 startup that retrofits these units with NASA-developed cleantech to not only save the environment, but save $60 billion in annual industry expenses. Help PolarPanel make your parties a little more guilt-free!
