- The solar-powered device manufacturer GoSun has presented its first little house on wheels: the off-grid GoSun Dream for 69,500 US dollars, which will be available next year.
- With the help of its power supply systems, which also include solar panels, the Dream can – depending on local conditions – remain offline for a month.
- According to Patrick Sherwin, GoSun’s founder and CEO, this tiny house fills the energy efficiency gap that many other small home manufacturers hadn’t prioritized.
- GoSun has seen “tremendous interest” since the tiny house was unveiled, Sherwin told Business Insider in an email interview.

The solar-powered device manufacturer GoSun has presented its first solar-powered small house on wheels: the off-grid GoSun Dream.

“A lot of our customers bought our small home solar devices, so we attended a few small in-house conferences,” Sherwin wrote in an email interview with Business Insider. “We found that tiny home builders are either focused on luxury goods or on low cost. No one focused on energy efficiency and solar, but many potential buyers want a well-built little home with off-grid capabilities or solar for backup power.”
