North Creek Energy (NCE) began to develop and sell several off-grid systems designed for use in small remote homes, up to midsize on-grid “net metered” solar PV systems. NCE went on to develop the “GO GREEN” solar generator for high-end quarter horse trailer manufacturer Bloomer Trailers. These systems made their debut at the National Finals Rodeo Las Vegas NV 2011. One of the first customers to purchase the solar generator was from Lovington, NM and owned an oil-field pipe supply company.
After proving NCE could build a system that could power the trailer, the customer asked NCE to develop a system to run their oil-field pump jacks. NCE was tasked with building a system to operate the pump jack “off grid” since there had been such a large power cost increase over recent years. While studying the motion of the jack and the issues the producers were faced with, the idea for solar variable speed regen system was born. NCE developed, proved the concept, and filed for a patent protection on the concept… bringing to market the only green renewable energy system designed specifically for oil field pump jacks – Solar Jack.
