We love these new portable solar energy products developed for events by Gaia Group UK renewable energy.
The Solatainer® and Solawedge® have been developed to provide an autonomous off-grid power supply, integrating renewable-power and storage with diesel-power back-up to reduce fuel consumption, carbon emissions and carbon footprint
Created sustainably from a single-use 20ft ISO shipping container, Solatainer® supports a PV array specified for maximum solar gain and efficiency. When equipped with the Solawedge® the unit is scale-able up to 50kw and in its standard setup comprises of a 4Kw PV array, 6Kw/h battery pack and 6Kw stand-by generator.
During daytime operation the energy created by Solatainer®’s PV solar panels is harvested and stored in an on-board lithium ion battery pack. The standby generator is configured to run only when batteries are depleted below a software-set limit or when a demand spike occurs.
The results are spectacular, reducing fuel costs by 80% when compared to a conventional diesel generator.
Solawedge® is a unique, inflatable mounting system that allows rapid deployment across unprepared land or water. Find out more here and watch the video:
