The Solar Pod combines solar PV, battery storage, a back up generator and a 400-liter fuel tank in a safe and secure self-contained unit. Designed for medium sized sites, one Solar Pod can power as many as 5 trailers from a single Solar Pod. Once connected by a trained engineer, powering the site is autonomous.

The site is powered by solar / battery / generator or a combination of these depending on the load demand. The solar element will either power the site directly, or will assist by charging the battery storage.

How it works

1. During daylight hours free energy is harvested from the sun into the battery bank.

2. Power is used and discharges the battery bank.

3. High demand spikes. If power is greater than the battery bank output the system automatically activates the generator.

4. At peak power the generator, battery bank and solar provide power simultaneously.

5. If batteries are depleted and there is low light the generator will supply power to batteries and output sockets.
