Solatainer

Helping reduce your carbon emissions

Solatainer® has 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 asingle-use 20ft ISO shipping container, Solatainer® supports a PV array specified for maximum solar gain and efficiency. When equipped with Gaia Renewable Energy’s ground breaking Solawedge® the unit is scale-able up to 50kw and in its standard setup comprises of a 4Kw PV array, 20Kw/h battery pack and 16Kw stand-by generator.

During daytime operation the energy created by Solatainer®’s PV solar panels is harvested and stored in an on-board 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 circa 80% when compared to a conventional diesel generator.
