The Unit allows you to slash your electricity costs at a specific site anywhere on your farm, and then move it to another site when the first task is done. This is energy freedom like no one has ever had in all of history. It’s solar flexibility.
The Unit is truly mobile and can be relocated to different areas of your farm. In addition, The Unit can be engineered to accommodate different voltages. For example, if you use 480 volts on your pivot irrigation, 208 on your cold storage facility and 110 for power tools, The Unit can be outfitted for each of these. In fact, it can handle almost any electrical needs facing the agriculture industry.
The Unit ties into the grid and can produce about 40,000 kWh per year using an 81-panel, 26 kW unfolding solar array. The panels are affixed to a platform that can be moved to different sites and fields using a tractor or full-size truck. For additional flexibility, with an optional generator and battery solution, The Unit can function during the evening hours and thus mitigate brownouts and blackouts.
Once the platform has been situated, three rows of solar panels unfold using a battery-operated cable winch. Depending on where the sun is positioned at that time, the user would orient The Unit so as to maximize the amount of generated solar power. The panel angles are completely customizable.
The Unit made its first public appearance at the 2017 Vidalia Onion Festival, wowing passerby and generating lots of buzz in the news.
How could you not be?? The Unit is quite possibly the coolest, most innovative new technology for farmers in the 21st century, and it gives farmers like you the ability to reduce your power costs all around your farm, all year round.
