EasyGrid 5000Li Case Study
These luxury glamping pods are situated on Cassafuir Farm in Stirlingshire, Central Scotland and offer a holiday getaway in the middle of a beautiful 160 acre deer farm.
The stunning location meant that a main connection to the pods was not a feasible option, the cost was just too high so an off grid solution was needed to deliver the power needed.
The owners contacted Energy Solutions for advice and pricing on a standalone hybrid system to power the toaster, kettle, fridge, lighting, WiFi, plug sockets and electric towel rails in each pod.
The Hybrid team recommended an EasyGrid 5000 lithium with integral 3G router connected to a 4kW solar array, SDMO 10000E diesel generator and an AirForce 1 wind turbine. The whole system has now been installed to provide power whilst final preparations are made for the sites’ first visitors.
The combination of solar and wind inputs means the system will run for the majority of the time off renewable, free energy with the generator offering occasional back up when loads peak during cold months and full occupancy.
