Amazing Pop-Up Solar Power Station Delivers Energy Anywhere it's Needed

Beverley Mitchell, a writer for Inhabitat.com introduces us to a new pop-up solar power station that can deliver energy, water and internet connectivity to remote places around the world.

Ecosphere Technologies’ latest product combines several of our very favorite things in one easy-to-transport package: shipping containers, off-the-grid solar power, and clean drinking water generation. With their new Ecos PowerCube, the company can deliver a shipping-container-sized, self-sustaining solar power station by air, sea, rail or road to anywhere in the world it is needed.

Eco Power Cube

According to the Ecosphere Technologies‘ website, the “Ecos PowerCube® is the world’s largest, mobile, solar-powered generator. It runs on high power photovoltaic panels that extend from its container combined with an easy to set up wind turbine. Energy is stored in onboard batteries.” The unit is designed to fit inside shipping containers for easy transportation, and it’s available in 10-foot, 20-foot and 40-foot ISO shipping container footprints. Once unloaded, its array of solar panels roll out from their protective drawers, increasing the size of the array to three times the footprint of the shipping containers and the power output to about 400 percent more than the footprint could generate alone. Power production can start immediately at up to 15kW.
