Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. is a USA based manufacturing company that develops environmental technological solutions for global markets.

In June 2014, Ecosphere Technologies came into limelight when they announced the completion of world’s largest portable solar powered generator. This mobile solar generator was named as “Ecosphere PowerCube”.
Ecosphere Technologies specialize in producing technologies that are used extensively used for military purposes to disaster relief and specifically for humanitarian efforts.

This Powercube portable solar generator is available in three sizes and can be transported by truck, train, boat or plane. It can be installed in any workspace with sufficient space to accommodate a 10’, 20’ or 30’ standard ISO shipping container.

The generator is capable of generating 15 kw of electricity. Once the solar generator is reached its destination, with a push of a single button, the system is ready to go. The generator can be used for communications base, shelters as well as water treatment plant.

The rollers in the container have hydraulic actuators to support, which means they can be positioned easily. The photovoltaic solar panels have the batteries in built which store the energy on board.

The energy stored can be used to power up internet, satellites and wireless connectivity up to a range of 30 miles. The excess power can be used for external uses such as hospitals and schools.

The unit comes with on-board atmospheric water generators, which can take water from the air. It means unit doesn’t need a nearby water source as it is self sufficient with water regardless of its destination.

In 2012, leading energy firm HHV Solar Technologies from Bangalore developed a portable solar power generator that could produce 600 watt capacity of energy. This portable generator weighed 415 kg and could be deployed through air even to the remote locations.

In a tropical country like ours where we have sunlight all year round, this generator is an ideal substitute to the smoke emitting generators.

Using #Solar energy to meet the power needs is eco-friendly as well as pocket-friendly. But there are various terms and conditions on which the efficiency of solar power depends. Let us take you through some pros and cons of using solar power.

PRO:
You end up saving up a lot on your electricity bill. According to a new report by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center, a fully financed solar PV system costs less than the energy purchased from a residential customer’s local utility in 42 of the 50 largest cities in the United States.

CON:
Installation of solar panels cost a lot of money. So, unless you want it for the long term, it’s not feasible.

PRO:
They don’t make any sort of disturbing noises whatsoever as there are no moving parts. So, they will never

CON:
They are of no use in places which do not experience prolonged sunlight since they will fail harvest energy in the absence of proper sunlight.

PRO:
It’s easier to set up solar panels to produce electricity in rural areas where there is no traditional supply of electric power.

So, these were some of the pros and cons of using solar energy. After all, everything has a dark side. If you are looking to install solar, replacing your old power guzzling ceiling fans with Gorilla is a must. Read why!

Solar energy is the most abundant form of #renewable energy which is harnessed using various technologies. A solar cell is the basic unit of every solar technology that directly converts solar light into electricity through a chemical and physical process. Energy conservation is quite critical at the moment and it’s time to switch to using renewable resources.

Here are some of the solar appliances that can be used at home:

  • Solar charger
  • #Solar chargers can be used to charge your phones, laptops and batteries on an everyday basis. The act of charging a phone consumes very little electricity but you will end up saving a chunk of money when you’ll start using it every day!

  • Solar indoor lights
  • Using solar panels to power your indoor lighting system 24/7 will not only save you a lot of money but also help in energy conservation which is pretty crucial at the moment.

  • Solar water heaters
  • Electric geysers consume a bundle of power and replacing them with solar water heaters is an efficient alternative. There are generally two types of solar water heating systems – active and passive. Active ones have circulating pumps and the passive ones don’t.

  • Solar oven
  • These little ovens can work at a temperature of up to 350 degrees using solar energy alone. It’s made of glass which absorbs the sun’s heat and magnifies it which then can be used for #cooking. This is the best option for camping trips and family picnics.

  • Pool and hot tubs
  • Solar power units use solar energy to heat the water and clean pools. And if you don’t have an inbuilt solar kit then you can buy one and use it. It’s a little costly but it pays for itself in terms of energy savings.

  • Passive heat storage tubes
  • These tubes are basically #greenhouse fiberglass tubes that look like thin cylinders which are hollow. These tubes can be filled with water and used to heat rooms.

Utilizing renewable resources for daily usage is an excellent way to save money and conserve #energy. Our Gorilla fans use electricity but serves the purpose of saving money by cutting down the bill by 65%.
