EcoFriendlyBuilder Modular Off-The-Grid Home #MODULARHOMES #affordable

Off-the-grid functionality is available as an add-on extra. The pyramid shaped roof of each module is perfectly suited to be fitted with a rooftop mounted solar panel array, which provide the necessary electricity and hot water. The energy harvested from the PV units is stored in a battery array, which provides a 12V DC power supply that powers the LED lighting, and can be used to charge laptops and mobile phones, and any other 12V DC appliances. An optional inverter can also supply a 240V supply if needed. When fully charged, the batteries can provide up to 5 days of power. The Eco Pods can also be fitted with a composting toilet, as well as a log burner, a thermal store for hot water use, and a log-burning cooker.
