Solar-powered EcoPods are flat-packed tiny homes with a low environmental footprint

Fabricated with a sustainable soft wood, the tiny pods are comprised of solar-powered kits that can be flat-packed for easy shipping. Designed to be shipped anywhere in the world, they are easily erected by three people. Stenton said an entire off-grid eco resort can be constructed in a very short space of time. For now, he has teamed up with several landowners to develop a local network of these tiny resorts complete with electric transportation, bicycles, e-bikes for sustainable movement. Six resorts are in the planning stage, and the first pilot is expected to open in Spring, 2017.
