Our sustainable learning center in Montreal needs power!
Irrigation pumps, aquaponics systems and power tools require more juice than our single solar panel can provide. So we’ve created a comprehensive energy plan with solar panel charge stations placed strategically around our land.
The energy from these stations will serve 3 primary functions:
- Powering tools used in construction builds, including the upcoming build of our Sustainability Learning Centre in Summer 2014-2015
- Filtering our pond to create a crystal clear ecosystem for aquatic life, and pumping that water to our gardens through an irrigation system
- Powering the pump and filtration of the aquaponics system in our recently constructed Earthship-inspired greenhouse
Breakdown of What We Will Use Money For.
8 245 Solar Panels
4 6V 435Ah Batteries
1 Charge Controller
1 Solar Rack
Cement Slab for grounding
