Last month I ran a story about a delivery with Bill Kastinos from Tortoise Shell Homes to Chanslor Guest Ranch located 1 mile north of Bodega Bay. You can read the Tortoise Shell Camping Cube Delivery post here.
During the last month Bill has installed a wind generator on the camping cube, which will be used to power the cabins electrical needs. Initially, I thought they were going to be putting in solar panels and a back up generator as well.
Because the area has such regular winds on a daily basis, they have decided just to use the wind generator to keep the batteries charged up. I do not have the details and have not seen this in person yet, but hope to go out next week with Bill when he delivers the second camping cube and check it out in person. I will than fill you in with more details as far as how many batteries, watts, etc. are involved to make this off-grid system work.
If you have any questions, please post them in the comments below and I will get the details from Bill when I get together with him. Bill is in the process of developing a portable off-grid system that he will sell to tiny house individuals who want to run their homes off of the grid, so stay tuned for more information.
