My name is Bruno Enzler. I live in the Netherlands and I have a question about independent energy.
First of all thank you for your website information. I’m reading through it.
I’m trying to figure out if I can start a business in Solar Energy and a lot of ideas go through my mind.
One of these ideas I would like to ask you about.
Is it possible to provide a bungalow recreation park or a similar location with solar panels on the roofs of the bungalows and to centralize the energy to a powerhouse or a large battery bank in order to make the park independent from a energy company?
If I need to make my question clearer please let me know.
Thank you so much for your reply.
Best regards and best wishes for 2009.
There have been many successful off-grid solar powered rental units on islands and in areas without grid power, with each unit having its own solar system. There have also been central systems with one large solar array and battery bank used to supply separate cottages surrounding this central system. It really comes down to cost if this is worth doing as the equipment is easily available.
Unless you are in a very unusual location, if you can easily connect to the power grid its very hard to justify the high cost in a rental type application.
Good luck with your venture!
