High Capacity Power Trailer
This trailer uses 1.5 kW of solar and a 1.5 kW wind machine to provide DC and AC supply for more demanding portable power applications. The unit was designed for a mining client to operate pumping equipment lifting water to the surface from depths of over 600 feet without grid-power. A tilt up tower design allows the wind machine to be lowered and secured for transport.
