The Sun Factory supplied and installed an autonomous solar system for the office of ‘Natuurmonumenten’ on the bird island of Griend in The Netherlands. The solar panels have been mounted on a sloped roof, which is on the right angle for maximum energy output. Via 12 V controllers the maintenance free Gel batteries are charged in four steps to optimize battery life. Pure sine wave inverters assure the researchers working on the island to have enough power needed for their computers, research equipment and basic energy consumption. The installation of the house itself including the heavy batteries has been done onshore, before shipment to the Island by a boat. Further installation has been performed on the island after the house was placed on site.
