solar PV – Wincayaren Hostal

We worked in collaboration with Jorge, from Parque Educativo Solar, to provide Wincayaren Hostal with a solution for their electricity generation. Jorge installed two solar panels on their roof, along with an inverter to provide AC electricity for the whole building. The two panels mean that that hostel’s electricity bills are zero due to surplus […]

solar hotwater – Fundo Meza

All of our hot water generation comes from combined solar hotwater systems. We always aim to have the hotwater panel installation blend in with its surroundings, for minimal visual impact, as can be seen in both photos. 80% of the year all our hotwater needs are fulfilled by the water being heated directly by the […]

solar pumping – Fundo Meza

Our solar pumping systems use a combination of solar PV panels, Dankoff SlowPumps, and gravity (storage tanks higher up) to provide all our water needs. We also now use a wind mill to draw water up out of a well as an additional water source. At Fundo Meza whenever possible we use these two design […]

solar hotwater

We provide passive solar hotwater systems – they do not have any pumps – which allows a simple, almost maintenance free hotwater system. These panels will provide hotwater needs 80% of the time (depending on location) hence this system is easily integrated with other heating sources to guarantee access to hot water all the time. […]

solar pumping

We offer the full range of Dankoff Solar Pumps to be used in a wide variety of applications. All installations incorporate solar panels, a solar pump and a controller with other details varying depending on the specific situation. The pdf shows a simple diagram illustrating one use of this technology. We are committed to providing appropriate […]

solar PV

We provide both on-grid and off-grid solar PV solutions. Off-grid solutions are aimed at locations where users are independent of the grid – they involve solar PV panels with batteries for storing energy plus a generator to provide back up energy when needed. On-grid solutions provide the capability to sell back excess energy generated through […]

tech & tools for smaller-scale farms

solar The use of energy is a major concern and we are continually looking to minimize our consumption.  The buildings we have designed are passive solar and also use passive solar hot water panels.  We are installing solar PV panels for solar pumping of water and powering the electrical needs of our new processing building.
