Solar & Wind Power
Living on Free Energy from the Sun and Wind
Insulated, Aluminum Solar-Electric Power Generation
Substantial, Fully Integrated, Solar-Electric System
Includes added support from our fresh, off-shore island winds
...quietly generating additional free
power during the darkness of night-times,
and during any daytime hours when Maui tradewinds are plentiful.
The electric-generation system for the property is nicely
housed inside a spacious
insulated, Aluminum Power Generation Shed, equipped with good lighting, fans and ventilation.
Fully sealed and securable with double doors.
This allows for efficient, extremely quiet
operation, and convenient access
to panels, inverters and the diesel generator, if ever needed.
While there is rarely a need to go inside the generator shed,
everything is arranged
for easy access, and there is underground electrical wiring up to the house.
This connects with a nice digital display/control panel, and allows for easy
monitoring and controlling the generator with a single switch,
located inside the comfort of the house.
Here are some of the
excellent components that are installed
inside the Power Generation Shed:
Green-Power, fully-integrated, electrical system includes state-of-the-art
