Broughton Archipelago

“We are only too happy to recommend Small Planet Energy. Small Planet Energy designed and installed our solar system in early 2017. Our cabin is a float house situated in the Broughton Archipelago near Echo Bay. Their work is outstanding we could not be more pleased with our system. The Small Planet team is a pleasure to work with and gives much thought to be sure the customer will be satisfied with the results of their work.” ~ Rick, Broughton Archipelago

Objective

Help update an aging and underperforming system to facilitate comfortable living using clean energy from the sun while drastically reducing the need for generator use in this remote float house.

The Solution

We designed a battery-based system with 4.4kw of solar, that will virtually eliminate the need for generator use, even in the winter. Equipment was transported by barge to the remote site and the Small Planet team came in by boat to complete the installation. Although the roof is facing west the solar window is excellent with the afternoon sun until sunset, year-round.
