Lambert Lake, Lasqueti Island

Jarek and his team at Small Planet Energy were recommended to us by a neighbour, and we have no regrets about selecting them for our off-grid power project. Small Planet Energy was responsive and helpful through all stages of the project — initial scoping, documentation and drawings approval, procurement, assembly, installation, commissioning and hand-off. The quality of their work was excellent, with the final system matching the original drawings and exceeding expectations.~ David, Lambert Lake

Objective

Lambert Lake is located on Lasqueti Island which is unique from other Gulf Islands in that there is no car ferry service and no electrical power service. The plan was to build a mini-grid system spanning fifteen acres, while keeping costs as low as possible.

The Solution

To save time and money, the heart of this SMA mini-grid system including the battery bank was assembled in a shipping container at Small Planet headquarters.  The container was then moved to the installation site by crane, truck and barge. Once placed, it was inter-connected with multiple buildings and a 5.6kw solar array, by means of underground cables.
