One of the cool things about working at the altE Store is that we get to deal with customers all over the world. We actually have systems installed on every continent of the planet. We recently received some pictures from one of our Peruvian customers, proudly showing their new solar power system they installed themselves.
Inkaterra’s Reserva Amazonica Lodge is on the banks of the Madre de Dios river in the Amazon Basin. The only power they had came from a generator, which they were trying to limit as much as possible. Lighting in the rooms is provided by candles and kerosene lamps. As a company who prides themselves in sustainable tourism, they called us to help them become the first solar electric installation in the region. Their new off grid solar system is being used to power two refrigerators and a freezer.
altE designed a solar power system for them with four Kyocera 140W solar panels, a Morningstar solar charge controller, a Magnum off grid inverter, and six deep cycle batteries, along with all of the safety equipment like breakers and lightning arrestor. This system is connected to their generator, and will allow the generator to charge up the batteries if needed during a stretch of bad weather.
We’re proud to be able to help provide a safe, clean solar power solution in Peru.
