Off-Grid Eco Resort – Taft Gardens
SIMPLIPHI POWER provides reliable, non-toxic and uninterrupted off-grid energy storage and management for the Taft Botanical Gardens at the Conservation Endowment Fund located in Ojai, California. Because of SimpliPhi’s modular and scalable power storage solution, the 20.8 kWh system that was initially installed in 2013 could be increased in 2015 to 41.6 kWh to satisfy increasing electrical loads and expanding operations.
The challenge was to design an off-grid hybrid power solution that would dramatically reduce generator use and fuel consumption, eliminate trenching transmission lines and utilize non-toxic, non-hazardous, heat-resistant and enduring energy storage. SimpliPhi Power storage easily met all of these requirements. Without energy storage, renewable sources of power are intermittent and unpredictable. SimpliPhi technology creates power security and resilience by taking the intermittency out of any power generation source including wind, solar, grid and fuel-based generators.
