About the Solar Pod

Add a sustainable power source and reduce your fuel costs  with the Solar Pod from Nixon Hire.

  • Do you have a remote site with no access to mains power?
  • Would you normally hire a 30-45kva generator? 
  • Are reducing Noise, Carbon emissions and Fuel costs a priority to you?

The  Solar Pod combines Solar PV, battery storage and a back up generator and a 400l fuel tank in a safe and secure self contained unit. 

The  Solar Pod is used on medium sized sites to power a site compound and as many as 5 cabins can be powered from a single Solar Pod. 

Once  connected by our trained engineers, powering the site is autonomous.  The site is powered by solar - battery -  generator or a combination of  these depending on the load demand. The Solar element will either power the site directly, or will assist by charging the battery storage.
