Startup to invent a Portable Solar-and-Wind Powered Home
Ecocapsule is a portable home purely powered by conventional energy sources. It is easy to move and has amenities of modern housing.
A Slovakia-based startup created Ecocapsule, a tiny 70-square-foot mobile home of which the power is driven by wind and solar energy. Costing around $90,000 plus shipping charges, it is capable of generating 1.35 kilowatts of extensive power using a wind turbine and solar panels fitted on the roof. This smart home features sensors and a rechargeable battery with a life-span of seven long years. Moreover, Ecocapsule also stores water while it is raining and later, filters to reuse.
Ecocapsule offers you an all-together self-sufficient and practical living experience. Since it makes use of wind and solar energy, the home becomes eco-friendly to reside in. It weighs 1.1 ton and is fabricated from insulated steel and aluminum, accompanied by fiberglass shell.
The moveable Ecocapsule lets you benefit from solar power whether you are in a place familiar with solar panels like Cary, NC, or a less sunny spot with few solar installers.
This compact home consists of a small stove, toilet and shower, and a foldable bed and table on the other side. Nevertheless, the capsule’s wooden interiors can be customized for various uses. Ecocapsule promotes the concept of eco-life that encourages you to go for off-grid living under specific situations.
In order to boost the production, the company has raised funds of $1 million recently.
