Arista’s Mobile Renewable Power Station (MRPS) utilizes power from two renewable energy sources: solar and wind. These two energy sources are often complementary and thus provide a more consistent flow of renewable energy. While the solar PV panels provide power during peak usage hours, wind can provide power throughout the day, and is often strongest when solar energy is not available.
In addition to solar and wind, the MRPS utilizes a third critical component – energy storage. Energy storage allows the flexibility to use the generated power when needed, rather than only when it is being created. The MRPS converts solar and wind power to energy through their respective chargers and the energy is then stored in a battery bank that are designed for extended cycle life, high capacity, environmentally capable and reasonable cost. Through a power inverter, the stored energy is distributed through a circuit breaker panel and can be distributed in a variety of voltages (AC and DC) and connections.
Arista’s MRPS provides renewable technology with a clear cost advantage over traditional fossil fuel powered generators. It reduces the carbon emissions into the environment and makes power portable, which can be crucial for a number of applications, including:
- Military use where grid power is unavailable or undesirable
- Emergency power during natural disasters
- Construction sites, cellular towers, and other off-grid locations
- Used to provide clean water, communications and a foundation emerging infrastructure in underdeveloped countries
The Arista MRPS enables power where no infrastructure is currently in place, resulting in large savings and providing power for essential needs in remote locations that were previously considered uninhabitable. The development of the MRPS and its continual evolution provides a cost-effective, renewable energy solution that is not only portable, but adaptable and reliable.
