Fire Lookout Powered by Solar
How Solar Works
The solar panels installed on the roof capture sunlight and generate electricity. The battery bank stores the energy generated by the panels. Then, an inverter converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into AC electricity that can be used to power communications equipment, lights and fans, or charge handheld devices and laptops.
Solar requires very little maintenance. Once the system is set up, it will continue to generate electricity as long as there is sunlight. This makes it an ideal solution for remote areas.
Adding solar power is a practical and sustainable solution for powering fire lookouts. It improves operational efficacy and helps to protect the environment from the negative impacts of fossil fuel-based energy sources. By generating electricity from sunlight, fire lookouts can ensure a reliable source of power that is clean, renewable, and requires very little maintenance.
