Eco Depot USA's most popular system is the Sol Shed. The Sol Shed is a self contained Solar Electric generating station that revolutionizes the way PV solar systems are constructed.

 

The biggest advantage of the Sol Shed is all electrical components are out of your house.

 

 

The PV panels mount directly on the roof with roof mounts which are easily adjusted. The inverter and batteries (if required) are all self contained within Eco Depot USA's Sol Shed. A DC exhaust fan and lights are mounted inside and a generator can also be installed if required.

The Sol Shed can be Located in the Ideal Location

The Sol Shed is a self contained super insulated shed that is built on Treated skids and requires no foundation. It can be moved and transported and is very modular. The shed can be located out of sight in the Ideal location and we just run regular service wire to your house.

The Eco Depot USA Sol Shed is a prepackaged self contained power system. It comes with everything you need built-in and it is assembled on skids so it can be moved easily or it can be permanently bolted to piers or a foundation.

The Sol shed is constructed of structurally insulated panels (SIPS). This gives a tight and insulated building that houses the electronics and or batteries components of your renewable energy system. We originally came up with the concept so we could drop a self contained power system on site to use to build a home with.

Three Major Advantages

The Sol Shed's biggest advantage is that there are no components within or on the existing home. By containing the components together in a small area we can reduce wiring and labor costs by building them off site in our warehouse. We then ship them out either fully built and ready to wire into the building or broken down into pallets ready to assemble within a day.

Another major advantage of this Sol shed is that you have use of the entire interior space for your storage needs. You get solar and storage all in one unit.

One other advantage of the Sol Shed is that it could be moved to a new location on site or loaded up and taken with you when you move.

The Sol Shed requires clear access to the southern sky. Therefore if the site is heavily treed or there are buildings blocking your southern exposure we would not recommend the Sol Shed. The other option would be to install a pole mount array at the proper height.

 

We currently offer three different versions of the Sol Shed

 

The shed comes in two sizes. One is a 6’x 8’ footprint with 120 square feet of roof space. The second larger shed is 8’ x 12’ footprint with approximately 200 square feet of roof space.Grid Intertie, Off grid with Battery Backup and Thermal

The Shed comes in three sizes. One is a 6'x8' footprint with 120 Sq. Ft. of roof space. The second larger shed is 8’ x 12’ footprint with approximately 200 Sq. Ft. of roof space. We also offer a 12 x 16 Sol Shed that has 192 Sq. Ft. footprint that can function as a workshop. It has a stepped roof and North facing upper windows for diffused lighting. Doors can be customized however you wish.

Grid Intertie version 1.6

It essentially contains a grid intertie inverter inside with all code approved disconnect devices as well as monitoring equipment. The solar electric panels are mounted to the roof at the appropriate angle to meet you energy needs.

The Panels can be seasonally adjustable if you want to get the maximum output out of you solar array. We can mount up to eight 175watt to 200 watt solar panels on the roof for a solar output of up to 1.6 kilowatts.  

We can always customize a shed or add a separate pole mount if you have expanding energy needs.

Due to variations in market prices prices are subject to change.

Off Grid Sol Shed Version 2.0

These are the same sheds as listed above with the exception that they contain all the additional components for off grid power. The advantage is that this shed can be located on your property to provide power to build a new structure or can be placed near an existing building and all that has to be done is run service wire from the shed to the electrical service panel.

We also have a grid intertie with battery backup system that will offset your electrical bill as well as provide power in the event of a local power outage. This includes a battery box with sealed or lead acid solar storage batteries, charge controllers, a different inverter that manages and charges the batteries and if you wish, a gas fired generator as well as any disconnects. Because of the space taken by these additional items the extra storage capacity of the shed is reduced.

Thermal Sol Shed Version 3.0

This is a Solar thermal version of the above sheds. It incorporates two 4’ x 8’ solar thermal panels on the roof of the shed with the 80-120 gallon solar storage tank inside as well as all solar pump controls, piping and components.

This system can provide 50 to 75 percent of your domestic hot water needs. All you have to do once the shed is set on your property is to run insulated water lines to your existing hot water system and you are preheating your hot water with the sun!
