If the goal is to build a completely energy independent house, then to turn for the sun on the principle of sunflowerr in order to use its energy throughout the light day for its full functioning, suited perfectly for developing the concept of a energy independent house. In him, the heating system and the functioning of other household systems are completely based on the energy of the sun and wind. It is the rotation of this house around its axis that ensures maximum absorption of solar and wind energy for further processing.
The housing on wheels looks like a 7.8 m long container (7.8m length x 2.8m width x 2.5m high), arrives at the installation site by towing and can be installed by even one person in half an hour. The house consists of a living room, two bedrooms, a sanitary zone and a veranda equipped for a full rest.
The movable base allows the structure to rotate around its axis for the sun, performing commands of special sensors.
The principle of collecting solar energy is the most advanced in the world. It consists in the fact that simultaneously there are three “energy absorption and transmission centers”: a parabolic folding mirror measuring 6 square meters “serves” the heating of water for all needs, household appliances are provided with an electric current generated by a 500 W solar panel, and the quality of lighting and the heating of the room are regulated by the throughput of the petal system of the slightly shaded windows.
The retractable mast of the wind generator is an additional source of stored energy for useful use in various situations. There is even a prototype of an autonomous rainwater harvesting and purification system.
With all the attractiveness of the sCarabane concept, its developers are aware of the fact that the implementation of this project is possible in a limited part of the climatic zones of the Earth. But if there is a concept, you can expect a lot of different bold developments on its basis.
