In July of 2014, we received an enquiry from a Buddhist Forest Monastery, in Omkoi district. Deep, and remote, it resided at the border of Chiangmai, Thailand, with Myanmar. This particular monastery is located high in the mountains and deep in the forest. Being remote and far from civilization, it was no wonder that it is completely off-grid and dependent on solar energy.
Mr. Kittisobhano, a volunteer there sought our help for a cost-effective, solar setup by using used automotive batteries and with the Infinitum Desulfators to optimize the life span and performance of the batteries.
Specifications to the battery bank used:
- 6 sets of two 12V 100Ah or 200Ah batteries in series
- Each set is connected to 1 Solar charge controller.
