The Tiny House Movement has become a phenomenon across the United States in recent years. Driving this movement is the consumers’ desire for greater financial freedom, cleaner energy, increased independence and a healthier, sustainable lifestyle. As homeowners transition from purchasing large, expensive American homes they are embracing the idea of purchasing tiny houses, which are under 500 square feet, often arranged in a community of like properties that support and engage a greater quality of life through simplicity, independence and resiliency.
Adara Power partnered with The Arc House – presented by Green Builder Media and Shelter Dynamics – this June to install an 8.6 kWh lithium-ion Adara Energy Storage System coupled with 10 solar panels in the factory-built 432 square foot residence that combines the economy and simplicity of tiny house l
iving with cutting-edge building science. The installation ran off-grid in downtown San Francisco while displayed at the Pacific Coast Builder Conference from June 22-23, 2016. It will be displayed in future events, including Solar Power International from September 12-15 in Las Vegas.
“The unmet challenge in the tiny home movement is finding a place to put them. Once homeowners start working with governmental and utility companies, the concept of freedom can evaporate very quickly,” stated Jim Gregory, CEO of Shelter Dynamics. “This is why we love the Adara Energy Storage System. With solar and energy storage, tiny houses can go almost anywhere. We plan on a long term partnership with Adara’s incredible team. I could not recommend them highly enough.”
