Customized 20' power container.

A long-term customer of ours requested a custom installation inside a 20' shipping container. This site was the very first field installation of Xantrex's new XW series inverter. Energy Alternatives has been involved with the development of this new inverter since it's inception.

A standard 20 shipping container was customized with paint, windows, side entrance door, insulated interior and an internal bulkhead to separate batteries from electronics. Container supplied by Cratex Container Sales of Delta, BC.
