Solar Pod

Furthering our commitment to green energy solutions, PAL Hire is pleased to introduce we’re now offering our environmentally friendly clients the Solar Pod.

Combining Solar PV, Battery Storage, a backup generator, and a 400 litre fuel tank in a safe and secure self-contained unit, the Solar Pod is the latest development in a long line of products designed to reduce emissions produced by construction sites.

You can hire the pod to reduce noise and carbon emissions on-site, as well as significantly reducing fuel costs.
