Tiny house builder invents trailer-mounted power plant with solar panels

In France, every summer and with increasing frequency there are devastating forest fires in the south of our country. Mediterranean forests are often the victims of flames that firefighters have to fight. But our localized fires are “nothing” compared to what Australia might experience. Think back to 2019, which lasted for months, out of control, destroying houses, injuring koalas, destroying plant and animal species. Hell for all Australians. Australia has even decided to impose a $11,000 fine on anyone who throws a cigarette butt out of their car window! More and more builders and inventors are trying to find infrastructure or materials that are resistant to these wildfires. TC Tiny is also looking for a way to counter small off-grid power plants. Presentation.

Who is TS Tiny?

TC Tiny is a small Australian company run by tom cat, specializing in the construction of fireproof tiny houses. And in Australia it’s not an “extra option”: wildfires are recurring, devastating and leave no chance to those who did not act against the current. If TC Tiny originally built small motorhomes, the founder has just added a new construction type to their catalogue: Off-grid power plant!

What is a mini power plant?

Besides these campers, Tom Coupe (TC) also made a fireproof Book Bunker, so she just added a new string to her fireproof bow: Wildfire Resistant Portable Solar Power Supply. According to the manufacturer, the Rusty Box can withstand a Wildfire Attack Level Index (BAL) of 40. In Australia, BAL is a measure of the severity of a building’s potential exposure to embers, radiant heat and direct sunlight. flame contact. Measured in increments of radiant heat (expressed in kilowatts/m2). The BAL scale ranges from 12.5 (12.5 kW/m²) to BZ (more than 40 kW/m²). Thus, the BAL 40 index is already a very high indicator, which can correspond to the orange or even red danger level in our country. (Source BushFireProne.com). The mini power plant developed by TC Tiny will also allow resist cyclones and tornadoes Category 3 on a five-point scale.

Useful invention!

Tom Coupe explains that his small power plant is not a house, but a portable power plant that can withstand forest fires and therefore holds electricity. when traditional networks were affected. He describes his invention as “a powerful yet portable device with high quality construction and design…
