URL More about Polebridge Mercantile & Cabins
SIMPLIPHI POWER Polebridge Mercantile & Cabins is located 45 miles from the Utility Grid, on the western edge of Glacier National Park and has used a diesel-powered generator to provide power since the 1950’s. The constant rumble of the generator was an unwelcome addition to the majestic beauty of this unique wilderness location. A small 5kW solar power system with a large 48 volt flooded lead acid battery bank was installed in 2010, but proved too inadequate to meet load requirements and suffered from repeated deep cycle discharging. An additional 25kW of solar power were added along with SimpliPhi’s 3.4 kWh 48 Volt batteries to store power for overnight loads. The generator no longer runs continuously and guests may now enjoy the peace and silence of this remote natural paradise. Twelve 48V SimpliPhi Power PHI 3.4 kWh LFP batteries are arranged in parallel to increase capacity. If the mercantile’s electrical loads increase over time, the SimpliPhi batteries easily scale, due to their compact, efficient size and weight to increase power output and capacity.
