Firefly Solar’s new Cygnus Hybrid Power Generator (HPG) promises to cut diesel consumption at events by as much as 30 per cent.
Connecting to traditional generators, the HPG manages base loads using power from its batteries before automatically switching to diesel as power requirements increase, cutting the cost and environmental footprint of off-grid power generation.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the 12-24 kVA Cygnus HPG is compatible with all diesel generators and can be used to provide primary, standalone, standby or emergency power. It can produce clean, renewable electricity by integrating with solar PV and wind turbines, as well as connecting to the mains grid.
“Traditional diesel generators have long been the natural choice for temporary and remote power, but as with the introduction of hybrid fuel systems in cars, our technology will deliver improved efficiency, fuel savings and a reduced carbon footprint,” Andy Mead, founder and CEO at Firefly Solar, said.
