The ECOCAPSULE – No more electricity bills

I live in Nigeria and I don’t know if like me you are tired of having to pay electricity bills for power that was not provided. Well a Slovakia company that goes by the name Nice Architect has been working on what you can call a portable house that can generates its own electricity, It’s called an Ecocapsule. They have been working on this project for some time now and prototypes of the Ecocapsule was made public sometime in May of 2015.

The Ecocapsule featured an egg shaped mini house that would be powered entirely by solar energy, wind energy and chargeable batteries what we call inverters. The Ecocapsule is powered by a 750-watts wind turbine, coupled with a 600-watts solar energy converter, and 10 kWh capacity battery inverter (that could last at least four days, should it happen that the sun refuses to shine and there’s no wind for that long).

    Could come in very useful in large campuses or rehabilitation centers.

    But, at that price?….hmmm

      Well I can imagine that for now the target customers would be large R&D establishments who would be needing shelter when working in unique places like a dense jungle, a deserted island or even a desert. It could also serve as a status item for the very rich.
