Outreach - Construction International - Think sustainable. Think solar

c4AzjaOIn an era where sustainability has become a pressing global concern, innovative solutions are constantly emerging to address environmental challenges. Garic has developed eco-friendly versions of its ever-popular welfare vans and units.

By doing so, they provide a practical solution to promote green practices on-site. By integrating solar power into their welfare facilities, Garic can unlock a range of benefits for the environment and the people who rely on these facilities.

Harnessing the Power of the Sun 

Solar power plays an important role when it comes to sustainability in relation to welfare vans and units. By harnessing the energy of the sun, these units can operate independently from traditional energy sources, reducing their reliance on non-renewable fuels and minimising carbon emissions.

Solar panels installed on the roof of Garic’s vans or units absorb sunlight and convert it into usable electricity, powering the appliances and facilities within.

The main advantage of opting for solar-powered welfare facilities is the environmental benefits it brings. By utilising solar power, these units significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, and reliance on fossil fuels.

The transition to renewable energy sources helps combat climate change and promotes a cleaner, healthier environment. Garic offers a towable Armadillo XL+ Eco 4.0  welfare cabin that reduces emissions by up to 80% and is the perfect sustainable welfare option for up to 10 people.

Cost efficiency is another major benefit. Solar power provides a long-term cost advantage, as it eliminates or reduces the need for traditional energy sources. Once the initial investment in solar panels is made, the operational costs of these units decrease, making them economically viable and sustainable in the long run.

 DSC0197Flexibility and Mobility is always an advantage when it comes to solar-powered welfare facilities. These units can be easily transported to different locations, providing eco-conscious welfare facilities on the go, ensuring that sustainability and welfare go hand in hand, regardless of the location. And with their Hybrid welfare van offering, mobility is even easier! Find out more about the Garic hybrid welfare van here.

Along with the many benefits going solar can bring, reliability is up there at the top of the list. Solar power systems are known for their reliability as even in the event of power outages or natural disasters, solar-powered welfare facilities can continue to operate independently, providing essential services and support regardless of outside factors.

Eco-Friendly Features 

Garic’s commitment to sustainability goes way beyond solar power, incorporating a range of eco-friendly features in their vans and units where possible. These include energy-efficient appliances, eco-flush WCs, and sustainable materials for construction - Some of their eco offerings such as the Combi Cabin Eco 1.5 are developed from a refurbished, older cabin! LED lighting and smart energy management systems further optimise energy consumption, ensuring minimal environmental impact.
