112. The Octopod: A unique off-grid solar powered cottage made out of shipping containers

Shipping container architecture has become more and more popular over the years. We check out an off-grid solar powered Sea Container cabin called the Octopod located near Bobcaygeon, Ontario. The Octagonal design is unique, but the real innovation is in the design of the systems in this off-grid seasonal home. A very small 1 kilowatt solar system is split between DC and AC to maximize efficiency. See photos, blog and CKUA podcast: http://www.greenenergyfutures.ca/episode/sea-container-cabin-cottage-country
