The Ark by Disconnected Energy is a personal energy generator designed to offer off-grid power to everyone, all you need is a place to site the included solar panels and the rest is plug and play, no need for electrical knowledge just follow the guide included and you'll have mains power generated by the sun all year round, specifically built for the UK climate.

This version of the Ark is a little different. Whilst it remains off-grid there are some aspects that will require professional installation. Here’s an example of a typical one bed 'tiny' house. It’s assumed that most things will be turned off at night, no electrical heating (disconnected energy are working on a diesel powered heating system which will be available soon) and the average power usage is 3 - 4kWh a day.

  • The solar panels are chosen to run the Ark all year round so in the summer they will probably generate more energy than you can use which is why air con becomes a possibility.
  • Running from your own power source means your house will be immune to power cuts giving you an extremely high-power uninterruptable power supply (UPS).
  • The cost of connecting to the grid by a professional can be considerable for a pop-up style house. The Ark eliminates the need for that installation.
  • Long spells of thick winter cloud cover may require some energy conservation on the users part. 
  • Gas or oil hot water/heating is assumed.
