This stand-alone hybrid system is configured to power the ranger station with a battery bank. Although the array of photovoltaic panels serves as the primary power source for charging the batteries, the charge controller has an automatic transfer switch to automatically start the diesel generator when supplemental power is needed. This type of system offers redundancy for a reliable stand-alone power system ideally suited for a remote island.
