During the event, Sonny powered five food stalls, including one that required significant energy for an electric pizza oven and bouncy castles, with plenty of energy to spare, demonstrating its reliability and effectiveness.

Sonny is equipped with twelve sun-tracking high-efficiency solar panels producing 4.80 kWp, is capable of producing up to 50kW of 3 phase 230/400v power, and features a high-powered 140kWh battery storage system.

For example, to serve as a rapid response power unit in emergencies, such as natural disasters causing power outages or national grid failure.

It will also enable local businesses such as food vendors, entertainment artists, shops, and trade stalls to utilise renewable power at both indoor and outdoor events and even more power hungry use cases, such as producing energy for entire festivals and building sites. 

Reliable Renewables has also integrated Sonny into Sunsynk Connect, an app that allows users to monitor how much power is being generated by their solar system.

Sonny will also have a full remotely monitored CCTV security system for on-site security benefits, remote controllable site lighting and USB phone charging lockers, particularly useful for festival applications.

Nicola Heys, Sales Director at Reliable Renewables, said: “Sonny represents a major step forward in the practical application of renewable energy, especially for local businesses. 

“We’re thrilled to provide a solution that not only supports sustainability but also empowers small businesses to operate efficiently and economically via green energy in a variety of scenarios.”

Reliable Renewables will be operating Sonny to power the entire event.
