Hi Wade, everyone.
I converted a 10x30ft shipping container for our solar powered
workshop. Everything we create is open source, not had time/capacity to
get the build online yet but happy to share how we built it/photos/etc.
Essentially I built a timber frame inside with rockwool insulation, clad
this with 18mm ply (9mm is adequate but I had to work with what I could
get), fitted 6 x 250W solar panels on the roof and built a power unit
incorporating an isolator switch, leading to a Victron Energy charge
controlled to feed 2 x 100Ah Lead Crystal batteries in a vented secure
workbench. All workbenches, toolboards built from same materials,
surfaces on the main benches 3mm aluminium sheeting, dibond on two
[upcycled building hoardings]. All lighting is LED and 12V, I fitted an
inverter to power laptop, oscilloscope (to check not std eBike PAS units
etc), charge drills and run our soldering station.
