DOC Powell Hut –
Off Grid Solar Installation

Off Grid Solar Installation – Powell Hut

The Department of Conservation have recently rebuilt Powell Hut, the most popular hut in Tararua Forest Park, with over 3000 bed nights per year, and offers spectacular views of the Tararua foothills and Wairarapa.

The rebuilt hut is sturdier, with more privacy, and has two rooms of 10 bunks and two rooms of six bunks. It also features an expanded deck to take in the amazing vistas, with stunning views of the sunrise.

Tired and weary trampers will be able to relax and enjoy the modern and warm Powell Hut with it’s gas hobs and wood burner and power provided by an Off Grid solar installation.

The Power Station off-grid solar system, installed by SolarKing provides backup power for lighting, fire alarm and emergency radio charging plus the ability for trampers to charge their phones etc. Installation at an altitude of 1200 metres went smoothly, with SolarKing’s install crew, panels and racking flown in by helicopter.
