Why you need an EcoFlow Delta Pro for your Off-Grid Tiny Home

by Saxon Funk March 23, 2023 8 min read

As the world moves towards sustainable living, off-grid homes and tiny houses are becoming increasingly popular. These eco-friendly homes utilize renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind turbines to provide electricity, minimizing their environmental impact. One of the essential tools for constructing and maintaining such a dwelling is the EcoFlow Delta Pro, a portable power station that has revolutionized the world of portable generators.


EcoFlow Delta Pro is the Gold Standard in Portable Power technology

EcoFlow Delta Pro Off-Grid living

EcoFlow Generators have long been the gold standard in portable power technology. The brand-new LFP battery in the EcoFlow Delta Pro is a game-changer in terms of capacity and efficiency. Boasting a 3.6kWh capacity, it offers unprecedented power security for builders working on off-grid projects.


The EcoFlow Delta Pro is the world's first portable home battery that can double as an EV station, making it the complete power solution for builders, outdoor enthusiasts, and off-grid homeowners alike. Its smart energy management system ensures uninterrupted power supply, even when a power outage hits or when working on remote projects.


A Single EcoFlow Delta Pro unit can power a wide range of power tools and heavy-duty appliances. The AC output, with its double voltage hub, allows for regular use of devices with up to 3600W, while the innovative X-Boost technology enables the Delta Pro to support devices up to 4500W. When you pair two EcoFlow Delta Pro's together, you will increase from 3600W to 7200W! You can also add on the EcoFlow Delta Pro extra batteries which will provide a maximum of 25kW.

EcoFlow App

Using the EcoFlow app, you can monitor and control the Delta Pro remotely. The app offers a ton of customization options, including adjusting power settings, monitoring energy usage, and setting time-of-use rates. It even allows for remote control of the unit's firmware section and discharging levels, ensuring a secure power source with less energy loss.


Harnessing the Power of the Sun & Wind

EcoFlow Delta Pro Solar Panel

Solar energy is a critical component of off-grid living, and the EcoFlow Delta Pro ecosystem supports solar charging with its smart maximum power point tracking system. With a wide voltage range and compatibility with solar panels up to 1600W, the portable generator ensures faster charging and higher efficiency than traditional gas generators.


In addition to solar power, the Delta Pro sports an Anderson port for connecting to wind turbines, offering an alternative energy source for off-grid homes. For those who prefer a more conventional charging method, the standard AC wall outlet and EcoFlow's X-Stream technology provide record-breaking AC charge speeds, fully charging the unit in as little as two hours.

Peace of Mind knowing you are safe

The unique protection mechanism in EcoFlow's battery management system ensures that the Delta Pro operates safely even at a low level of charge.

You can also use your EcoFlow Delta Pro (and any other solar generator, for that matter) inside your tiny house without any harmful CO2 emissions, unlike a standard gas generator.


Power on the Go

One of the many wonderful things about living in an off-grid tiny house is that you can take your house with you anywhere you go, so having a power supply that can come along for the ride is vital. The EcoFlow Delta Pro is compact and portable, with wheels and a handle to easily be transported from place to place. Your solar panels can be folded up and stored while traveling, or you can permanently mount them.


Run your Off-Grid Tiny Home with a Transfer Switch

In an off-grid home, the EcoFlow Delta Pro can be used as a primary or backup power source, working in tandem with a transfer switch to manage the distribution of power between multiple energy sources, such as solar panels or wind turbines.

Here's an explanation of how the EcoFlow Delta Pro works with a transfer switch in an off-grid home:

  1. Installation: A qualified electrician should install a transfer switch in the off-grid home's electrical system. This typically involves connecting the transfer switch to the home's main electrical panel and wiring it to the circuits you want to power with the EcoFlow Delta Pro or other energy sources.
  2. Connection: Connect the EcoFlow Delta Pro to the transfer switch using the appropriate cables and outlets. The Delta Pro features AC output ports, which can be used to connect to the transfer switch.
  3. Alternative Energy Sources: In an off-grid home, you may have other energy sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, or other generators. Connect these energy sources to the transfer switch as well.
  4. Power Management: The transfer switch will manage the distribution of power between the EcoFlow Delta Pro and other energy sources. For example, if the solar panels are generating sufficient power, the transfer switch can prioritize solar power for your home's needs. If the solar panels aren't producing enough power or during the night, the transfer switch can switch to the EcoFlow Delta Pro to provide the required energy.
  5. Monitoring: You can monitor the EcoFlow Delta Pro's power usage, battery capacity, and charging status using the EcoFlow app. This will help you manage your energy consumption and ensure the Delta Pro is operating efficiently.
  6. Charging: In an off-grid setup, the EcoFlow Delta Pro can be charged using solar panels (up to 1600W) or wind turbines connected to the Anderson port. This will allow the Delta Pro to replenish its battery capacity when not in use, ensuring a continuous supply of power when needed.
  7. Reconnection: If you want to switch between the EcoFlow Delta Pro and another energy source, manually switch the transfer switch to the desired power source. This enables seamless power management between different energy sources in an off-grid home.

Keep in mind that using the EcoFlow Delta Pro with a transfer switch should be done in compliance with local electrical codes and regulations. Consult a qualified electrician to ensure a safe and proper installation.
