Site Considerations:

  • Ships as a fully assembled unit
  • The Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ is ideally delivered by tilt-bed trailer. The delivery truck must be able to access and back into the actual location where the container will rest.  Once the unit is in place, special equipment will be needed to move it to another location.
  • Solar panels must face due south for locations above the equator, due north for locations below the equator.  Contact your Aldelano Sales Rep for specific space requirements and location considerations.
