The Power House holds the generators and electric wiring for the Steger Wilderness Center, but there is also a specific room designated for the BAE industrial batteries from Germany. The separate room is necessary because the batteries produce gas fumes and excessive heat requiring the room to be well vented, but also well insulated which will make it easier to heat in the winter. There are two types of BAE batteries: one rack contains 24 gel batteries and the second rack contains 24 flood lead acid batteries. Each individual battery cell is 2.1 volts and the whole unit is 48-volt DC Nom system. These batteries can only hold a fraction of solar energy that the panel array produces.
