We are Solar-bucket

Built for small scale farming. The solar-bucket is a portable solar powered unit you can use for a variety of farm tasks. Better results, less work.

Get solar powered technology for your farm. The solar-bucket is a perfect way to learn about renewable energy. It’s super simple, easy to work on and trouble shoot. Plug in different tools that are equally easy to use.

We’ve learned so much about solar energy and growing food with the solar bucket that we promise in 3 months you will learn how to save thousands of dollars on larger systems. Yup, thousands of dollars.

How to make a solar bucket using scrap

Featured Case Studies

Industry Experience

We had challenges as organic farmers, this is what we figured out. We think it can help a lot of other farmers and gardeners.

Great Team

We were engineers in past lives before farming. We have used our local contacts to get us a great deal on parts and manufacturing.

Designed for Re-use

We want to make it easy to replace any part that breaks (recycling or repairing as needed). You could be using one of these in twenty years.

Multiple Tools

Water pumps, electric energizers, worklights and regular light bulbs. Plus more to come.

Become Independent

Renewable distributed energy is the way forward. Bring energy resilience to your food growing.

Why Work with the Solar-Bucket?

5 Values of Solar-Bucket

Because we are there with you in the hot sun or cold morning. Because we think  technologies that match the principles of growing organic & permaculture are important and needed. Food sovereignty also needs energy sovereignty and we are having fun learning how to accomplish both. Together we can make the solar-bucket more affordable, reliable and useful for growing food and saving the farmer time.
