Offgridding UK grew from a desire to use the sun's energy to turn collected rainwater into drinking water at a remote Northumberland beach house in order to become self-sufficient.

Harnessing The Sun And The Rain

Harvesting rainfall before it hits the ground makes perfect sense. UK households are increasingly adapting their rooftops to capture the sun's energy, especially so in rural and off-grid settings. Only some of this energy could provide the heartbeat of a rainfall harvesting solution from the same roof.

We struggled to find a UK company with adequate knowledge of rainwater harvesting systems who were keen to help, so we ended up doing it ourselves. We carefully sourced best-in-class components from around Europe & Australasia and combined our knowledge of marine engineering and PV solar..
