The increase in demand for quality dome shelters could also be attributed to the growing trend of using solar energy along with storage units. Just like any other structure on the farm, storage or shelters would also require the use of electricity. Diesel generators of old, however, tend to be costly. Fortunately today, solar energy is becoming more and more accessible, thanks to the growing consumer demand. It has become so popular, in fact, that some storage providers like Container Domes Australia are now offering solar kits and back-up generators as add-ons to their storage units. With energy available in the dome shelters, CCTV cameras, lighting, and equipment can all be installed to further ensure the safety of its contents. Farmers nowadays are a lot more eager to learn and apply modern technology to their farming methods. The goal of course of every farmer is to earn more, and modern methods will allow them to do so.

The utilization of solar energy is still considered to be in its early stages and there are still a lot of research that needs to be done on this. For example, some container shed providers like Container Domes Australia now offer add-ons that will upgrade your basic storage into multi-functional spaces that is both safe and comfortable. Some make use of solar panels that capture energy for powering lights, CCTV units, and computers. With these add-ons, a regular storage space can easily be converted into an additional working space, such as an office or a resting lounge for workers, among other possible functions. Uses like these are just the tip of the iceberg. It is estimated that installing a solar power plant in a mine in Australia could save 600,000 gallons of diesel. This means substantial cost savings, with an unlimited energy source.

Farming is serious business, and when you are hard at work out in the fields, you will often need a place to store your hard-grown produce or your equipment in. A container dome system can emerge as an amenable storage and shelter solution, although not without trial and error. A farming couple from Western Australia learned that the hard way when a dome system they set up on their own for their farm goats flipped over amidst strong winds, a post in the Farmers Way of Life blog read. They obviously decided that the cheapest option was the best option, which obviously didn’t turn out to be the case. The above can be of some concern for farmers anywhere in Australia, especially when storage space is at a premium. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that private grain stocks in the country’s eastern farms are expected to grow by up to 50% within the next few years.

If you’ve just taken up flying as a hobby and have decided to invest in a private aeroplane and a piece of land for constructing an airstrip and hangar, it would be good to know that this wouldn’t be a problem. Current airstrips are either grass, dirt, or concrete, some of which are being used as emergency fields by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. If you need a suitable aircraft hangar, you could use a sturdy container dome manufactured by companies like Container Domes Australia to store the aeroplane away and protect it from the elements. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you set up a hangar.
