New Off-Grid Systems

Off-Grid Systems

Being Off-Grid is not a simple decision unless you just have no other choice. Many of our customers start by thinking it is the right thing to do but then eventually realise that paying the expensive electrical connection fee is the better option.

If you have to be Off-Grid due to a very remote location or the Power Company wants a small fortune to connect you to the local grid then there is a series of things to consider to help you decide.

Latest Off-Grid Case Study

This was an unusual case where an existing undersized, failing 8 year old Off-Grid system with 18kwh Lead acid batteries, existing 6kw Proven wind turbine, 4kw PV tracker and16kw generator. All needed rethinking and upgrading. With an average daily 20kwh load and failing lead acid batteries the diesel generator was costing a small fortune to run.
