ALL IN ONE OFF GRID OR CUSTOM BUILT?

We have a wide range of off grid systems to suit all budgets and requirements. 

When going off grid there are some important things to consider when contemplating which product is right for your home or business. 

These key design questions you need to ask yourself are. 

1. Where is my off-grid system going to be installed. Inside or outside and do you need something that is lockable and secure or would you prefer it assembled on a wall?

2. Does the off grid system require temperature control or will it be installed in a shady well ventilated area? 

3. Will i need a system that can be built on for future expansion of the property, does the solution you pick have this future proofing in mind?

4. Do you want an off-grid system that has warranty with one manufacturer or are you looking for a system that uses a variety of components?

These are just a few key questions you should think about when considering your own power station and we are here to help guide you through. 

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE OF KW VS KWH

 

Understanding the relationship between KW and KWH requirement is a very important key part of picking the right system. 

To simplify, KW rating of the inverter within an off-grid package refers to how much instant energy you can consume at your peak draw. For example, should you want to turn on an electric oven which draws 4000w then turn on the tap which powers your water pump you could easily be at 5000w of energy draw with these two simple devices. 

The KWH [battery storage capacity] in this example would dictate how long you can run the 5000w draw for until the battery storage is empty.

 

Performing a load profile should be the first step for any off grid retailer. This will allow the off grid designer to go through all your devices in detail while recommending a system which will handle your peak loads while sustaining enough battery capacity to cover your needs with minimal to no generator input required. 

Get these steps wrong and it can be a very unpleasant experience. 

We take a very thorough approach with all of our solutions and have dedicated off grid designers ready to assist with your off grid journey. 

 

 

DESIGN YOUR SYSTEM NOW FOR TOMORROW!

When considering your own power station, you need to consider not only what you are going to draw energy wise now, but also plan for the future! 

This is often a step that is missed by designers and could be a very costly mistake for the end user. When we design a system we ask all the right questions and help guide you to the best solution to meet not only your current needs, but your future needs. 

Should you design a system to suit a budget point now however are planning on adding more electrical loads to your home or business later then it makes more financial sense to install a system that will allow you to easily build upon the equipment as your energy demands increase.

 

Installing an off-grid solution that is already at its maximum capability will end up costing you much more down the line.

Luckily! most of our systems allow you to start with smaller battery capacity or even smaller solar arrays while allowing a cost effective upgrade as you need it. 

LOOKING FOR A BACKUP GENERATOR? 

We provide a wide range of high quality and reliable diesel generators for our off grid systems. With options from Kubota through to Hyundai we are sure to have your energy needs and budget covered. Not sure which size generator you will need? feel free to reach out to us to go through your energy needs and integration requirements.
