WHY CHOOSE AN OFF-GRID SOLAR SOLUTION?
Ideal for rural or remote locations, an off-grid solar system is completely independent of the main utility grid.
Custom designed to meet site-specific energy needs, off the grid systems use batteries as back-up to ensure a continuous electricity supply.
Off-grid solar systems utilise batteries to store electricity for use at night or on low sunshine days. These batteries are custom-designed to meet your specific energy requirements and ensure reliable and consistent energy supply.
It is important that your off-grid system is sized correctly to compensate for the variation in sunshine hours. Power Technology has more than 10 years’ experience designing and supplying off-grid systems for both residential and commercial use. We will guide you through the process to ensure your energy supply is reliable at all times.
As well as batteries, off-grid systems also require an off-grid inverter, charge controller and backup generator. Power Technology provides two options for off-grid systems: Direct Current (DC) coupled or Alternating Current (AC) coupled.
An AC coupled system uses an extra grid-connect inverter to supply the site’s load before charging the batteries for later use. A DC coupled system directs all the power generated by the photovoltaic panels to the batteries. Power is then drawn from the batteries via a single inverter.
Common concerns over off-grid systems are usually around the longevity of the battery bank. Working with our design and engineering team, you can ensure your system is designed accurately and can confidently expect your off-grid solar system to last 15 years or more.
