Solar Off Grid
Off Grid Doesn’t Have to Mean Without Comfort
If you are in a rural or remote region, or on an island off the coast, then often standard grid supply is out of the question. This is where off-grid solar electricity generation is needed.
How does off-grid electricity generation work?
If you are off-grid, it means that the only power that you have to use is electricity that you generate. Solar power is the cleanest, safest option and is silent in operation with no fumes or risks to the environment.
With solar off-grid, we install an array of solar panels designed to generate sufficient power for what you want to run. Do you only want to power your fridge, computer, washing machine and pumps or do you also want to cover entertainment and heating/cooling?
You use the solar power you generate during the day, with the excess electricity is stored in banks of batteries for use at night.
Your solar electricity generation can be supplemented by wind turbines if required for additional power.
How much do off-grid electricity systems cost?
Off-grid electricity systems are not cheap. You can reduce your costs by modifying the load you draw from your system or adjusting your usage patterns.
Sunelec’s founders lived off-grid on a remote property for several years, and intimately understand the unique challenges that this can bring. This is why we are one of the most well-known designers and installers of off-grid electricity systems, as we have first-hand experience backed with decades of installation know-how.
