Get off grid.

The concept of getting off grid is very real. Having to take all factors into consideration, like occasional heavy power draws or inclement weather can be costly. We believe in a happy medium. Our objectives are to provide a cost effective solution and thus use Hybrid inverters to achieve this objective. The principle is to design our systems around the normal daily usage and allow the grid to supplement any additional power we may need from time to time. In this kind of architecture we are able to provide a cost effective solution for daily usage whilst allowing the additional usage to come from the grid in those exceptional circumstances.

Backup solutions.

The backup concept is often misunderstood; we believe a backup solution is to be able to provide an alternative power solution for a period of time. In order to calculate a suitable backup solution, we need to know two very important factors. The maximum amount of power required at any specific moment in time. This information determines the size of the Inverter required, normally expressed in KVA or KW. The average power in KWh required to run for the period of the backup. A good example is if you require an average draw of 2KWh for a period of 4 Hrs, you would require a battery bank capable of supplying you 8 KWh. It is also important to understand that this would provide you the power required to run for the period, but would not contribute to the saving of electricity..

Lighting solutions.

Whilst we are not a specialised lighting company, we do offer a range of simple LED replacements for conventional light fittings. Conversion to LED lighting is widely accepted as another simple method of making a substantial reduction in our electricity consumption. Some Led replacements can reduce the power consumption by 90% and is relatively painless to convert. It is important to remember that Photo Voltaic systems are a substitute for conventional grid power, but the long term goal must be to reduce our power consumption and thus allow us to down scale our demand for electricity.
