Off-Grid Stand Alone
An off-grid power system is totally independent of the power grid, a complete stand alone system. It generally consists of solar panels, an inverter & controller, a battery bank and may include a wind turbine and/or generator. Stand alone systems are ideal for remote communities of Australia where the main power grid is not accessible or the cost of connection is prohibitive. With the ever-increasing cost of power, many people are turning to stand alone systems as an affordable solution, not only to control their own power generation but also the costs thereof.
A grid-connect solar power system will generate electricity during daylight hours and feed power into your home the same way as the mains power does. At times, when your electricity consumption is less than what your solar power system is generating, your excess power is fed back into the grid. However, when your power consumption exceeds your solar power generation, or in the evenings, you will utalise power from the grid. This whole process happens automatically, with no effort required by the home owner.
A Hybrid system is a grid-connect solar power system with a battery back-up supply. It is an ideal solution for those looking for a reliable power solution and is well suited to those in regional areas of Australia. During the day your solar system feeds the power generated back into your home. Any power not consumed is exported to the battery bank and utilized to recharge your batteries. If the mains power grid should fail, or you experience a blackout, your inverter will automatically switch over to your batteries and provide your home with an uninterrupted supply of power.
Solar Panels / Photovoltics
Australia is one of the sunniest countries in the world and there is huge potential for solar (PV) to make a significant contribution to electricity generation.
Solar power generates energy from sunlight, even on cloudy days it will harness power from the sun. Solar power is a safe, environmental friendly and an effective way to produce power.
Installing a solar system, is a smart green solution, that will save you money.
