Take complete control of your power with an off-grid solar system. Experience the freedom, sustainability, and reliability that comes with generating your own clean energy.

Why off-grid solar?

Energy Independence

Break free from the limitations and costs associated with relying on the traditional electricity grid. With an off-grid solar system, you become self-sufficient generating your own clean energy.

Remote Locations

If you live in a remote area with limited or no access to the electricity grid, off-grid solar is an ideal solution. However, if your property is already connected to the grid, a hybrid system (rather than being completely off-grid) is usually more cost-effective.

Energy Resilience 

When natural disasters strike, off-grid solar systems shine. You’ll have electricity for critical appliances and lighting, without being dependent on external power sources.

Bespoke design

For an off-grid system to work well, it needs to be designed for your specific situation. We have a refined system to ensure we capture all the information needed to design the best system for you. This includes: 

  • Build your energy profile – The first step in any off-grid system is to work out how much energy you will need. We will work through a load sheet to determine what appliances will be used and how long for.
  • Roughly design the system – We’ll calculate the appropriate number of solar panels and the battery capacity required to meet your needs, especially during times of low or no sun.
  • Look at cost – This gives us a starting point for the cost of the system. We may look to reduce loads to bring down the size of the system needed. Often having the most energy-efficient appliances or simply removing unnecessary loads can make a big difference to the size of the system needed.
  • Adjust design – From here we can adjust the design and finalise the perfect system for you.
