From our recent
Over the last few years we've received numerous inquiries to design off-grid PV solar systems for cottages and structures that require electricity on a daily basis, but to bring hydro to those structures is simply too expensive. During the year 2011 prices of the solar panels have dropped by 40%! PV solar systems are now a lot more affordable and have a reasonable buy back time.
Off-grid PV solar system is the best available solution for remote locations where electrical power is needed.
Logitest Solar team has designed "DIY off-grid packages" for everyone to have a chance to try and in most cases save on electricity. Off-grid packages can also be used as a backup power and can be installed likewise on the roof or on the ground. They do not require any maintenance and can be easily transported to any new location if you decice to move or sell your property.
"DIY off-grid packages" are made for people who are interested in saving money on installation and prefer to do everything themselves. Easy to install with connection manual attached to each"DIY off-grid" packages, anyone can start saving on their hydro bill!
DIY OFF-GRID PACKAGES
DIY off-grid package comes with a soalr panel, charge controller, 12V battery, DC disconnect and wires. Smallest DIY off-grid packages can provide electrical power for a TV, Laptop, DVD player, or even a small fridge. One 12V battery fully charged is enough to power up to 12 fluorescent lights for over a week.
If you have a cottage and have power shortages, you can use a DIY off-grid PV solar system as a backup power generator.
NOTE: Cottage, which is visited once per week and the length of the visit is less than 3 days, can be equipped with a single solar panel and 3-4 batteries. This will alllow you to have more power when you need it. In case the power is required on daily basis, but in smaller portions, single solar panel and a single battery should be enough. All "DIY off-grid packages" can be up sized to provide you needed power consumption at any time. So start small, you can always add more batteries and solar panels.
Off-Grid/Battery Backup Solar Project consists of next stages:
- Sizing the future system
- Submit documentation for a building permit
- Receive Building Permit
- Open an Electrical permit
- Schedule the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) inspection
- Order the materials
- Solar panels
- Mounting system
- Charge Controllers
- Junction boxes
- Disconnect switch
- Install solar modules, inverters, etc.
- Pass Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) inspection
- Close Building Permit
- Start using solar energy
