Value Off Grid Solar Systems

Large Solar Distribution Board

Our Value Off-Grid Solar Systems are entry-level residential power systems, large enough to supply an efficient household with renewable energy.

Suitable for low-consumption electricity users who are used to cooking with gas, and who do not heat or cool the dwelling with electricity. If this is you, one of these systems may be all you need to live off the grid.

A Value Off-Grid System comes with up to 8 x 260 watt solar panels, a 24 volt solar battery bank with custom-made enclosure, and the pictured wall-mountable distribution board with MPPT regulator, DC breakers, fuses. The board offers enough extra space to accommodate a battery charger and a DC/AC inverter (up to 3000W).

The below example solar systems are available as supply only kits, or can be fully installed by an off-grid accredited installer.

Customisation

The above system configurations serve as example only. A Value Off-Grid Solar System can be customised to suit your needs; you can even do it yourself using our online design tools (see above).

Battery State of charge on Victron BMV700 monitor

Battery Monitor

The tool lets you choose / add / remove:

  • Choose a solar frame to suit roof type / pitch
  • Upgrade to BAE or Sonnenschein Batteries
  • Choose a larger inverter
  • Add 230V outlets
  • Add a battery monitor

If in doubt just provide as much detail as possible and we shall get back to you to discuss your options.

Installation

Many of our customers install Value Off-Grid Systems themselves - all required steps are straight forward, and elaborate instructions are provided. If your board includes a DC/AC inverter, a licensed electrician is needed to complete the installation.

The distribution board and batteries should be installed indoors (e.g. shed, garage, or dedicated room). Batteries must be close (~1m) to the board, but not directly underneath.

CEC accredited installer logo

If you reside within ~ 4 hours of Nimbin, we can install the system for you. In this case it may pay to upgrade your solar system with an approved inverter as such a system (when installed by an Off-Grid accredited installer) then qualifies for STCs. For example, the 8 Panel Kit would currently create $1634 worth of STCs. This may cover the installation cost entirely.

Training & Support

In addition to the detailed instruction manuals, a Value Off-Grid Solar System also includes participation in our Living with Solar workshop valued at $195. Furthermore, attendees also received a copy of our famous book Energy From Nature.

Should you ever get stuck during installation or thereafter, phone and/or email support is available at no extra cost.
