Large Off Grid Solar Systems

Large Solar Distribution Board

Our Large Off-Grid Solar Systems are residential power systems, big enough to supply a modern Australian home with renewable energy.

Suitable for small families using modern appliances. You would still need to do your cooking with gas, but you can run your fridge, washing machine, dishwasher and pump simultaneously. If you have a pool pump or plan to run several air-conditioners you may still need a larger system.

A Large Off-Grid System comes with up to 21 x 300 watt solar panels, an expandable 48 volt lithium battery bank with an outdoor rated enclosure, and the pictured wall-mountable control centre with MPPT regulator, inverter-charger, system monitor, breakers & fuses.

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 Large Off-Grid Solar System can be customised to suit your needs; you can even do it yourself using our online design tools (see above).

Pramac Petrol Generator ES5000

The tool lets you choose / add / remove:

  • Choose a solar frame to suit roof type / pitch
  • Change battery cabinet
  • Choose a larger inverter
  • Add 230V outlets
  • Add a generator or other accessories

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 Large Off-Grid Systems themselves - all required steps are straight forward, and elaborate instructions are provided. There are only a few steps where a licensed electrician is needed to complete the installation.

The distribution board should be installed indoors (e.g. garage or dedicated room). Batteries must be close (~1.5m) to the board. The IP55 battery cabinet can be placed outside but should not sit in direct sunlight.

CEC accredited installer logo

If you reside within ~ 4 hours of Nimbin, we can install the system for you. A 48V Large Systems will create STCs (when installed by an Off-Grid accredited installer). For example, the 21 Panel Kit would currently create $3390 worth of STCs. This will take a large chunk off the installation cost.

Training & Support

In addition to the detailed instruction manuals, a Large Off-Grid Solar System also includes participation in our Living with Solar workshop valued at $295.

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