Medium Off Grid Solar Systems

Our Medium 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 Medium Off-Grid System comes with up to 16 x 370 watt solar panels, an expandable 48 volt lithium battery bank with an (outdoor rated) enclosure, a wall-mountable distribution board with Solar AC inverter or 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.

Solar System Examples

6 Panel Kit

Customisation

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

Grundfos Pressure Pump

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 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 Medium 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 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 Medium Systems will create STCs (when installed by an Off-Grid accredited installer). For example, the 16 Panel Kit would currently create $3026 worth of STCs. This will take a large chunk off the installation cost.

Training & Support

In addition to the detailed instruction manuals, a Medium 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.
