Off Grid Solar System Components
High Quality Components
The better the components, the better your overall stand alone power system. High quality components are more expensive but pay off in the long run.
Trina Solar Panels - best value
Independently tested on-site in the Australian desert, Trina Solar panels produced the second best average output versus leading Japanese, European and American brands, revealing the superior quality and performance delivered by a vertically integrated manufacturing process. See test results.
REC Solar Panels
REC's solar panel are manufactured in Singapore and come with a 25 year manufacturing, labour and performance warranty. The TwinPeak 2 panels are produced mostly with hydroelectric power rather than fossil fuels giving them a low carbon footprint right from the start.
Clenergy ezRack Solar Frames - Built to Last
High quality, versatile solar PV mounting products for commercial and residential solar installations from Clenergy. Backed by a 10 year warranty and of course fully compliant with the AU/NZ standards. Suitable for a wide variety of building types and climatic zones.
For medium AC coupled systems we use Sungrow inverters. They are exceptional value for money and very popular in Australia. The passive cooling via heat sink allows the inverter to run at full capacity up to 45 °C ambient temperature before the output is de-rated.
For large AC coupled systems we use Fronius inverters. The Austrian made solar inverters are highly regarded for their quality and reliability and the company itself enjoys a reputation for outstanding service. Fronius solar inverters work particularly well with Victron Energy battery inverter-chargers.
SMA Inverter & Inverter Chargers - German Efficiency
We use German SMA inverters and inverter chargers for our extra large and three phase systems. SMA is a renowned manufacturer for solar and battery inverters and has a long standing reputation for reliability, quality and innovation.
Top features: high efficiency and intelligent battery management for maximum battery life-span.
Victron Energy products include sinewave inverters, sinewave inverters/chargers, battery chargers, DC/DC converters, transfer switches, battery monitors and more. Victron Energy products are widely considered to be the professional choice for independent electric power.
Pylon Technologies - Rack Mountable Batteries
Pylontech produces a wide range of Lithium-ion batteries for small hand-held devices up large containerised power systems. The US2000 and US3000 models are the most cost effective option for small to medium size off-grid residential systems.
BYD Lithium Batteries - Build your Dreams
While mainly known for its electric vehicles - forklifts, buses, trains and even passenger cars - BYD Company Limited also produces a variety of Lithium batteries.
We use the modular and stackable Premium LVS (48V) battery with a protection rating of IP55. They are ideally suited for larger systems and very easy to install.
