Project Requirements

After receiving a preposterous bill from the utility the wishing to have a off grid solar solution for their farm supplying power to 3 homes, farm yard and 2 guest houses.


A system was designed to handle large daily loads for farm operation with 20 Kw of Solar Panels and 3 x 15Kva Victron Inverter with a 15 Kw Diesel generator as backup for Rainy days.
At The Heart of the system is 6 x 3.55 Kwh Sirius Modules that delivers power for night usage.


Off Grid living at its best .The Sirius bank enables the client to runs off storage at night time and fast efficient charging allows this bank to be recharged from the sun early mornings.

The Multi cycles that a Supercapacitor can offer to a solution also assist with load during the day that exceeds the Solar panels arrays capacity. The client has disconnected themselves from the utility and enjoys freedom for the utility
