5kw Off Grid Solar System
5kW Off Grid Solar System
This 5kw Off Grid Solar System can be applied to any home or shed. The deep-cycle battery bank supplies over 60 kW/hours of electrical energy, meaning that this system is completely operable all year round with the deep cycle batteries storing sufficient power in the advent of several days of overcast weather.
Located on the North side of Brisbane this 5kw off grid solar system was a solution to getting reliable electricity to a site where the main grid was several kilometres away and the cost of connection was in the 10′s of $1,000′s.
This 5kw construction consists of;
- 21 x 250 Watt Suntech Polycrystalline solar panels,
- An Outback 80 amp MPPT Solar Charger,
- Exide 1330 Amp-hour Deep Cycle Batteries,
- Selectronic SP PRO 5 kW inverter/charger.
The SP PRO inverter-charger includes an inbuilt charger, so if a recharge of the battery bank is required it can be set up automatically to start a generator to recharge. The SP PRO can deliver 15 kW instaneously to start air-conditioners, pool pumps, welders and transfer pumps. It can also be combined with a generator to deliver the output of the inverter and generator.
Monitor Your Off Grid Solar System
