2.5 kW Off Grid Solar – Central Queensland

Date: April 4, 2018

This Off Grid Solar system installed in Central Queensland was a solution of getting reliable electricity to a site where the mains was more than 1 kilometre and at a cost of more than $30,000 to connect.

The Outback inverter/charger automatically detects when the generator is present and switches the load from the inverters to generator, whilst recharging the batteries. The Outback inverter/charger can deliver a massive 5750 Watts of surge power to start up water pumps, fridges, freezers and power tools.

The Exide Energystore deep-cycle batteries supply 5 days of electrical energy, meaning that if the advent of overcast weather the owners still have continuous and reliable power. Once the sun shines again, the 2.5 kW array recharges the battery bank in less than 2 days.

This Off Grid Solar system supplies all essential power to a household where the occupants live comfortably with any interruptions to their lifestyle. It was a solution of getting reliable electricity to a site where the main electricity was more than 1 kilometre.
