Off-Grid Power 

Is the price of a new electricity connection too high?


Off-grid solar power technology is now well priced and very reliable, often being much cheaper than a grid connection price and of course fixed priced green energy electricity for up to 10 years.


We can power anything from a small glamping pod, remote cabin to a 3 phase industrial unit. 


Off-grid power systems and battery storage are usually cheaper than the connection and cheaper than using a generator over a short period of time.


What does off grid mean?


Off-grid is a system and lifestyle designed to help people function without the support of remote infrastructure, such as an electrical grid.


In electricity, off-grid can be stand-alone power system or mini-grids (typically to provide a smaller community with electricity).


Going off-grid represents the ultimate in energy independence. No more utility bills or power outages when the grid goes down.


A common misconception is that a true off-grid house is able to operate independently of all traditional public utility services. Although this is not the case: The term off-grid traditionally refers to the electrical grid only.


Stand-alone electrical power


Electrical power can be generated on-site with renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, micro-hydro and a generator with adequate fuel reserves to back the system up. This system is called a stand-alone power system or sometimes referred to as a Hybrid power system.


What is Battery Storage


Working along-side your solar panels, adding batteries allows you to store electricity for use at another time, meaning when the sun is no longer shinning you can use your electricity stored in your batteries rather than buying energy from the grid.
