Off Grid / Hybrid Solar System – 1.6kW PV Array | 5.76kWh Lead Carbon Bank | 3KVA Inverter Charger

This renewable energy package is an ideal off grid / grid hybrid solar system that will dramatically reduce your power bills – often to ‘service to property’ charges only, which also gives you power in a blackout.

NOW with Lead Carbon 24V battery bank: These Lead Carbon batteries feature an impressive 3500 cycles to 50% depth of discharge and 20 year design life- DOUBLE the ratings for GEL of similar capacity.  These batteries combine the diverse advantages of Lead acid and super capacitors to produce a high quality energy storage system which can power your home for many years to come.

On average, there will be 7.5 kW-hours of power available from the solar array per day – based on 5hrs of effective sunshine per day. More sunshine = more power. This solar PV design principle reduces the amount of time the batteries will be low on charge, which maximises their life expectancy & provides far more reliable power.

When there is no sunshine or badly overcast weather, the battery reserve capacity will give the following power from full charge down to 50%:

  • 2.88 kWh for one day, or
  • 1.44 kWh per day for two days, or
  • 0.96 kWh per day for 3 days

The solar array can then recharge the battery bank from 50% flat in around 4 hours of effective sunshine, depending on any loads running on the system at the same time. A generator can be used to recharge the battery bank and run loads through the inverter at the same time too.

Estimate your system requirements using our off-grid calculator.

These sealed Tubular GEL batteries have an exceptional cycle life of around 3000 cycles to 50% discharged. The batteries could last for around 20 years if discharged to 50% every three days at worst, providing they are kept insulated from temperature extremes and not left discharged for periods of time.

Create a Grid-Hybrid system, where your Solar energy is used & stored as first priority. Power will be supplied primarily from the solar panels & battery bank. If there is insufficient power, the inverter switches over to the Grid AC power supply automatically. This design principle uses your solar & stored energy first before reverting back to the grid power. This can be more feasible than the low grid feed-in tariff typically on offer. The inverter will switch over to mains AC power on a battery capacity or voltage level which can be set on the LCD screen. A generator can be used in place of grid power for charging the batteries and running loads in the event of a few cloudy days or some heavy power usage.

Create a Backup Power System or UPS – With the inverter set to AC priority mode, power will be normally supplied from the mains AC power. If there is a black-out or mains fault, the inverter will switch over to solar & battery to supply power. The solar panels and mains power will keep the batteries full of charge so they are at full capacity whenever a power failure happens.

Please note this system will not feed energy back into the grid! Instead, all your solar energy harvest is used by your household with solar priority mode. The inverter can also charge the battery bank from AC power if there has not been enough sunny days. In AC priority mode, the inverter will supply pure sine wave power from the AC input, & switch over to solar / battery power in the event of an AC input power failure.

Besides the front LCD, this inverter charger can be connected to a computer (software & cable included) to get detailed information about your energy harvest, battery sate & power usage. Settings can also be adjusted via either the LCD or the Software from a PC.
