From Huge to Tiny!

Today we completed a lovely little system providing power to an unusual off grid installation in the centre of a popular Dorset seaside town.

Using a 130Wp PV module and 240Ah of batteries, this system provides enough power for lights and 12v & 230v power for a weekend retreat.

As it has proved to be either expensive or difficult to bring in power and mains water for this location, the owner has opted for Off Grid living during holidays and breaks.

The main system has been running all summer, providing power and lights, and has worked beyond expectations.

Dartmoor Off Grid

We have been commencing an installation of a large off grid system in Dartmoor on the high moor. With temperatures in the winter plunging to -17C on occasion and a wild variation of weather conditions that are always prevalent on the Moor, this dwelling needs as much backup and self suffiency as possible. There is no mains electricity or water available, so we are taking part in implementing a complete infrastructure for the customer.
From Solar PV through control electronics, backup generator and house wiring, we will be providing a complete self reliant system for the customer.

The picture here shows the partly completed array being installed.

More to be posted on this project as systems are installed.
