The UK’s leading off grid solar PV experts.

Relax in the knowledge that your off-grid solar PV project is in safe hands.

With decades of experience in designing and installing solar systems across the UK, Scott & Ian have joined forces to create Off Grid Engineering. Whether you are looking for a small system for your home or a large commercial project Scott & Ian would have been there and done it all before. Our motto is keep it simple, skip the sales team and get a specialist engineer to design a bespoke system that exactly matches your energy needs. We can recommend the best quality products at the right price so you get a system that is guaranteed to last you for many years to come. We will take control of the whole project from start to finish and install everything in house, so the only people working on your system are specialist off grid engineers. With our unique monitoring capabilities, we will still be looking after your system long after we have completed your installation. One of the many advantages of having a bespoke system is that if your needs change in the future and you need more power we can simply add to your existing set up, resulting in you being future proofed.

Ian

Off-Grid Engineer

Read Ian's Bio

Whilst working as an electrician, Ian became involved in the Solar PV industry in 2010 after qualifying in the Design & Installation of Solar Photovoltaics & Renewable Energy. Ian managed the O&M of a large portfolio of over 12000 domestic installations and over 30MW of Solar farms. Ian then moved into the Off-Grid sector and went to Holland in 2015 to be extensively trained in all elements of design and installation of off grid PV systems. Ian quickly became an industry leader by both designing and installing several high-profile projects. Ian worked in conjunction with both Swansea and Cardiff universities on the Solcer house, and Off Grid Classroom projects. Both won numerous awards including The Innovation and Impact Award in 2015 & Welsh Energy Efficiency Award for best Solar PV Project in 2017. Ian even hosted a visit for a Chinese government Delegation who were interested in the technology. Whilst continuing to design and manage the installation of over 60 Off grid projects, Ian regularly presents at seminars for professionals such as architects to educate in the technicalities of off grid solar PV. In 2018 Ian assisted in the design and development of a new monitoring device designed for off grid systems which enables remote monitoring in areas with no internet connection whilst providing an internet connection for the property owners in areas with no coverage.

Scott

Off-Grid Engineer

Read Scott's Bio

After many years of being a master electrician, Scott became involved in the solar PV industry after gaining his City and Guilds qualification in installing photovoltaics at the Centre for Alternative Technology in 2010. Since then Scott has installed close to a thousand PV systems both in the domestic and commercial sector. Scott has a great interest in domestic battery storage, and was involved in many industry firsts such as installing the first Tesla home battery in the UK. Scott has installed over 50 off-grid systems all over the UK, from Shepherds huts in Devon to large three phase commercial installations off the M11 in London. Always keen to improve his knowledge of electrical production and distribution Scott has received training and certification in the Appreciation of Generator Principles & Protection Theory from the Faraday Centre. Last year Scott was awarded The Newly Certified Electrical Technician of the year from the BMEEA (British Marine Electrical and Electronics Association) To add to Scott’s land based electrical qualifications he is BMET (British Marine Electrical Technician) and a member of NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) and is a certified Marine electronics Installer.

Off Grid Solar PV –
The Technology.

Upgrade your existing system.

We have vast experience in upgrading existing Off Grid solar PV systems. With Lithium battery storage becoming mainstream over the last few years, it is a great time to upgrade your existing lead acid battery system. Lithium has a high C rating which means it is faster to charge and discharge and you can also use 100% of your battery (you cannot fully discharge a lead acid battery) In addition lithium batteries cope better with larger loads, last longer in terms of the number of cycles, are smaller and lighter and to be honest they look better too. It is not just the battery chemistry that has improved, off grid technology has become more automated and now with the ability to monitor remotely, your off-grid system has now become truly intelligent.
