Clean, green energy for your business.

The Solar Solution

We can provide you with a renewable energy solution that is the perfect alternative to a grid connection for your business

Make substantial savings

It is expensive to solely use a generator to power your business. By generating your own energy via solar PV you will use considerably less diesel as well as saving money on maintaining and replacing your generator. Most businesses will see a return on investment over a very short period of time, and will benefit from using free energy generated by the sun for many years to come.

Reliable energy supply

We understand how vital it is that your business is operating efficiently. We know how important it is to protect yourself against expensive downtime and ensure you are meeting your client’s deadlines. We will design the perfect system for your business. You will not have to worry about potential power cuts, as your system will provide you with a continuous automated supply of energy, 24/7.

Scalable to match your needs

It is important your business is given the room to grow. Our systems are designed to be easily modified so if your energy demand increases in the future we can easily add additional solar panels to generate more energy or additional storage capacity.

Totally self sufficient

You will be in complete control of your energy supply. Any electricity produced by your PV and storage technology will only be consumed by you. You will be supplied with free green energy for the lifetime of your system.

Increase your green credentials

By switching from generating your energy from fossil fuels which release a lot of carbon into the atmosphere, to clean green renewable energy generated from the sun, you will be helping to prevent climate change and improve air quality for everyone. Many consumers would prefer to use a company with great green credentials, the project would also make great material for a blog or social media posts.

Full visibility and control

We all know how vital data is for every business. Using the Victron monitoring portal you will be able to monitor the performance of your system both live time and historically. This means you always know how much battery power you have, along with having full and detailed data on your energy usage 24/7. This will enable you to identify any potential savings by reducing your usage.

How it works.

We can provide you with a renewable energy solution that is the perfect alternative to a grid connection.

Solar PV Panels.

A Solar PV panel will convert the sun’s energy into electricity which can be used to power your business. It is important you have the right amount of solar panels for your business. We will take many factors into consideration when recommending the number of panels you should have installed, such as your power requirements and the amount of space you have available. There are many ways to install solar panels at your premises. You can attach them onto your existing roof, inset them into your new roof so that they form part of the roof structure or have them installed on the ground with a cable connecting them to your building. We will advise you on the best solution for your property.

Battery Storage.

There are many types of off-grid batteries available, from cheap and cheerful lead acid batteries, eco-friendly salt water batteries and lithium-ion technology, to name a few. Whilst historically lead acid was the main storage technology available, off-grid energy technology has become more intelligent and increasingly automated, and now works better with lithium-ion battery technology. Lithium-ion has a high C rating which means it is fast to charge and discharge, plus you can use 100% of the battery’s stated capacity (you cannot fully discharge a lead acid battery). In addition, lithium batteries cope with larger loads, last longer in terms of the amount of cycles, are smaller and lighter, and quite frankly, look better!

Charge Controller.

A robust solar PV charge controller is required for DC coupled off-grid systems, ensuring maximum energy is drawn from your solar panels using Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and to regulate the flow of PV energy to the inverter/charger when there is overproduction. We use charge controllers that have a VRW online portal that integrates data with the monitoring portal for full visibility of PV production.

Inverter Charger.

Automated and intelligent, this is the hardest working part of an off-grid solar battery/storage system. Responsible not only for managing the inversion process for the different sources of energy (PV panels, storage, back-up generator, hydro, wind etc), the inverter/charger also manages the flow of energy to ensure a balance between battery charging and loads. We always recommend leading technology that comes with remote monitoring and control, enabling full visibility via a smartphone, tablet or computer to monitor the status of your system. We can remotely adjust the automated functions as your energy demand changes, or troubleshoot if there is ever an issue.

Why Off Grid Engineering is the preferred choice.

Here at Off Grid Engineering we feel our knowledge, experience & passion in all things off-grid sets us apart from our competition. Here are the reasons why we are the number one choice for all Off-grid solar PV projects:

1

Off-Grid Specialists

Unlike many of our competitors, we specialise solely in off-grid systems. This gives us the upper hand when it comes to having the knowledge and experience required to ensure you have an uninterrupted power supply 24/7, 365 days of the year. The integration of solar PV, batteries and a generator is best left to highly-skilled, specialist engineers.

2

Bespoke System

Over the space of 24 hours, your business’s energy demand will be unique. It is vitally important that you have a system that is designed with solely your energy requirements in mind. By opting for a one size fits all option you will either be spending more money than needed on equipment as the system is larger than you require or worse still, a system that is too small meaning you will still rely heavily on your generator mitigating the benefits of the PV system. Here at Off Grid Engineering every system we design is completely bespoke and matched perfectly to our client’s energy demand.

3

Future Proofed

We understand that in business energy demand is ever-changing. As each of our systems are bespoke, we ensure we design each system so we can easily add capacity as your requirements change as your business grows over the years.
