OFF-GRID/REMOTE SOLAR POWER – SPECIAL PACKAGES

Since 2005, Energy Matters has been designing and installing stand-alone, off grid solar power systems for customers across Australia.

Off grid solar power specials

Using our extensive technical expertise we have developed five easy-to-install systems of various sizes, to suit most household applications. With these ready-made solutions, Energy Matters is making stand-alone solar power simple.

Each kit is designed to deliver a certain amount of electricity over each 24 hours, under specific environmental and user conditions.

Through our pre-assembled, centralised DC control boards, these off grid kits allow the safe collection and distribution of almost any combination of DC charge sources, and the safe distribution of energy to loads.

The key components of each off grid kit are listed below. For current pricing, please visit our off-grid division Apollo Energy.

Notes:

1. The SAPS kits do not include any mounting hardware as standard. This is because there are many different array installation methods used with off-grid systems (e.g. ground-mount, shed roofs, tilt frames). A variety of mounting hardware solutions can be ordered with the base kit as an option – contact your local AE / EM representative for more details.

2. These SAPS kits are designed for general household usage, and are intended to supply most of their power output as 230V AC (via the inverter). The solar array has been sized to produce the required daily energy demand during most months of the year. Depending upon the customer’s location, and site conditions such as prevailing weather and shading, backup charging from a generator may be necessary during winter months and to cover short-term peak power usage.

3. Other regulated DC charging sources, such as wind turbines or hydro turbines can also be connected to the system to provide supplementary charging.

4. The kits are intended to be installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited installer with stand-alone design-and-install accreditation (SPS D&I), while all low voltage wiring and connections must be installed and signed off by a licenced electrician.

Custom off grid system design

Off grid and remote solar power system enquiries and estimates are totally free and provided with no-obligation, however a final quote and site inspection (if required) will incur a $250 design consultation fee; but this can be redeemed against the cost of the system. As part of the consultation fee, you receive:

  • A comprehensive consultation, quote and analysis of load profile from BCSE accredited SAPS designer and installer
  • Quote for installation by our in-house network of BCSE accredited installers and electricians
  • Access to a vast range of manufactures products and technology.
  • We deal directly with manufactures, meaning that if any warranty issues arise, they will be handled swiftly with minimum of disruption to you.

REC / Solar Credit Rebate eligibility

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs/STC’s) provide rebates on off grid systems. The rebate is based on the size of the system in conjunction with the area in which the system will be installed. To determine the zone in which you live, use this table (PDF)..
