Off Grid Homes

Fully Off Grid Home in a remote part of Wales. 

Whether you live in a remote location, or have the desire to be completely self sufficeint we have the knowledge and experience to design the perfect system to best suit your needs.
 
Realiability is key and each system is completely different so to get an idea of cost please call 01903 213141 to speak to one of our technical team providing as much information as you can. 

 

Off Grid Systems can be completely self sufficient or partially grid connected. These are the differences.

Fully off grid. This is a place where no mains grid is available. Perhaps due to huge costs for the national grid to run power or perhaps the desire to be self sufficient. In most case up until now these remote areas have relied upon diesel generators which have large running costs, currently an average home costs around £450 per month in fuel plus servicing.

With solar this can be achieved however the initial costs are usually slightly higher than a generator and lower than paying for the mains power supply. These systems are regularly designed using Solar PV to power the building along with battery storage to for extra power when required as well as at night. A small generator for times when power is low (typically winter) or the power requirement is very high. Systems without generator backup are possible however this is usually the most cost effective method and will depend on the site. The best way to calculate and design a system is to speak with one of our professional engineers. They can take you though the basic principals and possible costs of your project.  

Example of a Full Off Grid House in Chichester, West Sussex. 3KW Solar system with Battery Storage was installed the Customer had their own Back up generator.

Example of an Off grid Stable block in Ringmer East Sussex. Often these can be run through a 12V system however this one required mains supply.  

Partially off grid.  When mains power is available but not desired or is intermittent. 

The system is similar to the above consisting of solar pv, batteries and possibly wind turbine. The difference here is that the mains power can be used as a backup or generator saving thousands on maintenance and fuel costs. For a residential system bills can be reduced to almost 20% or lower if other energy steps are taken to increase efficiency. Costs for this style of system starts from £3200 plus a solar pv system. If you already have a solar pv system installed this can simply be added. A new system is not required.
