OFF GRID SOLAR SYSTEM
For all our years in the solar industry, both here and in the USA, No Grid Solar have been fortunate to have worked alongside some of the best off grid engineers, energy management and solar system designers in the world.
The energy crisis in Australia is so mired in misinformation, political intrigue and hidden agendas that it will take decades for a common sense approach to base load electricity generation. The adoption of renewable power systems to achieve this end demonstrates an unbelievable ignorance as to how the mass supply of electricity needs to work.
“One of the two natural solutions to this growing problem for the consumer has been off grid solar systems but the issues of cost, equipment reliability, scalability and storage had made this unattractive…UNTIL NOW!”.
- John Palmer, CEO NGSW Group
Off Grid Solar
Australians “enjoy” the most expensive electricity in the OECD world. Indeed we pay far more than many third world countries. This is not a situation that is likely to change for the better soon and, in fact, is about to get far worse.
Consider the following:
1. We are a vast country sparsely populated so the transmission of electricity is a very expensive exercise.
2. We have a love affair (for whatever reason) with renewable power systems that, when Government subsidy mechanisms are removed, is a significantly more expensive means of generating constant load electricity. Any debate to the contrary conveniently ignores the true production cost per kWh.
3. Australia has a diminishing ability to generate electricity after dark with older coal and gas powered generators falling into disrepair.
4. Energy retailers will become more creative in the way in which they will bill their residential customers adopting Demand, Network and Power Factor charges to compensate for a reduction in the base kWh price.
5. The national grid cannot take much more solar generated renewable energy back into it per day.
6. We are experiencing greater extremities in temperature which will lead to greater energy use.
7. The country is still pursuing a population growth agenda placing greater demand upon grid connected static assets and power systems.
8. Adopting electric car technology will see a huge demand for electricity during night time when these vehicles will typically be charged. If, as some espouse, we have a million of these all recharging at night the country would need an extra 25 gigawatts of electricity generation Which is almost all the electricity currently generated by Coal Fired Power Stations!

With Off Grid Solar power, You Don't Have To
For many years off grid solar power, grid free or stand alone power has been the only alternative to replace a generator for those who had no ready access to the grid or found the cost of connection too great to justify the exercise.
But using off grid solar had its restrictions. Many appliances and machines are not compatible with off grid solar and many power systems are poorly designed or are built with sub standard componentry.
There have been three major issues:
1. SIZE. In considering an off grid solar system it needs to be designed to mitigate as many factors as possible. Whilst typical average usage may be 25kWh per day, any off Grid solar package would need to be built to generate 3 times that. The battery bank would need to be able to store enough electricity for a minimum 3 days and be constantly charging and discharging. Solar systems of this size would also need a significant roof area or be ground mounted.
2. QUALITY. The components of any off Grid system package work harder than standard solar systems and need to be purpose built to run in permanent “black out” mode. Of the components the battery bank/battery storage have been the weak link with either limited cycle life or rate of discharge issues.
3. COST. Installing a professional Off Grid solar power kit has, until now, been prohibitively expensive.
But, notwithstanding the above, there has also been a reluctance to relinquish the backup that grid power offers.
The Off-Grid Power System Specialists
The great enemy of solar power is the Grid power systems. If the Grid is removed from the discussion about the benefits of solar energy the answer becomes simpler as we look to adopt a “closed system” approach to powering our lifestyle. Because of the Grid we are limited to the size of system we can put on our homes which denies us designing an effective system to fully power them. And batteries work best in a “closed system”, in other words, a system where the battery power interfaces immediately with the end use…like a power tool. Where they don’t work well is when they are remote or communal because moving the electricity to and from source and use becomes increasingly inefficient the greater distance it has to travel, so battery storage becomes paramount.
And there is so much misinformation out there (even from supposed experts) about the solar battery. Lithium technology has advanced in leaps and bounds to the point that you can purchase batteries with an effective life in excess of 50 years. That doesn’t necessarily extrapolate into price reduction but it does impact on Return on Investment. The price of quality lithium batteries is more a function of the extraordinary margins applied in this country from manufacturer to end purchaser and, more often than not, what is perceived to be quality is anything but.
No Grid Solar understands the limitations of existing solar systems and storage in the battery bank but offers a truly comprehensive stand alone solution…and it can only occur if you are fully utilising off grid solar. Off grid solar packages have come a long way since the days of banks of lead acid batteries dictating a frugal existence…a life of compromise always dictated by the weather and the constant noise of a generator as a life line when the battery storage ran out of power.
The future of solar is a move away from AC and the need to invert electricity generated by solar panels to interface with the grid. This predicts a DC to DC world. and is evidenced in the power tool industry which has revolutionised construction. It is simply an appliance powered by a rechargeable battery and, in the very near future, we will see a new genre of household appliances built the same way.
We are at the vanguard of this technology working with suppliers to design protocols that can advance the solar battery revolution and forever change the way in which we interface with off grid electricity.
Already No Grid Solar can fit battery powered reverse cycle air conditioners into homes, fit solar powered pool pumps, create an entire family’s water requirements, cool alfresco areas, purify masses of water in any weather, provide solar battery powered refrigeration and supply all the energy any home requires using solar panels, AFFORDABLY, FOREVER and FREE OF ANY RUNNING COSTS. A complete stand alone off grid solution.
