PROJECT DETAIL

Objective:

Customers existing standalone power system was insufficient for their needs. Required larger capacity for a new build. Integrate old solar modules too.

Load Analysis:

11.1-11.7kWh average daily winter/summer demand; 6kW design surge

Site Considerations:

Large shed available for installation; bring old solar PV up to standards

System Design:

  • OEA Complete 80-48 System – 8kW 1-phase output
  • OEA Adapt mount – install in shed
  • 57kWh sealed gel battery storage
  • 4kW Polycrystalline solar array on optimal tilt frames on shed roof – yielding an estimated 132% of average demand, and 110% in winter
  • Integrate old solar array also via dc-shunt and FM80 controller
  • 5KVA backup generator (autostart)
