PROJECT DETAIL

Objective:

The customer was building a new home and would have had a large cost of connection to the electricity grid. They wanted a system that would be hassle-free and comfortably meet their needs, and to use the latest technology.

Site Considerations:

The shed was the idea place for the system to be installed, with the batteries stacked on top of each other to safe on space. Being in a cold climate area, allowances needed to be made for low solar input in winter.

System Design: 

  • SMA Sunny Island 8.0 Inverter Charger
  • BMZ ESS7.0 lithium-ion battery unit (20kWh)
  • 32 x Tindo Solar 260W solar modules
  • 2 x SMA Sunny Boy 4000TL
  • Tilted roof-mount array framing
