PROJECT DETAIL

Objective:

Wanted power on site before family home and shed build commences. Had strong sustainability motivations. The system was required to power a shed initially and a house later on.

Load Analysis:

22-24kWh average daily winter/summer demand; 10.2kW design surge

Site Considerations:

No infrastructure available. Solar ground frames + self contained EnergyBox required

System Design:

  • OEA Complete 130-48 System – 13kW 1-phase output
  • OEA EnergyBox System – install under solar ground frames
  • 79kWh sealed gel battery storage
  • 5kW Polycrystalline solar array on ground frames – yielding an estimated 168% of average demand, and 123% in winter
