PROJECT DETAIL

Objective:

High cost of connection for grid power, and a preference towards sustainable energy

Load Analysis:

15.3-19.6kWh average daily winter/summer demand; 6kW design surge

Site Considerations:

Optimal solar roof area and equipment room being built in preparation

System Design:

  • OEA Complete 80-48 System – 8kW 1-phase output
  • OEA Adapt mount – install in shed
  • 53kWh sealed gel battery storage
  • 7kW Polycrystalline solar array on roof – yielding an estimated 150% of average demand, and an excellent 126% in winter

6KVA backup generator (autostart)
