Get off the grid with our all inclusive Off-Grid Solar Kit. Designed to power your bach, cabin, or off-grid lifestyle.
The Off-Grid Solar Kit is perfect for your small bach or cabin when you want to run larger loads. Capable of running:

The above is worked out on 3 days of autonomy (3 days without sun), you could run more appliances/use more power, during summer or if using a generator in winter, to top your batteries up after 3 days without sun.

The Off-Grid Solar Kit has 1680W (Watts) of solar panels. In New Zealand during summer we receive 6-8 hours of sunshine every day, this equates to around 11760Wh (Watt hours) of power generated daily. During the winter months, there is considerably less sunlight hours, typically around 3-4 hours, giving you around 5040Wh. When choosing the correct size Solar Kit for your home, we recommend purchasing a kit that will produce enough power for you in the winter months rather than the summer.
Please note that price of the kit may change depending on length of cables required. We can do custom lengths to suit your installation.
When ordering your Solar Panel Kit, please let us know where you intend to mount your kit, so that we can provide you with the correct mounting kit for your installation. If you are mounting on your roof, let us know what your roof is made from.
Please Note: Any work on Voltages exceeding 50V, must be done by a registered electrician.
