OFF Grid Solar Power Systems
Be Your Own Utility Company
Off-Grid solar power is the perfect solution for homes and businesses that do not have a reliable power supply, or who choose to be independent of the mains electricity grid.
SolarWide design, supply and install off grid solar power systems that provide safe and reliable power for a range of applications. From small holiday cabins to large homes and businesses, even entire communities an off grid solar power system is the eco-friendly alternative that allows you to be completely independent of the power grid and means no power bills, ever! These systems are often referred to as “stand alone” or “remote area” power systems.
How Off Grid Solar Power Works
Solar panels use sunlight to generate electricity, this electricity then charges a battery bank to store your power for use as needed. At night you use your stored power, and the sun recharges the batteries the next day. Simple!
Off Grid Solar Power Rebates
Generous financial incentives are available that will greatly reduce the cost of your off-grid solar power system through the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.
Eligible small scale off-grid solar power systems are entitled to a number of small scale technology certificates (STC’s) based on the amount of MWH of electricity the system generates over its lifetime. In addition, you may also be eligible for the solar credits multiplier for the first 20 kW of their system. This multiplies the number of small scale technology certificates the system can receive.
There is however a limit on the number of multiplied certificates that are able to be claimed each year, so if you are considering installing an off grid solar power system, we recommend acting soon to ensure your receive the maximum level of incentives.
