Advantages of offgrid

  • Can be cheaper than bringing the power to the property by thousands

We work with you to help design a system that will cater to your needs and usage.

Lithium Ion batteries
We offer a range of lithium Ion batteries for offgrid and hybrid applications. Depending on your needs we can provide a battery system that’s best suited for your needs. We use only lithium technology as reliability and performance is much better than older battery technology. We supply and recommend LG Chem and BYD as our main off grid battery solutions.

Why install a battery?

  • Reduce your bills even further by having your battery cover your night time usage
  • In the event of a power outage a battery would allow you to still have power to run those essentials like lights and fridges until the mains power is back on.
  • With the VIC Solar battery rebate reduce your payback time on the battery as well!

The rebate is for certain battery and inverter combinations. TESLA Powerwall 2 is the most common choice for those looking at installing a battery under the rebate scheme.

If you’re existing system has a hybrid inverter than give us a call and we can give you other options.
