Hybrid 21kWp Solar PV + 30kWhr Li-On battery + 50kVA Diesel Generator integrated project – Houghton, JHB

Hybrid Solar PV + Li-On battery + Diesel Generator integrated project – Houghton, JHB

Almost ready to kick off another  at a new large-scale residential development in Houghton, JHB.

This system consists of a custom-designed solar panel roof mounting structure, and a dual-redundant & co-ordinated back-up power supply via generator & lithium-ion battery system to ensure a seamless load-shedding free property!

In addition, a grid-tied solar PV system has been included to allow daily charging of batteries from renewable energy to significantly reduce long-term electricity costs in the order of R90 000 per annum, that would otherwise have been incurred by the owner.

The system is designed to be centrally and remotely monitored, allowing us to optimise settings in future if we detect changes in the client’s usage patterns. Built with industry-leading equipment with warranties to match.

18kW Solar PV + 60kWhr Li-On battery + 12kW Battery System

Scope:

Design & executed a hybrid solar + storage system using Victron & Freedom Won to take a 6-bedroom house over 95% off the grid.  Maximised self-sufficiency by installing sufficient battery storage to absorb all excess solar PV during the day to discharge throughout the night. System includes grid limiting and active control of a grid-tied inverter to allow off-grid functionality of solar PV.

Battery system also serves as primary load shedding protection. Integrated client’s existing diesel generator such that it can serve as a secondary back-up should power outages be extended and reduction in diesel consumption if load shedding during sunlight hours. System includes remote monitoring and control to allow active monitoring and tweaking of system for maximum customisation and optimisation.

Also executed main DB and sub-DB re-distribution of loads, some energy efficiency measures to ensure smooth and optimal performance of system.
