Custom Containerised Solar PV + Battery Storage Solutions for Africa

Custom Containerised Solar PV + Battery Storage Solutions for Africa

Our custom-designed solar PV & battery storage containerised solutions are engineered for Africa, but designed & built locally in Johannesburg.

This current pair of retro-fitted shipping container systems were designed for AC-coupled solar PV minigrid integration, taking our electricity-intensive client off-grid using advanced lithium-ion battery technology and top tier inverter, solar and monitoring equipment with lifespan guarantees ranging from 10 to to 25 years.

In addition to being designed as a plug-and-play system once dropped down at any urban or rural site, we’ve spec’d these units to have remote monitoring capability, thermal insulation, on-site access security control, alarm & fire prevention systems, small power & lighting, comprehensive earthing as well as air-conditioning.

Civil site works currently underway to allow deployment next week. Our team is looking forward to testing & commissioning these systems!

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.

First Post COVID-19 Lockdown Installation

First Post COVID-19 Lockdown Installation

Our first Level 3 residential battery backup system completed post lockdown in South Africa. Good to be back on sites again helping our customers take control of their electricity supplies and to beat any imminent load shedding.

This system was designed to include a top-of-the-range 6.5kW battery inverter and 10.5kWhr of lithium-ion batteries, sufficient to run a 4 bedroom house for well over 12 hours, with battery life guaranteed to last over 10 years.

Also includes remote monitoring to control and visualize energy usage from the palm of our client’s hand via a mobile app interface.
