Project: 21kWp Solar PV + 30kWhr Li-On battery + 50kVA Diesel Generator Hybrid Energy Project – Houghton, JHB
Project Scope:

This system consists of a custom-designed solar panel roof mounting structure, and a dual-redundant & co-ordinated back-up power supply via a 60kVA 3-phase generator & lithium-ion battery system to ensure a seamless load-shedding free property!

In addition, a 20kWp grid-tied solar PV system has been included to allow daily charging of the 30kWhr 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.

Location: Houghton Estate, JHB
Completion Date: Jul 2020
