We customise all our home and farm off-grid systems

The reasons for going Off the Grid are many i.e.

  • Building a new shed or workshop onto an existing rural property
  • Looking to build a new home in an area with no grid connection.
  • Looking for the perfect green-field solution for your holiday retreat/weekender without the ongoing commitment and cost of grid connection.
  • Sustainable living

Getting Grid connection or Live Off the Grid.

For most remote properties the cost of connecting to the grid is higher than installing an independent Off-Grid system. Besides the initial connection cost to the grid, the other cost factor is the projected total cost for grid power over the next 5, 10, 15 years with an assumption there will be an average 5% price increase per year.

Find below your current expected annual cost for grid power in the left column and follow the row to the right to find out what your total cost for grid power over the years will be. That amount should be added to the cost of grid connection.

Being responsible for your own energy also means that you are more aware of your energy usage. Additionally, the sense of being independent of your energy needs and generating energy from renewable energy sources such as solar panels instead of using grid power from dirty generation sources can be enormously satisfying.

Living Off the Grid is easier than you think

It usually requires some lifestyle changes, depending on the type of appliances you have and your electricity demand. Talking to one of our Qualified Experts makes the process easy. Setting up your house using our advice and recommendations can save you a lot of money. We custom assess every system to ensure we supply the best solution fit for each individual client. Our experts get in touch with you to ask a few questions and to obtain a good understanding of your specific needs and circumstances. We then take into consideration permanent or weekend living, having house guests, extreme winter or summer conditions in your specific location etc. Based on this assessment we can then design a system that will work perfectly for you – both now and into the future.


We future-proof your Off-Grid system.


 Size Matters – Small, Medium and Large Off-Grid Systems.

Our small-medium and large Off-Grid systems incorporate highly sophisticated inverter/charger technology, one or multiple solar PV inverters with maximum power point tracking (MPPT),  Lead Carbon batteries or the latest proven Lithium-iron battery technology from BYD. The systems will utilise any combination of solar panels and are prepared for backup generators.

The complete system requires a small amount of space and fits neatly in your utility shed, carport, dedicated room, garage or alternatively in our weatherproof and fully self-contained enclosure. Solar panels can be mounted on your roof or on a ground mount stand.
