Off grid Installation - Bibhoora One person

This customer was located in Bibhoora, a few Km's from Mareeba. This system was a small system, installed as a DC - Coupled system, using the Australian Made Latronics inverter to power the system. The system was for a retired single person.


Appliances the customer was running:

  • 1x 300 Litres up right fridge freezers
  • 4x compact fluro lamps
  • Microwave, toaster, jug
  • Pedestal Fans
  • TV & Radio,
  • Washing Machine

So we installed

  • 9x Jinko 250watt Poly solar Panels 2.25 KW
  • 1x Schnider 40amp Charger Controller
  • 1x Latronics 1.8Kva Inverter
  • 12x 2v BAE Batteries (24volt battery bank 410 Amp-Hour Batteries 11 Kw of batteries)
  • 1x Battery Monitor r

The solar array installed was 250 percent over sized, to ensure even in overcast conditions batteries will remain highly charged. On most days the batteries are complexly charged before 11 am.

The expected eatery life is 13 years, customer chose to increase dayily discharge as the daily discharge amount was around 35 percent, and the batteries will run for 2.3 days with completely no solar input which would only occur on a equipment fault, as the solar input is so high it is very unlikely to have 0 input.
