AM Solar worked with the client to take the existing solar system which was
under-capacity and was under-performing and to get it to a point where the lodge could be 100% dependent on the solar power.
Additional solar charge via Sanyo 210W PV panels and Outback FM80 charge controllers were bolted onto the system.
Also additional storage was put into the system by means of Raylite 1375AH Tubular Cell, flooded cell batteries, now giving 2 full days of autonomy (i.e. 2 days of power storage).
The system includes an MLT-Drives 6kW off-grid inverter and a 3rd and 4th bank of SetSolar 70W PV Panels.
The system has been programmed and optimised to function as efficiently as possible and to extend the life-span of the system, by means of load measurement and prioritising and by programming in specific hardware related set-points.
