The Company

Off-Grid Energy is a designer and installer of high quality battery storage systems for a range of applications. We are a national company who pride ourselves on friendly and lasting customer service, sustainable business practices, and cutting edge technology.

The Challenge

Matt & Simonne wanted power on site before their family home and shed build commenced, meaning there would be no infrasture available and the whole system would need to be self-contained. The system was required to power a shed during the first stage of building, and the customer’s home in the later stage. Although the cost of grid connection was a factor in going off grid, Matt & Simonne are also very sustainability-minded and were very keen to use 100% green power in their new home.

Renewable Solution

A self-contained encolsure was pre-assembled and delivered to site, to be installed underneath one of the two ground mounted solar arrays. Shading from the array providing additional weather protection for the system.
