Energy Solutions - Off Grid Systems

Off Grid

We are the UK's leading supplier of off grid power systems supplying high quality hybrid power systems to residential and commercial customers across the UK and internationally for whom connection to the grid is not a viable option.

Our range of Off Grid Solutions includes EasyGrid – a plug and play hybrid solution for homes and businesses looking for a straightforward, affordable way to generate their own power; VariPower – a variable speed generator hybrid power system, and Containerised systems – robust, semi bespoke systems ideal for isolated projects.

We work with off grid power for a variety of sectors including Residential, Farming, Construction, Commercial, Leisure, Glamping, Broadcast, Monitoring, Humanitarian Aid, Utilities and Telecoms.

Our customers use off grid power solutions for many reasons including:

Location makes a grid connection too expensive or not possible.

A need for uninterrupted power - protection from power cuts and the ability to power independently in all conditions.

Reduction in energy bills and the ability to maximise the use of renewable energies.

Eco friendly - using green alternatives alongside traditional options.

Adaptable and expandable power to accommodate changing uses.

EasyGrid – hybrid off grid power unit

Our EasyGrid range brings off grid power solutions to homes and businesses without a mains grid connection at a reasonable cost. Rather than having to source separate components and have a bespoke system designed, our EasyGrid series offers a pre-configured, self-contained unit built from durable, high quality components; fully tested and ready to install. The EasyGrid enclosures are made from powder coated steel; allowing them to be installed either inside or outside depending on requirements. Suitable for installation worldwide the EasyGrid range addresses off grid power needs and can be installed by a competent local electrician.

 

How does it work?

Our EasyGrid units connect to your solar array, they also have a connection for a generator. The EasyGrid supply utilises energy from the solar array to charge the batteries, where energy will be stored until needed. The array then tops up the batteries as the power is used. The system can also support additional loads to those listed when connected to a generator. In addition, if a generator is connected and the batteries are depleted and no solar power is available, the system will send a start signal to the generator to provide power and charge the batteries.

Available in five sizes, EasyGrid 3000, EasyGrid 5000, EasyGrid 10000, EasyGrid 30000 and EasyGrid 45000.

SiteGrid – hybrid power system

SiteGrid, our hybrid power system offers a convenient and efficient method of delivering power to any construction environment without a grid connection. Whether a site needs power for lighting, a welfare cabin or equipment SiteGrid will deliver power far more efficiently than a generator alone.

SiteGrid utilises generator power, and renewables if available, to store power in a sophisticated battery bank with a dedicated monitoring & control system, delivering silent power from the battery when needed. The generator will only be started when loads demand more power or, to top up the battery. Significantly reducing emissions, the size of generator required and fuel costs.

In addition, for intelligent power management, SiteGrid has an optional Energy Management Unit (EMU) which allows six separate loads to be fed independently and programmed with their own unique schedules.

Containerised System – semi bespoke hybrid power

Many remote sites have no ready access to the grid. Our containerised systems can supply all the power required to provide reliable power at a low cost. With our Containerised systems we offer a semi-bespoke design service to ensure that each site gets the exact off grid power solution it requires.

Across all markets companies are looking to reduce their operating costs to remain competitive, by installing efficient off grid systems companies can lower their fuel bills, enjoy lower capital start up costs, and purchase power that is mobile, adaptable and expandable.

Renewable energy as part of an off grid system also helps business address many of the environmental policies they have in place.

The use of our proprietary control system maximises the efficiency of the whole system monitoring battery capacity, state of charge, battery current, solar and wind generation. It will automatically calculate when and if to run the generator, either to boost the power during peak demands,or to top up the charge in the batteries. This also means that there will be silent power for significant periods of the day.

VariPower – variable speed generator power system

Designed and built in the UK the unit addresses the increasing market demands for quiet power (a major factor in residential areas) with economical generator use. The units offer true variable power from the built in generator – it can run at any level between 900 and 2000 rpm; meaning it has two major advantages over a traditional generator. Firstly, economy -  It means that if the power demand is only low the unit can run at just 900 rpm, fewer revolutions mean the generator is using less fuel and creates less noise.  Secondly, longevity - the unit is not going to be worked so hard,  it will only be powering at the level required, therefore increasing the interval between generator services and renewals.

 

System Specifications:

  • Variable speed generator
  • Built in fuel tank
  • Batteries: 40 Kwh (Usable 21 Kwh)
  • Connect Solar: up to 4 Kw (Can be expanded with optional upgrade)
