Off-Grid Solar PV Power

If you’re in a remote location, or it’s not financially viable to connect to a mains supply, our off-grid solar PV power systems provide the ideal energy solution.

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), use cells to capture the sun’s energy  and convert it into electricity.  These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate electricity on a cloudy day.

In remote locations,  the cost of laying a mains cable to the site is often prohibitive.

If the power requirement is modest, solar PV is often the most economical solution.

For example, we’ve found that, for loads less than 500mA @ 12Vdc, the cost of a solar PV power supply is usually less than that of laying a mains power cable.

We have a long history of providing power supply solutions in such circumstances.

Initially, we made custom battery packs for Trinity Houses’ remote buoys and lighthouses. We then progressed to providing solar PV modules to charge batteries for the off-shore buoys, light vessels and remote lighthouses.

As such, we understand how to provide high quality effective energy solutions to off-grid clients. Recent examples include an off-grid solar powered water pump, an off-grid solar power ‘eel counter’ and an off-grid air quality monitoring system.

The applications of off-grid solar power are diverse and over the years, we’ve worked with a wide range of clients and challenges including:

  • British Antarctic Survey
  • Environment Agency
  • MET Office
  • Water utilities (South West Water, Scottish Water, Wessex Water, and many more)
  • BP Oil and Gas Exploration
  • Remote Aircraft Warning Lights
  • MOD
  • Middle Eastern Navigation Aids Service
  • Temporary and remote road signs/roadside monitoring equipment
  • AMEC Environmental
  • RNLI
  • Railtrack
  • Numerous beach huts, caravans, and shepherds huts
