Tell Me More:

Paihia 2-4 Bedroom Off-Grid Solar Kitset is the ideal System for people expecting to use an average of 8-11kWh/day and where the amount of load required is 6kVA continuous (30min) and up to 15kVA 5sec peak (values at 25°C).  It comes with a 6.37kW Solar Array and a 14.2KWh (12.8kWh)Battery bank.

At the heart of this Off-Grid System is the inverter/charger that provides a central unit to monitor and control all aspects of the System.  We also include conduits, cables and miscellaneous items for the System that comply with AS/NZ Standards. 

How Much Power Will I Have?

Your System has fourteen panels; the 6.37kW solar arrays’  average daily power production will be between 10-14kWh on a winters day and up to 22-29kWh on a summer’s day.

Pro Tip: For year-round living, we highly recommend adding an auto-start generator. Provide backup power during periods when the weather is bad and your total solar generation is not enough to cover your energy needs and keep your battery bank full.

What Can Be Powered?

With this System you can power pretty much everything that a typical home requires, provided that the total power draw at any one time does not exceed 5kVA continuous and 6kVA for 30 minutes.  This does exclude high wattage equipment such as electric induction cooking and ovens, and we strongly recommend gas cooking, hot water and space heating.

All the power requirements of a typical energy-conscious home with gas cooking and hot water and up to 6kVA peak demand for 30min.

  • Macerator°
  • Internet, laptops, phone chargers
  • Suitable washing machine°
  • All small appliances such as jug, toaster, microwave create variable loads; please discuss planned usage with your trusted AA Solar Engineer. The key is to ensure they are not all used at once. Keep in mind that you have a total of 5kVA continuous, 6kVA for 30mins, and 15kVA for 5sec (values at 25°C) available.

Note: AC loads must stay within the inverter’s limitations.
