The AA Solar Paihia 2-4-Bedroom Off-Grid Solar Kitset suits a family home or Bach with average power needs. Who uses gas for cooking, hot-water and ideally wood or gas fire in the winter. This System will enable you to run all the usual household appliances. It even offers the capacity to run several kitchen appliances at once whilst also doing the vacuuming and a load of washing.
This System is designed for situations where daily power usage does not exceed 8-11kWh.
If you need more power (total kWh) or additional backup power, we can add more panels to your System and upgrade the battery bank (see Popular Upgrades).
Every Kitset includes a free consultation with a Solar Engineer, this call can be used to help with selecting the kitset/Customisation or advice with respect to installation and certification.

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 8kVA continuous (30min) and up to 21kVA 5sec peak (values at 25°C). It comes with a 5.18kW Solar Array and a 14.2KWh 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 (refer to our website for details). This System is supplied with an outdoor battery cabinet so the battery bank can be installed outdoors. The remainder of the equipment is best suited for indoor installations, which can be supplied prewired on an installation panel upon request. AA Solar customise Solar Kitsets to suit your specific power needs and location.
How Much Power Will I Have?
Your System has fourteen panels, the 5.18kW solar arrays’ average daily power production will be between 9-13kWh on a winters day and up to 20-24kWh on a summers day.
Pro Tip: For year-round living, we highly recommend adding an auto-start generator. To 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?
All the power requirements of a typical tiny home with gas cooking and hot water. Provided the total power drawn at any one time does not exceed 3.5kVA continuous and 4KVA for 30 minutes.
- Medium fridge/freezer°
- Heat pump°
- Water pump
- Internet, laptops, phone chargers
- Suitable washing machine°
- All small appliances such as jug, toaster, microwave. Ensure they are not all used at once. Keeping in mind you have a total of 3.5kVA continuous, 4kVA for 30mins, and 10.5kVA for 5sec (values at 25°C) available.
Note: AC loads must stay within the inverter’s limitations.
- PV modules – Twenty Five-year linear power and Ten-year material & workmanship
- Inverter/charger – Ten-years
- Charger Controller – Ten-years
- Battery – Ten-years
- Mounting System – Ten-years
*All PV generation figures are Auckland based with PV modules facing True-North pitch without shading. No system installation, inspection, commissioning, and maintenance allowance in this kit price. Installations shall be in accordance with NZ law, regulations and associated standards. Systems are wired to the main distribution board. It is highly recommended that any system with less than four days autonomy should have an auto-start generator installed.
** For Off-Grid PV Systems the way you use power throughout the year and over a 24hr period will alter the system performance. Normalised profiles have been used to provide kitset examples.
