With the frequent utility power cuts and the introduction of prepaid electricity metering, the system owner needed an alternative cost effective power source to guarantee hundred percent availability of power and reduce reliance on the grid at short term return investment.
SusTech designed and installed a solar system that utilizes solar energy during the day when sun light intensity is most prominent and at night it utilizes energy stored in the batteries. In the event that there is low sunlight intensity and batteries fall below set level, grid comes in to assist powering the house.
The installed solar system takes advantage of the high end properties of Victron inverters, efficient charging algorithm of Victron MPPT solar controllers and long lasting energy capacity of Victron Gel batteries with a touch of a Victron battery monitoring unit.
