More info

If you have a modern version of Excel, you can download our sizing tool here and try out different combinations of load, batteries, panels etc.

Our 3kVA Off Grid kit consists of:

  • 1 x 3kVA Solar Hybrid Inverter (product link)

  • 2 x 265W JA Solar Tier 1 Solar Modules (product link)

  • 2 x Vision 100Ah 12V AGM Sealed Solar Batteries (product link)

  • 25m x 4.0mm Solar Cable

  • MC4 Connector kit

  • Mounting Clips and channel (2 x 2m)

Please note that these kits do not include installation.

For those not overly familiar with solar power, this kit can store around 1 Unit of electricity in the batteries.

This means that at night when there is no sun, you could watch a 300W TV for about 3 hours before the batteries went flat (300W x 3 hours = 900Whrs = 0.9 Units of electricity)

OR

you could run 20 x 5W LED globes for 10 hours (5W x 20 x10 hours = 1000Whrs = 1 Unit of electricity)

OR

a 2000W kettle for half an hour straight (2000W * 0.5 hours = 1000Whrs = 1 Unit of electricity) *Not sure why you would do that but who knows?*

OR

any combination of the above that adds up to 1 Unit.

During the day, the solar panels will first charge the batteries and after that will add whatever power they can produce, so you will be able to go longer depending on weather conditions.

If you need to do more than the above you need a bigger kit. Please contact us and we can do a quote for you.

    Hi Is it sensible to to use inverter and panels only during the day for geyser 150 l( think its 3kva) and swiming pool 1 kva with out bateries what would you segest Answer:
    Hi Thinus, yes it is. Just make sure your geyser is only on during the day time. As close to midday as possible. Just remember that these kits don't work without batteries. You will need to look at some of our grid tie kits for what you have in mind.Regards Solar Shop Support
  • Asked by Tapiwa
    on 01/09/2018
    How much are solar batteries only that can work well with a 300W solar panel. I just need to run a television and two or three lights Answer:
    Hi Tapiwa, unfortunately it's not that simple. You either need an inverter in the case of a 220V TV or an MPPT controller if it's a DC powered TV. This kit would be pretty much the optimal solution for your requirements. Regards Solar Shop Support

    on 09/09/2018
    I am not familiar with the workings of the solar power system and I think it could be my alternative in my current circumstances where I live without eskom power reticulation in my rural 2 bedroomed house which currently requires off-grid solar lighting system that could be upgradable anytime when my power requirements increase. Based on my budget, I request the detailed quotes of both your off grid solar - tie grid (3kVA referrence SKU: IE02, as well as your 5kVA) so that I could decide, based on affordability. Answer:
    Hi Lilian, we will forward you the quotes. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hi Sandisile. You're going to be better off with a proper solar geyser for your geyser. It will be far more efficient than a battery based solution. Regards Solar Shop Support

  • Asked by Danisle Mokwena
    on 11/10/2018
    Hi, I would like to know the difference and costs between off grid and on grid system, I want to power 5 lights, 2 Tv and 1 Fridge. We suffer a lot from power cuts where I am staying, so I don't know which option is better for me in terms of costs and size of the system, Please advise and if possible get a quotation. I would really appreciate your feedback. Answer:
    Hi Danisle. In this instance, on grid just means that the system is connected to the electricity supply. This is useful during prolonged rainy periods, or if you run out of battery power for whatever reason. We will send you a quote. Regards Solar Shop Support

    I don't know much about solar systems but I'm facing a situation here. Please quote me based on the items I've metione. I have a refrigerator, four plate stove, lights for the night, TV and laptops. Which solar will be suitable for my house. Answer:
    Hi, running the stove will be prohibitively expensive and a huge drain on the battery resulting in shorter battery life. We will send you a quote leaving out the stove but including the other requirements. Generally you want to avoid trying to power anything that produces heat with solar PV. Use gas for cooking and a solar geyser (which works on totally different principles to solar PV). Regards Solar Shop Support

  • Asked by Rachel Nobela
    on 25/10/2018
    HiDo you have a solar system that can generate 30units of electricity as a back up for load shedding, please can you tell what is needs batteries, solar panels etc and the cost will please Answer:
    Hi there. If you want to store 30 units of electricity you're going to need 60 x 100Ah batteries. Since they’re currently around R2,750 each that means you’ll need to spend R 165,000.00 if you want to store 30 Units of electricity. That’s not including anything else. You’ll still need the rest of the system. Usually one would store only around 2 to 5 Units for load shedding purposes. Regards Solar Shop Support

  • Asked by Dewald
    on 15/11/2018
    Hi, can you please quote me on the following. Off-grid Solar Kit - 3kVA with an expandable option to add more later (I would like to run my pool pump 1kva for about 8 hours a day and have the backup availability for lights in my lapa and a small water pump (grey water system) that run twice in week for about 30 minutes). Currently my pool and lapa run off the same circuit and will be the easiest to move this circuit away from the grid. I would like 4 panels, need solar cable for about 50m, tile roof mounting kit and 2 batteries to start with. Are combiner boxes, breakers / isolators etc. included in the kit? Answer:
    Hi Dewald. This 3kVA kit is not expandable. We will send you a quote for a larger kit. Regards Solar Shop Support
