More info

Our 5kVA Off Grid kit consists of:

  • 1 x 5kVA Solar Hybrid Inverter (product link)

  •  6 x 275W Solar Tier 1 Solar Modules (product link)

  • 4 x OmniPower OPR Gel Deep Cycle Solar Batteries (product link)

  • 50m x 6.0mm Solar Cable

  • DC Switch

  • MC4 Connector kit

  • Mounting Clips and channel (2 x 6m)

Please note that these kits do not include installation.

For those not overly familiar with solar power, this kit can store around 2 Units of electricity in the batteries.

This means that at night when there is no sun, you could watch a 300W TV for about 6.5 hours before the batteries went flat (300W x 6.5 hours = 1950Whrs = 1.95 Units of electricity)

OR

you could run 40 x 5W LED globes for 10 hours (5W x 40 x10 hours = 2000Whrs = 2 Units of electricity)

OR

a 2000W kettle for an hour straight (2000W * 1 hour = 2000Whrs = 2 Units 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 can produce up to 1,65 kW's in full sunlight (6 x 275W = 1650W). Assuming 5 full "sun hours" in a day you would produce up to 8 units of electricity. The panels will first charge the batteries and after that will add whatever power they can produce to your grid, so you will be able to run off up to 100% solar power during daylight hours, depending on weather conditions.

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

    Hallo There how are you. I would just like to now how much will you ask for this 5kva kit with instilation in alberton joburg. Thank you. Answer:
    Hi Jacobus. These kits aren't designed to run suburban houses but rather for small outbuildings and off grid huts, etc. A full suburban house typically cost upwards of R 150k or from R80k for grid tie only solutions (no batteries). Having said that we have sent you a budgetary quote & further info via the email address required, so that you can get an idea of what's involved. Regards Solar Shop Support

    I will run the Computor and 5 lights at night Answer:
    Hi David. We would not recommend run a geyser on these systems. You need to get a dedicated solar geyser. For the rest of it the 5kVA kit (https://www.solar-shop.co.za/diy-kits/66-off-grid-solar-kit-5kva-0612292609252.html) would be the correct solution. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Can this panel run a rural home? 3 bedroom, 1 kitchen, lounge and bathroom with stove, fridge and Tv, lights and security lights outside? If not how much bigger system do I need? Answer:
    Hi Ayabulela. This system will run everything you listed except the stove. It's not really viable to use solar PV for a stove. You would need to consider gas if you have no electricity connection. Regards Solar Shop Support

  • Asked by Clive
    on 19/02/2018
    How many would I need to run a 2 bedroom holiday home completely off grid? With stove and possibly aircon Answer:
    Hi Clive. It depends entirely on how often you use the air cons and the stove. Stoves are generally cheaper to replace with gas than to try and power with solar and batteries. If you used the air cons three hours a day each and the stove one hour, you would need one 5kVA kit with 16 instead of 4 batteries and 12 panels instead of 6. Regards Solar Shop Support
