Darren, Mt Sylvia
Location: Mt Sylvia, QLD
Solution: Off-grid solar setup with battery system
Description of Project:
Darren approached Excel Power after deciding to invest in a brand new solar setup with future-proofing capabilities on his Mt Sylvia property.
After finding their business online, Darren decided to head in store to meet the team and tour their off-grid setup. Michael guided him through the brands on offer and the products he would need to create Darren’s desired setup based on his capacity needs.
Solution & Delivery:
Excel Power ordered and installed 20 LG solar panels, 20 Enphase microinverters and 1 Tesla Powerwall. Both Enphase and Tesla offered 24/7 system monitoring and the system and the entire system could be expanded if Darren’s capacity needs changed in the future. The system was also connected to his existing auto-start generator for back-up power.
Darren was originally quoted a DC lithium system by a Brisbane team, however this required a sizable amount of room for battery storage, which Darren couldn’t spare. Excel Power’s solar option not only saved room by using the slimline wall-mounted Tesla Powerwall but was more affordable and safer to run than the DC option he was quoted.
