Off Grid Case Studies

With off grid solar, you can live off the grid

and build your dream house, where you want!

NO Compromise!

Matthew was clearing some trees on some land he owned when he discovered the perfect house site. Sitting high on a ridge with views out towards Mount Maunganui it was magical. Far enough away from his neighbours so to give him and his family a great sense of privacy but still close to town. This was the perfect site.

However it quickly became apparent that there was one small stubbling block. When Matthew started looking at getting power to site he found out that it was going to cost him in excess of $50,000 and he would still have a power bill every month. This seemed an extrodinary amount considering the house site was less than 800 metres from the power supply. Not wanting to give up on his dream he set about looking for a solution.

For Matthew off grid solar was the answer.  It would mean that he and his family would be living off the grid but with a quiet power source that required very little maintenance and largely looked after itself. His family didn't have to compromise on their house or how they lived and they were able to build their dream house on their dream site. 

Living off the grid today is no longer just about small shacks with grass on the roof but modern large homes with all the latest electrical appliances.
