Katikati Off-Grid Solar
27 October 2015

At PowerSmart we love installing off-grid solar electricity systems.

On Friday Pranay and Duncan finished installing a 2.34kW off-grid system with 24kWh battery storage just north of Katikati. Part of bigger project, the install was only for the 'shed', which Beat and Anne-Marie will live in while they build their dream house.

This off-grid system is one of a number we have completed this year all over the country and part of a growing trend we are seeing where people are opting out from connecting to the grid when building new rural houses. The reason for this is the crazy cost of connecting to the grid and a corresponding drop in the price of off-grid systems. In alot of cases we are able to install a complete off-grid solar electricity system for about the same amount as it would cost to connect to the grid. There is one huge difference, with an off-grid system you have no ongoing power bills. None!!!
