Grid-Tied Solar on ORION’s Network

GRID-TIED SOLAR

A grid-tied solar system is an electricity generating solar PV array that is connected to the utility grid, via the distribution board. It creates free electricity during sunshine hours – and should sustain the daytime electricity load of the building. Excess solar power is fed into the electricity network (grid), and system owners are paid a fee per kWh exported.*  Electricity is not stored in batteries and the system will shut-down in the event of a grid-failure. *Select Electricity Retailers Only

ALOSUN uses microinverter technology for most of our grid-tied solar power solutions less than 10kW. We also use the latest in monitoring from 4NOKS – Elios4You – which provides realtime data on your consumption, generation and export.  Enquire today!

HYBRID SOLAR

PowerRouter in the Home The hybrid solar system is an electricity generating solar PV array that is connected to the utility grid via the distribution board, but also includes a battery bank for energy storage. The principle behind it is simply brilliant. When the sun shines, the solar energy is converted to energy for use by appliances. Energy not consumed immediately is stored in batteries for later use. If more energy is generated after the charging process, additional appliances can be supplied or the power can be exported to the grid.

ALOSUN recommends NEDAP POWER-ROUTER – a new generation of solar inverters. Providing both maximum use of self-generated solar energy, and a back-up power supply

OFF-GRID SOLAR

Steca Off-Grid HouseOff-grid solar power is stand-alone solar generation that is independent of the power grid.  It is a solution for locations where grid connection is not feasible. Using primarily a photo-voltaic array to generate power, they can also be combined with a diesel generator or a wind turbine. Storage is within a battery bank. Power drawn directly from the battery will be ‘direct current extra low voltage’ (DC ELV) which is used for DC lighting and other DC appliances. An inverter may also be used to create AC 230V – for normal appliances.

ALOSUN supplies German manufactured STECA components for off-grid solar power solutions.  Steca develops top-quality products which are reliable with a long life. They are the leading supplier to the solar electronics industry, setting the international standard for solar energy systems.

MOBILE OFF-GRID SOLAR

Mobile SOLAR CONTAINERS and SOLAR TRAILERS with easy installation and commissioning. Packup and secure panels during a cyclone or security event.

Easy to remove and reposition. Ideal for short-term power needs or long-term power supply in cyclone-prone environments (ie New Caledonia and Vanuatu)
