Transportable Mobil or Tenant Micro-Grids

Harvesting Solar energy is something that until now was Not available or affordable to transient Tenants living in Apartments & Homes !

So, we designed and now offering a system that provides customers the with ability to install a virtually Mobile system, to people that would NOT normally be able to access Solar energy, especially in an Urban or Town landscape!

Our Micro Power Grid (MPG) units, consist of a Power board that mounts an Inverter, LiFe battery, Disconnect switches & Fuses.

Firstly: This is accomplished by using lightweight 330W bespoke Flexible Monocrystalline solar panels (158cm x 58cm x 3mm, 3.5kg each) that have special eyelets fitted for variable mounting options, these panels can also be glued to virtually any surface using UV proof Epoxy Glues, then they will never get blown off say, the roof of a Motor home etc.

These special panels are designed to be hung, tied, mounted or even glued to special mounting sheets, that can be swung over say a windows or veranda that are exposed to sun, whilst at work!

Obviously each abode would be configured in a way that suits the premises.

The next thing is to run pairs of DC (24~48V) wires form the Solar panels too the inverter, and another pair of DC wires run from the inverter battery management system (BMS) to the Battery for charging, DC wires are relatively safe and can be wired by a Handyman or Electrician, as 24~48V DC wiring is very safe, unless you are a goose & short the wires out, But that may simply burn the wires out and start a fire, just like a set of jumper leads on your vehicle!

CAUTION: From the inverter's 240V AC outlet, the power becomes Dangerous, and should only be undertaken by an experienced person!

  1. If you system can't harvest sufficient energy to go off-grid, the state Grid 240V mains wires running into your premises, needs to be connected straight into the inverter, this informs the inverter if the main power is up or down.
  2. The second pair of 240V AC wires running out from the inverter, need to connect to where the Original 240V AC wiring ran into the existing fuse power box, this now becomes the main power supply from the inverter for the premises or motor home, and should ONLY be wired by a licence electrician.

NB: An apartment or home, don't actually need to Export power back to the State Grid, unless you want to go through the process of certification.

It's not rocket science, as an example, the wiring is exactly the same as if you were wiring a mobile camper van or 4X4WD, where you have the option to utilise a 240V power input from an external power source, like a Generator &/or State Grid at a Caravan park!

After all that, you may be thinking what is required, and where are you going to fit the solar panels in a unit for example, well this is where every location will be different.

Firstly, there are three main types of solar panels that can be used, in Recommended order;

  1. Flexible & light weight Monocrystalline solar panels are the best at harvesting energy.
  2. Flexible & light weight Amorphous solar panels are our first choice when it comes to low light & shaded situations, as they are superior at harvest low light energy, there are also ridged transparent Amorphous solar panels, these are good at harvesting light of a reflective backgrounds.

All that depends on where the sun strikes & for how long, be it the windows, verandas and awnings, as without direct sunlight for say 4 hours, you are going to limit your harvesting time attempting this project!

NB: Our standard 350W or 500W Monocrystalline solar panels are also suitable, if you have the room to mount them onto a wall or even a purpose made privacy/shade screen, or build your own shutter type blinds that can be swung to cover say a glass sliding doors or windows to harvest the sun energy whilst you are at work.  In summer any westerly facing areas could be fitted with panels, that in turn would block the sun from entering an area, thus keeping the area cooler.
