True Independent Private Power Grids

We are attempting to educate one person at a time, the intelligent ways to become Truly Energy/Power Independent in 2~6 years, using DAT Solar Trackers & Energy storage.  All the facts are here to show you how.  So, take your time and read this page first.

"Plan Nothing & Succeed at nothing", it's your future!

Not surprising that in 2019 Australia became the world leader in the uptake of Solar, stemming from unconscionable price increases forced upon energy consumers after the State Electricity Commission announced it planned to retire the Hazelwood power station by 2005, BUT instead the year it was to be closed, the Victorian government privatised it and extended its life until 2030, under the condition that the plant became more efficient.

In the following years while Coal prices were dropping, energy rates kept on rising, Australia now has the dearest energy rates in the developed world!  Be aware of what Energy companies are Actually Australian Owned.

Since the announcement of Hazelwood Power station closure, the "ACCC" & the self governed "Energy Regulator" were caught sitting on there hands, underpinned by weak regulatory control by State Electricity Commission, allowing AGL, Origin & Australian Energy to gain market domination and increase the Energy rate to where they are today!

But don't despair, Solar energy provides the quickest, cheapest & most reliable way to replace your daytime energy consumption, the final step to Total energy independence is storing excess daytime energy in Batteries, that in turn will carry you through from Sunset to Sunrise each day!

If you want to make an even bigger mark on Climate change, then invest in a Bio-Gas Digester, these are becoming a serous player in energy market, Bio-Digesters produce Free Bio-Gas from waste organic products, BioGas can be used in a Fuel-Generator to power your premises, or the gas can be used directly from the digester for area Heating, Cooking or Lighting etc.

So, What does it take to become Energy Independent ?

  1. Generate more Energy from Solar, Wind, Aqua or Gen-set, than your Consumption!
  2. Energy Storage of at Least the kWh you Consume between Sunset to Sunrise!

It's That simple !

If you have existing Solar system, adding enough Energy storage will Blackout proof your premises.

Now go get your Power Bill and enter your charges into the closest of these 10 Investment Calculators, it will show you the time & cost to become energy independent, and from that point onwards, it will be all savings!

Please Note: We do NOT supply Roof-top solar Racking, we are one of the very few offering Dual-Axis Solar Tracking units (DAT), a DAT unit is superior at harvesting energy than any other solar system, the increase in harvesting of a small DAT-4 tracking unit (4 panel Racking size 200cm x 400cm), can harvest up to 17kW or 22kW per-day peak, when fitted with 4x 380W (1.52kW) or 4x 500W (2kW) solar panels.

Remember, a system without Battery storage, leaves people enslaved to paying the full retail rate of some 300% more than the feed-in-rebate of energy sent into the state utility grid during daylight hours, and in all cases, having enough stored energy to get you to the next Sunrise, provides Total Power Independent !

To become Free & Independent of the over inflated energy rates the deceptively named Electricity Retailer's, then read "Making Power Independence Easier to Understand".

If you already have a Solar array (that's been paid for in saving), this special calculator will show you the break-even time to invest in Batteries, commonly under Three years, all done by self consuming the power you harvest (off-grid people know this), and not get stitched up by the deceptive electricity retailer rates.

From an investment point, it's that simple !

Food for thought : Have you ever made money on a Vehicle purchase ?  Usually Not - But in 95% of cases a loan or investment put towards the purchase of "Solar & Batteries", will almost fund itself in power savings alone, and after the break-even point, the savings will continue for decades, then the ongoing savings would pay for a vehicle !

Making Power Independence easier to understand;

  1. FIRSTLY: You need to invest in the correct type & sized Energy storage and Solar array, that in turn allows you to store & self consume all your daily energy needs, if not you will remain enslaved to paying the deceptively titled electricity Retailers (see this Video), that greatly inflate the actual cost of Residential energy by over 300% from the commercial rate (3~8cents kWh), for just handing you an electricity Bill, and lets not forget the misleading self governed energy regulators, who in turn are owned by State Grid!
    1. Energy Storage is the MAIN key to becoming Power independent, how you charge your energy/battery bank is the next most important matter to understand, when set-up correctly you will NEVER have to purchase energy again, off-grid people know this, But keep in mind, a Feed in Tariff (FIT) or Grid Credit is a refund/reward for what would normally be wasted power!
      LiFePo4 Battery's are best in affordability at approx. $520kW, with approx. a 10yr cycle life, where NiFe batteries have a proven track record to last for 30~60+years, during that time your original investment cost would have been returned 10 fold in ongoing energy savings/rewards, and like a car, batteries are easy to relocate! NB: We recommend you consider incorporating a Super Capacitor bank , these removes the short Heavy appliance load from conventional battery bank.

    2. Solar Panels: We first offer the latest (2019) solar panel technology, being 325W Half panel Monocrystalline panels, with 12BB (bus-bar), PERC, 60cell solar panels, as well as offering slightly cheaper top quality 6BB, 72cell 350W & 96cell 500W solar panels !   People with existing Solar are in the best position whilst the FIT is so low!
      NB: Think for a minute, if you export say 5'000kWh of energy a Year (13kWh day) to your retailer @$0.08kWh you get a measly Yearly rebate of $400, where if you sent that energy into storage, you save paying for 5'000kWh @$0.30 =$1'500 per year, that savings will in turn Pay for your battery(s), in self consuming your own electricity after hours!
      With existing Solar, the investment in batteries usually takes 2~3 year to self fund, in energy savings.
      NB: In most cases, it would be way better to relocate Rooftop solar panels onto a DAT Unit, if you have the ground space!

    3. Hybrid-Inverter: We recommend you install one !
      Why you may Asking ?  Because common Solar inverters are only good for Solar, Not Batteries & Generator.
      Hybrid Inverters allow you at any time to plug in Storage, a Generator, or even Wind & Aqua generation, it's a simple a plug & play upgrade.
      Hybrid inverter software can automatically start & stop a generator as programmed, this would normally only happen late in the evening or early in the morning, and to simply produce additional energy to top-up your batteries in the event they were heavily discharged, and commonly run just enough to get you through to Sunrise, where your Solar array will take over again.
  2. FINALY: Installing Dual-Axis & Single-Axis Solar Tracking Arrays in the Sydney region greatly increase Solar harvesting to 10/8 hours per day respectively, the further south you live, DAT harvesting will increase to over 50% more than fixed Flat panel Solar panel installation, Solar Tracking is covered here in more detail.

If you can grasp all that information, you are well enough informed to become Power Independent!

To see how long it will take to repay your investment;

-------- // --------

If you do your research on Batteries, you will find Super Capacitor (SC) and Nickel Iron (NiFe) batteries are the best when it comes to longevity, whilst modern NiFe battery's evolved, they are now 100 year old technology, these batteries are commonly reported to last 30~60+ years.

NB: NiFe batteries do not use acid & require little maintenance other than being topped up with distilled water every year or so, with very heavy use you may need to replace the electrolyte every 10+ years or so, this provides a like New battery for the next 10years!

The rest of the information on this site explains how to become unchained from the deceptive electricity Retailers & become truly power independent.   REMEMBER: Solar +Batteries & Inverter = FREEDOM !
