Living off Grid in Magboro

AWPS Renewable EnergySolar Energy News

Our Client Mr. Sotonye came to our office today. He has been our client since February of 2014. For the last 8 months he has been living off the grid. He has power 24/7, does normal things, like pump water, toast bread, do laundry, power his AC, run his freezer, iron his clothes and once powered his hot water heater. He started with 1 Kw and his existing batteries and a 4 kw Inverter. He replaced his batteries with 8 Trojan L16 flooded batteries and a 60 amp MPPT charge controller.

He upgraded when he moved to Magboro. From 1 KW to 4 KW in panels. He has a diesel generator for back up on days when the sun does not shine to top up his batteries. He averages 4 hours every 2 weeks during really bad days of no or minimal sunshine.
