Bullaburra
, 4.8kW, 18 x 270W Trina panels with GoodWe hybrid inverter ready for future battery storage.solar blue mountains   battery storage solar Blue Mountains



Katoomba
, 4.5kW, 14 x 320W JA panels with SolaX hybrid inverter and LG Chem 6.4 RESU.
Plenty roof space but lots of edge shading. Panels placed for optimum solar access.

Owner wishing to get off expensive gas hydronic floor heating. Solar and battery storage to offset electricity for winter heating from new efficient air con unit. Air con cooling not needed in summer due to mud brick walls and excellent insulation. Heating in winter also slow combustion wood fire and solar passive.

, 5.8kW, 20 x Trina 290w panels with Enphase S270 Micro-Inverters
Complex roof angles and shading warranted micro-inverters. Hight of summer 30kWh/day generation.solar Blue Mountains


 
Kanimbla Valley
Off-Grid retrofit of existing system. Was under powered, not providing enough electricity from the batteries for evening use. No generator. Added two more panels to charge batteries quicker. Two existing panels on pole mount relocated with two new panels to main dwelling roof (right). Moved batteries, inverter and controller to a new shed on the cooler south side of the house (below).

Owner insulated new tin shed to keep batteries at moderate temperature in summer and winter. Owner reports they now have electricity through the night and all appliances in use by day. Yet to test the winter months.

BELOW: Old shed, an electrical hazard with live DC wires on the floor going no where and in reach of tin walls. Uninsulated tin shed a sauna set to destroy batteries. Dodgy and dangerous AC wiring to house removed. New DC and AC wiring to/from new shed in separate conduit, buried in ground. Earth stake installed for AC MEN for RCBO (safety switch) on AC circuit.
