Home About Us
Our EasyGrid range offers a sustainable and efficient alternative to using a diesel generator alone in off grid or remote locations.
Our EasyGrid range brings off grid power solutions to homes and businesses without a mains grid connection, at a reasonable cost. Rather than having to source separate components and have a bespoke system designed, our EasyGrid series offers a pre-configured, self-contained unit built from durable, high quality components; fully tested and ready to install. The EasyGrid enclosure is made from powder coated steel and is fully lockable; allowing it to be installed either inside or outside depending on your requirements. Suitable for installation worldwide the EasyGrid range addresses off grid power needs for both UK and International customers and can be installed by a competent local electrician.
Sizing your solar array correctly is vital in getting the most effective renewable energy into your EasyGrid unit. On the datasheets you will find full details on the options available to you and how you can connect solar panels to optimise your power for peak loads.
We are able to supply the necessary solar panel kit, expansion kits, cables and connectors for your project. Please ask for prices and we can include this with your quotation.
5 x 275W panels in series gives a maximum open circuit voltage of approx 190V.
Additional strings of 5 x 275W solar panels can be connected via a solar string combiner box.
Up to four Solar Expansion Kits can be fitted for a total of 5 strings of 5 (275W) panels. Giving up to 6.8kW of peak solar power.
Solar array configuration for EasyGrid 3000 is limited to 4kW, 5 strings of 3 (275W) panels.
All EasyGrid systems have an upgrade option that allows owners to integrate a wind turbine as part of their renewable power input either at time of order or retrospectively. Whilst solar arrays are a good source of renewable power, wind turbines can also deliver valuable additional energy. Solar power can produce great results when the sun is shining but that may be only for a few hours a day, particularly in the UK. A wind turbine, whilst it may not be as powerful, can be producing power at any point during the course of 24 hours.
By integrating this additional renewable source, owners can further reduce generator run time and running costs.
If you are looking at connecting a generator to one of the EasyGrid range we would recommend sizing of a 2kVA – 100kVA (dependent on EasyGrid unit) which will allow you to run additional loads. We are able to supply a generator with your EasyGrid if required. Please ask for prices and we can include this with your quotation.
The EasyGrid range incorporates a Victron Color Control as standard. This control gives each EasyGrid a great functionality.
Color Control enables full online monitoring via the Victron VRM website (internet connection required). This shows all relevant parameter and historic data including battery capacity, power usage and solar input along with many other selectable parameters. The owner can also set alarms to ensure that the whole system operates at its optimum performance at all times.
The Victron Color Control also comes with enhanced generator control, allowing full control and monitoring of your off grid system. Owners will be able to see:
In addition the generator can be set to run based on the conditions such as AC load and state of charge of batteries to ensure that those living and working off grid are never without power.
For those working and living off grid there are additional features the control system offers which can enhance their environment - quiet periods can be set which will reduce the chance of the generator starting - particularly at night. Most importantly period test runs can be set which ensures that when you need the generator - it will start!
The EasyGrid series is designed to be a plug and play solution for off grid customers. They can be installed by a competent, local electrician. We have a YouTube guide to help them plus each unit is supplied with a straightforward installation guide. For customers who wish us to install and commission an EasyGrid System please speak to us to include it in your quotation.
