With that plan in mind we talked to the team at GridFree who helped us put our plan in place. As scheduled we upgraded to the Freedom Kit in March. Both my husband and I were able to install the solar kit, and upgrade, on our own (with me reading the instructions, of course).
Rebecca and David are running the Freedom Kit with the Hybrid Inverter at their family homestead 'Fodder Farm' in Owhango.
"I chose you because you were the only ones making solar power look as simple as it is,
Because you were the only ones empowering people to do it themselves and putting trust in them, because you were charging very reasonable prices for great quality materials, and because you were so helpful, easy to understand, honest, and straight forward."
"I have had a great experience purchasing our solar system from GridFree.
Their website is full of useful information for working out what we want, they have been very helpful with questions before and after purchasing, the system arrived well packaged, and it has been easy to setup with clear instructions. The system is working great, charging the batteries even on a cloudy day. Thanks GridFree!"
"We are really pleased with the setup so far!
We installed our system over lockdown and were impressed that GridFree was always available to answer questions. I must say, we have had a few friends currently on solar that are very impressed with the system both cost-wise and simplicity-wise."
"I've been an electrician for a long time,
but new to off grid solar. Ethan and Zed were very helpful and they were one of the few companies who were willing to sell me the equipment as well as guide me through the process to make sure everything was done correctly. Client was also very happy. Looking forward to installing more gridfree kits in the future!"
"We now have an efficient hybrid system,
With the Gridfree Solar kit being the icing on the cake. The Weekend Warrior Kit with Inverter Upgrade is providing our wider family with enjoyable stays at our Marlborough off-grid holiday home."
