Is it time to build a bach on your patch of land? Or, transform a bus into a house on wheels? Stop worrying about power with our Gridfree Bach Kit, the perfect small solar system for a cabin or bus.
An Affordable Solution: Our Small Solar System for Cabin + Bach Use
Our Bach kit is the most popular of our six DIY solar panel kits for good reason. It’s the perfect kit to start with as you refurbish your bach, draft plans for a container home or to bring power to your dwelling on the Great Barrier Island. The Bach kit fits your lifestyle.
Home Sweet House Bus
Our bach kit is also an ideal choice for customers redoing a bus into a house bus, looking to provide power for two adults or a family keen on conservative power use.Check out Rachel and Marius’ setup, or the Reboot Life housebus.
Our Small Solar System for your Cabin is an Affordable Solar Solution
The bach kit hits the perfect balance between giving you enough to power your home comforts, and being an affordable option in a rural life. With four solar panels and four batteries, you’ll find the price point gives you a lot of power for less price than other companies. Unlike the leaner Tiny House Kit, the two extra batteries in the Bach Kit double the storage and mean you’ll experience more freedom with power use at night. Find out what this kit can run.
Like all off-grid living situations, the Bach Kit works best when you’re willing to adapt: using a outdoor wood burning stove to cook, switching to gas-powered hot water, or cutting back on media and TV are a few examples on how to minimize power use as you get ready to live a more back to basics lifestyle. Rethinking how power is used is important to many of our customers, as our DIY solar power kits help them reduce their reliance on electricity or make an environmentally-friendly choice.

Building with an Eye on Budget
If you are looking for the right DIY solar power kit to build up, the Bach Kit is it. Customers purchase this kit to get by during the summer while saving up to expand and upgrade to the Freedom Kit, to install before winter comes. Sunlight hours during NZ summer range from 6-8 hours, whereas winter sunlight hours decrease to 3-4 hours. We work with you to provide the right power solution for your particular power needs with either ready to go off grid cabin kits like the Bach Kit, or bespoke solutions.
Before you buy the Bach Kit, consider if and how soon you'll want to upgrade. Rather than buying one or two more panels or expanding your battery bank later, you’ll find greater savings in our kits. Sold at a discounted bundled price, they are significantly less than if each piece was bought on its own. If you can stretch your finances and expand to the Freedom Kit from the start, you’ll save.
Contact us if it’s time to expand and you’re looking for the right solution for your lifestyle.
