Building your life off-grid starts with the right power solution. The GridFree Freedom Kit is one of our bigger off grid solar power systems, and it's our most popular kit for small families living full time in homesteads. Put the power in your hands with a DIY kit that includes solar panels, batteries, and everything you need to finish getting your off-the-grid home set up.
Power your Lifestyle Block with Off Grid Solar Power Systems
Build a life away from the hustle and bustle of the city with one of our most popular off grid solar power systems - the Freedom Kit. It is ideal for houses and homesteads, and provides ample power for two adults without having to worry too much about power usage. Complete with 8 solar panels and 8 batteries, you will find you have more than enough power for most of the year. The kit also accommodates the power needs of two adults and two children if you’re willing to be just a bit more conservative in your power use. Learn more about what the Freedom Kit can power.
Our Freedom Kit is a favourite among our homesteading customers incorporating the changes we suggest for living with solar power. We call this kit the Freedom Kit because it gives you the freedom to live full-time wherever you want. It enables you to build a life in the country, or raise kids immersed in nature, not devices.
Upgrade to it from the Bach Kit
When you’re looking at our off grid solar power systems, we’ve created lots of tools to help you pick the kit best suited to your lifestyle. But sometimes your needs change down the line - another person moves in or your power needs increase - so we make it easy to upgrade. Some of our customers begin with our Bach Kit to start powering their off-the-grid life, and save up to upgrade to the Freedom Kit before winter begins. That totally works! Upgrading from a Bach Kit to the Freedom Kit is as easy as getting back on the roof to install a few more solar panels. But, if you can afford the Freedom Kit from the get-go, that also means you only do the installation once! Have a read of this article if you're considering a expanded kit.
Find the Right Fit with Our Freedom Kit
Maybe you're looking at the Lifestyle Kit and thinking it's got more power than you need. Our Freedom Kit is still large enough that it can accommodate all kinds of appliances and devices in a more affordable, DIY-friendly package. While it's always a good idea to structure your power load for when the sun is out, you're going to be able to run a lot with the Freedom Kit, without running out of power. Find out what this kit can run.
Upgrading from the Freedom Kit
If you are a major user of appliances and devices, you might find yourself pushing the Freedom Kit toward its limits throughout the year - luckily, this kit is easy to expand. You can add more panels and batteries, so you're not sitting on the edge of having to eat candlelit dinner! Learn about expanding your kit.
Be Independent from the Grid with DIY Solar Panels
One of the perks of setting up off grid solar power systems is that you are independent from the grid. That kind of independence and self-reliance is really important to many of our customers - knowing exactly how much power you generate and how much power you use, and creating a closed loop system just for your home. This means you're not beholden to power cuts and monthly electricity bills. Instead, the only person responsible for using your power is you. Plus, the price to set up solar versus connecting to the mains in rural areas often speaks for itself!
The Freedom Kit provides ample power but it also offers a way to pare back your lifestyle too. Maybe you're sick of city life and looking to start fresh? Perhaps going off-grid means ditching the TV and taking more hikes. You get to decide if you want to maintain your lifestyle or change your relationship to how you use power.
Setting up solar power might also appeal to you as a sustainable solution. For families with children, it gives a very tangible way to teach kids about sustainability. One of our customers, Marcia, shared that she has taught her kids to look at the battery charge everyday. Localizing power through our off grid solar power systems and solar panels has become an incredible teaching tool too.
