    What can this kit run in a day?

    With 2760W of panels in this solar package and a 3000W inverter, the Freedom Kit is capable of running a lot of appliances. In peak summer New Zealand typically gets 6-8 sunlight hours, which equals roughly 19,320Wh of generated power, and in winter you normally get 3-4 sunlight hours.

    Below is a calculation of how much you can run if you generate 8,280Wh (~3 sunlight hours). This list is a guide to what you might run in the course of a day, but can be swapped out to suit your needs (within the daily Watt hour estimations). We do not recommend using solar for heating or cooking applications - learn more.

    Hybrid Inverter or Standalone Inverter?


    The hybrid inverter is an all in one unit. It combines a solar MPPT charge controller, an inverter and a battery charger all in one unit.

    • Electrician required for installation of hybrid unit
    • Installation cost is greater
    • Allows Grid or generator input
    • The 5kW hybrid requires at least a 7kVA Generator


    The standalone inverter, is an inverter that does not have a built-in charger. It does have a standard house wall outlet socket.

    • Can be installed completely DIY
    • Less expensive
    • Installation is simpler
    • You will need a separate battery charger to charge batteries from a generator

    All Hardware Included

    This kit is a complete solar package that comes with everything you need to get up and running - including all the cables, crimp connections, circuit breakers, and mounting hardware. We also offer the tools required if you wish to make any changes or alterations to the base kit, and a number of related accessories. We also offer an upgrade to have everything pre-installed in a lockable cabinet!

    This kit comes with a choice between a 8 panel ground mount and a 8 panel roof mount. We use the highest quality Chiko equipment for our mount kits.

    Depending on your setup you may need to buy conduit to run the wire through, which is not included in the kit, as this will vary for every install.

    Equipment We Trust

    We supply our kits with EPEVER charge controllers and inverters, which can be connected to a WiFi or bluetooth module for more detailed configuration and monitoring. The inverter comes with a universal wall outlet, so it doesn't have to be wired into a switch board. 

    Trina Perc Mono solar panels are our panel of choice. They use the latest technology to ensure their panels are as efficient as possible, meaning they produce 330W+ from a size where most panels only produce 270W at the best of times.

    All our kits come with our 200Ah 12V battery, specifically designed for solar usage - no trickle charging needed. We are so confident in this battery we offer our warranty based on a 50% Depth of Discharge (DoD), while most companies only warranty a 20% DoD.
