    *Off Grid Solar NZ Kit Contents do change on occasion, mainly the solar panels - as higher wattage panels become available we upgrade the kits to include these. Wattage will always be above 345W, and we're happy to confirm our current stock at any time.

    **We recommend reading this article if you think you may wish to expand an existing off grid solar panels NZ kit from us.

    ***The Standard Batteries offer a 3-7 year lifespan, are 60kg each, and have a 50% usable depth of discharge. Lithium offer a 10+ year lifespan, are only 30kg each, and have an 80% usable depth of discharge.

    ^Installation of all our standard off grid solar NZ kits can be done fully DIY, as they're all Extra Low Voltage, and the inverter has a standard 3-pin plug to allow you to easily use the generated power with a multiboard. However, an electrician is legally required if you choose to wire the standard inverter into your household switchboard, and always when wiring the hybrid inverter into your household switchboard or generator, as these both involve 240V.

    †A Hybrid Inverter unit replaces the charge controller and inverter in a standard system, and allows for generator mains/input to charge your batteries without the need for a separate battery charger. It legally requires an electrician to install.
