DIY Off-Grid Solar Kits

To help make your journey to self sufficient living easier, we offer a range of kits to suit different power needs. An off-grid solar kit supports a journey to self-sufficiency by removing your reliance on the power grid.

We've calculated example usage for each of our kits to make it easy to pick the right one for you, and we can even customise our kits to suit your specific needs. These kits are based on five common scenarios, but not everyone's power use is the same, so you can either use our load calculator to work out exactly what you need, or get in touch and we can do it together.
