    Customers using the Freedom Kit Solar Package

    Below is an example of what you can run throughout a day if you are generating 9,000Wh of energy (~3 sunlight hours, Winter).
    We do NOT recommend using this solar kit for Water Heating, Space Heating or Cooking applications - learn more.

    240W Lighting

    6 hours a day (1,440Wh)

    50W Fan

    10 Minutes (300Wh)

    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). This estimate is based off the NZ winter average of 3 hours of sunlight per day (Summer averages about 7 hours). This doesn't account for situations in which you may have to cut back on your power use or supplement with a generator due to several days of poor weather preventing your battery bank from adequately recharging each day. Learn more here.

    Standard Inverter or Hybrid Inverter/Charger?

    Standard

    • Requires seperate solar charge controller
    • DIY Friendly
    • More affordable
    • Requires a separate battery charger for gen/mains input
    • Standard 3-pin plug socket

    Hybrid:

    • Combines inverter and charge controller in one unit
    • Requires an electrician
    • Less affordable
    • Allows for generator/mains input
    • Must be wired into switchboard

    All Hardware Included

    We've streamlined installing your own solar power with our DIY off grid solar panel systems. The Freedom Kit comes with the hardware you need, including all the cables, crimp connections, circuit breakers, and mounting hardware. (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).

    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.

    Equipment We Trust

    We use EPEVER charge controllers and inverters, which can be connected to a WiFi or bluetooth module for more detailed configuration and monitoring. The standard 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.
