The total 120Kw system is currently running with very low maintenance now for nearly 3 years and saved the owner 1000’s of Kw/h as well as no ESKOM needed.  The farm is completely without grid power and we used only Solar PV, Gel Batteries and Solar PV pumping with our unique micro-grid design and intellectual property as an effective implemented designed. Making it possible  to assist this farm outside Ceres to become completely self sustainable.  The farm have various pumps that are now on solar power while the factory, offices, workshop and homes are power by the Orbic Blue Victron system. The generator that was used as the main source are now only used in rare bad weather conditions. The farm are showing extreme cost savings and non dependence on grid power. Similar system can be used for farms,schools, businesses that are currently being powered by Grid or Diesel. The system is also scale-able to the required ratio required by the client. Using sustainable Blue energy without a small need for carbon energy sources that are becoming more problematic by the day, makes a huge impact environmentally. In this case we plan to use at least 90% energy from the sun and wind. And only in a emergency power the generator.

The sites consists of 4 Micro grids, each around 30Kw in size. Up to 100 m3/h can be pumped when required filling the dams or providing irrigation.

The original battery bank was upgrade this year to provide more power storage for the system during evening use.
