The total 120Kw system is currently running with very low maintenance now for nearly 6 years and saved the owner 1000s of Kw/h without the need for Eskom power and limited diesel usesage. Expensive eskom connection cost more than the complete PV solar and battery setup. The sites consist 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 upgraded in 2018 to provide more power storage for the system during evening use.
The farm is completely without grid power, and only powered by Solar PV, Gel Batteries and Solar PV pumping system for the large pumps. With our unique micro-grid design and intellectual property as an effective implemented designed, we achieved all our goals and have a proven success for many years , with a very low maintenance cost. We achieved complete off-grid self sustainability for our client.
The farm also make use of various pumps that are now on solar power while the factory, offices, workshop and homes are power by the Orbic Blue Victron system design. The generator that is used as the only other source of power are now only used in rare bad weather conditions and when power demand at the workshop requires more than 30kw. The system we implemented are scalable and can be adapted used for other applications.
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 and in this case we had a successful design and have proof of concept, that achieved more than all our goals for the project.
In full the orbic off grid system, is reliable and proof of successful off-grid installation at a very reasonable price, with limited diesel usage requirements. and all that at a lower cost compared to installing a grid connection from start with millions saved from initial outlay cost.
