Rural Solar Power
Solar power systems on farms provide great financial returns, relatively short payback periods, and present an overall excellent investment.
Whether it be on your house, sheds, or ground-mounted, we’ll design a solar power system to suit you and your property. From hobby farms to large cattle stations, we’ve got you covered, on or off the grid.
When designing a rural solar power system there are several technical aspects that need to be considered, and there are often limitations and restrictions which can present challenges to effective system configuration and grid connection.
Failure to properly address these factors during the system design process can result in an underperforming or non-functional system.
During consultation with you, we will explain the different types of systems available along with their pros and cons.
We’ll discuss your options in detail, identify any site-specific limitations or challenges, provide all the information you need, and answer any questions you may have to help decide on a system that will work best for you.
When choosing SolarWise Wagga, you can feel confident that you will have a professionally designed system that meets your present and future energy requirements, is well suited to your property, and will provide a great return on your investment.
Solar panels in rural systems can be installed on pitched or flat roofs, and on ground-mounted frames.
In every situation, we use high-quality, purpose-built pre-fabricated frames that have engineering certification.
Diesel Generators are an important component in off-grid power systems.
They can also be used in grid-connected power systems when integrated with automatic or manual changeover mechanisms to enable backup power.
We offer a carefully selected range of high-performance generators to suit various applications.
Rural solar systems include grid-connected solar power, with or without batteries, and off-grid (stand-alone) systems.
Our on-grid systems are tailored to suit your energy requirements and your property. Off-grid system designs vary widely depending on their purpose.
Medium to large systems for off-grid homes, sheds, and workshops.
Small stand-alone systems for:
- Electric gates & security systems
- Telemetry stations
- Stockyard & stable lighting
- Portable power systems
- Irrigation pumps
- Grid support systems
- Blackout protection
The ability to monitor the energy production of your solar power, along with the energy consumption of your appliances plays an important part in helping to gain the most benefit from your system.
Most energy monitoring systems upload data to an online monitoring portal where it can be accessed remotely, and therefore require an internet connection.
On rural properties, the solar power system will often be installed in a location where no internet connection is available.
Solar Analytics provides a monitoring solution that uses the 4G mobile network for data transfer.
Benefits of remote system monitoring
- System performance validation
- Energy plan optimisation
- Battery sizing calculation
- Fault alerts & fault-finding assistance
- Optimising energy usage profile
