Hybrid power for off grid homes
Living off grid is a lifestyle choice for some, but an economical necessity for many. The electricity grid does not reach everywhere – and getting it extended to reach your dream property can be a surprisingly expensive proposition. There are thousands of homes across the country that struggle to get a constant power source. Many more homes suffer from regular power cuts when they are on grid.
So how can you live a grid connected lifestyle without the grid? Well Off Grid Solutions can supply you with Hybrid power units with which home owners can utilise generator and renewable energy to power batteries that will deliver 24/7 cost effective power. The units are pre-configured and ready to install by a local electrician and will work with existing solar arrays and in most cases any auto-start generator.
If power cuts are your problem, an EasyGrid does not have to be connected to a generator, or solar, it can be used simply for a trouble free supply, maintaining a constant unbroken power feed.
It may be that you are already off-grid, running a generator 24/7 to supply power, well, one of these units will reduce the amount of time the generator is running by switching it off during low demand such as overnight, and utilising it more efficiently when it is running.

EasyGrid – hybrid off grid power unit
The EasyGrid range brings off grid power solutions to homes and businesses without a mains grid connection at a reasonable cost. Rather than having to source separate components and have a bespoke system designed, the EasyGrid series offers a pre-configured, self-contained unit built from durable, high quality components; fully tested and ready to install. The EasyGrid enclosures are made from powder coated steel; allowing them to be installed either inside or outside depending on requirements. Suitable for installation worldwide the EasyGrid range addresses off grid power needs and can be installed by a competent local electrician.
So how does it work?
The EasyGrid units connect to your solar array, they also have a connection for a generator. The EasyGrid supply utilises energy from the solar array to charge the batteries, where energy will be stored until needed. The array then tops up the batteries as the power is used. The system can also support additional loads to those listed when connected to a generator. In addition, if a generator is connected and the batteries are depleted and no solar power is available, the system will send a start signal to the generator to provide power and charge the batteries.
Available in five sizes, EasyGrid 3000, EasyGrid 5000, EasyGrid 10000, EasyGrid 30000 and EasyGrid 45000.
