Off-Grid Power Supply of an Outhouse near Saarschleife
Often facilities in protected nature areas can only be connected to the public grid by considerable financial and administrative burdens. In many cases an off-grid supply is the only viable solution to ensure a reliable power supply.
For the project a Xtender Power Pro Set in the smallest version with a Studer XTS inverter and a Studer VarioTrack charge controller was delivered. For the power supply throughout the year, an existing power generation from 6 PV modules provide 1.53kWp on a flat roof frame, which is supported by an auto-start gasoline generator when needed. As energy storage Hoppecke OpzV 6V block batteries with a total capacity of 235Ah (C24) at 24V are used, which guarantees a system autonomy of 2 days.
