Reason for using Solar PV
Off grid site miles from main electricity connection. Choice between a diesel generator or Solar PV. To provide power for lighting and charging of batteries for power tools etc.
2.5kW Solar PV battery system was installed by R&I Cruden in 2016. Purpose built frame for the panels was erected for optimum solar gain.
Provides enough power for low energy lighting and charging of tools and phones etc. Noisy generator not required.
