Solar is an important component of any off-grid solution, providing clean renewable power throughout the year. However, locations above the 55oN latitude experience a dramatic reduction in solar irradiation during the winter and adding wind power in these situations avoid the solution being over-sized to provide enough power for the winter period.
There are two main types of solar panels: monocrystalline and polycrystalline. In general, monocrystalline panels are preferred for their higher efficiency – a greater ability to convert the sun’s energy into power – and smaller footprint.
Power produced is stored in batteries and supplied as DC or via an inverter AC.
Our SolarBox is powering Midlands Air Ambulance helipad lighting systems in locations where there's no licensed night aerodromes.
This "place anywhere" remote power solution using high performance monocrystalline panels is powering time lapse photography in construction sites.

Benefits of choosing monocrystalline solar panels
Ultra-high efficiency design – the US-manufactured SunPower monocrystalline cells used in our panels are 21.5-23% efficient
More power in low light conditions – power input reduced on cloudy days so vital to extract as much energy as possible
Smaller footprint – polycrystalline panels can be as much as 50% larger for the same amount of power
Performance better a higher temperatures – performance doesn't degrade as fast at higher temperatures than polycrystalline panels do
