Energydock was born out of the need for compact ‘plug and play’ energy systems that were easy to install (all units are pre-programmed in our factory, simplifying the installation process) and that would assist consumers to overcome loadshedding, the ever increasing cost of electricity and fulfil the need for energy security.

The Energydock units are modular, so you can ‘grow’ your energy system as your needs change or as your budget allows. Some units are PV ready (up to a recommended maximum), while the Premium Range can be adjusted to support a solar array large enough to match your energy requirements.  

All the Energydock systems are supported by lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO₄) batteries. These batteries have an expected cycle life greater than 3000 cycles at 90% DOD, making these energy systems viable long-term energy solutions.

The entire Energydock range are housed in sleek enclosures, eliminating any unsightly wires and cluttered components. This makes these systems ideal for residential and for commercial use – your home or office won’t look untidy after the installation. They may even compliment your décor scheme!

A Solar Solution for Everyone

Not too sure which Energydock Range will best suit your needs? Below is a quick guide, based on your requirements and budget. And don’t forget – the entire Energydock Range is modular, so if you need to increase the size of your initial energy system, no problem – simply add another battery to your system, or another MPPT for more solar panels.  But just remember that whatever you add should ideally be the same size as the original component – that way they can simply be connected in series, giving you the extra capacity you need,

Need a compact home or office UPS on a small budget?

The Energydock UPS Range are purely for backup, and are ideal to use at home or in a small office during load shedding. Although all the other Energydock units can be used as backup, these are the most affordable units as they function as a highly effective UPS only. They are also much smaller and more compact than the other Energydock units – you could even put one on your desk if you prefer. They have two USB outputs as well as a standard plug point and an AC input point. An added bonus is that it has an DC input too. 

Have a small home in a rural area with no national grid supply?

Need a small energy system with a solar panel or two? Or perhaps you live in an area where there is no electricity at all and want to run some lights, a TV and a fridge? The DC range is your solution – these units are ideal for small houses and don’t need an AC connection but use solar panels to generate enough power for lights, TV, cell charger and even a small fridge. Each unit has a reliable battery so that energy generated during the day can be used at night time. If you need to increase the storage capacity, simply connect another battery of the same size.

Looking for a portable off-grid energy system for camping?

Econo Range Levels 1 and 2 are great for camping as they are PV ready, or can be plugged into an AC connection to charge the battery. They are light enough to take with you on camping trips or leisure activities and have a carry handle on top. Solar panels are easy to connect – simply plug in the connectors and you have an off-grid energy system that can utilize energy as its generated, or store it in the lithium iron phosphate batteries for use later on. 

Looking for a small and affordable energy system to save on electricity costs?

If you are wanting to install a small energy system to save on energy costs as well as act as a backup at home, or even at the office, then you should consider the Econo Range. These systems are PV ready and have a built-in MPPT. They can be used as backup systems, off-grid systems and even hybrid systems, up to 5 kVA. They have a high frequency inverter installed, making them more affordable than their Victron counterparts, but certainly no less effective.

Need a backup system for your home or office that can run larger appliances and equipment during load shedding?

The Standard Range is ideal for running larger appliances and office equipment during load shedding. These units are also PV ready (up to a limit, depending on which level you select) so they can be used to generate energy too, and the extra energy can be stored in the 2.56 kWh / 5.12 kWh battery for use later when needed. 

Looking for a system that can produce your day-time energy requirements to save on electricity costs?

The Standard Range can also be used as grid-tie energy systems. The system will supply the energy generated during the day by the solar panels directly to your load , thus saving on municipal or Eskom electricity costs. The added bonus is that the system can also be used as a backup, should the grid fail.

Need a larger backup system for your commercial premises?

The Premium Range is ideal as a commercial backup system. These units are fitted with Victron inverters and the larger units have a Victron GX colour control, which allows remote monitoring. This means that you can keep an eye on the status of your energy system, even over weekends or when your business is closed.

If your commercial premises operates on the three phase system, not to worry – we also have a three phase Energydock Range.

Looking for a larger hybrid energy system for your home or office?

The higher levels of the Premium Range are capable of running all your home appliances. This means that they are ideal to use as a complete backup system for your home, or office, and you will no longer notice the inconvenience of load shedding. You can also add solar panels to these systems so that they can generate energy during the day. The energy that isn’t consumed by your load during the day will be stored in the lithium iron battery for use at a later stage.

Need a system that can take your home (or small business) off-grid?

The Premium Range can also be used as an off-grid energy system. There is no limit to the number of solar panels that can be added. Should you require a large amount of energy to be generated, the size of the MPPT can be selected to accommodate your load. If you energy needs increase, a second MPPT can be added, and even extra storage can be added if required.

Send us a quick email to find out more about these units…

Should you wish to increase the storage capacity of your Energydock system at a later stage, simply add one of our Storagedock options to the system. As your budget improves or your energy requirements increase, more batteries of the same size can be added.

I was very satisfied with the professionalism and quality of the service provided by SSS at my home in Welgelegen George, installing a solar system.To put the cherry on top, I was informed by SSS about 2 weeks after the job was finished and paid for, that I have overpaid them by R32000 and that they would refund me! I was not aware of this and they could have kept quiet and I would never have known. This reflects great business ethics and I can really recommend these guys!

I've been investigating a solar solution for our house in Randburg for the past 5 years. From all the interaction I had with various companies SSS is by far the most professional. They are the only company that was willing to do a decent study of our power usage before making a recommendation of what is needed. The level of service I received was world class. The CEO was actually interacting with me directly via phone and e-mail and explaining everything in a way I can understand. Thank you for time Jonathan! You and your team really showed what service is all about. The installation is very neat and I can already see a huge reduction in my grid consumption. No need to stress about load shedding anymore.

I like when people know their stuff and are not too wrapped up in their expertise to spend time with those who are not so knowledgeable to explain things. I had a good experience and liked the calm confidence the staff projects.
