Specialized Solar Systems (SSS) Involvement in The iShack Project - System Management

Specialized Solar Systems (SSS) is primarily involved in supplying of all solar technologies to create a sustainable environment for The iShack Project managed by The Sustainability Institute Innovation , a division of the Sustainability Institute.

An Online Off-grid Energy Utility - SSS-EPOWER - used in the iShack Project and many other off-grid projects by Specialized Solar Systems for remotely management of renewable energy.

From Specialized Solar Systems vision statement 'To light up Africa and Empower Her People with Renewable Energy'  an online micro-grid management utility, SSS-EPOWER was born. The utility is a 'world first' off-grid energy management utility that provides a remotely accessible web-based database with all the necessary tools for sustainable off-grid energy management.

Some of the comprehensive online system features include:

  • Remotely accessible centralized online management.
  • Secure dedicated fast cloud servers.
  • Macro and micro energy management.
  • User defined remote energy system switching.
  • Consumer system management and documenting.
  • Automatic and varied debiting system.
  • Pay as You Go and contract payment packages.
  • P.O.S. remote wallet vendor management.
  • Comprehensive reporting and history.
  • Accurate GPS stock allocation.
  • Multi-level user control.
  • Detailed audit trail logging.

Kheis Project - Managed DC Micro-grids

Kheis - A New Dawn - Video: Energy producing DC micro-grids are making a significant difference in many lives by supplying DC energy at the installed location to efficient DC powered appliances such as lights, television, cell phone charging, radios and more.

Using DC (direct current) technologies, rather than the more traditional AC (alternating current) ones, Specialized Solar Systems has been able to develop off-grid solar systems that are easy to install,  safe to use in shacks (no open flames), made to the highest safety and design specifications and are remotely manageable.

And because they are modular systems, they offer an incredible degree of design flexibility and threshold settings that can be adapted to the needs of any home or dwelling, or even any large-scale project such as the Kheis Project where Specialized Solar Systems is supplying DC micro-grid systems to the Kheis Municipality in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

The project aims to supply managed renewable energy and become a benchmark for the supply of basic human energy requirements that the rest of the world could follow.

The installed solar powered DC micro-grid systems are soft-managed by a web-based management platform, SSS-EPOWER  that was developed by Specialized Solar Systems for large-scale remotely manageable de-centalized solar energy supply.

The SSS20 dc micro-grid off-grid system used in the Kheis Project after a simple upgrade has the ability to further supply needed refrigeration.

The solar technologies supplied by Specialized Solar Systems for the Kheis Project include:

  • Smart solar energy producing DC micro-grids with remote managed hardware - SS20DC75 Managed.
  • Efficient DC appliances powered by the DC micro-grid systems.
  • Online Off-Grid Energy Management Utility with remote switching, payment facilitation, vendor management, solar system and end-user management services - SSS-EPOWER.
  • Product/service support.

'ǃKheis' is an administrative area in the ZF Mgcawu District of Northern Cape in South Africa. ǃKheis is a Khoi name meaning "a place where you live, or a home". The municipality is named in recognition of the Khoi people who were the first permanent dwellers of the area (source: Wikipedia).


Don't let Eskom load shedding leave you in the dark!

Just arrived: 650W and 850W PSW 12V USP inverters, 1.1kW and 2.2kW 12V PSW inverters and 1.45kW 24V PSW inverters in stock at Specialized Solar Systems (SSS) HQ - George. We also have stock of 102Ah 12V and 225Ah 6V hi-cycle solar batteries to accompany these quality inverters to make durable backup systems that may keep some of your necessities or comforts powered up during load-shedding.
