Eskom Standby with Solar as Primary
A primary off-grid solar powered off-grid system with Eskom standby/backup support.
The system has an average solar usage of 99.9% and was recently installed in George, Western Cape, South Africa by Specialized Solar Systems.
Using the solar power that has been generated as primary and Eskom power as secondary, the essentially off-grid system ensures large savings on monthly Eskom bills.
The renewable energy producing system consists of a standby battery bank that ensures that solar power is available day and night, no matter what the situation with Eskom’s availability and supply is. The system also utilizes the Victron Color Control GX unit to allow online monitoring of the off-grid solar system.
