Guide to Load Shedding Solutions

Finding solutions to maintain productivity during load shedding could assist the home and business owner to save money in the long run. Start by reducing the load through installing LED lights and creating an essential circuit with a separate breaker and dedicated 3-pin power plugs (red with squared earth pin). Installing a Geyserwise management system and reducing the element to solar friendly 1.5kW or 2kW will help to reduce costs when expanding to solar PV. Once the load is managed, you are well on your way to engage productively in building up a power back-up system that can be expanded to solar PV that may provide independence from the grid.

 

SECTION A – MULTI-FUNCTION INVERTERS

Multi-function inverters are suitable as uninterrupted power supply (UPS) solutions with low-cost entry to solar PV. Ideal for supporting essential circuits in home & office. Automatic switch-over with battery management to ensure long battery life. 4kW units can be joined in parallel for larger loads.

SECTION B – OFF-GRID INVERTERS (COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL)

Transformer based off-grid inverters are more efficient, reliable and suitable for heavy-duty applications where battery back-up is required. Will connect to the grid when running out of solar PV and battery power. Suitable for full household including geyser, office or workshop. Typical battery technologies are AGM/GEL Hybrid or Lithium-Ion battery banks, which are managed by the self-consumption feature of the inverter.
