OFF GRID SYSTEM FOR STANLEY
Energy Connections has teamed up with the International Institute of Dressage (IID) to supply a unique solution to run their training facility and possibly the worlds first all Off Grid robotic horse, Stanley (pictured above). The IID was founded by Natasha Althoff , now a Grand Prix dressage rider, and has set up the institute in the small town of Garfield, Victoria. At the International Institute of Dressage, their focus is on coaching with Olympic dressage specialists to help riders that are looking to progress to the next level of their riding. The IID goes by their mission statement " To inspire, educate and support" therefore providing a goal-focused, supportive and high standard environment for the students and their dressage horses.
REVAMPED OFF GRID SYSTEM
Here is one of Energy Connections latest installations for an Air BnB lodge located in Tanjil Bren, Victoria. A project to revitalize an older existing 24-volt system. The previous system had a large amount of exposed wiring leaving the system looking untidy. Our client wanted to give the Reindeer lodge a more professional look for his Air bnb customers enjoying their stay there.
The first step was to remove the existing off grid system and replace it with a newer larger system of 3.15w power output. The customers upgrade consisted of 10 x new 315-watt monocrystalline solar panels, a 48V inverter/Charger, Victron 150/60 MPPT, and 4x Power plus energy 48V 3.3kw Lithium batteries. The lodge’s natural roof tilt meant that the angle was optimum for improved winter performance.
The improved system was left looking much neater with minimal wire exposed, fewer products resulting in a tidy, safe and functional system.
