All The Support You Need When Taking Your Home Off-Grid

There’s something rather satisfying about lying back in your hammock and looking at the stars. There’s an added bonus when you can totally relax once and for all, knowing that your family home and farm can function independently with off-grid power.

A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into creating a solar-powered system that keeps you self-sufficient (well almost). Find out why you need a backup and the best types of quiet, petrol generators for the job as we examine all the right options.

The Benefits of Off-Grid Living for Homes & Farms

Take a trip to Western Australia. Huge Standalone Power Systems (SPS) there are beginning to revolutionise the way power is delivered to the front door.

A sprawling grid larger in size than the UK is getting replaced with local solar panels, battery storage and backup generators, Thousands of farms are set to benefit.

Electricity once travelled from coal-fired power stations over 200km away at an eye-watering cost-per-customer. Now, the power can have a journey of just a few metres. All the evidence points to SPS supplying more dependable power for regional consumers.

Cheaper and More Reliable

These customers are typically farmers who, until now, had been relying on a fragile power network often interrupted whenever a tree fell on the powerline. Thanks to standalone solar power options, power outages are starting to become a thing of the past.

Resilience is more crucial than ever as climate change looks set to increase the risk of bushfires, whilst making cyclones more intense. The danger of bushfires started by falling branches onto powerlines simultaneously declines with the increase of standalone systems.

Getting the Extra Support You Need

All this means we’re looking at a change to a greener, cleaner, safer and more reliable alternative. So, what’s the catch?

It is true that solar power systems and battery storage are not going to be 100 per cent foolproof. That doesn’t mean it’s a reason to fall at the first hurdle and go back to the old methods of delivering power.

On the contrary, there are ways to automatically ensure that power kicks in when your primary sources fail so that the supply always appears seamless and uninterrupted.

Meet the Terrific Trio from Maxwatt

Step forward a triumvirate of power generators: the MX9000AS, MX8000IS and MX13000AS. These powerhouses can automatically provide backup to recharge storage batteries and feed in power to supply the load when needed.

Each has a pre-installed 2-wire automatic control system. These systems get typically used in solar applications. Working in conjunction with a solar inverter, they kick in automatically to top up the batteries and then stop when the charge is full.

When these quiet, petrol generators detect a power outage, the engine begins automatically and turns an alternator, the power generating unit. It feels like magic!

Here’s the lowdown on each of the 3 generators on offer from Maxwatt that no off-grid home or farm should be without.

The MX9000AS produces 7000 watts of constant power, and 7500 watts of top power at around 82DB. That makes it the perfect power solution for backup power at home or on the farm.
