Midrand Residential House Project

Overview

  • Due to limited power available from utility providers there is no power available for this residence on the National grid.
  • This residence needs power to come from alternative sources in order to supply power to this residence.
  • If grid power becomes available in future it should be integrated as a backup for the alternative energy system 

Briefing

  • This residence needs power to come from alternative sources in order to have some power while they have not moved in there permanently.
  • They would like to install the system in phases so that once the family relocates permanently they can upgrade the system in order to meet their requirements.
  • The final system would need to power the lights, TV's, fridges, freezers, radio, laptops, electric fence, gate motor, washing machine, kitchen and some other small appliances
  • The system should be grid interactive to accept generator or grid power if it is needed and becomes available. This system should have a full system display
