We have recently completed an "Off Grid" installation in the Brook Valley which is situated 5 min's from Nelson City Centre.
The home we were installing on was built by Hybrid Homes. The company specialise in building sustainable, eco friendly homes http://hybridhomes.co.nz/
The "Off Grid" installation once again proved to be extremely cost effective. The final cost of the entire system, costing less than it would have cost to connect power to the property. And the cherry on top…Our client will never need to pay for power again!!
The house runs off of a 3kWp solar array with a back up diesel generator and a solar water heating system to heat their water.
