With a Mackies ‘off-grid’ system maintenance is reduced to a minimum due to the use of sealed gel batteries. A correctly designed ‘off-grid’ system will have a battery bank capable of delivering a minimum of 3 days back-up power in the event of poor weather, and if required a generator can be connected to recharge the system, or we can have a generator configured that will automatically start and supply extra power when required. With a Mackies ‘off-grid’ system it will be easy to forget you are ‘off-grid’!

How do ‘off grid’ power systems work?

Sun shines on the solar panels generating DC electricity

The DC electricity is fed into a regulator which controls the amount of charge

12 volt appliances can be run directly off the batteries or the current routed through an inverter which converts it to 240V 50Hz AC electricity; suitable for running standard home appliances.
