THE BASICS

Solar MD makes solar power plus battery storage accessible, affordable and hassle-free. Our latest lithium-ion battery storage technology can be combined with proven solar photovoltaic (solar PV) power generation.

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

There are three main parts to the Solar MD system: power generation (optional), power storage, and smart system controls.

Power Generation

Photovoltaic cells (solar PV panels) to absorb and convert sunlight into electricity. These solar panels are usually installed on your roof, but can also be fitted at ground level or even turned into a car port. The solar panels are connected to an inverter to convert direct current to alternating current.

Power Storage

In addition to powering your electrical appliances, electricity from the solar panels charges the Solar MD lithium-ion battery bank. The batteries store electricity for later use – at night or during load shedding – and automatically takes over supplying your power if your grid supply cuts out. Your Solar MD battery can also be charged directly from the grid.

Smart System Controls

Each Solar MD system includes a battery monitoring system as well as a smart system controller which is able to provide a full remote battery control and monitoring as well as the PV production and the home consumption. The user is able to activate UPS mode remotely, if a power outage is expected. This UPS mode charges the battery quickly from Grid and PV, in order to provide enough stored energy for the duration of the power outage.

SYSTEM SIZING

Solar MD systems are available in a range of sizes to suit both large and small applications. For optimal results, Our Partners will help you select the most appropriate size for your requirements and budget.

INSTALLATION

Solar Panels

Our approved installers are highly experienced and can safely install solar panels on almost all roof types. They can also offer creative alternative solutions such as solar panel carports. They follow best practice to ensure the equipment is installed securely (so it won't blow away in high winds), and that the roof mounts will not cause any leaks.

Lithium-ion Battery

The Solar MD lithium-ion battery storage system is a discreet and unobtrusive module that is typically installed in a garage or store room. Safe and silent operation plus attractive design makes it perfectly suitable for higher-traffic areas as well.

USAGE AND MAINTENANCE

Usage

One of the main benefits of the Solar MD Energy Storage Solution is that you can turn it on and forget about it with complete peace of mind. Your battery monitor and smart controller will automatically ensure your lithium-ion battery stays in good Health, and can direct excess energy to power your appliances during the day without you needing to do a thing. During load shedding, your system will switch over seamlessly to battery backup.

Maintenance

A Solar MD Battery solutions requires almost no maintenance at all, unlike alternative technologies such as generators and lead acid batteries that need regular attention. We offer periodic remote monitoring inspection to ensure all components are in good working order.
