- 60 KW OFF GRID SYSTEM
- 66KWP OF ROOF MOUNTED SOLAR PV
- 4300 AMP HOURS OF BATTERY BACK UP
Age Technologies was given the order for the design , manufacture , installation and commissioning of this off grid solar PV system by the consulting engineers Mosa Consulting who in turn were commissioned by the Free State provincial department of Sports ,Arts , Culture and Recreation to carry out the project
The Tshepong library was a newly built library constructed to replace the previous library which had burnt down and the nearest utility sub station was 400 meters away and could only could provide single phase feed which necessitated the installation of the off grid system to run the equipment needed in the library
Age Technologies takes a great deal of pride from being able to bring power to the facilities which will help advance the community of Tshepong
The system was fully installed and commissioned in 8 weeks from receipt of the order from the customer during February and March 2017.
The 66kWp solar PV system provides power to the library during sunlight hours as well as charging the 4300 amp hour battery bank which comes into operation when the sun goes down in the evening during extended periods of bad weather when there is a lack of enough sunlight and the solar PV system cannot produce enough power to run the library and charge the batteries then the system automatically switches to the generator for power as the last resort.
