PV Solar modules:

We are using different types of PV Solar, polycrystalline and mono crystalline with high efficiency and different capacities.

Off-Grid Inverters

It must be large enough to handle the total amount of watts you will be using at one time. Start by listing all of the appliances, the load calculation analysis is very important to know how many wattages you need so you will know how many watt hours you use in a day. To properly size an inverter, consider which of those loads you will be using simultaneously and add up their wattages only. For example, if you will be using the 1200 watt microwave at the same time you will be running 100 watts of lighting and also running a refrigerator that will draw 500 watts of instantaneous power, you will need an inverter that can handle at least 1800 watts (1200 + 100 + 500). Once you have identified a minimum wattage, you will select an inverter that has the same nominal voltage as your battery bank (12, 24, or 48 VDC).

Solar Modules

Solar panels vary in length and width, cell type (mono or poly) and are often about 1.5 to 2 inches thick at the frame. They are generally between 30 to 45 pounds. We carry a wide selection of solar panels for home and cottage use. Every array will be unique to your off-grid and grid-tied project.

Off-Grid Generators

Spectrum Solar Solutions can supply different capacities of kW, these generators are able to offer the only automatic standby generators engineered specifically for off-grid use. It eliminates virtually all of the issues previously associated with alternative energy backup power options, including high fuel consumption, noise, and short product life. Instead, the generators are the answer when you need affordable, reliable, low emission, off-grid standby power.

  • Built specifically for this application, it is the first automatic standby generator to be warranted for off-grid use when used in an alternative energy system.
  • Engineered to easily integrate into the existing inverter and battery storage system.
  • Runs on environmentally friendly, energy-efficient propane gas that is already stored and available at many off-grid locations.
  • Industrial engine, the only engine developed specifically for generator use. The low speed makes it the quietest in the industry, with noise and vibration levels drastically less than comparable solutions.
  • Simplified maintenance with unprecedented 500 hour maintenance intervals saves time and money.

Charge Controllers

Off-Grid renewable energy power systems gather power and store it in batteries and almost every system requires a charge controller. A solar charge controller will protect your batteries from being overcharged by your solar panels and it will block any reverse current as well. Solar charge controllers will actually protect every aspect of your solar power system from your batteries to your solar panels. Adding a temperature sensors are an inexpensive addition that help the charge controller more accurately and regulate the charge of the battery bank.

Mounts

Mounting solar panels correctly is a very important in power production, and it is also an important way to protect your investment from the forces of nature. The proper racking and mounting provides stability and the proper directional and orientation for the solar array. There are many configuration based on individual needs and the sites architect and landscape.

Batteries 

Solar Batteries (Deep Cycle Batteries) are the heart of a stand-alone (off-grid) renewable energy system. If you are installing a system that will be without the proper deep cycle batteries, you can only use power at the time you produce it (i.e. you will not be able to store the power for your power needs when the sun isn’t out.

Deep cycle batteries provide the energy storage for your system. Unlike your car battery, deep cycle batteries that are used in renewable energy applications are meant to be discharged and recharged (cycled) repeatedly. To maintain healthy batteries and prolong battery life, most manufacturers suggest limiting the depth of discharge to about 20%. (That means the deep cycle batteries will be at 80% capacity or better.) At the very least, do not allow the batteries to be discharged below 50%!

When selecting solar batteries you’ll have the option to use flooded lead acid (FLA) batteries or sealed batteries (AGM or Gel). Keep in mind that FLA batteries require a bit of maintenance, however, they generally last longer under the right conditions.

Accessories

Proper wire sizing, safety disconnects, combiner boxes, battery cables, and grounding all provide for a safe and efficient renewable energy system. These items have to be incorporated in to the design and sized according to your projects requirements.

Solar Thermal

If you’re tired of heating water with electricity and/or gas, why not harness the sun’s full potential. Solar thermal collectors can supplement your home, business and cottage domestic hot water and heating requirements while lowering your energy bills!

Solar Lights

Spectrum Solar Solutions supply industrial strength solar powered light made from anodized aluminum for superior protection in harsh environments. Will not rot from harsh sun exposure! IP 68 Water-Proof design.

Super bright LED’s and powerful solar panel provide all night illumination. Low profile design makes it perfect for different applications of different environments and weather. Added built in reflector provides extra illuminations and light. Easy hassle frees mounting, no wires, no mess, and no electrical cost!
