What is a solar kit ?
A solar kit contains of items that you need in order to install your solar energy system for your house or business.

Types two of solar kits you can find from our store:
-Hybrid solar power kit
-Off-grid solar power kit

Hybrid Solar kit

Hybrid solar systems are more practical as they offer the best of both worlds. This system allows you to use electricity supplied by Eskom with the ability to store your excess solar energy in your battery for later use. If for instance your house uses a 1000 watts, your inverter will take 500 watts from your batteries & solar panels. The remaining 500 watts will come from the grid.

Off-grid Solar kit

This system purely relies on batteries and solar panels for power. This system can come in handy for people living in remote areas with limited access to the grid. While this system is ideal for a country like South Africa where electricity tariffs are consistently increasing, it is however not financially feasible for most clients.

What comes with our solar kit ?

Solar panels– It goes without saying that the solar panels are the primary component of every solar kit.

Inverter– The solar panels create energy in direct current form, so an inverter comes in handy to change it into alternating current. Note that inverters are different and depend on the solar power system kit you buy.

Mounting system -The mounting system is essential and a solar panel kit is incomplete without it. It combines items such as cables, mounting structures and other accessories that are required in the installation of you system.

Charge controller- Is also known as a charge regulator and ensures that your batteries do not get overcharged.

 What to consider When Buying a Solar Power System Kit? 

•    Total energy load needed
•    Should allow future upgrading
•    Must be a certified product

When buying a solar panel kit, make sure you get one that offer the best performance. This means considering your needs before you decide which kit to buy. Find the best solar power kit for your home or business and enjoy independence and freedom a lifetime.

So…browse through our full range of solar power system kits to meet any requirement you may have. Let us guide you through this confusing process and put power back into your hands!

Don’t want an electric bill at all? An off-grid system is designed for the power needs of mid-to-large size homes, going off the grid.  Puri Solutions has a good selection of Off-Grid Solar Systems.  Our Off-Grid Cabin Solar Systems is perfect for the scaled-down power needs of small homes and remote cabins, going off the grid.

An off-grid system works independently without support from the grid. An off-grid system works with batteries, a grid box, a charge controller, and a mounting system. This type of solar is self-sufficient and works perfectly in remote areas without any power grid. It can also be used where loading shedding is common and can affect the performance of a business. Off-grid, solar is an economical and excellent long-term solution to overcome power problems.

What Makes Off-Grid Solar System an Ideal Choice?

The solar system does not need the grid to function, instead it generates enough power from solar panels which is stored into a battery bank. Off grid systems works perfectly in remote areas with grid Failures or shutdown or if the client wishes to remove the local power grid.

Components off Grid Solar Kit

Living off the grid requires you to buy a system that has all the essential components. You will find them in the market, and the wide variety available ensures you find one that suits your power needs perfectly. Here are components that must be in any off-grid power system which you can buy from our store.

  1. Solar Panels

Solar panels make an integral part of your solar system regardless of the type you choose to buy. These are the devices that change sunlight into electrical power. A significant percentage of modern panels come with silicon photovoltaic or PV cells—the cells are connected to adjacent panels using direct current cables. However, the amount of energy generated by the panels depends on the tilt angle and orientation of the panels. Besides, the solar panels’ quality and surrounding conditions such as temperature, shading, or dirt can also affect their efficiency.

  1. Solar Inverters

Most of the electronics and appliances used in homes and offices can only use alternating current. Since solar panels do not generate this type of current, you need an inverter to convert direct current into the usable current. Off-grid power systems require a standalone inverter.

  1. Solar batteries

An off-grid system is not connected to the traditional electricity grid, so it requires batteries. This is where they store energy obtained from the light via the solar panels. The stored energy comes in handy when there is no sunshine or at night.

  1. Charger controllers

Charge controllers are used to regulating energy flow from the solar panels to the batteries. It helps preserve the batteries by preventing overcharging. With healthy and robust solar batteries, the performance of the system is maximized.

  1. Backup Generator

Not every off grid solar kit comes with a backup generator. The batteries store energy, and it is therefore not compulsory to have another backup. However, if your home or company consumes plenty of power in a day, a backup generator is reliable to keep the flow of energy consistent and efficient.

Hybrid” in solar terms refers to a combination of both solar and electricity which is connected on the grid system. This type of solar system is the best of both worlds, it combines both grid-tied and off-grid solar systems. Some call this system off-grid solar with a utility backup power, and sometimes a grid-tied system with extra batteries to store the energy.


Benefits of using a Hybrid solar system.

  1. It less costly
    The hybrid solar system is generally cheaper compared to the off-grid solar system. This is because it does not require a backup generator and the battery bank’s capacity can also be downsized.
  2. It comes with a smart solar
    The introduction of this solar system into the markets and has acted as an eye-opener to many. Moreover, this has sprouted many exciting innovations. The new inverters installed in the Hybrid system can allow homeowners to explore the advantages of the changes in the utility electricity rates throughout the day. Using a hybrid solar system helps you regulate when to use most of the power and when not. For instance, solar panels tend to release a lot of electricity during noon, which is not long before electricity peaks. With Hybrid, all you do is program your system to consume a lot of power during the peak hours. Alternatively, you can decide to store the excess electricity in the batteries and on the utility grid so that you start using it when you are paid enough.

Grid-tied solar system

A grid-tied solar system is a solar system that is connected to the utility power grid. The market uses different terms to describe the same concept, such as on-grid, grid intertie, and utility-interactive.

Advantages of a Grid-tied system

  1. It uses net metering and therefore saves money

This solar system uses efficiency rates, net metering, and, most notably, a lower installation cost. Unlike this system, an off-grid solar system requires a lot of equipment, including batteries and other stand-alone equipment, which adds many expenses. This makes the grid tied solar system cheaper and simple to install. Usually, solar panels generate a lot of electricity than required. The net metering with a grid tied system helps homeowners store the excess electricity in the utility grid instead of storing it in its batteries.

  1. The utility grid is a virtual battery.

Electricity in its form, must be used in real-time. Still, fortunately there is also an option to temporarily store the electricity in other forms such as energy for instance as chemical energy in batteries. The electric power grid serves as a battery that needs no maintenance or replacement. This makes it more efficient and affordable than conventional battery systems. Additionally, the grid tied system offers accessibility to backup power from the utility grid to be used if the solar system stops working for some reason.

Equipment used for grid tied solar systems

All the solar systems use almost similar equipment except for a few key differences in some equipment. Below are some of the components that normal grid-tied solar panels depend on

  1. Grid-tie inverter

Solar inverters are used to control the electrical energy and current expected from the solar panels. The Direct Current coming for the solar panels is converted into Alternating Current, the current used by most electrical appliances. Additionally, grid-tie inverters are used to synchronize the frequency and phase of the current and ensure that it fits in the utility grid. If the voltage coming out is excess, it is adjusted so that the excess flows outwards to the grid.

  1. Micro inverters

These are found at the back of every solar panel. Micro inverters are said to be more expensive but with high-efficiency rates. Therefore, most people prefer to use them instead of a central inverter taking on the entire solar array.

  1. Power Meter

Net metering requires that the solar panel power meter is compatible with it for it to work efficiently. The net meter can measure the power going from the grid to the house and back to the grid.

To sum up, the grid-tied solar system is one of the three solar systems. Unlike the off-grid and hybrid, it is connected to the utility power grid. It is the best to get for the homeowners with a tight budget because once you have it, you will save a lot of money due to its low maintenance cost and other advantages it comes with.

Flexible Solar Panels

Flexible solar panels have gained popularity in the last few decades due to their unique characteristics. They include the panel’s versatility and portability as they are lightweight. They can be moved from one place to another anytime effortlessly. Also, flexible panels are foldable and can be rolled, which is impossible with other solar panels which are usually rigid. These flexible solar panels are more suitable for surfaces that are not flat. This includes a camper’s roof or a boat’s deck. They fit almost any area due to their flexibility.

Most buyers prefer flexible solar panels despite being less efficient than rigid silicon solar panels. This is because the advantages outweigh the cons. Their production cost is lower, making the end products affordable. These panels are not produced in any different way; they are manufactured using a method known as roll-on-roll that enables fast mass production. It is possible to produce up to 100 meters of the layered film in a minute using the printing machine. In addition to being less bulk, the panels are also not very visible.

It takes less material to create flexible solar materials compared to conventional solar panels. Besides, the material can be recycled, which means nothing goes to waste. These solar panels can last for several years, but the organic photovoltaic market is expected to help increase their lifespan soon.  They are still worth investing in as their flexibility is exceptional.

Flexible solar panels come with photovoltaic panels, which enable electricity production via solar radiation. They have polycrystalline or monocrystalline cells, just like those in rigid solar systems. However, they are small with low power ranging from 20W up to 200W. What makes them stand out is their incredible flexibility; they are bendable depending on their models, and this gives users a lot of possibilities.

The flexibility goes up to 60 inches and makes it possible to use on campers, boats, caravans, or cars. This would be impossible with conventional solar systems. The simplicity of flexible panels allows effortless installation. Sometimes they are hung with an adhesive or fixed temporary and can be moved when necessary. However, they must be placed on a roof to capture the sun’s rays as the vehicle, boat, or RV moves. Though they still capture energy even with the sun veiled. This ensures there is enough electricity by the time the sun goes down.

Since flexible panel systems have limited electricity production, they can only be used for self-consumption. The electricity produced cannot be resold or shared with other households. In fact, they come in handy where a few electrical appliances are used or when camping, RVing, or enjoying some time away from home. The panels may not be ideal for a home with many appliances and systems that require electricity to run smoothly.

Flexible solar panels are a perfect on-the-go solution making them a popular choice for people who love camping and spending plenty of time outdoor, rather than for a permanent home or business.

Solar panels are now available in many different types, however we will discuss the two main type of panels available in the market below .

Solar Panel Types

Solar panels can be polycrystalline or monocrystalline, with each one having its own characteristics..

Polycrystalline and Monocrystalline Panels

Poly and mono solar panels are made from thin silicon wafers arranged in a series. Manufacturers arrange them in columns and rows to form a rectangle, then coat them with a glass sheet and frame them together.

What makes mono and polycrystalline panels different? Although they are made from similar material, the silicon structure tells them apart. Monocrystalline panels the silicon put in bars while polycrystalline panels are made using a structure comprised of silicon which is melted arranged into fragments.

There is also a difference in terms of how they look. Monocrystalline cells are black in colour due to the light’s interaction with the pure crystal, while polycrystalline panels are somewhat dark bluish because of how the light bounces off the fragments.

Back sheets and frames for polycrystalline panels tend to be silver while monocrystalline tend to be white or silver.

Efficiency and Power Rating

Among the two most popular types of solar panels, the monocrystalline panels have the highest power and efficiency rating. They can perform up to 10-20% better than polycrystalline panels in high ambient temperatures.

Batteries

Batteries are essentially used to store energy from solar panels. They allow you to use energy at later stage when your solar panels can no longer produce any energy which is usually at night or during gloomy weather conditions. 

Lithium-ion batteries vs lead-acid batteries

Lead acid

This type of battery has been around for over 50 years, they are the most common type of deep cycle solar battery. In terms of efficiency this battery takes longer to charge compared to lithium batteries. These batteries depth of discharge is between 30-50% daily. Its easily recycled and relatively affordable.

Lithium-ion 

Lithium-ion solar batteries have a higher depth of discharge of about 95%. In this case a higher depth of discharge refers to the amount of energy stored in a battery that has been used compared to its total capacity.  Consequently, you will realize that you will have more energy to use in a lithium-ion solar battery compared to the lead acid.

In terms of weight lithium-ion batteries are quite light and take up less space. This makes them the best, especially for homeowners who do not have a lot of space.

Also, Lithium-ion solar batteries have a high round trip efficiency rating compared to other kinds of solar batteries. In this case, round-trip efficiency refers to the amount of usable energy that you get from a battery compared to the amount of energy it consumed in storing it.

Additionally, lithium-ion batteries have a long lifespan since they are not charged frequently due to their higher depth of discharge. A significant number of lithium-ion batteries have a minimum lifespan of 10 years.

Finally, if you are looking for a solar battery hat you can use daily, it is better to invest in lithium-ion solar batteries as they will serve you solar although they are costly.

The Tesla Powerwall solar battery is one of the leading batteries in the market.

Most homeowners in South Africa are excited by the Tesla powerwall, which comes with unprecedented capabilities to store power. Tesla powerwall is such an amazing lithium-ion battery that can serve your home with energy to power all your appliances whenever you need it.

Solar Charge Controllers

The solar charge controller switch also known as a changeover control or solar change regulator prevent batteries from overcharging or being completely drained. Note that, if you overcharge your battery it can heat up and explode posing a safety risk. Consequently, the controller regulates the rate of discharge from your batteries to match your required power for your house or business.

Here are the two types of solar controllers you can find from our store:

Pulse Width Modulation

PMW solar charge controller controls energy from flowing back to a battery by reducing current gradually. PMW charge controllers offer many short pulses of charging to your battery. When your battery is full, Pulse width modulation controllers will continue supplying a little amount of current to keep your battery in a complete state. The two- stage regulating process is the best fit for systems that experience minimal energy use. PMW controllers are ideal for small scale areas since batteries, and solar panels used in those areas must have matching voltages.

Maximum Power Point Tracking

MPPT charge controllers are the best in using the full current of your solar panels in charging batteries. Under the MPPT charge controller, power is drawn out of the solar panel at maximum voltage. Additionally, MPPT controllers also limit output by ensuring that your batteries are not overcharged. Moreover, these controllers adjust and monitor their input to control the current produced by your solar system. As a result, the overall current output increases, and the efficiency rating may be higher. For instance, when the weather is cloudy, the MPPT charge solar controller reduces the amount of power drawn. Consequently, a desirable amount of voltage is maintained at your solar panel. Conversely, during sunny days, MPPT controllers will allow a lot of currents to be released from the solar panel.

Benefits of charge controller

Load control

Some of the solar charge controllers can turn on automatically a connected load for instance, set of lights after solar panels stop supplying power.

System monitoring.

If you have a good charge controller, you can easily know the load on the system and the state of your battery. Additionally, some solar charge controllers have an in-built display or smartphone app that allows you to control the controller using a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Controls flow of electricity into a battery bank

Typically, when your battery is low you will wish for a high flow of current to charge your battery quickly. When it is almost full, you will have low flow. Additionally, when your battery is fully charged you will wish to have a small flow of current to keep your battery full.

Prevents backflow of electricity during cloudy days

Typically, electricity flows from high to low potential. As a result, if you have a solar panel system that has a battery there will be a higher tendency of electricity to flow from the batteries to your solar panels. Such a reverse process usually happens when your solar panels are not generating power. Although solar panels should have a blocking diode for preventing the reverse process some inexpensive solar panels cannot control the process. However, when you have solar charge controllers, they will only allow an electric current to flow from solar panels into batteries. This prevents your batteries from being drained during cloudy days.

Inverters

An inverter is a very important part of your solar system. its basic function is to convert the direct current(DC ) power that solar panels create into alternating current (AC) which is the power that is usable in our homes or businesses.

 There are three main solar inverters off grid, grid-tied and hybrid.

A hybrid inverter is a multi-functional inverter that combines functions of a battery charger, an inverter, and an MPPT solar charger. It has a comprehensive LCD with an easily accessible button for the user to configure its operations. The button is used to operate several things including, battery charging current, AC/solar charging priority, and accepted input voltage, which depends on the

Features of a hybrid inverter system

  1. Has a built-in MTTP (maximum power point tracker) charger control that regulates the amount of charging energy.

  2. Configurable input voltage range. This ensures that all your home and office appliances get adequate power supply and are safeguarded from high voltage.

  3. Configurable battery charging current.

  4. Highly efficient design and the power saving mode enhances the conservation of energy.

  5. They are designed with over-temperature, overload, and short circuit protectors.

Unlike the grid-tie solar system, the off-grid inverter operates independently of the grid. It uses a battery for energy storage. The off-grid inverter’s main function is to convert the output voltage of the battery bank or the solar to AC voltage. There are two types of the off-grid inverter.

Features of the off-grid power inverter system

They have DC loads, which are the only ones powered whenever the system is in use. Their input is found in limited voltage numbers

  1. They are produced in different power output that depends on the type and size of the PV system.

  2. It has a temperature monitor for enhancing and increasing the battery life.

  3. Can be auto started by the generator

  4. Can be charged; thus, it is economy friendly

  5. Has a high Med surge power output, thus saving energy

Features of the grid-tie solar system
Has a grid-tie inverter connecting the utility grid to the grid-tie solar system. This enables two-way power supply, thus saving on cost. A grid is used as the battery, therefore no need for another battery it also allows for net metering, thus enabling you to earn for every extra power sent back the grid.

Factors to consider when selecting an inverter for the grid-tie system.
1. The maximum voltage should be lower than the inverter maximum input DC voltage.
2. The minimum allowed if the inverter should be lower than the minimum DC.
3. The solar arrays’ maximum voltage should be lower than the inverters’ maximum input.
4. The maximum current of the PV should be lower than the inverter’s maximum input DC.

Solar Geysers

A solar geyser is a perfect investment as it can save your electricity bill by up to 60%, homeowners do not have to worry about increased electricity tariffs or using cold water to bath/shower during load-shedding. Below are some of the options you should consider when buying a solar geyser.

Evacuated tube collectors

They consist of transparent glass tubes; every tube has an outer glass tube and a metal absorber connected to a paddle. They were originally designed to be used in cold weather where sunlight is scarce. Instead of using direct sunlight, evacuated tube collectors use UV rays. They also have heating rods which amplify the water heating process such that they achieve higher temperatures than the flat plate collectors. People who live in extremely hot conditions can use evacuated tubes in conditions such as freezing conditions or partially shaded placement of collectors to avoid wasting water or overheating due to vacuum release.

Flat plate collector

The flat plate collector needs direct sunlight to heat water. It should be clear from the shadow casts of buildings and trees. The flat plate collector consists of a large heating absorbing plate made of aluminum or copper, a good heat conductor.  It is painted or etched chemically into black to absorb a lot of solar radiation to offer maximum efficiency. Additionally, it has several copper pipes running across the plate that contain heat transfer fluid.

There are two kinds of flat plate collectors, including glazed and unglazed. Glazed collectors used dark absorbers plates under the glass which are weatherproof. On the other hand, the unglazed collectors use a dark absorber plate that does not have any fencing, and it is made of metal-polymer.

Thermosiphon kits

Thermosiphon kits are the most reliable and common solar geyser systems since they have few parts. In these kinds of solar geysers, cold water is pushed to the solar water heater to be heated by the UV rays from the sun. The heat rises and all hot water is pushed automatically to the collector’s top. After that, it gets into the geyser, which is placed above the collector. Once the water cools down, it pushes cold water back into the collector for reheating. Most importantly, the process happens without the aid of mechanical means.

Integral collector storage system

They are also ICS batch systems. They have more than one black tube or tanks, which are insulated in a glazed box. when cold water gets through the solar collector, its conversion units assist in heating it. When water is hot, it flows through the conventional water heater ready for use. These solar geysers are commonly used in mildly freezing places because the outdoor pipes might freeze, especially if the temperatures are extreme.

When shopping for a solar geyser it is important one chooses one that provides an auto-off feature. This feature will prevent accidental damage, which might occur if you forget to turn it off. Additionally, ensure that you choose one which is energy efficient.

Solar Pumps

Our solar water pump is all you need to maintain an impressive display of your yard throughout the year or run your farm business successfully without power outages.

Additionally, pumps powered by sunlight are inexpensive to install and maintain. Most importantly, they run throughout and are a cheaper way to go green. The lifespan of solar water pumps and their significant capacity makes them a top investment.

What is a solar water pump?

Basically, a solar water pump is a water pump powered by solar panels. Once you have the pumps and the panel in place, all the energy you need to keep the pump running comes from the sun. The distinct benefit you need to choose a solar water pump over their fossil counterparts is that you do not require to top up fuel regularly.

How solar water pump works?

The solar water pumping system operates on power generated using a photovoltaic (solar panel) system. The array of solar panels taps solar energy and converts it into electricity. The electricity produced is then used to power the pump.

Solar water pumps are designed to operate using direct current (DC) and are adaptive to work effectively, even with low power supply. The solar borehole pump kit will draw water from the well, borehole, or pond to the desired storage or irrigation area. The system will maintain the lift capacity even when pumping at a slower rate.

Note: For the system to be effective, you need to keep the solar panels in a shadow-free area. However, solar water pumps will operate normally, without overheating or stalling, even when the light is low.

Benefits of solar water pump:

  • They are eco-friendly
  • Zero fuel costs and does not require external power
  • Requires less labor and minimal maintenance
  • Easy to operate
  • Long operating time
  • Highly reliable and durable
  • Easy to install

Our solar borehole pump kits is a cheaper way to irrigate or pump water for domestic use. With the many benefits of solar-powered pumps, it ideal to get a solar water pump and save on electricity or fossil fuel bills.
