We have the aim of going off grid solar/gen with our UK home, which is entirely electric due to our location. The rear of the house faces South with no shadow, at 52 latitude and we have daily usage figures going back 30 months. I have daylight hours for our latitude, actual usage figures for appliances, ~100sm of roof and an idea of what we want.
Having wired the house all rooms are on seperate split socket/light circuits and all heavy draw items are on seperate circuits. We run split CU and already have a gen which we can switch to when grid power fails for longer than my UPS can handle.
I have a rough idea of the system we want but we want to install it in two stages. Reasons are, monitoring that the system is actually doing what we think it would, switching over the house to a split system, building work which needs to be completed, incorporating an existing Gledhill thermal store and time...
We have a day van which was we fitted with Victron so we have experience.
Aiming for 2x Quattro, 2x MPPT, 15kWh actual battery, plus VE stuff etc...
Has anyone else done a whole house UK off grid? Will Victron or other check over my design? Basically any pointers please!
We want to convert our multi sheet spreadsheet into reality :-)
