Experience true freedom with ‘off-grid’ solar and batteries

Living off the grid, what an amazing, freeing idea! One of the biggest challenges living off the grid is creating a stable electrical power supply. The technology for off-grid solar and battery systems just keeps getting better and better. In fact, it’s our dream too, at Sky Energy, to help every Australian get ‘off the grid’ one day. This dream keeps us on the leading edge of off-grid solar and battery systems, that are also compatible with wind and hydro applications, which means you can make the most of the environment’s free energy. All our off-grid solar systems also include generator back-up, to give you that extra peace of mind. We build off-grid power systems for everything from tiny homes to factories and dairy farms. Our proprietary SkyBox is one of the most reliable and powerful off-grid systems in the world, and comes in very small and large sizes. Get in touch with our expert team to learn more today!

What does it mean to be“off-grid”?

In the case of power supply, having no powerlines to the property is considered to be ‘off the grid’. Homes like this are fully and indefinitely self-sufficient with no connection to the mains power supply.

Or you may be someone who is currently ‘on the grid’ but you’d like to cut off the powerlines or you’d like to be protected from blackouts when the powerlines go down.

Doesn’t sound like what you’re looking for? That’s okay, try one of these:

SkyBox

The SkyBox is an easy install off-grid solar and battery inverter, designed for both indoor and outdoor use and provides huge battery capacity in one cabinet. This means you can enjoy all the luxury of being on the grid while being off the grid! When you are ready to expand, simply add more batteries to suit your storage requirements. Being fully off-grid certified, SkyBox gives your home easy use, powerful and low maintenance off-grid energy.

More Specifications

Solar Compatible

The SkyBox can be used in off-grid as well as grid connected PV and other alternative energy systems. It is compatible with both solar charger controllers and new or existing grid-tie inverters.

 

No Break Supply

The SkyBox takes over the supply to the connected loads in the event of a grid failure or when generator power is disconnected. This happens so fast (less than 20 milliseconds) that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.

 

Off Site Monitoring

When connected to the internet, SkyBox can be accessed remotely, and settings can be changed.

 

Maximum Power

Up to 6 SkyBoxes can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Six units, for example, will provide 25 kW / 30 kVA output power with 420 Amps charging capacity. In addition to parallel connection, three units of the same model can be configured for three phase output. But that’s not all: up to 6 sets of three units can be parallel connected for a 75 kW / 90 kVA inverter and more than 1200 Amps charging capacity!

 

SkyCare Monitoring

Our free remote monitoring app) will display all your system data in a comprehensive graphical format. System settings can be changed remotely via the portal. Alarms can be received by e-mail.

Hard work pays off

After consistently providing our customers with high quality installations and after care, our suppliers have noticed and partnered up with us. You get to reap the rewards. Take a look.

What is it and how do you benefit?

We are proud to be a SMA PowerUP Partner—a select few companies who are fully qualified and trained to install and service SMA inverters without voiding warranty or damaging your solar system.

Through our previous high quality installations, we were acknowledged by SMA and invited to join the PowerUP Partner program.

Our technicians have undergone, and continue to receive ongoing training from SMA experts in advancements to products and technology.

Through this partnership we have gained the mastery when it comes to SMA products and why we promise quality advice, installation and setup.

Simply put, you receive the highest quality of installations for your home, the confidence knowing it will be set up correctly and an additional 5 years to the warranty making it a whopping, 10 year warranty. You’re in good hands.

What is it and how do you benefit?

You don’t install the most LG Chem batteries in South East Asia without getting to know the products first. LG Chem has awarded us a Diamond Partner for years of first class installations, minimising any product efficiencies to make sure you get the absolute best of the product. This partnership allows us to pass on excellent product warranties to you, which are unavailable through other companies.

What is it and how do you benefit?

SkyEnergy is a Clean Energy Council Accredited Installer and solar retailer. Most companies don’t have both. The Clean Energy Council or CEC is the governing body that monitors the standards of solar installations in Australia and only accredit those who meet the qualifications and do a good job.

Being an accredited installer means that we can apply for government rebates and incentives such as Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) and feed-in tariffs on your behalf. To be eligible for STC’s, which reduce the upfront cost of installing solar, the system must be designed and installed by a CEC Accredited Installer—that’s us!

Being an accredited solar retailer means that we follow strict guidelines from the Clean Energy Council Solar Retailer Code of Conduct. What that means for you is that:

  • We as a company have gone through a rigorous process to become an Approved Solar Retailer
  • a standard minimum warranty period of five years on your whole system
  • detailed information on the process between system installation and network connection
  • peace of mind that we adhere to all existing legislation and regulations, and that our sales representatives act ethically and not engage in any dishonest or misleading tactics
  • As well as many other quality and performance guarantees
