72KW Off-Grid Battery Primary Install in the Bahamas

Customer goal: Reduce Diesel consumption by 70% or more on an off-grid island in the Exumas. The system is currently powering a bar, restaurant, 6 cabanas and 3 employee housing apartments.

Result: The system went live in early December 2013 and is performing as expected. Expansion of the Solar and battery system is expected in the near future to handle more cabanas. The system was built into a container making island install quick and easy.

Collectors: 6200 Watts to start with, expansion as the new buildings are built.

Inverters: Nine battery backed inverters (8KW each at the 30Min rate), 6 strings of batteries with 546 KWH of capacity and two solar inverters.
