Cleaner and cheaper energy from solar.

Go solar. Save money.

Our solar solutions replace all or part of your electricity consumption from the grid or from your back-up generators, with cleaner, cheaper solar electricity.

We guarantee that your future energy mix, integrated with the solar power supplied, will save you money, whilst simultaneously lowering your carbon footprint.

Equator Energy offers three types of solar systems to match your energy needs. During a free on-site consultation, we will discuss which solution is best for you, before custom designing it for you.

 

Option 1: Off-grid

no up-front cost

$/kWh < diesel rates

fully independent

Our off-grid systems use lithium ion batteries to store solar energy. They are ideal for locations where the electricity grid does not reach and where generators are the only power source. Further to significant fuel savings, an off-grid system will also reduce your logistics costs, as your fuel supplies will last you up to 20 times longer than before. They also eliminate generator noise and pollution. Off-grid systems can be designed to get you through a few days - or even several weeks - of bad weather without ever running out of solar energy.

Option 2: Captive

no up-front cost

$/kWh < grid rates

up to 50% solar

Captive solar power systems deliver the lowest cost solar electricity. These systems run in parallel to your electricity grid connection and/or your back-up generators. Captive systems work best where the grid supply is stable or where you always rely on your own generators. In order to avoid exporting excess solar electricity to the grid or under-loading your generators, this type of system never produces more power than you consume. Captive systems are therefore best suited for businesses with a continuous 7-day operation. With a captive system, we can replace up to 50% of your energy consumption with cheaper solar energy.

Option 3: Net-metering

no up-front cost

$/kWh < grid rates

up to 100% solar

Net-metering means that we are allowed to produce excess solar power during the day and export it to the grid. This export is recorded by your electricity meter and credited against your consumption, meaning you only pay for your net consumption after exports. Similarly to a captive system, a net-metering system runs in parallel to the electricity grid and/or your back-up generator, however the daytime output is not curtailed. These systems can replace up to 100% of your energy consumption with solar energy at the same low rates as captive systems.
