OFF-GRID SOLUTIONS

Become truly self-sufficient and independent wherever you are by choosing our off-grid solutions for energy, heating, water supply, wastewater & toilet waste.

ENERGY

If you want to be off-grid in regards to energy, you should choose our solar panels in combination with replacing all bigger electrical consumers with the gas options we offer: in particular the water boiler, the stove and the cooktop. As toilet options we recommend either our Separett dry-toilet or the gas driven Cinderella incinerating toilet. Even more importantly, you should choose our wood stove, pellet stove or gas stove for heating your house. This is important, because in the cold and dark winter months, your solar panels will not produce enough energy to supply the electric counterparts of these energy-intensive appliances. If you prefer, you can also invest in a larger system that is retrofitted to the plot next to your tiny house, which will be able to produce more energy even during the winter months. 

Solar system: 1800 W with lithium-ion battery (100 Ah x 51,2 V = 5,12 kW), Multi Victron Energy 3kW /230V/ 48V:

We offer a 1800 W system with four panels mounted on the roof of your tiny house.

 

The system includes the following components:

  • Monocrystalline Modules 455 Wp x 4 = 1.82kW

  • MPPT Smart Solar 150/45-48V Victron-Energy Charge Controller, Bluetooth communication

  • DC disconnector + fuse

  • Lithium-Ion battery TYPE: TE 5.12 kWh

  • Complete aluminum mounting structure (16 trapezoidal bridges)

  • Connection connectors - series

  • Connection connectors - parallel

  • MultiPlus II 48V / 3000VA inverter - cooperation with the network and generator

  • Cerbo Gx – Communication Controller

  • GX Touch 50 Display

  • Battery Cables

  • AN / VE DIRECT System Communication Cables

  • System Configuration Before Shipping - Standard or ESS

 

HEATING

As mentioned above, when it comes to heating anything electric is not a good off-grid option. Choose instead our wood stove, pellet stove or gas stove for heating your home.

 

TOILET

As off-grid alternatives to the flush toilet we recommend one of our four dry-toilets. Water toilets account for about 20% of the total water use in an ordinary household, and for the majority of nutrients and infectious substances in the sewer. Installing a dry-toilet instead, you can save a lot of water and the management of your wastewater becomes easier, cheaper and more environmentally friendly. 

FRESHWATER 

If you do not have access to running water, this can be solved by installing a pump and our freshwater tank, which is refilled from time to time. The supplied pump will then distribute the water to the consumers. It can also be used to draw water directly from nearby rivers or lakes - just make sure to add a suitable filter. To become even more self-sufficient, install our rainwater harvesting system. In this system, the rain water is collected from the roof using drain pipes, and stored in a polyethylene tank. The system includes UV filters for disinfecting water using ultraviolet technology:
 
Step 1: The first filter removes the largest dirt particles down to 90 µm (micrometer). You can easily wash this filter yourself.
Step 2: The second filter removes smaller dirt particles up to 25 µm from the water.
Step 3: The third filter contains activated carbon and absorbs the smallest dirt particles up to 10 µm (such as pesticides and herbicides) and neutralises them. This makes the collected rainwater completely odourless and colourless.
Step 4: In this last step the water is treated with UV rays. This is necessary to make the water germ-free. UV rays also destroy all microorganisms such as salmonella, legionella, microbes, streptococci, viruses, bacteria, etc. making the water suitable for drinking. Similarly to the freshwater tank, however, we don’t recommend drinking the water as it often sits still in the tank for long periods. But it works very well for showering, hand- and dish washing, and cooking. You will regularly need to clean this tank.

WASTEWATER

If you choose one of our dry-toilet options, it is often possible to let the water run straight out into the ground. Check with your municipality if this is fine. If not, there are a number of different solutions:
