This lead was a referral from an old Solarkobo client. After answer a few questions, his power needs and nature of the project was determined. Recommendations followed. The system designed incorporated the following:
1. Four (4) 380W monocrystalline Era Solar panels connected in 2 strings of 2 panels each.
2. Two (2) 200Ah Solarkobo™ batteries for self-consumption and storage functions in the absence of sunlight.
3. A 3kVA Beaver hybrid inverter;
4. An automatic voltage regulator. The role of AVRs in the system is to help keep the input voltage at the required level. For instance, when grid power is available and is below 180V, the inverter will not internally bypass to allow charge and NEPA usage simultaneously. So as to make up for the discrepancy, the output supply will be from batteries both while NEPA is present and when it is absent. This increases the chances of the battery bank always been drained and/or overused.
5. A battery monitor, SolarKobo's standard requirement for an inverter and battery warranty. Its role in the system is to help users keep track of the battery performance to maximize efficiency.
6. In addition to the protection offered by inverter, another layer of protection to the client's investment in the form of a surge adaptor and a DC breaker.
SolarKobo helps homeowners and businesses in Lagos and elsewhere in Nigeria figure out their power needs and make the best possible choice of all solar products including batteries, solar panels and charge controllers that meet their peculiar power needs and fit their budgets. We also have university-trained engineers who provide the best possible installation services on order.
