Custom Designed PV Solar Panel Kits
Our unique off-grid solar panel kits are custom designed to
meet your exact
power needs. You tell us what you want to power, how long for and the
location for the system - and we'll custom design a solar pv kit to
meet your specific requirements.
EDC solar pv panel kits provide a professionally designed off-grid
system, designed to meet all current UK DTI guidelines, in an
easy-to-install 'plug & play' kit.
Over the past 15 years we've designed & supplied solar pv kits for
huge variety of off-grid power applications including; remote
buildings, remote lighting systems, remote well pumping systems and
We also supply bespoke solar power systems for remote commercial &
industrial applications such as data monitoring, bus shelter lighting,
sign lighting and cctv systems.
Bespoke Solar Power - Kits That Work
The problem with all 'off-the-shelf' solar panel kits is that
they are designed to make things easy for the manufacturer - not for
the customer, who has to match their power needs to one of the
The other issue is that a standard solar pv kit will produce
significantly different amounts of power in different locations and at
different panel orientations. Therefore in our opinion, standardised
kits are never really going to do the job. The only way to ensure
complete customer satisfaction is to custom design the system using
local meteo data.
In the process of designing your system, our system designers will
often be able to suggest the most cost effective high efficiency
devices to power from your system. These include CFL and LED lighting,
digital music amplifiers, as well as high efficiency fridges &
Plug & Play - Making Solar Installations Simple
EDC bespoke 'plug & play' solar kits enable any electrical
contractor or competant person to install the system. All of our
kits are supplied with full technical support (it's very rarely
when you get your solar kit, please feel free to call our tech support
guys just to say hello, as they may be getting lonely).
An EDC custom designed plug & play solar panel kit will typically
consist of :
Solar electric (pv) panel array - sized to meet
Solar panel mounting hardware to suit installation
Solar charge controller - sized to match solar array.
Deep cycle battery - sized to match anticipated loads.
MCBs - overcurrent protection & circuit isolators
matched to system - as per DTI recommended guidelines.
DC Control panel - custom built, pre-wired & tested in
our workshop - provides easy connection points for all cables.
Plug & Play cable sets - sized to your defined cable
run lengths, designed to minimise voltage drop and eliminate the need
for special cable termination tools etc. Includes battery cables, solar
cables and load / inverter cables.
Our solar panel kits are all designed to fully comply with all
current UK DTI & IEE recommended guidelines for solar
Many solar panel kits currently on the market do not meet UK DTI
recommended guidelines as they were not specifically designed for use
in the UK.
EDC custom solar kits are currently available on a two to three week
lead time - this gives us time to assemble your cables and control
board. Some specialised (larger) battery banks are assembled to order
in the factory and therefore extend the lead time to approx 6 or 8
