The first stage in designing
& costing any off-grid solar or wind power system is to
establish the average daily power requirement (the load). We use
a form called a 'power estimator' to collect a list of what
needs to be powered and how long for.
This form helps to establish the average estimated daily loads
for both the winter and summer months. It is these two numbers
that the design of any stand-alone power system is based on.
We recommend using the information
provided over the proceeding pages to help keep the power
requirements as low as possible. Each watt of power used will
increase the size and price of system required.
