Power.SURE.entry Solar Power System
The IDEAL SYSTEM by AM Solar to solar power your most important circuits in the home or business to save | save | save and to combat against Eskom power outages or Load shedding..
Use Solar Power at night (via batteries), Solar Charge the Batts (during the day).
REVERSE your Council Meter... Cancel your day-time load (swimming pool, washing machines, etc..) with this system, while your Batts are in Standby.
Use Solar power during the Day, use Eskom (or Batteries) during the night and use Battery Power during Power Outages (or load shedding).
Expand the system in the future..!
Recharge Batteries (daily)
2 x 300W panels
Day-Load or Reverse Meters
2 x 300W panels
(Batts in Standby)

What will it Power:
The system will simultaneously:
Charge / Recharge the battery bank (per day).
Direct-Drive (supply electric power at 220V AC) the building day-time load.
The Battery Bank will be able to supply a load similar to the loadsheet below..
The Direct-Drive solar will supply around 4.6 kW hours/day to any load running while the sun is out (e.g. Swimming Pool, Washing Machines, etc).
Therefore: reducing your bill by 4.6kWh/day.
The Direct-Drive solar is similar to a Grid-Tie system.
Your Load Sheet (explantion):
The load sheet is simply a list of devices that are connected to the solar system and the specifications around each appliance.
From this loadsheet we can see if the (kW hours per day) and the (kW peak) fits the System Specifications (above..).

Grid-Interactive Solar PV system. Click here for more info on Grid-Interactive PV systems!
Grid-Interactive means the system has a battery bank and the power produced from the sun can be either used to: 1. charge the battery bank, 2. direct supply the building/home load and/or 3. sell excess power back into the grid.
Grid Failure | Loadshed | Power Outage ready system!
Generate your own power!! Free from the Sun!!
Nett-Metering Ready (i.e. sell excess power back into the grid)!!
Direct-Supply and/or Reverse council meters during day-time hours with the extra solar panels (charge) added to this system.
Backup supply (during bad weather days or low battery charge) can either come from the grid or from a standby generator or both.
The inverter can be configured/programmed to operate in many operational requirement states example: .: Solar for Day, Grid at Night & Batts during Grid Outage.
System can be expanded upon in the future: Can Add additional solar panels, can add additional batteries, can parrallel addtional inverters, etc... to build solar system output and capacity. Can eventually build the system into a true OFF-GRID system!
Best battery technology used for the battery bank. AGM solar sealed cells (12V & 2V cells). Better than Lead Acid cells. Longer expected life span (exp: 6 - 8 years).
Best solar panels and inverter technologies used. SMA/Schneider Electric/Mecer Axpert & Yingli Solar.
Best-of-the-Best technology used (international leading brands).
Low Maintence. Very easy system operations.
Even though these systems do save the owner money by reducing electricity bills, they give solid Power Security (assurance) to the system owner. Giving the power back to the home/building owner. What is the cost of not having the convenience of having power or the cost of lost business due to a power outage or loadshedding??
Internet Monitoring: View system performance in real time on your computer or mobile device and allow AM Solar to monitor remotely
3-Phase: Upgrade this SYSTEM to a 3-Phase output.
Up-scale: increase system output. These Systems are parrallellable, meaning you can add additional systems in the future.
