Our affordable cabin packages and solar mounting hardware have left countless satisfied customers in BC raving.
Overview of Solar Cabin Packages
As mentioned before, solar packages are great for you if you’re looking to power your appliances in a remote area where electricity isn’t an option.
You can use a generator along with solar power in those cases that call for heavier usage such as a full-sized residential oven or an electrical heating system. As such, you will effectively be reducing the strain on the generator and saving on constant repairs, replacements, and fuel.
Hub Power cabin kits are designed to fit your specific energy requirements. You can get our standard 6- or 12-panel package or opt for a custom package to suit your precise situation.
How many solar panels does it take to power a house off-grid? To completely cover your main electrical requirements if you have a 1,500 square foot home with monthly electrical costs running up to $100, you’ll need about 16 panels. For water heating in a four-member household, 2 solar thermal panels may suffice.
What is a solar power battery bank? Battery banks are used to store the added power generated by the solar panels. The solar cabin systems are designed to monitor the battery bank and adjust it as required to optimize the production of energy. To provide the energy you need, these battery banks work in tandem with a generator to consume and produce energy.
Important Items in a Cabin Solar Power System
For cabins, these types of solar power kits typically comprise of the balance-of-system items mentioned below;
Solar Panels: These panels harness sunlight to produce energy either using photovoltaics (PV) or concentrated solar power. These may even employ a combination of both. PV panels are comprised of several solar cells made from silicon.
PV panels produce a direct current or DC electricity. With DC, the electrons flow in one direction around the circuit much like you would see in a light bulb. With alternating current or AC, the electrons follow a pushing and pulling motion, periodically reversing their direction, much like you would see in the cylinder of a car engine. Solar panels are engineered to produce DC electricity.
DC to AC Inverter: How do you convert DC to AC? With an inverter! This solar inverter, or PV inverter, converts the DC output of a photovoltaic solar panel into AC which is a utility frequency alternating current. AC can consequently be used by your off-grid electrical network to power appliances and electronics.
The inverter is created to increase DC voltage and turn it into AC to power different appliances. You cannot use DC without the DC to AC inverter as the appliance’s power supply will need AC power for correctly stepping down and regulating voltage.
Charge Controllers: This type of controller or regulator is a voltage and/or current regulator that prevents batteries from overcharging. It monitors and controls the voltage flowing from the panels to the battery.
Battery Bank: Either comprised of a solitary battery or several interconnected batteries that are synced to work as one, these perform at a specific voltage and amp-hour capacity. The best types of batteries for off-grid power are deep cycle batteries.
Deep cycle batteries are designed to have thicker plates than starting batteries and are built to deliver small amounts of pure power over an extended period of time, unlike a starting battery that will give you a spurt of power over shorter periods.
Assorted Cables and Wiring: These wires and cables connect your series of batteries, your solar panels to your charge controller, and your charge controller to the inverter. Our kits include the wiring you need, however, if you only want the cables, feel free to call us at (604) 420-7737 and we can help you find the right product to suit your application.
Solar Mounting Hardware: To ease your solar setup, we provide a range of mounting hardware from smooth and sturdy racks and brackets to cables, connectors, nuts, and bolts.
