Is this complicated?

Short answer no it’s not. This is the stand alone power system it means you can give the power companies the flick. Yes you heard right no more power bills!

Do we really need an engineer to tell us how it works? Ring a green energy company and you may get a complicated explanation from an engineer. The result being the average joe is left saying what the? Let’s make it easy to understand so everyone can say yep that’s what I want can you install one for me.

Most people roll their eyes at complicated explanations and then switch off. How many stand alone power systems can you sell when your customers switch off?reason-for-concept-popularity-of-solar-panels

We know solar panels make electricity using power from the sun. Does the explanation need to be more complicated than that? See what I mean!

Make it simple and people will buy it. ¬†ūüôā

The green facts

The stand alone power system is an off-grid energy system that disconnects you from the power grid. Yes, no more power bills ever! You produce the power you use.


This is how stand alone power works.

Let’s talk about the battery storage system. The cheapest batteries are deep cycle, they require ongoing maintenance, water levels need to be topped up and the gas they produce needs to be vented. They are not good in extreme temperatures such as our Aussie summer.


deep cycle batteries

The Tesla power wall are lithium-ion batteries which require no maintenance, work in extreme temperatures and have a running life of about 10 years. For a mid-range cost. These are the newest on the market. You may have to get in the queue for these ones.


Tesla power wall







The Sonnenschein are gel technology imported from Germany. They require no maintenance and will last 20 years. They work well in extreme temperatures. These are the most expensive.


Sungel batteries

We have Sungel which are Aussie made. They have the same gel technology as the Sonnenschein and will last 20 years. They are cheaper because we don’t need to pay the import cost. They do well in extreme temperatures. Good for Australian weather.


If you are looking to have stand alone power installed know your energy storage system. Don’t just listen to me, do your research. Ask your installer to explain everything.

How do you find an installer? Easy as, use your favourite search engine and type in stand alone power. Check out their website and see what components they offer. Find the right one for you.

Off-grid energy, here to stay!

I saw the most amazing thing! An advert on TV, a solar company offering an off-grid power system. Wow! My main topic of conversation is stand alone power and now finally a company who is being pro active. Yes!

Do you know what this means? The word is out, now we can go off-grid and produce our own power. Say bye-bye to the power companies and high prices. Say hello to renewable energy and a fixed price.

491687765_485As you can see anyone in Australia can access off-grid energy. All that’s required is your own property, home or business. Once you pay your set up cost there is very little to pay in terms of maintenance.

Give Standard Solar a call 1800 636 636. They will get you off the power grid and onto a better way, a more sustainable way.

Produce power via renewables not fossil fuels.

I hope this info helps. Go green Australia!

Time to choose.

It’s time Australia. Time to think about how your power is produced. At the moment we burn fossil fuels but that’s not sustainable. Most people would agree renewable energy sources are the way to go.

Do we want to pay the man whatever he says? What about cutting out the middle man and paying no power bills ever!

There is a whole new system available, there are no power bills to pay and all energy is totally renewable. Cheaper than paying for grid connected power, stand alone power is the way to go.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don’t forget Sungel batteries!

Take charge! Don’t wait for the government or someone else to sort it for you. You can get off the grid today! There are plenty of companies to install stand alone power such as Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33 or Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430 look them up online. The cost $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home. No matter what you have heard in terms of cost I got this figure from the companies doing the work.

Now you know how to get off-grid power use that knowledge, please.

What is stand alone power Tony?

Our prime minister Mr. Abbott is anti-green, wait until he hears about stand alone power, he’ll slap a hefty¬†tax on it. So before he finds out take advantage and get onto stand alone power, tax-free.

Stand alone power, renewable energy & a bank of batteries to store the power. This can be used by anyone anywhere in Australia, it is not restricted to only remote areas. Use sungel batteries the best Aussie made you can get, they last 15 to 20 years. Nothing to pay for all that time, wow.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don’t forget Sungel batteries!

Have questions? Ask these guys: enviroshop  1300 30 58 33  Rainbow Power Company  02 6689 1430  Off-grid Energy Australia  1300 334 839  There are more companies online type in stand alone power, too easy.

Why isn’t everyone on stand alone power now, because they don’t know of its existence. You do though.

The future is Green!

Stand alone power! Can I shout it loud enough. Look at the ideas people are working on right now!

Rawlemon Spherical Solar Energy Generator, developed by German architect Andre’ Broessel. It concentrates light by 10,000 times and is 35% more efficient than current solar panels. Amazingly it is able to operate on cloudy days.

The artificial leaf developed by Harvard professor Daniel Nocera, has the ability to replicate photosynthesis. Solar panels charge it up during the day and at night you are using fuel that the artificial leaf made. The artificial leaf makes oxygen and hydrogen water is required about 10 to 15 drinking bottles worth, for a family home. This has the potential to replace our current battery storage system.

Do you know what this all means for Australia, our stand alone power will reduce in cost. At the moment Aussies pay $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home to be off the power grid. Stand alone power already pays for itself then gets cheaper. I wonder how cheap stand alone power will be in 5 years?

These clever Aussies can install stand alone power for you. Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33  Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430     Off-Grid Energy Australia  1300 334 839  There are more online type in stand alone power, too easy.

Down with power lines!

We have enough reasons why Australia burns in the summer. Why do we accept improperly maintained power lines as one of those causes? Does anyone remember the Kilmore East fireball, dubbed Black Saturday? On the 7th of February 2009 lives lost 119. Who was responsible SP AusNet a Singapore owned electricity company.

We lost an iconic Australian that day in Brian Naylor. Our much-loved channel nine news reader Brian Naylor and his beloved wife gone in the most horrific way. 119 lives lost entire families gone, what about the people left behind. How can the people responsible possibly live with themselves, all that loss of life.

The power line in question one of the longest in Victoria was 43 years old with damage from a previous lightning strike. This made it susceptible to wind stress which in turn caused its failure. The resulting fire went on to destroy the communities of Kinglake, Steels Creek, Strathewen, Chum Creek and Flowerdale.

The bottom line is if you have an old, very long line with previous damage and you wait for it to fail expect to be held liable for damage caused. This was Victoria’s biggest civil class action involving 10,500 claimants. SP AusNet settled for $19 million. Cold comfort for the family members left behind.

We don’t have to let this happen again, we can eliminate the need for power lines. Stand alone power (off-grid power) is the answer.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don’t forget Sungel batteries!

Stand alone power means you produce the power you use. It cuts out the middle man, no more power bills. Not a power line in sight.

Some companies to tell you all about it: Enviroshop…….1300 30 58 33 ¬†Rainbow Power Company…….02 6689 1430 ¬†Off-grid Energy Australia…..1300 334 839 ¬† ¬† ¬†If you want to find a company near you look online (stand alone power) too easy.

Now you may be thinking if it’s that easy why isn’t everyone doing it. Although I’m doing my best to shout about it, this information is largely unheard of. Even some people I’ve spoken to related to that industry are not aware of the current advances. Stand alone power works and works well, the cost to maintain the system decreases over time. No one in the fossil fuel burning industry can offer you that.

It’s time to stand up for stand alone power! If you own your own property in Australia I urge you to get off the power grid. Go green Australia! (Michelle Simpson -stand alone power advocate-)
