Australia the extremely lucky country.

Australia is certainly the lucky country. We can have a system whereby we produce the power we use. No more paying a company for the use of our power. No more power bills!

In everyone’s attempt at renewable energy the best they can come up with is, we pay whatever they tell us to. Providing renewable power for a cost.

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 cuts out the middle man. You produce the power you use via solar panels, solar hot water, maybe a small wind turbine and definitely a bank of batteries. The best batteries you can get for this application are sungel, Aussie made! Thanks C.S.I.R.O. and Battery Energy!

In the northern hemisphere the solution is different, due to the amount of sunlight hours per day. For example in the U.S.A. maximum sunlight hours per day in the summer is 10 hours. In Australia minimum sunlight hours per day in the winter is 10 hoursWe have more sun! Our sunlight hours per day and our sungel batteries, these are what make stand alone power possible.

Some people in Australia are using a bit of DIY to get off the power grid others are employing a company to install it. Those that are unaware of the existence of stand alone power are still on the power grid. When stand alone power is common knowledge everything will change. We don’t have to wait for the government or big business to make a move, they can watch us make a change.

To find a company to install a stand alone power system look online. (stand alone power) Make sure that’s an Aussie company! Too easy.

Here comes crisis point

In Australia with just the advent of solar panels we will eventually hit crisis point. The fossil fuel burning power companies are supplying less power than they used to. They were proud to announce no interruption to supply through Melbourne’s hottest weather. They say solar panels have taken the edge off. I ask you what happens when more solar panels go up? These companies will supply even less. We need a back-up system. We need to get off the power grid.

Who can get you off the grid? The government? Big business? No. They are trying to work out ways of getting onto renewable energy whilst still having us pay for the use of our power. There is one person who can get you off the power grid, it’s YOU.

People all over Australia are slowly moving off the power grid. You can’t get off the power grid if you’ve never heard about stand alone power. Some people are using a bit of DIY, others employing a company to install their stand alone power system. With this system you will have solar panels, solar hot water, a bank of batteries, you may have a small wind turbine. You don’t have to pay the sun or wind for the use of your power. Using a company set-up would be around 30 thousand dollars for an average 3 bedroom home depending on your power usage. The only real cost to maintain this system is to replace the batteries when they ware out. If those batteries are sungel the best Aussie made you can get, they last 15 to 20 years! Thanks C.S.I.R.O. and Battery Energy. Nothing to pay for 15 to 20 years, what company can offer that, these ones.

Let me just say stand alone power becomes cheaper over time. Grid connected power is increasing in price and will continue to do so. Why are they increasing the price of gas, if not to prop up their profit margin. We are heading towards a crisis point.

If you own your own home or business think about stand alone power. Go Green Australia!

Climate Change?

Climate change, how do we the people of Australia combat this? What can we do to lower carbon emissions and reduce the amount of fossil fuels used?

If you’re thinking renewable energy you’re on the right track. If you want a system that does not involve paying money to the man for the use of you’re power, then stand alone power is a viable option.

The stand alone power system consisting of solar panels, solar hot water, small wind turbine and bank of batteries would be a typical set-up for a family home. In the hotter parts of Australia the wind turbine may not be necessary. In doing my research I found that even some people in the green energy sector were not aware of the existence of Sungel batteries. Aussie made Sungel make stand alone power more viable than ever. They are designed to withstand our extreme temperatures and are maintenance free. At a conservative estimate they will continue to operate for 15 years the German counterpart guaranteed for 20 years. In my opinion Sungel will last 20 years considering it’s the same technology. Sungel are new and have only been around for approximately 7 years.

If you are thinking about stand alone power the cost for an average 3 bedroom home would be around 30 thousand dollars. That’s if you don’t already have solar panels or solar hot water. After the set-up cost the only real maintenance cost comes in the form of new batteries. So the ongoing cost comes along every 15 to 20 years! Wow!

You may have noticed getting onto stand alone power does not require waiting for the government or big business to make a move in that direction. If you want to get off the power grid you can take action now. Don’t sit around complaining about the price of electricity and gas. Go Green Australia!

RAPS SAPS WT?

RAPS:  Remote Area Power System    SAPS: Stand Alone Power System

What is the difference? There isn’t one! The Australian government would have us believe stand alone power can only be used in remote areas. Not true! Stand alone power can be used anywhere in Australia even in the suburbs.

Stand alone power is renewable energy hooked up to your own batteries. You make your own power and keep it for yourself. No more paying for the use of your power.

The government doesn’t want us on stand alone power because there is no money in it for them. The people of Australia however stand to make a great saving. When people are aware of stand alone power, they will be getting off the power grid and that number will only grow.

Have a look at what digging up fossil fuels does to our landscape.9501096028_64dea0557c_o[1]

What damage does stand alone power do? None! You can even recycle the batteries. Sungel that is! The best Aussie made you can get.

Microgrid -Vs- Stand Alone Power

They want us to pay to be on a microgrid powered by renewable energy. That is a great idea if you live in the northern hemisphere. We in Australia live in the southern hemisphere with a lot more sunlight hours, very good for solar. We don’t need to sit on any grid renewable or not. We can condense this kind of system for a single user. Renewable energy plus a bank of batteries this is stand alone power. If the companies responsible start up these microgrids it won’t take long before people wise up and go stand alone.

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

Now this depicts stand alone power and those batteries would be sungel the best you can get. Australian made of course, developed by the CSIRO and Battery Energy. Why not contact a company that knows all about it. Use a search engine type in stand alone power, narrow that search to Australia only. There you are all the companies that have the knowhow to help you out. Come on Australia let’s go green with stand alone power.

 

Stand Alone Power

OUR RENEWABLE ENERGY FUTURE

ari%20graph[1]

Create your own power and keep it for yourself. There’s no reason to pay for the use of your power. Our biggest problem is that the general public are largely unaware of the existence of stand alone power. Big business are more interested in renewable energy micro grids, which of course means we will still be paying for the use of our power. What the?

People we don’t have to pay for the use of our power! The sun, wind and water do not require payment. How much do you think the power companies will charge for on grid power in the future?

These companies and others will get you onto stand alone power and off the grid.
