At a time of rolling black-outs on the South African electricity grid, AdSolar was tasked with designing a power solution for 11 new homes in a luxury estate development in the Upper Highway area of Durban’s western suburbs. The goal was to provide power generation, delivery and security without compromising the homeowners’ lifestyle. Given the complexity of the project, AdSolar selected a solution from Schneider Electrics broad range of solar technologies to meet their client’s needs.

The costs of grid power in South Africa is ever increasing to allow utilities to maintain and expand their distribution networks and generation capacity. This increase in power costs in South Africa combined with deteriorating grid stability is pushing more consumers to want to take control and go off-grid.

AdSolar and Schneider Electric decided the best solution for this project would be to implement a centralized storage solutions using a nine unit Conext XW+ multi-cluster with 10 sources of decentralized power (AC coupled grid tied inverters).
