LIVING A LIFE OF EXQUISITE SUFFICIENCY
OFF THE GRID
CLICK TO ENLARGE
‘House Two’ is home to a busy family of four. Connection to the grid is possible, but Lisa and David have decided not to connect, to test the system on its own without any generator back up.
After going through a full cycle of the seasons, they have found that there is no need to connect to the grid. The performance of the house has surpassed their expectations and battery storage has not fallen below 50% capacity, even during dull weather.
The custom designed solar photovoltaic system works intuitively with the integral design of the house and the efficient home appliances.
This means that the family can enjoy life off the grid without the need to compromise on home comforts.
