Robert Warren mounted the PV system on a concrete pad to ensure it is
well secured in case of a hurricane. The thermal panel in front provides
solar hot water, and the 960 watt PV system provides reliable solar
electricity, stored in deep cycle batteries.
If you are planning to build a home in the Caribbean,
or already have a home but rely on all your electricity from a generator,
then you need to look into getting a solar electrical system. It is
quiet, doesn't use any fuel, and best of all, it gives you clean and
reliable electricity 24 hours a day, 7 days/week.
Photovoltaic (PV) is the term for making electricity
from sunlight. This will work for both grid connection and stand alone
requirements. We can also provide you with a reliable solar back-up
source of power in case of electrical outages. We work with architects,
developers and home-owners. We offer clients a complete package from
load analysis, system design, system supply to installation and
warranty. Electec supplies a full range of PV modules,
Mastervolt inverters, controllers, meters, and batteries, providing excellent reliability
and value for your off-grid home.
If you are planning a new home, please write or call
to discuss your needs and ideas. There are certain limitations to
running a home on PV: it is usually too expensive to try to run air
conditioning, or a large scale desalination system. But there are always
ways of making your new home energy efficient and comfortable. You may
be connected to the grid or running entirely off-grid with a diesel
backup system. You can see various options here on our Electec web
Floating a new solar electric boathouse to a
Mastervolt PV customer.

boathouse: a complete Mastervolt system, providing power for a remote
island home. It replaces an old diesel generator. This innovative system
allowed the homeowner to locate his PV system in full sun, provide
shelter for his boat, and still keep all his
large trees to shade the house.
