Off-grid represents both a system and a lifestyle where there is no public infrastructure or utilities, such as electrical grid.
Off-grid electric systems are stand-alone power systems often powered by renewable energies, such as solar panels, small wind turbines, hydro-electric, geothermal etc…
Windkinetic is a specialist in off-grid systems and we usually face the problem of lack of electricity in remote areas with a hybrid systems. Following our customers’ needs we design fully functional stand-alone off-grid systems able to power small loads.
A standard off-grid kit is made of one Windkinetic small wind turbine, a solar panel and a waterproof box where the battery bank and controllers are stored.
The more and more industrial installations are made in rural and remote areas so the off-grid applications are becoming very common but also very demanding in terms of reliability and endurance.
As professionals in this sector, Windkinetic’s challenge is to deliver always an up-to-date and reliable product able to serve the needs of the telecom and telemetry industries as well as rural electrification’s and many other scopes’.
Aside from the industrial scope, off-grid is also a lifestyle, as many people nowadays decide to leave the city life, go rural and detached from public utilities. Being detached means that they need their own power supply, water supply, heating system, sewer etc.
But, one need also not to forget that there are areas in the globe where grids aren’t available and people live without the utilities we are used to.
Windkinetic’s goal is also to meet these different needs and deliver off-grid stand-alone stations that can solved the electricity issue, weather the lack of it is due to an ethically-environmental choice or to a de facto situation.
