​Low Cost and Very Reliable

A Solar Home System consists of the following components (see Solar Home System Diagram above)-


SOLAR PANELS which work as electrical generators converting sunlight into electricity.  Solar panels  produce electricity under any skies with more intense sunlight producing more energy. Astrotek offers a complete line of solar panels made in Spain by Atersa.  Watch a promotional video of ATERSA


SOLAR CHARGE CONTROLLER is an electronic, battery charging charging circuit with protections against over charging and over discharging of the battery.  Astrotek offers good quality solar charge controllers of american, european, and taiwanese manufacture. 


SOLAR BATTERY energy storage for nightime energy consumption. The batteries stabilize the energy supply avoiding damage to appliances.  Astrotek only offers high quality batteries made for solar energy systems able to withstand the deep discharges during cloudy days. See the DEKA SOLAR line of american made solar batteries and the  SONNENSCHEIN GEL line of solar batteries.           


INVERTER converts the direct current available from the battery to the alternating current that most appliances run on.  This allows the use of kitchen appliances, televisions, computers, printers, stereo systems, etc. The inverters offered by Astrotek are reliable, low cost inverters.  


LIGHTING FOR SOLAR HOME SYSTEMS that can work at 12 or 24 volts directly from the battery bank. Astrotek offers high quality, german made LED lights with good illumination intensity.  See the product data sheet here


SOLAR REFRIGERATORS AND FREEZERS that work off the battery bank directly with a dual 12 or 24 V voltage.  Solar refrigerators are chest type with much lower energy consumption than the upright models.  Astrotek offers solar refrigerators, freezers, or refrigerator- freezer combos for 3 to 8 cubic feet interior volume.

COSTS OF SOLAR HOME SYSTEMS

High Intensity LED Lighting for Homes, Dual 12/24 Voltage

The cost of a solar home system depends on the energy consumption the system must provide.   Applainces which work directly from the battery bank have lower energy consumption and reliability.  Generally, a solar home installation includes solar lights and solar refrigerators that work directly off the battery bank.  The categories of solar home installations are given below. .
