Solar Systems

Here are some beginner friendly suggested packages. You can change and upgrade them as you wish and need, we are just giving a general idea here. Please note that all packages don’t include wire, as the required wire length varies greatly between installations. General rule is to use at least 3,5 mm² THHN and keep them as short as possible esp for 12 Volt systems.

Package 30
1 pc Solar Panel 30W
1 pc Solar controller 10A
1 pc Solar battery Solar Master 40Ah
2 pcs LED Bulb 3W 12 Volt

Price: Now only P6,400

This package is ideal for your farm away from civilization where you just need some light, or as a brown-out system, so you don’t sit in the dark when the city lights turn off.
Optionally you connect other small 12 Volt consumers like mini (USB) electric fan, cellphone charger, or even a small LED TV (check their power supply – many run on 12 Volt DC).

The 60 Watt panel generates on average 300 Wh per day – enough power to run both LED lights for 7 hours + a 36W 12 Volt 16″ LED TV for 3 hours. This calculation includes already 50% system loss due to battery storage etc.

Package 120
2 pcs Solar Panel 60W
1 pc Solar controller 10A
1 pc Solar battery Solar Master 70Ah
2 pcs LED Bulb 3W 12 Volt

Price: Now only P12,820

This is the deluxe version of our package 60. It still comes without 220 Volt inverter, as you can find many device capable on running natively on 12 Volts. Even for your laptop you might find a car 12 Volt adapter, Smartphones and Tablet computers run usually from USB for which you can find 12 Volt adapters, too. With a system like this you can illuminate already a whole house and possibly even run a Internet-router and laptop.

Package 300
5 pcs Solar Panel 60W
1 pc Solar controller 20A
1 pc Solar battery Solar Master 120Ah
2 pcs LED Bulb 3W 12 Volt
1 pc Pure Sine Inverter 500W 12DC to 220AC

Price: Now only P30,560

A strong system that can already run a small home and power a plethora of appliances. Thanks to the pure sine inverter you can run most of your existing appliances. We would still suggest to keep as many appliances on 12 Volt (eg lights, TV, charger, laptop) and use the inverter only for large appliances. A 500W inverter looses a bit of energy if you run it only at 10 Watts… Please note that a 500W inverter can only power inverter type fridges or otherwise very small conventional refrigerators (even if the label says 120 Watts – required startup-surge is often too high), no air-cons and no water-pumps. Other than that it runs a lot of things and even some power-tools.

Package 1200

8 pc Solar Panel 150W
2 pc Solar controller 20A
2 pc Solar battery Solar Master 120Ah
1 pc inverter Pure sine 1000W at 24 Volts.
Price: Now only P87,300

A system good enough to run a house excluding an air-con.

  1. how much will it cost for a system that will run a whole house, 6 rooms with 1.5 hp window type airconditioners and 2 2hp split type for the living room and dining, it has always been my dream to have my house run by solar power.

    • Too much to run on battery, but it would be nice to run as a grid-tie system. Just check with your local power utility if they can set you up for netmetering (like here in Bukidnon). If you are nearby, we can get into more details, but I would recommend e-mail (contact form), as this might become too detailed and specific for a public discussion.

  2. Volker,
    We are designing a new house, and am considering plans for solar power and water systems. Question, are these solar systems Grid-tie? and what exactly does that mean? Will we reduce our electric bill? Will we have electric during black out?

    • Hi,
      It’s your choice of building an off-grid or on-grid system. Currently batteries are still expensive and need replacement before they amortize, therefore we use them mostly for small anti brown-out systems (light, internet and TV for example) or for powering remote locations without grid nearby.
      Speak to your power coop if they are ready for grid-tie, I think Davao light mentions it on their website already. With grid-tie you can power your whole house and get your investment returned after 10 or less years (cost: think about your electric bills, times 12, times 10 (=120)).
      Your electric bill will be reduced in that case or in rare cases eliminated. Grid tie systems don’t provide energy during brown-out, so it is wise to combine them with a small off grid system.

      • Hello Volker,

        Thank you for your reply. May I have your email address so the hubby can email you further? He has more questions I’m sure. Thank you.
