Solar Power Systems
As electricity prices continue to go up and power becomes more and more unreliable in Kenya, many homes, business and commercial centers are making the switch to solar power due to its high reliability, cost effectiveness and ability to produce ones own energy. PowerPoint Systems will install a solar system for you so you can immediately start enjoying the benefits of using clean, free, reliable energy from the sun.

How a Solar System works
A solar power system harvests free energy from the sun by converting light energy into electric energy which is stored in batteries and can be used when there is no sun directly from the battery for loads that work with Direct Current (DC) or through an inverter for loads that work with alternate current (AC).
2kVA Solar Stand-Alone System recently installed in a Home in Manda Island.
Our client is now fully relying on free, reliable energy from the sun. She also never has to worry about high electricity bills again!
Solar panels were mounted on wooden frames because they are temporary. Client is planning on building another floor on that slab. They will therefore be shifted.
Types of Solar Power Systems
SOLAR STAND ALONE/
With an off-grid solar system, you 100 percent depend on the sun and energy stored in batteries to power your home or business.
This system is composed of 1. Solar panel, 2. charge controller, 3. battery and 4. inverter
We pride ourselves as the leading suppliers and installers of off grid systems in Kenya having installed over 2000 of these systems in Kenya and in the East Africa Region.
SOLAR HYBRID SYSTEM
These are systems installed in areas where grid is available as a supplement to the mains and/or a standby.
This system works as follows, you harvest energy from solar panels, store it in the batteries which you can use when there is no electricity or you can use the energy stored in batteries throughout as a primary source of power, with mains being a standby.
The system is ideal for areas with frequent power blackouts.
SOLAR GRID-TIE SYSTEM
These are cost effective systems that work with the grid or generator power.
This is where you generate power which works together with the mains power giving priority to the solar generated power. i.e if your load is consuming 100kW, and your grid tie system is generating 90kW, you'll be able to save 90% of your power because you’ll only be using 10% from the grid.
With this system you avoid expensive storage batteries. The system is ideal for heavy daytime load consumers such as factories.
SOLAR WATER PUMPING
This is where you use the power as you generate it. It goes through a Direct Current inverter drive and powers the pump.
The system is for remote and urban areas where pumping is mostly done during the day and is expensive. Payback is less than 2 years.
PowerPoint System has done water pumping systems for NGOs, water pumping community projects, domestic and commercial properties like apartment buildings
