The REC system is the complete renewable energy solution for those interested in generating their own power independent from the grid. Eliminate the need for fuel to power your off-grid system, Powerguard’s new design ensures that the maximum amount of energy is utilised from renewable energy sources including solar and wind.
Please refer to our graphical image (pictured right) identifying the main components of the REC system. Emphasis is placed on operating this system with renewable energy sources only however, systems can be supplied that will work with a mains connection or a standby generator if the customer desires.
Countries with a greater number of daylight hours such as Spain can integrate the REC system for residential and commercial use and PV solar will provide all the energy required.
In countries further north or south of the equator, it is difficult to retain a sufficient amount of energy from PV solar during winter months. In such cases, the power available from wind is higher so addition of a wind turbine to the REC system will normally compensate making the system more practical.
Powerguard are here to offer a full service from design to supply of the complete power system according to the available power from sun or wind in any location.
The novelty of the system lies within the charge control system. Premature battery failure is common with renewable energy systems. Most often, this is because the system has not controlled the charge/ discharge of the battery effectively or not provided the user with enough information.
Powerguard have developed a charge control system to micro manage power in to and out of the battery. Research, development, design and manufacture is all completed in house, thus we are confident that this system is unique and market leading compared to existing renewable energy systems.
