A full off-grid system

To meet the requirements of isolated communities, Winch Energy designs, installs and operates containerised and remotely controllable solar solutions known as remote power units (RPUs), enabling mini-grids to be set up. The Winch Energy payment system uses smart prepayment meters to bill for the various services used. Their energy storage system provides communities with a constant power supply. They therefore ensure that both residential and business users have access to a permanent, dependable system.
