The BobolinkSolar Grey Owl is
ideal for 3 season cottages
This is our most popular small off grid system. The reason? Its powerful, low maintenance and relatively cheap and easy to install.
Note: Recently we were able to increase battery stock which means we have at least 10 systems available for summer 2019. Make that 8, as of April 27.
Lithium batteries make the value unbeatable. Remember, your lithium battery has the lowest cost per cycle; but more importantly; is 20% more efficient in charging and discharging. Nothing beats our batteries!
- We also use Victron solar controllers. Ultra fast charge algorithm means better shade handling; superior harvest all year round.
- Victron inverters for proven longevity; or CNBOU inverters for a combination of lower price and bigger power; give you cost effective off grid electricity.
This system supports multiple devices: dishwasher; induction cook top; energy star fridge up to 18cuft.; tv; internet; lights; etc. Well suited for 3 seasons; add a charger with small generator for 4 season use. (Full timers; ask about load sharing with smaller generators).
This is the system for those who value a trouble free life. These systems are designed from step one to be tougher, more reliable and easier to manage. They will last for a decade or longer without bother. One of the benefits of BobolinkSolar — we want to build 25 year systems and we’re getting there. We believe our systems will prove more reliable than any other available.
