Electric Installation

Different electrical parts and gear you may need for your off-grid installation.


Electrical Steel Enclosure
Really well built industrial steel enclosure to house all your solar gear. I’m super happy with the quality and it was definitely the right decision to spend the extra money on such an enclosure rather than having everything mounted on a piece plywood. For safety reasons, you should get a proper enclosure for all your solar installation. They come in all kind of sizes, for example:
