Where an electricity provider is unavailable or avoided, the Kestrel off-grid solution provides the ability to generate reliable power, reduce costs, and minimize inconvenience. Kestrel's off-grid solution provides reliable power from the wind which is stored in batteries. The energy stored in the battery bank is used to provide electricity as and when it is required, even during periods of low generation. The Kestrel off-grid system is recommended where national electricity supply is unavailable, unstable or too costly to connect to.
