Barnes - Shelly Point Estate

Customer's requirement was to be mostly grid independent. We connected all loads on backup of inverter (including geyser and oven), but heavy loads like the geyser and oven is managed by customer. The customer manually disconnect the AC input and only connect when absolutely requires grid power. We recently upgraded the system by adding an additional 3.5kWh battery, for that additional piece-of-mind that enough storage is available.
