Bringing Electricity Where You Didn’t Think Possible
Whether you’re relaxing on a boat, cabin, RV, or in remote rural areas where there is no grid to connect to, Coulee Limited’s powerful small 12V solar panels are your ideal solutions for providing back-up power or off-grid power.
Use one solar panel alone or add additional solar panels to create a custom solar energy system. Make Coulee solar panels part of your off-grid adventure.
Off-grid Solar System
In remote, rural areas, where there is no grid to connect to, solar electricity is the answer. Off-grid solar electric systems
provide an affordable, clean, and constant source of energy that allows for critical power to be supplied anywhere in the world. These off-grid systems can be used for a wide range of applications starting from powering a basic light bulb to providing power for an entire village or even large-scale telecommunications systems.
Coulee small solar panels, together with our global network of systems integrators and installers, provide the highest
quality off-grid solar systems.
Solar Water Pumping System & Lighting System
Access to clean drinking water and lighting are two of the most significant challenges for many remote villages and towns. Solar power systems can provide this access by using solar-powered water pumps and purification systems. These off-grid systems are simple to design and install, and often do not require batteries for electrical storage. The amount of water needed on a daily basis is pumped into a tank during daylight hours where it is stored until consumed. A small system can also be used to power street lights by adding a small battery and charge controller to provide light and safety for travelers on remote roads.
Solar Home System
Small homes in remote locations can now be equipped with some modern conveniences. A small-scale off-grid solar system can provide a reliable and continuous energy supply that is more economical than a diesel generator or others in long time run. The diagram shows a system using a small solar panel, a charge controller, and a battery. Thousands of these types of systems have been installed with Coulee Solar Products, providing critical power for safety, lighting, communications and so on.
Telecommunication companies often run into challenges when trying to provide coverage to remote and rural locations where no grid is available to connect to for powering their transmitters. With a medium to large-scale off-grid system, telecom providers can deliver reliable, continuous service to any remote area. These systems can be designed to operate completely off-grid or as a reliable hybrid system tied to the grid, as shown below. Coulee Limited has been supplying reliable off-grid solar systems to telecom providers for years.
Rural Power Supply System
The sun shines brightly in many rural communities. However, they can’t get access to electricity because there is no grid nearby. Those communities can turn that sunlight into electricity by using a central off-grid system to provide the power that can be shared by everyone. The diagram above shows using solar panels supplying energy to a small village.
Small Solar Panels’ Advantages
Not all off-grid solar modules are created equal. We have designed and manufactured photovoltaic modules for optimal performance in off-grid solar powered applications. Since 12 V batteries are commonly used in off-grid power systems, we have designed our Coulee small PV panels to optimize charging these batteries. When handling batteries with higher voltages such as 24 V or 48 V, 2 or 4 small powerful solar panels can be connected in series to generate the optimum battery charging voltage. Higher power systems can be achieved by combining strings in parallel to reach the required number of off-grid solar panels. If using a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) charge controller, you can use any of Coulee small panel in your off-grid project.
