Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

I was impressed with the solar system Pete connected for me. He’d previously installed some off-grid security lighting for us and his dedication to getting the job done right was why we hired him again. He’s reliable and informative and we knew we could count on him to do quality work each time.

Mac Sinclair

It was a great experience hiring Pete. Prompt and professional  service from someone who is genuinely knowledgeable in solar technologies. I would recommend Pete to anyone interested in solar power.

Meg

Pete researched our system and the generator and ‘voila’ was able to order and install a relay which accomplishes what we were seeking. We are very happy with the interest Pete took in this little project. He is personable, knowledgeable an very easy to deal with.

Mike Irwin

Pete was great to work with and provided us with great advice for the replacement of our solar system.
He put a lot of thought into installing the system in our existing home with as little disturbance to the drywall and existing structure as possible, which was greatly appreciated.

Jodi Williams

Pete works diligently and efficiently. He is knowledgeable and does his research. My solar is an off grid application backed up with a generator which I am very reliant on. I highly recommend IOTG and will use them again if needed.

CASE STUDY

Off Grid Lakehouse

Challenge: Bringing power to a brand new off grid lakehouse. The Finished solar system powers lighting, septic pump, well pump and furnace fan as part of a whole off grid power solution that includes propane and a generator for backup.

PANELS

Installed two solar arrays that collect maximum solar energy using six 400W pannels in a limited space.

AUTOMATIC GENERATOR STARTUP

Included an Automatic Generator Start (AGS) to seamlessly support solar power when batteries get low.

VENTED BATTERY BOX

Installed a custom-built battery enclosure that vents to the outside.The battery bank uses 16  6-Volt batteries connected to create a 48V DC supply.

RAPID SHUTDOWN

System design includes rapid shutdown disconnects with RSD switch for safety, as per the new CEC standards.

CONTROLLER

Installed a controller that grabs the DC power from the solar arrays and converts it to 48V DC, supplying energy to the battery bank and the inverter.

INVERTER CHARGER

Installed a Inverter Charger to convert the DC power recieved from the controller into household power
