If you want a state of the art off grid system with all of the latest features which won’t break the bank, it’s well worth looking at this system. Powered by equipment from market innovators Schneider Electric, JA Solar Panels, Sun-Torque lithium batteries which have a 10 year Pro Rata warranty and also allow you to grow as you go. Because lithium batteries operate individually you can add another battery 1 year down the track or 10 years down the track without impacting the life of the other batteries in the system.
Here at Self Sufficient we specialize in off grid, what that means is that when you purchase a system from us you can have complete confidence in its reliability and performance. We would only sell what we would install in our own house (We live off grid) and best of all we are here to help you every step of the way after you’ve purchased your system. We are one of the biggest off grid distributors in Australia, we offer you the right system, at the best price the first time.
The Schneider Difference:
- Unlike many manufacturers, Schneider provide a time period on their XW Pro’s surge capacity, for example their XW pro surges to 12kW for 1 minute
- Schneider invest 5% of revenue back into research and development which is no surprise when you’ve used their products they are so well thought out, functional, future proofed and most importantly reliable.
- Is one of the largest On Grid and Off Grid certified inverters
- Schneider now has a 20 person Australian technical support team to help with all of your enquiries. They make sure you aren’t left in the dark
- 5 + 5 year warranty now available
- Have been operating internationally for 183 years

Sun-Torque Lithium batteries.
Welcome to the future of a fully modular, expandable, off-grid & energy storage battery bank. Grow your battery bank as your needs demand, and also benefit from the following improvements:
- More usable energy up to 80% can be used without adversely compromising battery life
- More Charge / Recharge cycles 6000 or more cycles, depending on depth of discharge
- Better constant high current Charge / Discharge performance a 10kWh bank can handle a 10kW load, and a surge of 20kW
- Greater charge efficiency up to 97% ! this means far less energy wasted during charging and more power available to you in less time
- More energy stored in less space
- Internal intelligent management means each battery module can operate to its potential, rather than performing only as well as the weakest battery
Based on the rated performance and upfront cost, the Sun-Torque lithium batteries deliver an exceptional cost of ownership of approximately 15 cents per kWh. This compares favorably with the typical & rising cost of mains energy of around 28 cents per kWh.
