PV Direct

Simple Solutions

What is PV Direct?

PV Direct systems are simple solar solutions that require no batteries, charge controllers, or inverters. Generally, you just connect your panels directly to your appliance/element. PV Direct systems are easy to install and have a quick payback time! You can start using PV Direct to supply power for your air conditioning, hot water, aeration system and more with the option to add on later. It is a straight and simple path to free, clean, and independent energy.

Our PV Direct Systems

Solar Direct Hot Water

This simple PV Direct system provides you with solar hybrid hot water. Solar energy runs to the controller, which provides MPPT and prevents arcing for your thermostat. The controller is wired directly to the lower part of the heat tank. You can use the heat produced by the PV Direct system for all of your hot water, and only rely on the grid when your usage exceeds what your solar is producing. Learn more

Estimated Cost: $1,400

(includes hot water controller, panels, panel mounting, PV cable)

Solar Direct Air Conditioning

The ACDC12C is designed for low cost, easy installation and a fast payback. This unique solar air conditioning technology requires no batteries, no inverter, no controller – just plug in the solar panels and start saving up to more than 80% on daytime cooling or heating costs. In addition to cooling, the ACDC12C solar heat pump will provide solar powered heating. Learn more

Estimated Cost: $2,800

(includes ACDC12C Unit, panels, panel mounting, PV cable)

Solar Direct Aeration System

Aeration systems help with algae control, fish health, mosquitoes, odors, and more. This Solar Aeration System provides all the benefits of traditional aeration without the costly batteries, AC wiring, and ongoing expense of grid power. Even during cloudy conditions, they provide low-maintenance, high-volume Solar Aeration on any site. Applications include fish ponds, livestock watering, golf courses, and many more! Learn more

Estimated Cost: $6,468

(includes complete compressor system, panels, panel mounting, enclosure base assembly, diffusers, weighted hose, and PV Cable)

Solar Direct Water Pumping

SQFlex Pump

The Grundfos SQFlex is our favorite pump. This pump can run both AC and DC power without requiring an external inverter. The pump system offers the perfect water supply solution in remote areas where water is scarce and the power supply is non-existent or unreliable. You also have the option to install this with back-up batteries or generators that can take over when the energy from nature is not available. Learn more

Estimated Cost: $4,920
(includes 6SQF-3 pump, CU200 controller, IO101 Generator Interface, pressure switch, solar panels, panel mounting, Cable, and connectors)

PicoBlender

During full solar irradiance, the PicoBlender will draw maximum power from the PV array. As cloud cover or impending darkness reduce the level of solar irradiance, the system automatically makes up the difference by drawing from the grid. Once it’s dark, the system can draw all of its power from the grid. In high energy cost areas this allows for both power firming during the day and full nighttime operation while consuming as little power from the grid as possible. Typical applications include swimming pool pumps, well pumps, solar decorative fountains, aerators and waste water treatment systems. Learn more

Cost: $3,450
(includes PicoBlender 2500)

PicoCell

 This system is a soft start Variable Frequency Drive Technology running on solar power. The PicoCell 3500 universal controller can power motors, pumps, compressors or other inductive loads regardless of whether it is 50HZ or 60HZ, 120Vac or 240Vac. Designed for remote off-grid installations, the weather proof all aluminum chassis/heat sink is IP65 rated for harsh outdoor environments and can operate in high temperatures, humidity and corrosive environments.
