Top Systems has been supplying complete off-grid energy systems based on solar energy for Tiny Houses since 2015. “The Victron EasySolar all-in-one solution (see images above) with built-in battery charger, inverter, MPPT solar charger and groups box in a compact housing is often ideal for this application,” says Ronald van den Berg, sales manager at Top Systems. “An energy system is only as strong as its weakest link, so you always have to look at the whole system and that is what we do for you.

“The battery is safe, has a lifespan of 20 years and is extremely suitable for daily charging and discharging in combination with renewable energy sources.” Read more about Terrabattery here.
