The Solar Cube stand-alone power system (SAPS), Boundary Power’s innovative, rapidly deployable SAPS solution has been shortlisted as a finalist for ‘Excellence in Innovation and Adaptability’ in the 2021 Hunter Business Awards.

Held to highlight the important contributions that businesses make to the local, national and global business communities, the awards celebrate the achievements and entrepreneurial spirit of organisations and individuals within the Hunter Region of New South Wales (NSW), the base of Boundary Power’s design and delivery partner, Ampcontrol.

The Solar Cube stand-alone power system is leading the energy transition, making it possible to replace traditional poles and wires networks with an off-grid, clean power solution.

Comprising a 4kW solar array, 7.5kW battery module and 15kW of diesel generation capacity, the Solar Cube outputs 26.5kW of single phase power.

A number of innovative design features differentiate the Solar Cube from other SAPS products available within the market, including:

  • Full workshop assembly: The Solar Cube SAPS arrives at site fully workshop assembled, including all electrical testing and commissioning. This approach is key to the Solar Cube’s rapid deployment methodology.
  • Rapid deployment methodology: Aided by full workshop assembly, the Solar Cube is capable of deployment from back of truck to energy export in just 90 minutes.
  • Swappable sub-components: Given its deployment in remote areas, the Solar Cube SAPS has been designed with modularity key. Modular, swappable sub-components allow service crews to quickly swap out components in the event of a fault that is unable to be rectified remotely, ensuring any power outage for the end user is substantially minimized.

The 2021 Hunter Business Awards will be held on the 17th November at Newcastle’s Civic Theatre.

Category winners of the 2021 Hunter Business Awards will progress to the 2021 Business NSW Awards.
