Magic Lite, a sister company of NSL, recently implemented a fully off-the-grid home illuminated by cutting-edge LED lighting solutions on the Magnetawan River.

Barry and Lorraine Burton transformed their retirement dream into reality by building a fully off-grid home powered by solar energy. This project not only embodies sustainability but also highlights the excellence of Magic Lite’s LED lighting solutions in enhancing the quality of off-grid living.

Technical Highlights of the Project

a)  Solar Power System

Solar Panels: The system includes 6 X 340 Watt 60-cell and 3 X 450 Watt 72-cell solar panels.

Battery Bank: A 24 Volt DC (4 X 6 VDC) 10 KW Rolls Battery bank managed via a MIDNITE CLASSIC 200 Controller.

Inverter: A 3KW Schneider Context SW 4024 Inverter powers the 120-volt backup system, with a Generac standby generator for emergencies.

b)  LED Lighting Solutions

Master Bedroom: Features a Single 4 ft Hard Strip 24 VDC, 16 watts (LV-HS-PD20-24V-120-3000K) for a warm, comforting glow.

Great Room: Illuminated by a Wooden Horse Yoke Chandelier and Cove Lighting, providing an inviting atmosphere.

Kitchen: Equipped with LED Mini Star II puck lights (LEDMS-II-BK) for efficient and effective task lighting.

Loft: Enhanced by a custom chandelier made from horse hames and Globe Lights (MGST-2700K), supplemented by additional hard strips for versatile lighting.

c)  Sustainable Materials

• The interior beams are sourced from Simcoe County managed forest, the largest municipal forest in Canada, further emphasizing the project’s commitment to sustainability.

The Takeaway

Magic Lite’s off-grid project on the Magnetawan River serves as an inspiring blueprint for environmentally conscious living. It demonstrates how advanced LED lighting solutions can be seamlessly integrated with solar power to create a home that is both sustainable and comfortable. This project is particularly valuable for people/professionals looking to explore the possibilities of off-grid living and low-voltage lighting solutions.
