Off-grid Solar Power System — also known as a stand-alone power system (SAPS).It works by generating electricity from solar panels and using it to charge a battery bank via a charger controller. That electricity is then converted using an inverter so that it can power the home or business appliances. By saving the electricity in a solar battery, it is possible to run home with solar energy, even at night or during times when there is less sun exposure.
Advantages of Off-Grid Solar Systems
- No access to the utility grid
Off-grid solar systems can be cheaper than extending power lines in certain remote areas.
- Become energy self-sufficient
Another big advantage of going off grid is that, 100% independence from electricity providers. Need not to pay anything for electricity costs, and 100% insured against rising energy prices. System also protects from grid-tied power failures or blackouts. Living off the grid and being self-sufficient feels good. Energy self-sufficiency is also a form of security. Power failures on the utility grid do not affect off-grid solar systems.
Hybrid Solar systems
These systems are off-grid systems with advantage of having a grid backup. Hybrid systems produce energy during the day and stores it in a battery bank and at night use the battery bank to power your facility, and in case of not sufficient battery charge, they can use the connected grid to power your facility.
