Off-Grid Residential Energy Storage Solution

Going off-grid means that 100% of your electricity will be derived through the collection of solar energy and any back up resources.
Off-Grid Solar System Benefits

The idea of running your home completely free of utility companies is an attractive one. Many homeowners have chosen to go this route, seeking the independence, sustainability, and cost savings that an off-grid solar system can provide. Of course, you may be forced to go off-grid to due to the remote location of your property.

Stand-Alone Solar Solutions.

How Does It Work?

Off-grid Solar Systems – work by generating electricity from solar panels and using it to charge a solar battery via a charger controller. That electricity is then converted using an inverter so that it can power your home or business appliances. By storing the electricity in a solar battery, it is possible to run your home exclusively from solar energy, even at night or during times when there is less than optimal sun exposure.

Components of Stand-Alone Solar Solutions.

For an off-grid solar power system to work effectively in the average home, you will require a few pieces of equipment. Depending on the size and the scale of your solar power system set-up, your individual needs are likely to be different from other off grid system owners, but there are some main pieces you will definitely need to get up and running.

Solar Inverter

In order to convert the direct current (DC) collected by your solar panel array into the alternating current (AC) required to run most of your common household appliances and electronics, your solar power system will also need a solar inverter – sometimes referred to as a solar converter or a PV inverter. For the purposes of an off-grid system, you will likely use a stand-alone inverter, though there are a few options when it comes to set-up.

Solar Charge Controller

The solar charge controller or battery charger is vital to the health of your battery. The controller regulates the voltage and current that your solar battery receives, to prevent overcharging and damage.

Solar Panel

As the name suggests, solar panels are an obvious first ingredient. The precise size and production capabilities of your individual solar panel array will depend on the amount of available sunlight in your region, the usable space of your roof, and your energy consumption needs.

Solar Batteries

A solar battery will also be necessary, to allow your home to continue to run after the sun goes down. Throughout the day, your solar storage device will charge as your panels generate excess electricity. Rather than simply losing out on all of that available solar power, a battery enables you to keep it for use at a later time. Depending on your energy needs, you may have a single battery, or even a battery bank.
