WHAT IS OFF GRID SOLAR POWER SYSTEM?
























  • Off grid solar electricity is for homes that do not have access to grid
  • electricity- i.e the house cannot be or chooses not to be supplied electricity
  • from a power company. These systems offer complete autonomy and
  • independence from the national grid and power companies, meaning you 
  • never have an electricity bill

  • HOW DOES OFF-GRID SOLAR WORK?

    • Simply sun shines on solar PV panels on your roof or mounted near your house. These panels
    • generate electricity which is used to power your home and charge your batteries. The batteries
    • allow you to store electricity for use at night or times of low production like cloudy days. 


    • Solar PV panels mounted on your roof or near your house capture energy from the sun and convert this energy into DC electricity
    • A Solar Inverter converts this DC electricity into 110V/220V/230V/380V AC electricity. 
    • The main switchboard takes electricity from the solar inverter or battery inverter and sends it to power your home. 
    • The battery inverter is two way and can take surplus electricity from the main 
    • switchboard and convert in into DC electricity to be stored in batteries or demand is their convert 
    • stored DC electricity from the batteries into AC electricity to power your house. 

    •  UNDERSTANDING OFF-GRID SOLAR.
    • Off-grid solar electricity is complex and getting it wrong leads to expensive mistakes. What
    •  follows below is a simplified explanation for understanding how an off-grid solar power system 
    • works and the process we go through to design your system correctly. 

    • The more intense the sunlight that shines on your solar PV panels the more electricity that is
    •  produced, so when the sun is low in the sky less electricity is produced. Likewise on cloudy days
    •  and overcast days, less electricity is produced than on a bright sunny day. In the winter less 
    • electrical energy is produced than during the summer as the sun shines for less hours. the dotted
    •  line represents the increased electricity production on a summers day.
