Autonomous, off-grid solar systems
When the utility power is unavailable or too expensive to bring in to your home, solar panels allow you to be your own utility company! You can live in peace, with no noisy generator to disturb the quiet. There are several variations of off-grid solar power, depending on your needs, budget and consumption.
All variations of off-grid solar power depend on solar electric panels and store electricity in a bank of batteries.
Off-grid AC Solar Power Systems
Off-grid solar power also stores DC electricity in batteries. The addition of an inverter allows this system to convert DC electrical current coming from the batteries into AC or alternating current. AC is the standard form of electricity for anything that "plugs in" to utility power.
Autonomous systems essentially cosnist of:
- An array of solar panels (the number depends on consumption requirements)
- An off grid inverter which turns DC power from solar panels to AC power to use in the household
- An array of batteries used to store power generated from the solar panels. Capacity of batteries depends on autonomous operation time required.
