The off-grid solar systems provide electrical power in a secure, comfortable, and totally renewable way, without the need to access the distribution network.
Join the many people who have already experienced the advantages of meeting their electricity requirements with solar electricity.
How do off grid systems works?
Off-grid systems supply electricity to properties that are not connected to or have chosen to disconnect from, the public electricity network.
Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity, which is then fed through the solar inverter to create usable alternating current (AC) electricity. AC electricity is then sent to the switchboard, where it is sent to the household appliances that are using electricity at the time, and any surplus electricity is sent to the battery bank to recharge it.
The inverter/charger will stop the solar system from recharging the batteries once they are full. When your solar system is not producing electricity, your battery bank will send power to your household appliances.
If the battery bank state-of-charge level gets too low, the inverter/charger will turn on the fuel generator automatically to power the house's electrical appliances and recharge the battery bank.
There are two different ways of configuring an off-grid system – AC-Coupling and DC-Coupling – and each have unique advantages. The configuration type will have an impact on the life expectancy, efficiency, and flexibility of your system.
Benefits of using solar systems
Rooftop solar has never been more affordable for homeowners, business owners, and their communities
Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be significantly reduced. A typical home photovoltaic system can produce around 80% of the electricity a household uses in a year. Constant increases in electricity prices and the dramatic reduction in the cost of solar equipment mean that solar electricity is now a very sound and risk-free investment.
What Does Self-Consumption Means
Any energy that your system produces will go first into your home to power any devices that happen to be running - thus reducing the amount of energy you have to purchase from your electricity retailer.
If your solar system produces more energy than your household can consume at a given moment, the excess solar is automatically sent back into the grid. This "exported" solar energy is what earns you the low feed-in rates.
Once installed, these self-consumption systems effectively provide you with free heating or hot water saving you a significant amount of money on your energy bills.
