Off-Grid Solar Power Systems
NOTE: For special circumstances or for more information about any of our off-grid solar power kits, please call 888.680.2427 or contact us to speak to one of our solar professionals for a free consultation.
What is an 'off-grid" solar power system?
An off-grid solar power system captures energy from sunlight and stores it in a battery bank for use in a structure which is beyond the reach of the main power grid. Using solar panels to create an elecrical DC current, this current is then routed through a solar charge controller which ensures proper charging and prevents overcharging and helps to "float" the battery bank, meaning to keep the charge topped-off. The current is then directed to the battery bank for storage and later use.
In most off-grid solar installations, the current is drawn from the battery through a DC-to-AC solar inverter. The AC current is then used to power household appliances and, together with a good energy usage plan, can power many of the needs of an off-grid home or other structure.
We have taken great care in the design of our pre-packaged off-grid solar power systems. Whether you will be using an off-grid solar system for your remote cabin, your place of business, or your full-time residence, we have kept several issues in mind.
Safety is first and most important. All sources and circuits are equipped with fuses, breakers or disconnects as appropriately needed. Second is reliability, we use only the very best equipment, with brand-name components from . There is no room for compromise when comfort and safety are concerned. Thirdly, convenience and ease of use. Whether you tackle the installation yourself or have your electrician do it for you, it is as simple as 1, 2, 3.
Our detailed instructions will walk you through and we are always available (during business hours) to help you over the phone. We even offer installation, should you desire.
One of our pre-packaged systems should do the job you need. If you need or want something more or something less in your system, it is no problem. We will analyze your request and accommodate your needs. To decide on the system that will meet your needs, you will have to determine the power requirements of your home. You will have to create a list of all the loads you plan to run, their voltages and their daily hours of operation. This is then compared to what the solar systems will produce for the location you are using them.
