Advantages of Off-Grid Solar Systems
1. No access to the utility grid.
Off-grid solar systems can be cheaper than extending power lines in certain remote areas.
2. Become energy self-sufficient
Since you are using the sun’s rays, it actually means that you are not exhausting any of the non-renewable sources of energy.
Living off the grid and being self-sufficient feels good. For some people, this feeling feeling is worth more than saving money. Energy self-sufficiency is also a form of security. Power failures on the utility grid do not affect off-grid solar systems.
On the flip side, batteries can only store a certain amount of energy, and during cloudy times, being connected to the grid is actually where the security is. You should install a backup generator to be prepared for these kinds of situations.
Equipment for Off-Grid Solar Systems
Typical off-grid solar systems require the following extra components:
