Off Grid Solar System
Advancements in the solar industry over the past few years have led to significant improvements in the off-grid solar system. The invention of Tubular Batteries has made off-grid systems more affordable and efficient than ever before. With the widespread issue of load-shedding in Pakistan due to low electricity production, off-grid solar systems can provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for households.
Overall, off-grid solar systems are becoming more popular in Pakistan as a solution to the energy crisis, with many households opting to invest in this technology to ensure their power needs are met even during power outages
On-Grid vs. Off-Grid
What is the difference between On-Grid and Off-Grid? This a famous question, but not a tricky one;
The main componential difference between the two different solar power systems is the presence of a solar battery. In an Off-Grid solar system, solar power is stored in a battery and is extracted from there by the different household appliances. This makes an Off-Grid solar system totally independent.
On the other hand, On-Grid solar power systems are tied directly to the grid and give the excessively produced power there, to benefit from net-metering and thus, reduce your bills even near zero. Removing batteries from the equation can save you a lot of money besides the money you will be saving by net-metering.
How Off Grid Solar Systems Work
Off-grid solar systems, also known as Stand-alone power systems, work by producing electricity from solar panels and storing them in batteries for future use. This mechanism of storing power in batteries is what differentiates it from On-grid solar power systems.
An inverter is then used to convert the stored electricity to be used by common household appliances. The usage of batteries makes it possible to run the house solely from solar power, even at night time when sunlight isn’t exactly available.
The independency which Off-grid solar systems give is what makes them attractive. But to achieve such power independency, more is required than just Solar panels. The components required for Off-grid systems are:
Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic panels, convert sunlight into usable electricity. Composed of interconnected solar cells encased in weatherproof material, these panels generate DC electricity that is converted to AC via a solar inverter.
In addition to providing clean energy, solar panels also offer a range of benefits such as reducing electricity costs and decreasing dependence on fossil fuels. They are low maintenance and have a long lifespan, making them a cost-effective investment for households and businesses. Moreover, it also helps to reduce the carbon footprint, which ultimately helps to improve the environment. With the advancements in technology, solar panels are now more efficient and affordable than ever before. Contact us to learn more about how solar panels can benefit you and your property.
Solar batteries are an essential part of an off-grid system, and they are what differentiates an off-grid system from an on-grid system. They prevent the generated power from being lost and instead store it for later use. This allows for the use of electricity even during power outages or when the sun is not shining.
These batteries are also designed to last for several years and require minimal maintenance, making them a reliable and cost-effective option for households and businesses that want to achieve energy independence. They come in various types, such as Lead-acid, Lithium-ion, and others, and the selection depends on the specific requirements of the system.
In order for your household appliances to benefit from your solar panels, you’ll require a solar inverter. The electricity produced by solar panels is direct current (DC) while the type of electricity required by most electronics is alternating current (AC). The solar inverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity, making it suitable for use in your home or business.
The inverters are available in different types, such as string inverters and micro-inverters, and the selection depends on the specific requirements of the system. With the advancements in technology, solar inverters are now more efficient and affordable than ever before.
Solar Charge Controller
Solar charge controller is vital to the health of your solar battery. The controller regulates the voltage and current that your solar battery receives, to prevent overcharging and damage. It ensures that the battery is charged at the correct rate and maintains a stable voltage level.
This helps to prolong the life of the battery and ensures that it is able to store and provide power efficiently. The controllers come in different types, such as PWM (pulse width modulation) and MPPT (maximum power point tracking), and the selection depends on the specific requirements of the system.
