How Does Off-grid Work?

  1. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels collect the solar energy & transform it into electrical energy. (See this link for more info on the physics of this process.)
  2. Solar charge controller maximizes solar energy & prevents overcharge.
  3. The inverter/charger transforms DC battery voltage into AC voltage which is commonly used in homes. (No expensive DC loads or wiring required.)
  4. A backup generator can be used to provide power during extended cloudy weather.

Additional Resources

Having an off-grid power system means that there is no connection with the utility grid. This means that you have to make all the electricity necessary to run your home, shop, or anything other structure you are powering. You may have an off-grid power system for a number of reasons including wanting to use only renewable, sustainable energy or you may live in a very rural location, making off-grid power systems a cost-effective, efficient solution.
Some of the benefits of having your own power source include the following:
  • independence from electric utility costs incurred by power companies
  • using renewable, sustainable power…Going Green!
  • being more aware of the power you are using, potentially lowering your power usage
  • if you live in a rural area, using off-grid power sources is cost effective so that you don’t have to connect to the main utility grid
Off-grid power systems work by collecting a renewable source of energy, in this case solar, and converting it to usable energy to power your home and appliances. Solar panels collect solar power and create a DC current which is then routed through a solar regulator. This controls the charge so as not overcharge or undercharge your battery. From there, the energy is converted into a usable AC current for your household. Any excess energy is stored in the battery bank for days that the energy source cannot be collected – cloudy or rainy days, at night, etc. Having a generator is also important as a backup method of energy.
We live on a planet that has limited resources. It’s important to try and think green in various aspects of life so that we are conscience of the impact we are having on the planet. By decreasing your energy usage, you can conserve natural resources, save money, and live a more conscientious lifestyle.
