Off-Grid & Energy Storage

Off-Grid & Energy Storage

An off-grid solar energy system is designed to work on its own. The system relies on electricity generated in combination or individually by solar panels, generators, or hydro systems which is then stored in batteries. The power stored by the batteries then supplies the power to your house. Just like the term off-grid, this system is not connected to any outside power source or utility grid.

In designing an off-grid system for your home we take every electrical variable into consideration to supply you or your family the power it will need daily. We will review your solar potential, your electric usage, and all energy saving options. Also, we will match the necessary battery capacity to your system to allow the enjoyment of energy freedom.

Off-Grid Information:

Off-grid systems are energy independent. Meaning, you receive no power bills and systems work during power outages. With the efficiency of solar panels increasing every year and energy storage becoming the wave of the future, Off-grid solar systems are now more achievable than ever before. This increase in technology allows for off-grid systems to autonomously control and monitor themselves to insure there is no lack of power.

Considering the systems are designed and warranted to last up to 25 years, owners are reducing their carbon footprint, generating their own power rather than buying it from a power company, and can lock in the ongoing cost of their electricity for years to come.

Off-Grid Example:

This 3.4 Kilowatt off-grid solar system built for a residence in Jackson County, in Northeast Alabama. The system powers the electrical requirements of the cabin, and consists of 10 REC Twin Peak, 335-Watt, 72 cell commercial solar modules, mounted on a Snap’N’Rack ground mount array on a 180 degree azimuth and 30 degree angle. To serve off-grid purposes, the system also includes a Schneider XW-MPPT80-600 Charge Controller, a Schneider XW 6848 Battery Inverter, a Schneider XW Mini Power Distribution Panel, Schneider Conext Battery Monitor, Schneider Automated Generator Start (AGS), and a 48 Volt, 534 amp-hour Outback 200 NC, Nano Carbon Battery System.
