Off-grid is stand-alone power system to provide electricity to communities. It refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.
Off-grid connected solar is a solar electricity system with battery backup. During the day the sun shines and charges the batteries as well as supplies power to your home. During the evening or on rainy days when the sun isn’t shining you use the power stored in the batteries. Your house is not connected to the national grid hence the name: off-grid.
There is no absolute standard off-grid system and it should be designed to suit your specific electrical loads and use patterns. At Chandra Solar we have designed systems that run whole pacific nations. We love off-grid systems and would love to help design yours.
The off grid solar power system works even when the main power is not available. It require batteries which provide back up when grid power is not available. The solar power is generated and supplied to household appliances and remaining power is fed to battery for charging.
