Off Grid and Hybrid Solutions
In off-grid, electricity generated by solar energy can be used to run any household appliances, commercial and industrial machineries. Off-grid solar electricity is for residential or industries that do not have access to grid electricity or faces frequent grid power failure which leads to shutdown of solar (renewable energy) systems or having higher DG set consumption’s – i.e. a house, office, or an industry cannot be or chooses not to be supplied electricity from a power company. These systems offer complete autonomy and independence from the national grid, DG sets and power companies, meaning you never have an electricity bill. This technology is limited to export excess electricity to grid, i.e. solar power which is generated in a day time one can use it directly to run the electrical loads and store extra power to the battery in case of excess generation after usage of electrical loads but cannot fees excess power to grid. Which cause loss of excess power and stops extra earning from utility supplier.
Simply sun shines on solar PV panels on your roof or mounted near your premises. These panels generate electricity which powers your load and chargesthe batteries. These batteries allow you to store electricity for use at night or times of low production like cloudy days. We highly recommend Lithium Iron Ferro Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries as it’s comes with warranty of 5 years in some cases 10 years with lifespan more than 12 years (Around 3000 cycles).
These systems requires in depth study of types different loads, there timings and usage hours. Based on these inputs the system capacity and battery selection is made.
In Hybrid solar (renewable energy) systems, the minimum two renewable system is configured to supply power to the load along with battery backup system. In solar hybrid system context, the battery is supplied with system depends upon the backup designed. The off grid and hybrid systems works even in absence of grid support and last long as per battery backup designed at the time of project discussion. The only difference in off grid and hybrid system is the earlier system fails to export excess power to grid by design while hybrid does the same. The Hybrid system give additional benefits of using exported units to the grid in the night time or in cloudy season which gives better returns over off grid system.
Benefits of Off-Grid/ Hybrid Solar (Power Generating Renewable Systems)
- Pay less for your energy bills.
- Returns on solar projects starting from 15% to more than 30% and above.
- Battery base systems which ensure hassle free operations even in case of fluctuating load conditions or in case of grid failure.
- Add more values to the systems which runs on DG sets.
- Contribute towards the environment by using clean and sustainable energy.
