Another large off-grid solar energy installation completed by the renewable energy experts at SPECIALIZED SOLAR SYSTEMS for a client living completely off the grid on a small holding located Botswana. 120 solar panels and 72 batteries are just some of the components used for the off-grid solar powered system designed by SPECIALIZED SOLAR SYSTEMS to supply renewable energy with a daily average of 165kWhrs solar yield. The batteries have the capacity in storage to reach a DOD (depth of discharge) of 25% after 60 kWhrs, of usage without a charge, maintaining system efficiency and lifespan,  and the solar system incorporates generator support for extended periods of bad weather or higher than normal electrical loads.

An Off-the-grid energy system is an energy producing system that is primarily designed to help people function without the support of a remote infrastructure, such as an electrical grid.  In electricity, off-grid can be a stand-alone power system or mini-grids typically to provide electrical energy. Off-grid electrification is an approach to access electricity used in countries and areas with little access or no access to electricity, due to scattered or distant population or lack of grid infrastructure or cost factors. The term off-the-grid (OTG) can refer to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities. People who adopt this lifestyle are generally known as off-gridders.
