More on off-grid solar energy systems

An off-grid solar system is not connected to the electricity grid and requires battery storage. Off-grid solar systems must be designed correctly in order to generate enough power throughout the year and have the necessary battery capacity to meet the installed location’s electrical energy requirements or demand.

In Africa, we are very fortunate to have abundant sunshine. A backup generator or alternative backup power source may be necessary to supplement your electrical demand and recharge the batteries during times when the batteries are inadequately charged due to very bad weather patches or other unforeseen circumstances. We recommend that the size of the backup power source be adequate to supply energy to your house and charge your batteries at the same time.
