Types of Solar Power Systems

We offer numerous types of solar power systems that cater to both residential and commercial sectors

On Grid Solar System

An on-grid system produce surplus electricity that can meet the energy requirements of not just the residential sector but also the commercial and industrial sectors. 

The first basic requirement of installing this system is the presence of a grid. Out of the units that solar panels produce during the day, whatever is not being consumed is transferred to the grid. 

The transferred units are imported from the grid at night. And here’s the brownie point: if the solar panels don’t produce enough electricity due to unfavorable conditions on a certain day, the consumer can use the power from the grid. 

So, no matter the scenario, your house gets electricity. Also, this system does not require a battery. Your grid is your battery! 

Off Grid Solar System

An off-grid solar system functions independently. People don’t need to connect solar panels to any grid. However, this system requires a battery backup to store the solar power generated during the day. 

The off-grid solar system consists of solar panels, a charge controller, a battery, mounting structures, and an inverter. The solar panels capture sufficient sunlight during sunshine hours and the battery stores excess charge to power all the electrical appliances at night.

This system is self-sustaining and ideal for areas with no power grids.  

Hybrid Solar System

Hybrid solar systems produce usable electricity with the help of hybrid solar inverters and batteries. The power stored in the batteries can be used later on.

These Hybrid solar systems work in the same manner as traditional grid-tied solar systems. But since they can also store energy, most hybrid systems can function as a backup power source too.

They can provide continuous energy even when there is a power outage.

Intriguing, isn’t it? Dive in to learn more about the components, prices, and types of hybrid solar systems.

A hybrid solar system has the good features of both on-grid and off-grid solar systems, minus their flaws.

The hybrid solar system is connected to the grid via net metering and also has a battery backup to store the power. The energy that solar panels collect goes through a hybrid solar inverter to generate electricity.

The most important benefit of a hybrid solar system is the power backup facility. It means you can continue using electricity without disruptions even during power outages. A battery backup helps store the extra power generated by the solar system during peak hours.
