Anu Solar have been pioneers in the successful implementation of OFF Grid Systems since 2008. Till now, Anu Solar has installed over 4000 OFF grid Solar Systems successfully throughout the country. With a range of Solar Power Generators, Solar Home Inverters, Solar Modules and DC Home Lighting Kits, Anu Solar have helped many of them to power their homes and generate power independently. An off-grid solar solution (off-the-grid, standalone) is the obvious alternative to one that is grid-tied. To ensure access to electricity at all times, off-grid solar systems require battery storage and a backup generator (if you live off-the-grid). On top of this, a battery bank typically needs to be replaced after 10 years. Batteries are complicated, expensive and decrease overall system efficiency.
Advantages of Off-Grid Solar Systems
- No access to the utility grid : Off-grid solar systems can be cheaper than extending power lines in certain remote areas.
- Become energy self-sufficient: Living off the grid and being self-sufficient feels good. For some people, this feeling feeling is worth more than saving money. Energy self-sufficiency is also a form of security. Power failures on the utility grid do not affect off-grid solar systems. On the flip side, batteries can only store a certain amount of energy, and during cloudy times, being connected to the grid is actually where the security is. You should install a backup generator to be prepared for these kinds of situations.
Equipment for Off-Grid Solar Systems
Typical off-grid solar systems require the following components:
- Solar Power Generator with in-built Solar Charge Controller
- Battery Bank
- Solar PV Modules
- Off-Grid Inverter
- Backup Generator (optional) or good grid availability.
System capacities ranges from 600W, 1KW, 2KW,4KW,6KW and above.
