Core Solar Battery Services
Off-grid or stand-alone solar systems, are not connected to the electricity grid (the Ergon/Energex network).
Hybrid solar systems have battery storage but they are also connected to the electricity grid (Ergon/Energex).
Adding battery storage to a pre-existing solar power system is a great way to use more of the solar you generate.
Off-Grid Solar Systems
What is an ‘off-grid’ system?
If you are in a remote area or where the cost of having power connected to your property is exorbitant, off-grid (stand-alone) solar power systems with batteries and generator backup are the solution.
Off-grid solar power systems supply electricity to properties that are not connected to the electricity network/grid. These systems are also referred to as “Remote Area Power Systems” (RAPS) or “Stand-Alone Power Systems” (SAPS).
Essentially off-grid solar power systems are independent mini-power stations that create dependable and reliable electricity that is no different to that supplied by the national electricity grid. Whether it is for a small or large home, farm or weekender; an off-grid solar power system will generate reliable, clean and hassle-free electricity.
Reliability is paramount in off-grid solar power systems!
Installing inferior components or under-sizing a system can have disastrous consequences for off-grid systems. Choosing quality components is important in all solar power system systems, but it is absolutely critical in off-grid systems.
Components of an off-grid system
- Solar panels – the panels absorb sunlight and convert it to direct current (DC) electricity.
- Inverters – Off-grid systems require two inverters: a battery inverter (eg Selectronic) and a solar inverter (eg Fronius).
- Battery – Stores energy for use when solar power is not producing, such as at night time or inclement weather.
- Generator – emergency back-up power supply
