Sometimes, the simplest way to put solar power to work at your home or cottage is to go off grid which in some cases can save you thousands of dollars. The off grid battery based solar systems Flexible Solar of Windsor installs are safe, secure, reliable, and extremely cost effective.
How it Works
The Off Grid Solar System is Not connected to the Hydro Grid at all!
It is connected to a bank of batteries instead, where the energy is stored and used when needed. The power from the panels goes through a controller, which prevents the batteries from over charging and optimizes the performance of the system. The power stored in the batteries converts from the 12, 24 or 48Volts DC to 120 or 240Volts AC, for the typical home system. That is where a quality inverter is needed to convert it into a perfect sine wave. That is why the Out Back Systems have created a name for themselves!
A Typical Off Grid System:
• You have Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panel Array.
• Regulator Controller for charging of Battery Banks.
• Battery Banks have different configurations depending on needs of System.
• Inverter DC – AC / Charger Controller (Converts to useable Power) (Controls Backup Generator)
If you have a home or cottage that is a considerable distance to a power line, you know that the cost to bring in hydro can run 10 to 30 thousand dollars. With the recent decline in prices, off grid battery based systems can be an extremely cost effective solution.
