Solar On-Grid Rooftop kit is a solar system that generates electricity and is connected to the utility grid. A grid connected installation ensures you have the electricity you need, whenever you need it – automatically and regardless of weather conditions. With a grid connect system; your property is still connected to the electricity grid for period such as night-time when solar electricity production does not meet your needs and also every appliance like AC, Escalators will be operational.
- Save more money with net metering
A grid-connection will allow you to save more money with solar panels through better efficiency rates, net metering, plus lower equipment and installation costs:
Batteries, and other stand-alone equipment, are required for a fully functional off-grid solar system and add to costs as well as maintenance. Grid-tied solar systems are therefore generally cheaper and simpler to install.
Your solar panels will often generate more electricity than what you are capable of consuming. With net metering, homeowners can put this excess electricity onto the utility grid instead of storing it themselves with batteries.
Net metering (or feed-in tariff schemes in some countries) play an important role in how solar power is incentivized. Without it, residential solar systems would be much less feasible from a financial point of view.
Many utility companies are committed to buying electricity from homeowners at the same rate as they sell it themselves.
- The utility grid is a virtual battery
Electricity has to be spent in real time. However, it can be temporarily stored as other forms of energy (e.g. chemical energy in batteries). Energy storage typically comes with significant losses.
The electric power grid is in many ways also a battery, without the need for maintenance or replacements, and with much better efficiency rates. In other words, more electricity (and more money) goes to waste with conventional battery systems
An off-grid solar PV system is a ‘stand-alone’ system, independent of any grid power source. Off-grid systems are used when there is either no grid connection available or you simply choose not to be connected to a grid!
Our off-grid solar energy systems combine the latest technologies in high output solar panels, generator sets smart inverters and battery storage
Benefits off-grid solar
- For remote locations, off-grid is the best solution.
- Be truly self-sufficient with protection from ever-increasing electricity prices and independence from power providers
- Off-grid systems give home and business owners the power to choose their electricity source and the impact they have on their environment. Evidence of climate change is mounting and the true cost to our environment of conventional energy generation is becoming increasingly clear
LED lights have been hailed as the future of home lighting, as they use very little energy, claim to last a very long time and, unlike regular energy-saving bulbs, they are instantly bright when switched on.
LEDs are the most energy-efficient bulbs. They use 90% less energy than traditional incandescent and can sometimes pay for themselves through energy savings in just a couple of months. So while the upfront cost might be high, you’ll notice the difference in your annual energy bills. By contrast, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) use 60%-80% less energy than incandescents, while halogens use 20-30% less.
LEDs claim to be ultra long lasting – lasting for 25-30 years, depending on which one you buy and how you use it.
LEDs give out their light almost instantly when you flick the light switch, so you don’t have to put up with dim light while they get going.
Our tests have found that LED and halogen bulbs work fine in low temperatures, whereas CFLs don’t.
