Off-grid systems are great for customers who can’t easily connect to the grid. This may be because of geographical location or high cost of bringing in the power supply. In most cases, it doesn’t make much sense for a person connected to the grid to completely disconnect and do an off-grid system.
When your home does not have access to the grid, your next best option is to choose an off-grid system. It almost has the same system as the grid-tied but instead of having a grid to connect to, it stores electricity in a battery. Here are the advantages of this system:
A better option for homes with no access to the grid
Instead of having miles and miles of power lines installed in your home to have access to the grid, the off-grid option is better. It is cheaper than having the power lines installed while still providing almost the same reliability as a grid-tied system.
Your home becomes energy sufficient
Back in the day, if your home did not have access to the grid, there was no option for it to be energy sufficient. With the off-grid system, you can have electricity 24/7, thanks to the battery that stores it for you. Having sufficient energy to your home adds a layer of security. Moreover, you will never be affected by power failures because you have a standalone source at home.
