One of the perks of living in a remote area is that you have all the peace and quiet you can enjoy. There are no noisy neighbours to complain about. The air is much fresher, and your surroundings are more peaceful and serene, too. However, living somewhere remote also has its challenges, and one of the biggest ones is your source of power. Fortunately, installing an off grid solar system is now much easier than ever. With your very own solar power system, you can enjoy the benefits of having a home in a remote location with a reliable electricity supply.
How an Off Grid Solar System Works
Over the last few years, there have been many improvements in off grid power technology. As a result, off grid power systems, such as solar power and wind power systems, have become cheaper and more accessible.
Today, those living in remote areas are not the only ones who use off grid electrical systems. In fact, even those who live near or within city limits are more inclined to use these power systems because they are greener, more cost-effective, and they enable them to qualify for tax incentives being provided by the government.
If you live or have plans to live in a remote area and you’re interested in using an off grid solar system for your property, here’s how it works:
1. First, the solar panels capture sun’s radiation, converting them into DC electricity.
2. The DC electricity is then fed into a regulator that controls the amount of charge to be stored in the batteries.
3. Deep cycle batteries are connected to the regulator and then charged.
4. You can start using 12-volt appliances by running them directly off the batteries or routing the current through an inverter that converts DC electricity into standard 240V 50Hz AC electricity.
