Facts About Off Grid Solar Power By Y.T. Lee

People who reside in remote places may now be able to live more comfortable lives; in the past, living in remote areas may mean no electricity. Through off grid solar power, that notion has changed. Off grid technology is an efficient and affordable way that enables people to enjoy having electricity, whether or not they are in mountainous areas or in big cities. An off grid system may also be called a Remote Access Power System, which is a technology that becomes alive because of solar energy. This kind of system also makes it possible for energy to be stored and utilized even when just using batteries hence, in the midst of distant areas and even brownouts, power interruption is eliminated. The process of getting solar energy the off grid way starts when sunlight hits the solar panels, which leads to the generation of the so called DC electricity. The DC electricity is then sent into a regulator responsible for determining the total amount of charges needed to produce energy. The batteries, another component of an off grid system are then charged, which can provide electricity to appliances in a household. Another process makes use of an inverter which is responsible for converting the energy into electricity for the home. Some people may ask about the total number of solar panels needed when utilizing off grid technology. The standard is actually solar panels with a minimum of 75 up to 120 watts per 200 AH batteries. As for the number of batteries needed to support the system, it will still depend on the amount of electricity the user needs. For example, utilizing electricity for a laptop the whole day plus a couple of small appliances may require a 100 AH battery. Of course, if you need power for the whole household, which means that almost all appliances and lights will be turned on, more batteries, and of course, more solar panels are required. Those who may be interested in installing their own system may do so as most off grid panel kits may be described as do-it-yourself. One tip when installing an off grid technology is to make sure that the glass face of the panels are at the position of 90 degrees to the sunlight for a big portion of the day. There are still other things to consider like the type of seasons in your area, the tilt of your property’s roof, etc. For people who may not be that technical or those who may not be comfortable enough that they can install the system properly, professional installers may be hired to do the job.

Taking Your Home Off the Grid – Is it a Good Idea For You? By Patricia Hodge-Rendall

Environmental issues have been often discussed in the news over the last few years. Energy conservation and renewable energy have particularly been at the center of these discussions. You may be investigating the possibility of installing a solar or wind power system on your home. However, an important question will be: Will you be taking your home off the grid? If you are considering using solar power and wind power for your home you will need to decide if you want to be on the grid or off the grid. So what exactly is a grid? When it comes to solar, a grid is the power grid that is maintained by utility companies. When you pay your monthly utility bill you are paying for pulling power off of the utility grid. Taking your home off the grid by using solar and wind power is a way for you to make a statement of independence. In other words, if you don’t want to pay a monthly utility bill you can choose to handle your own electrical needs. The question is: do you want to do this? Taking your home off the grid by using solar and wind power will be more expensive than being on the grid. This will be true both in the short term and the long term. One of the first expenses you will have when you go off the grid will be for the batteries. Because you are not on the grid, you will need to store power into these batteries. The batteries will need to be replaced every so often and they can be expensive. When you are on the grid, your energy cost is lower mainly because you do not have to worry about storing the power you need, meaning no batteries to buy. You will only use the utility grid for your power. This is done through the use of a power meter but you should verify with the utility company before you do this. Once you are on their grid you will be able to feed power into your home’s system. When you are not at home the panel system will be feeding electricity into the grid. This will cause the meter to go backwards and your bill will go down if it is not eliminated altogether. Taking your home off the grid may be a good idea for a lot of different reasons. You will want to find out as much information as you can about it to determine if you want to go that route. If you want to be independent of the utility companies or if you live in an area that is remote and it will be too expensive for you to reach the grid than it is definitely a good idea to use solar and wind power for your home. Using clean, renewable energy may appeal to you. Once you have made the decision to use solar and/or wind power, your main dilemma will be whether you want to be on the grid or off the grid. You should contact your utility company and research your options before making your final decision. Patricia Hodge-Rendall is a ReMax Mississauga sales representative for RE/MAX Realty specialists.
