Off Grid Solar Systems With Battery Backup Information Guide

Off grid solar systems are great for those who live in remote locations where bringing in the electric grid is extremely expensive or inconvenient or those who prefer to not have a monthly bill with the electric bill at all.

Off grid solar systems from Silicon Solar will include several critical components, including:

High-Efficiency Solar Panels
Silicon Solar uses the most advanced and high-efficiency solar panels for our off grid solar systems. Designed and engineered to give you more power and a lower-cost, each solar panel used in our grid tie kits is approved and recommended for use all across the US and around the world.

Charge Controller
The charge controller is a critical component of any solar power system with a battery backup. Overcharging is a major killer of batteries and a charge controller will monitor the charge level of your batteries and shut down charging to avoid damage once your batteries are full.

Battery Backup
The battery backup is used in these off grid solar systems to provide power during the night or periods of bad weather when your solar panels can not generate enough power for you to use.

DC-AC Inverter
Solar panels and batteries generate and store power in DC (direct current), however nearly all home appliances and electronics use AC (alternating current) power that comes from the electric grid. A DC-AC inverter will transform the DC power from your solar power system into AC power that is useable right through your home's power outlets. A good, high-efficiency DC-AC inverter can make or break the performance and cost-effectiveness of a off grid solar system.

Other Important Components

  • Solar panel mounting hardware
  • Pre-cut wiring runs
  • Solar wiring combiner box
  • Battery storage box
  • On-location & remote (online) monitoring system

About Off Grid Residential PV Sytems

Off Grid residential PV systems are solar powered backup systems for your home that have extra-high capacity battery banks to provide long lasting power to your most important appliances when you need them.

Your residential PV kit comes with a high-powered battery backup system (which provides emergency load power for your home even when the electric grid is down during emergency situations). Grid-tie systems cannot provide power directly to your house during a power outage due to safety regulations, but an off-grid residential kit is available for your use at any time.

Starting with high-efficiency solar panels, your pre-packaged residential solar system will include:

  • High-efficiency solar panels
  • Charge controller
  • High-capacity battery backup bank
  • Professional-grade DC-AC inverter
  • Pre-cut wiring and combiners
  • Backup generator (optional, but recommended)
