WHAT IS AN OFF-GRID SYSTEM?

Off-grid PV systems are an exciting segment of the alternative energy sector. It is a sector that covers so much more than just cabins and homes. Solar has the ability to cost-effectively bring electricity to remote locations where it would be too costly for grid-connections.

WHAT IS A GRID-TIE SYSTEM?

The grid-tie systems are the most popular for the residential urban homeowner. This is when the existing electrical grid is already operational and you add solar production capabilities. The grid is used in a way similar to a battery. When you produce more than you are using you will export the excess power to the grid, and when you are using more power then you are making, you will import it.
