PV SOLAR SYSTEMS

There are three types of solar system :
STAND ALONE : A stand alone system is typically used when there is no public electricity power available. This type of system is fully independent of the grid power and therefore there is no interaction whatsoever with the power grid. The size of the solar array, other system components and the battery reserve capacity should be properly sized to provide the desired power requirements. These systems can start from relatively small systems, but can be expanded. This type of system has no restriction and can be installed practically anywhere.

GRID-TIE : This system does not have a battery or related battery equipment. It has one function only. It feeds all electric power generated by the solar panels through a mains synchronized high quality inverter and offsets the power you would normally consume from the electricity company. It slows, stops or reverses your electricity meter depending on the time of day, the loads present and the size of the solar system installed. This type of system is becoming popular because there are no batteries to replace and the system costs less than its "grid-interactive" counterpart. For areas where there are few electricity power failures this is an ideal system. These systems are expandable. They are simple in nature, comprised primarily of the solar panels and mains synchronized high quality inverters.

GRID-INTERACTIVE: This system has a battery and additional controls. It can either feed into the electricity meter to slow or in some cases reverse it (depending on the meter) when excess power is present and it can provide backup power during electricity failures. This is basically the same type of system used in homes that are completely off-grid. Depending on the size of this system and the appliances or devices requiring power, it can support an entire home or just the items that are considered the most necessary during power failures. These systems are more expensive because of the battery reserve capacity and additional controls required in the system.
For whatever type of system you require, we shall come up with proper design, supply install and maintain your system as per your energy demands.
