Can I go completely off-grid with solar?
You can go completely off-grid with solar power, but it depends on a variety of different factors such as how much energy you use, the amount of sunlight available in your location, and the size and efficiency of your solar panel system.
In order to go completely off grid you would need to have a solar panel system that generates enough electricity to meet your energy needs, and a battery storage system to store the excess energy generated during the day for use at night, on cloudy days or where you power usage exceeds the power supplied from the solar panels. You would also need an inverter to convert the direct current (DC) electricity produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used by your household appliances and devices.
If you're going completely off the grid it is usually a good idea to have a backup generator because the weather can be unpredictable and if any other situation arises where you may not being able to get enough power from your solar panels you will have a back up ready to go.
Going completely off grid means that you are responsible for your own power generation and maintenance of your systems but it also means you can be somewhere that isn't reliant on the grid.
Our engineers will often tell you that it's a good idea if you have mains power already to have that compliment your new solar system and to keep it in and they can always advise you where the building doesn't have mains power at all. Whatever your situation is our team will have the answers to find the perfect solar off grid systems for you.
How many solar panels do you need to go off the grid?
This is another question that is completely dependent on your usage needs however as an average in the UK running a small, energy efficient building completely off grid could use a system potentially as small as 2.6kw but running something like the average home with three bedrooms completely off grid would require around 4.8kw of solar panel output.
