Off-Grid Home Solar Power Systems

Off-Grid Home Solar Power Systems

An off-grid solar system is designed for the power needs of mid- to large-size homes. Unlike grid-tied solar systems, off-grid systems have no connection to the utility grid, and must make all the electricity necessary to power your home.

Off-grid solar systems operate from the stored energy in a battery bank. Solar panels generate power to charge the battery bank. Your off-grid solar system must be sized properly to meet your daily power needs and replace the stored energy pulled from the battery bank.

The custom-designed kits below include the major components needed for your off-grid system. Questions? Give us a call at 877-878-4060 and talk to one of our solar pros who will work with you to design an off-grid home solar system that meets your needs.

More Info on Off-Grid Home Solar Power Systems

Off-grid living is appealing for many reasons. Maybe your utility company is unreliable, or power from the utility company in your area is too expensive. Regardless of your reason(s) for going off-grid, the first step is to determine how much power you will need to produce and store.

6 Steps to Design a DIY Off Grid Solar Power System

Check out our video that outlines the 6 steps required to design a DIY off-grid solar system. We cover everything you need for a DIY solar powered system.

  1. Determining how much power you will need
  2. Calculating the amount of battery storage required
  3. Calculating the number of solar panels needed for your location
  4. Identifying a solar charge controller
  5. Selecting an Inverter
  6. Balance of System (BoS)

DIY Off-Grid Solar Power System Overview and Wiring

Are you planning on installing your off-grid solar system yourself? That’s great! We’re here to help. In the video above we walk you through wiring your solar system components together for a safe DIY solar installation. You will learn the basic components of an off-grid solar power system, with example schematics. More importantly, you'll learn how to safely wire and interconnect everything from your DIY solar panels, to your charge controller, battery bank, inverter, and balance of system components.

Using altE's Off Grid Solar Calculator
