Off-grid and Grid Tied Systems
What is the difference between a Grid Tied System and a Off-grid system? Well, it’s as simple as one being tied to the national grid allowing for ‘back-up’ power from the grid and having power from the solar panels and battery storage supply; the other is being separate from the grid and is fully self-sufficient where the power solely comes from the solar panels and battery storage.
The Grid-tied system allows households or businesses to have access to the grid in case of any energy shortfalls in energy production due to bad weather and it allows the option to sell power back to the municipality. This is also the cheaper option as clients will not need to
have as many solar panels and batteries as an off-grid system.
Off-grid systems allow for businesses and households who are not close to the national grid to have a constant supply of power, or it allows our clients to be fully self-sufficient and not be affected by load shedding, any other forms of power failures caused by grid maintenance or
substation failures. This, however, is the more costly option but creates a sense if independence for our clients.
