Live Independent Of The Energy Grid
Create your future with renewable Energy Storage. Unreliable and expensive traditional energy solutions shouldn’t keep you from living where and how you want.
Off-grid living is becoming an increasingly viable choice for those looking for an eco-friendly way to live self-sufficiently. Best of all, using off-grid power systems allows you to have all the convenience that electricity offers without having to run power lines out to a remote property that may be prone to outages.
As of 2013, current estimates are that 1.7 billion people in the world live off the grid. According to Home Power Magazine, at least 180,000 families are living off the grid in the United States and that number increases each year. Living off the grid requires sustainable living. So, you’ll need to find your own source of heat and electricity without the help of our modern-day conveniences. Solar power is the most popular and available option when it comes to off-grid energy.
How does off-grid solar storage work?
Solar panels first convert solar energy or sunlight into DC power using what is known as the photovoltaic (PV) effect. The DC power can then be stored in a battery or converted by a solar battery inverter into AC power which can be used to run home appliances.

POWER OUTAGE PROTECTION
Why Should You Be Concerned?
The Ecological Threat Register (ETR) shows that the world has witnessed a tenfold increase in natural disasters since the 1960s. Power outages are impacting trillions of people globally. The devastating power outage that occurred in Texas in February 2021 caused 14.5 million people to lose power for almost 10 days. As a result, 700 people died. If the power is out for more than 4 hours, you will start to lose access to essentials resources such as food, water, and medication. Being without power can also cause serious health conditions such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, fainting, and hypothermia. Hypothermia happens when a person’s core body temperature is lower than 35°C (95°F).
Reduce Peak Charges
If your utility charges Time-of-Use (TOU) rate, you may be paying 2-3 times more for the electricity that you consume during the peak hours.
Time of use rates are a kind of electricity billing arrangement in which the price of electricity changes based on the time of day. They make electricity more expensive during “peak hours,” when there is high demand, and less expensive during hours of low demand.
You can avoid the high peak charges by storing the energy from the solar panels or from the grid when electricity rates are cheapest and discharging the battery power during peak usage periods.
Zero Grid Export
So many of you live in an area with an abundance of solar while your electric power is very expensive and unreliable. Some utilities will not allow you to sell your excess production back, or will just pay you pennies for feeding your precious solar energy back to the grid.
The use of solar energy for self-consumption (or zero grid export) is your best option by reducing your electricity cost and providing sustainable living.
How does a zero grid export solar system work?
During the day the solar panels generate power for your home; and the excess power will be stored in a battery for later use. Your solar storage system will be your primary power source while still connected to the utility grid.
