Natural resources play a key role in the development of a country, just like the most important resource, the sun does. Other such natural resources include coal, natural gas but they are either not environmentally-friendly or limited for which they cannot be used for longer periods of time. But the sun is such a resource that will not stop providing sunlight. So, it’s the most suitable choice at the moment. It can save your energy costs to a large extent. All you need to do is to install solar panels in your home or at your workplace.

If you plan to do so, you must be wondering how many solar panels will be required for your home or office and how much space you have. Solar PV systems have so many sizes ranging from one or two panels to something which will cover your home’s entire roof. However, this mainly depends upon how much is the electricity usage of your house and how much money you’ll be paying for this purpose. All these factors must be taken into account before installing a stand-alone solar PV system. A stand-alone system mainly comprises a number of panels joined together to give a combined power output.

Where can the Stand-Alone Systems be Used?

A stand-alone solar system is better to be used in areas where any other power source is either not practical or not available. In such a case, it is better to have a stand-alone system that will provide the users with enough electricity required for their homes. Also, it’s a suitable way to not indulge in taking electricity from national power lines which requires the use of cables and costs more. All in all, anyone who doesn’t have access to electricity from Mains Power can avail this offer.

Components of a Stand-Alone Solar System

Various Components of a Stand-Alone Solar System include:

  • Batteries

Batteries prove to be the backbone of any solar system as they tend to store power within them but within a stand-alone solar system, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to include batteries or not depending on your budget and space available.

  • Controller

A controller is used to avoid the over-charging of batteries which will result in damaged batteries. So, your home must have enough space to install a controller to get rid of any issue.

  • Inverter 

An inverter is another addition to the equipment required for installing a stand-alone solar system. Despite the fact that inverter is optional, you may use it to convert DC power into AC electricity.

Take into account all the equipment and then see whether you have enough space to install a stand-alone solar system.
