Off-grid power systems often consist of a combination of renewable energies. While every off-grid system is different, based on the location, budget, choice in type of renewable energy used, and the power production required, there are some commonalities. One or more renewable energy sources are used, a battery bank is required for energy storage, and an inverter is necessary for power conversion.
Off-grid power brings true energy independence, and gives “living off the land” a new meaning. An off-grid electrical power system can power your mountain house, a remote fishing/hunting cabin, or even your full-time home. There are a few reasons for why people decide to go “off the grid”. For some, it means freedom from reliance on foreign oil, or independence from utility companies. For others, it’s a commitment to renewable energy and sustainability. For the remainder, it’s because and off grid power system is their only option.
