An alternative for conventionally powered remote homes, rest-stops, caravans and yachts running on diesel generators is stand-alone solar solution. In this system, photovoltaic panels are used to power electric loads by converting the energy in the sunlight to electricity.
The charge controller is responsible for regulating the charging/discharging cycles of the batteries. The inverter is responsible for converting DC electricity to AC electricity. The batteries are an integral part of the system since it isn’t connected to the grid. The stand-alone solar solution can be a superior choice economically for homes, businesses, and street-lighting and communication towers in off-grid remote areas.
