What are the benefits of using solar off-grid?

1.Avoid blackouts

Power outages often occur at the worst possible times, making living conditions uncomfortable. They can be caused by rain, snow, or high winds, which can damage wires and equipment.

Using solar off-grid means you are not tied to power outages, which means you rely on your own electricity production.

If the grid fails, your home will not be affected because your backup battery storage system will kick in.

Going off the grid is a great option for people who want to be prepared for various catastrophes that could lead to long-term power outages so they can survive in relative comfort.

 

2.Lower and save on your utility bills

Relying on your own renewable energy eliminates your common dependence on any kind of fossil fuels such as: coal, gas, etc.

Fossil fuels are not renewable or sustainable and as such are finite resources that will be depleted after many years of use. That’s why fossil fuel prices have been rising, not falling, for years.

On the other hand, the price of solar energy has been falling dramatically over the past 5 years. Although, the initial investment cost of this green technology will be somewhat expensive, but the low monthly fees and low maintenance costs make up for this in the long run.

3.Keep the environment clean and reduce pollution

A high quality solar panel installation can last up to 20-30 years.

This means that within 30 years, you will be able to generate your own clean energy from a single unit. This is more environmentally friendly than long-term dependence on any fossil fuels.

In fact, we compared the two energy sources to see how much CO2 they produce. Solar PV uses about 50 grams of CO2 per kilowatt-hour, compared to 980 grams of CO2 per kilowatt-hour for coal, which essentially means that solar technology uses about 20 times less energy than coal.

Reducing your carbon footprint and saving money in the long run are two of the main reasons why more and more people are using solar off-grid.
