Isolated Photovoltaic Installation

 

An isolated photovoltaic installation is a sustainable way of generating energy. It uses sunlight to convert solar energy into electricity, which can be used to power electrical devices. Isolated photovoltaic installations can be used in areas where there is no access to the electricity grid or in areas where the electricity supply is interrupted.

Cases in which this installation can be done:

  • Isolated photovoltaic installation is an ideal option for those who do not have a connection to any electrical network, for example in remote houses. In this case, the sun’s energy is used to generate electricity through solar panels and it is stored in batteries for later use, in this way, more sustainable energy is achieved and unnecessary spending is avoided.
  • The house is connected but isolated from the electricity grid and instead uses a sustainable photovoltaic installation that stores energy in batteries for use during the night.
  • The house is isolated from the power grid during the day, and connected to the power grid at night. The isolated photovoltaic installation allows the house to produce its own energy during the day, in a sustainable way, and use it at night.
 

In these last two cases, a bidirectional counter is necessary.

 

Advantages

  • They provide energy during night hours.
  • Everything consumed is free since we generate it ourselves.
  • Expandable as needed and can be improved in the future.
  • Savings in connection to the electricity grid.

 

Disadvantages

  • Batteries are required which are expensive and increase the cost of installation.
  • Reduced performance in case of low radiation.
