How to live off the grid in the city


The increasing demand for power leads to insufficient power supply, so it is very important to understand how to live off the grid in the city. Off grid solar system has become the primary choice of more and more countries and regions.


How to live off the grid in the city


How to live off the grid in the city? In some remote countries and regions, there is a shortage of power supply or the main power supply can only supply power for a few hours a day, but the demand for power is increasing, which is very inconvenient for daily life, work and travel; And sometimes, for people living in mountainous areas or farms, there is even no power grid. In these cases, how can we improve the quality of life when the city is disconnected from the power grid. So the following content is Sunrise Power's solution for how to live off the grid in the city.


Now more and more people choose to use solar power system to generate the electricity offer to the loads/machine. We call DC to AC converter or off grid solar power system. It just need four parts: solar inverter, solar charge controller ,solar panel and solar battery. 

The off grid solar system does not rely on the urban grid. When there is solar energy in the daytime, the solar energy is absorbed by the solar panel, and then the regulation of the solar charging controller and the inverter are converted into AC power to supply power for the load. At the same time, the power is stored by the battery. When there is no solar energy at night, the DC power of the battery continues to supply power for the AC load through the conversion of the inverter. Under the combined effect of solar energy mode and battery mode, we can still work and live normally off the grid in the city.


The working principle of off the grid solar power system uses the photoelectric effect to directly convert solar radiation energy into electrical energy. The basic device for light-to-electricity conversion is solar cells. A solar cell is a device that directly converts sunlight energy into electrical energy due to the photovoltaic effect. It is a semiconductor photo-diode. When the sun shines on the photo-diode, the photo-diode will convert the sun's light energy into electrical energy and generate electricity. When many cells are connected in series or in parallel, it can become a solar cell array with relatively large output power. Solar cells are a promising new type of power source with three major advantages: permanence, cleanliness and flexibility. Solar cells have a long life, as long as the sun exists, solar cells can be used for a long time with one investment and do not cause environmental pollution.

Sunrise Power focuses on the manufacture and design of off grid inverters. Our off grid solar systems have been sold to more than 80 countries and regions. Our solar experts can provide free off grid solar system design solutions.
