There are many reasons why Albertan's are choosing to go Off-Grid. The cost to bring power to your home may be more expensive then installing some solar modules, charge controller, inverter / rectifier, generator & batteries. These systems are much more complex then a grid-tied system because they are tailor made for your homes energy consumption. They need to have perfect balance to ensure your generator is running as little as possible. We recommend at least 3 days of autonomy during our design stage which will give you a minimum of 3 days of energy storage should there be little sun during that time your generator will kick in to charge the batteries. It is important to note that there may be battery maintenance involved in these systems depending on the battery chosen. There are also no rebates available for any off-grid installation in Alberta.
