“Solar energy is bound to be in our future.
There’s a kind of inevitability about it.”


A grid-tied solar power system captures the sun’s energy during the day through a series of solar panels and feeds the energy to a grid-tied inverter that converts DC power to AC power. The AC power is then used to supply the electrical needs of a property. Any excess energy generated can be fed back into the grid, provided the utility company accepts it.

The main advantage of a grid-tied system is its ability to provide cost savings by offsetting traditional power usage. However, during load-shedding events, a pure grid-tied system may be affected by power outages. To avoid this, an on-site generator or battery backup solution can be integrated with the solar system, ensuring uninterrupted power supply. This solution balances the desire to minimize capital expenditures while developing a long-term solar power solution to meet day-to-day power requirements.

Connecting a non-site generator to the solar system allows for solar power generation/consumption during loadshedding. Due to the solar system absorbing the majority of the load during power outages, Genset integration allows the generator to run on minimal capacity (30%-50%).
Adding a solar generator to an enterprise’s energy mix can reduce their reliance on diesel fuel by up to70%, lower costs, and decrease their carbon foot print.


Combining solar power with battery backup systems provides a versatile and reliable solution for energy needs. Hybrid systems allow for cost savings by leveraging the affordability of solar energy and incorporating storage solutions to reduce operational downtime. By using solar power during peak sunlight hours and storing excess energy in batteries for use during low-light hours, businesses can optimize their energy usage and reduce their dependence on grid power. This not only provides cost savings but also increases energy efficiency and reliability.


Off-grid systems are an excellent choice for clients who prioritize self-sufficiency, especially in remote locations without access to traditional electricity utilities. These systems are designed to operate independently of the grid, utilizing renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydroelectric power. Off-grid systems are a reliable and sustainable solution, providing power to homes and businesses even in the absence of a traditional grid infrastructure. However, off-grid systems require careful planning and consideration to ensure they are appropriately sized to meet energy needs and incorporate suitable storage solutions to guarantee a consistent power supply.


During load-shedding or power outages, a backup system can provide critical energy to maintain essential loads. These systems are designed to activate automatically when the primary power source fails, ensuring uninterrupted power supply to important appliances and systems. Backup solutions can take various forms, including diesel or gas generators, batteries, or hybrid systems that combine multiple sources of energy. It’s essential to size the backup system appropriately to meet the required load and incorporate suitable storage solutions to ensure sufficient energy supply during prolonged outages. Proper planning and installation are crucial to ensure backup systems operate efficiently and safely during emergencies.
