Key Points

  • An off-grid solar system is a solar panel system that generates electricity, stores that power in solar batteries, and runs independently from the power grid
  • The cost of an off-grid solar system has an even wider range because there are a variety of sizes, applications, and components that impact the price
  • An alternative to off-grid solar systems is a hybrid system, which remains tied to the grid but includes a solar battery bank to store excess energy
