"Off Grid" solar photovoltaic systems provide electrical power to locations not served by any sort of public utility.
Off grid systems are extremely flexible in design and can be set up to provide something as simple - limited DC power; to very complex three phase commercial voltages to run major pieces of equipment.
Since electricity supply and demand must always be equal (otherwise equipment damage will occur); off grid systems nearly always contain some form of energy storage mechanism, usually batteries. The design of the storage solution for an off grid installation adds an additional level of design complexity. For example it may be desireable to have a large battery bank, connected to a small array if there is a large very intermittent load to be powered.
Here at CES our designers have the training and experience to design remote site solar systems with commercial levels of reliability and performance. We can support small super ruggedized remote station power sets all the way through megawatt scale remote site power.Off Grid System Photos
