#5. Off-Grid 2kW Solar System

An off grid solar system allows you to store solar power in solar batteries for later use, during the power cuts or when sun is not available. Off-grid is also known as a stand-alone solar power system or battery-based system. Similarly, this 2kW off grid solar system has batteries in it for power backup. Solar panel that comes along with the system will generate electricity and run your load directly on first priority. In case, solar panels are unable to bear your connected load, then solar battery will helps you to run your connected load.

Expert Advice

We recommend you to go for off-grid solar system, because it will run your load on first priority and balance power will be fed to the battery bank. Also, 2 batteries of 150Ah capacity are sufficient to store extra surplus power. You don’t need an on-grid solar system for 2kW capacity.

In such a way, you don’t have to invest on net-metering. At same cost you will have a luxury of independent off-grid system with battery bank.

Frequently Asked Question

For installing 2kW solar power system, 6 square meter shadow free space is required.

With 2 kilowatt solar system, you can efficiently run your load up to 1600 watt. Air conditioner is not recommended on this system. But if your AC and refrigerator consumes the power under the limit of 1600 watt than you can run the both together.

As an average 2kW solar system can generate 8 units per day over a year. The generation of the solar panel depend on the availability of sunlight.

It depends upon the rating of solar panel. If the solar panels are of 335 watt than only 6 panels are required.

 

The average payback time of a 2kW solar system is 3 to 5 years.

2kW solar system is available in three types:

You can install it on your rooftop or at any shadow free area. For installing 2kW solar power system 200 square feet area is required.

 

All types of solar systems are best at their own way. But when it comes to install a solar system than you should keep in mind some points that are mentioned below:

  • Export to grid + Saving = On grid solar system
  • Backup + Saving = Off grid solar system
  • Export to grid + Backup + Saving = Hybrid solar system

No, each solar system has its own voltage requirements. In 2kW solar system, you will have to fix minimum 2 batteries. If required, you can choose less Ah batteries, but quantity should be 2.

No, if you are buying a complete solar system than all its accessories will come with it. There is no need to buy them separately. But if you are buying solar system piece by piece from one shop to another then you need to buy it yourself.
