When should I consider going off-grid? Nov 03, 2023

If you are a commercial business, office or residential homeowner in an urban area, loadshedding might be distressing, but the chances are that a fully off-grid solution won’t make sense for you. By opting for a grid-tied energy solution, you can enjoy both the benefits of a solar PV system and grid connection while avoiding the rolling blackouts caused by loadshedding. This brings you savings on your electrical bill, energy security during times of unstable grid power, and some independence from future unpredictable electricity tariff rises. For some, you may only need a loadshedding battery backup system, while others may require a dedicated grid-tied system.

Fully off-grid energy solutions are more suitable if:

  • You live in a very rural area where there is poor grid infrastructure.
  • Most of your monthly electric bill is paying for your grid connection and not your actual energy usage.
  • You have sufficient space to install an off-grid system
  • You have a sufficient budget to install an off-grid system.
  • You understand the limitations of the renewable energy system, and that living off-grid with solar photovoltaic power will take some lifestyle adjustments in your energy usage patterns.

    If you are unsure whether a backup off-grid solar photovoltaic energy solution would make sense for you, then please contact us (link to page) for further help. Part of our services as a solar company and solar installers is assessing which solution will be best for your unique situation. In some cases, going off-grid may not be the best option for you, but it is important to consider the potential benefits of backup off-grid energy and weigh it against your specific needs and circumstances. Ultimately, the decision to go off-grid or not is a personal one and should be based on a thorough understanding of the costs and benefits of both off-grid and grid-tied systems.
