Off Grid Solar Power System: Cut your electric bill now

By Jevan Soyer. With the pending increase in fuel prices, which would lead to an increase in electricity rates, you may be considering ways to save money on your electric bill. This article talks about an Off Grid Solar Power System that might be just what you need.

There are many ways that you may have already tried to lower your electricity bill. Migrating from incandescent, to compact florescent, and even LED bulbs is one way.

You may have started monitoring the use of your water heater, clothes dryer and air conditioning, and using them less. Also, you may have gone as far as to use less lighting at night and scold your children for opening the refrigerator door too often.

After all of that, the electricity bill still would not budge. This is where an Off Grid Solar Power System comes in.

Why you should own an Off Grid Solar Power System

News from around the world do not make the future outlook for a decrease in energy prices likely, leaving you to wonder what else could be done to get this essential bill under control.

Our dependency on electricity only becomes evident during a blackout, which seems to be happening more frequently, and lasting longer.

As governments around the world transition away from internal combustion engine vehicles to electric vehicles, we become more dependent on electricity and the grid.

With more demand on the grid, would come more blackouts. This is not just a minor inconvenience, but can affect your ability to earn a living, especially if you work from home.

There is also the aspect of security, your cameras, sensors, alarms and even lights cannot work during a blackout. With the prolonged blackouts, even an 8-hour back-up battery is no longer sufficient.

The solution offered by an Off Grid Solar Power System

One way to eliminate your dependency on the electrical grid is to simply generate your own electricity. There is enough energy hitting the earth every day to power the entire earth for a whole year. So, you would just have to catch this energy using solar panels.

The only hurdle would be cost. Governments the world over have offered tax incentives in the form of rebates. This means you still have to spend money up front that you may not have, and claim the rebate.

In other cases, they have removed the tariffs/duties on solar panels but left them on batteries, the most expensive part of any “off grid” system. It seems counterintuitive, but there is still hope.

Build as you go

One of the nice things about switching to solar, you can start small and scale up as your budget allows. An example is you could start with a 1Kwh system, and over time, keep scaling up until you are completely self-sufficient and can uncouple from the grid. You can use this starter kit as an emergency backup, or run critical power-hungry devices off of it.

Depending on your location and the arrangements in place with your local electricity provider, you can sell your excess power back to the utility for a credit during the day.

Then, use these credits during the night, and in effect using the grid as a battery. If your utility company does not allow this, then you may have to start with a small system and work your way up.

Based on current electricity rates, a system for your current needs will pay for itself within 5 to 8 years. If rates are really increased, the return on investment would only be 3 to 5 years.

So, financing could be an option, as you would be able to pay for the power you need up front, maintaining your current expenditure on power for the next 3 to 5 years. After that, you will have no bills for the next 25 years, at least when it comes to electricity.

What size Off Grid Solar Power System do you need?

The easiest way to know what size Off Grid Solar Power System you would need is to check your electricity bill, particularly the bill that you got last Christmas. This is generally the largest bill for the year.

Most houses have Christmas trees, lighted decorations, and do a lot of entertaining and cleaning. So, your consumption rate would be highest during this period and you would have a number with which to start.

If you have young children in the home, looking to do additions to your home, or considering converting to an electric vehicle, you might need to consider these factors when making your decision to convert to an Off Grid Solar Power System.

Here is an example. Since the pandemic, in order to save money, your household have stopped using the air conditioning and dryer. You have also stopped using your electric range. If your intention is to make full use of this free energy, then you may need to budget for that when selecting your system.
