As soon as you have produced your monocrystalline solar panels. The next step is to put them into a system which can use all the electricity which has been produced. So you either feed the electricity to the grid, store it in batteries or power your appliances. Remember that to ensure you get a fully working system that is capable of producing enough power to provide for all you home electricity needs, plan what you are going to do and always plan with the end goal in mind.

Transportable Solar Powered Generators

This is the simplest of all the systems. All you need is an inverter, charge controller, a battery and your PV solar panel.

The important thing here is that you can increase the capacity of the system very easily just by adding more solar panels. The solar panel produces DC current. This needs to be converted to an AC current which is the job of the inverter.

If you find yourself in the enviable position of having excess electricity, instead of wasting it, you can feed it to a battery bank. Not your normal car batteries.

Grid-Tied Solar Generator

If you are connected to the national electricity grid then you should definitely consider this system. What you do is not waste time with batteries, you can send the extra power straight back to the grid. This has the effect of reversing your meter and so your electric utility supplier will credit you on your bill.

After you build a solar panel, you will appreciate how easy they are to make. Let’s say you build a solar panel a week and over a year you built 40 of them. This could turn it a very profitable income stream which will not only pay for all your power bills but may also pay for all your household bills!

On-Grid Solar Power Generator with a Battery Store

To add more security to your power supply, you may want to consider having a battery bank to go with your grid tied system. For example, if it is a cloudy day and you are using some DIY tools which demand a lot of electricity. The battery bank is a passive supply of electricity, which has been previously charged up with any unused electricity generated over the past couple of days.

Off-Grid Solar Power Generator

If you are not connected to the grid then you will want to have a battery bank of some considerable size. By doing so you will not waste any of the electricity you have generated.

Batteries perform better when they are warm so it is wise to invest in a battery box and keep them in your garage. A battery box also doubles up as offering a safety feature, so kids or animals don’t get to close. If a dog weed on a battery it would do a lot of damage let alone what it might do to the dog!

The other thing to bear in mind is that for long cloudy periods or during the winter when you don’t get much sun, it would be worthwhile connecting a traditional generator to your solar powered system.

Different Types of Solar Powered Systems For the Home

  • On Grid + battery bank + generator
  • Grid tied systems
  • Portable solar power pack
  • Grid tied setup + battery bank
