With over 30 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of custom backup generators for solar systems, the backup generators used by Solar Power Systems are on of the best and reliable generators on the market.
Why a backup-generator?
When you live off-grid, your solar panels will be the only source of energy. Most off-grid solar systems are designed with 3 days of autonomy. This means that the system will save energy in its batteries, in order to supply your house with energy, even when there has been no sunlight for more than 3 days.
When there is no or little sunlight for more than 3 days, you will run out of electricity. This is where a backup generator comes in. The system will know when the electricity inside the batteries of the solar system is almost depleted, and will automatically turn on the backup generator. Depending on the configuration of the generator, it will supply the house with electricity, and can even charge the batteries.
The first question you will have to ask yourself when choosing a generator for your home is what the generator will be used for:
1: A occasionally inhabited home (for example mid-weeks or weekends)
2: A permanently inhabited home
When we are talking about a occasionally inhabited home, we would advise a 3000 RPM generator.
When we are talking about a permanently inhabited home, we would advise a 1500 RPM generator.
The generators will use either Diesel or Petrol.
Because of their 30 years of experience and because they are made on the Costa Blanca. This is a huge advantage when it comes to service and maintenance.
These generators come with sound dampening casings. Houses that are completely off-grid are often in the campo, where it is quite. The last thing you want there is a generator that makes a noise. These generators come with a casing that is placed on/around the generator, damping the noise.
Choosing the right system for your requirements can be hard and time-consuming. At Solar Power Systems we would be happy to help you with more information and choosing the right system for your needs. Do not hesitate to contact us or visit our webshop!
