There are currently three popular types of home solar power systems: on-grid; off-grid; and grid tie with battery backup. These three categories differ greatly in the way they connect to the typical electricity utility grid, called the local grid. On-grid systems are more directly tied to the utilities which provide power to residential homes. They are often sold and installed by the home owner himself for a low cost. Off-grid systems are much less common and installed by either a contractor or an investor for a little higher cost.
In this article we will take a look at two different types of home renewable energy systems which are quite popular: offshore wind turbines and luxury diesel generators. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages as a renewable energy system. In addition to these tips, I will also explain why luxury diesel generators are not as popular as they used to be.
After reading this article you should have some good tips on buying off-grid or grid-tie power systems for your residence or commercial building. Please note that most people who are interested in purchasing off-grid systems typically have little to no experience with power engineering, however it does not mean that you have to completely lack any experience. In fact, most power engineers are quite experienced with creating efficient systems using state of the art technology and power flow studies.
