On or off-grid

On or off-grid ?

In solar installations we seperate two main types, on-grid (sometimes refered to as netgrid or gridtied installations) and off-grid (also known as stand-alone) In the Netherlands we usually sell on-grid for multiple reasons:

  • We don’t always have enough physical space to cover all the power consumption on a house.
  • The power grid is every where and since it’s mostly underground, it’s very dependable.
  • To much generated solar power that flows back into the grid gives nice financial compensation.

We also checked in Georgia, and found that things are a lot different, that combined with tiny living, we liked our offgrid stand-alone solution.
