The “cheapest electricity in history” is produced by solar energy, according to the World Energy Outlook 2020 published by the International Energy Agency. Solar energy is appealing to many homes because it is accessible, reasonably priced, and environmentally benign. One needs to become familiar with the different types of solar power systems out there before switching to one of the most effective and environmentally friendly power sources.
The two most popular methods for using solar energy are:
hybrid solar power technology
Grid-connected solar power option
Both systems generate power from solar PV panels, which are then converted into a form that can be used by a household and delivered by an inverter. Depending on the needs, the generated solar energy can subsequently be used by the system itself, stored, or sold back to the grid.
1- HYBRID SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS
In terms of solar energy output, a hybrid solar energy system is comparable to a grid-tied system, but it also has the advantage of grid independence. Regardless of the grid’s availability, it runs constantly. An energy backup feature of a hybrid solar energy system allows it to store surplus energy that can be used at night. A hybrid solar energy system continues to function without interruption even in the case of a power loss or blackout since it has this capacity to store energy. Furthermore, peak period usage, which is frequently charged at a significantly greater rate than off-peak consumption, can be reduced with the aid of effective energy storage. The remaining solar energy that is not used by the system itself or stored can then be exported back to the grid. solar hybrid energy
2- GRID-TIED SOLAR ENERGY SOLUTIONS
Grid-tied solar energy systems are directly connected to the grid and cannot function when the grid is down. They can only generate solar energy when the sun is out and the grid is on. These systems are less effective as compared to hybrid solar energy systems, as they cannot generate power during load shedding and extensive power outages. Grid-tied solar energy systems also lack energy backups. So excess energy cannot be stored for future consumption. However, these systems do allow net metering, which means excess electricity can be sold back to the grid.
Even though grid-tied solar energy systems are inexpensive, they cannot store electricity and are unhelpful during power outages. This makes them extremely dependent on another backup source (for continuous generation) and on the net-metering regime for electricity savings (since self-consumption is extremely low).
DECENT SKY ENERGY THE WORLD’S SMARTEST SOLAR SYSTEM
Decent Sky Energy Smart Solar plus Storage System is the world’s smartest solar system. Decent Sky Energy’s hybrid system uses lithium-ion batteries for energy backup. Lithium-ion batteries are safer, more effective, and efficient when compared with lead-acid batteries. They are easy to install and require little maintenance. They also have high battery energy density, which means the batteries can store more energy in a smaller space.
Decent Sky Energy lithium-ion batteries have a lifespan of up to 10 years and do not require replacements as UPS systems do. UPS systems cannot bear heavy energy loads and need replacements every 1 or 2 years. Moreover, these systems can cause damage to electrical appliances as the power supply often fluctuates.
Decent Sky Energy lithium-ion batteries are also far more efficient as compared to generators as they switch on automatically whenever the light goes out. On the other hand, generators require expensive fuel refills, maintenance, and a dedicated individual who can manually turn them on in the event of load shedding. Generators are also extremely noisy, eco-unfriendly, and interrupt the electricity supply.
Decent Sky Energy Smart Solar plus Storage System has its own AI-based energy management plan that runs Decent Sky Energy Smart Inverter, Decent Sky Energy lithium-ion batteries pack, and its highly efficient solar panels. Decent Sky Energy offers an all-in-one solution for all your energy needs with NOC- Decent Sky Energy’s exclusive Network Operations center that operates 24/7 to provide support and monitor the health of your Decent Sky Energy Smart Solar plus Storage System.
