For a secure power supply – even where there’s no access to the public grid
Off-grid systems are photovoltaic systems that are not connected, or only partly connected to the national grid, whether they are small, self-sufficient systems or supplying a whole village in off-grid regions all over Africa.
In a PV diesel hybrid system, a diesel generator supports the PV system as additional power source in case more power is needed than the application can produce. A fuel-save control regulates the connections and shuts down the diesel generator, depending on the electricity demand. The integration of a battery storage system enables any surplus solar power to be saved and used as needed.
Safe, cost-effective and environmentally friendly – comprehensive PV diesel hybrid systems are the ideal solution for sustainable and long-term power supply in Africa.
