Solar Energy Systems: Off Grid – Solar Home System

What is it

SHS-1

Solar Home Systems (SHS) are small to mid-size systems using photovoltaic solar energy and battery storage to provide electricity where there is no access to the grid. Solar energy is harnessed through photovoltaic panels installed nearby the house or building and is connected to a battery bank. During night hours, the battery bank supplies the electricity to specific appliances. Such systems are individually sized to suit the end users’ needs and can be used for households, offices or business entities that are scattered throughout different areas or entire villages.

In recent years, Sunlabob has been awarded several large-scale World Bank funded projects to be implemented around the world.

How it works

A Solar Home System consists of the following components:

  • Solar panels that deliver electricity from the sun
  • A battery set that stores the electricity produced by the solar panel and can deliver it at any time of the day
  • A charge controller that protects the battery from overcharging

A Solar Home System works all year round, without the need for any other power source. The battery bank is designed to have at least 5 days autonomy, which means that even if there are five consecutive very cloudy days, the system is still able to work. We offer a variety of sizes from 20 W to 150 W and higher.

During night hours, the battery bank supplies the electricity to specific appliances. Such systems are individually sized to suit the end users’ needs and can be used for households, offices or business entities that are scattered throughout different areas or entire villages.

Applications

Solar Energy Systems have various applications, such as in household application to power lights and electrical appliances. They can also be used to power health stations located in villages, schools, small businesses, etc.
