Solar energy system overview

The main components of an off-grid solar system are:

  • PV panels also known as solar panels.
  • Charge controllers for regulating the voltage and current of the solar panels.
  • Batteries used to store the energy you generate during the day.
  • Inverters are used to create mains type electricity (230V AC, 50Hz) from the batteries (12V, 24V or 48V DC)
  • Back-up generators for those rare occasions in Spain when the sun doesn't shine!
