3 Major Types of Solar Energy System You Can Install in Your Home

Updated: Dec 2, 2019

So you want to have solar panels installed in your home or office but don’t know where to start? You can begin by learning about the 3 types of solar energy systems you can choose from. We laid down a list of their pros and cons as well as the big differences between each one.

Grid-Tied Solar System

People usually lean into a grid-tied system when switching to solar energy for the first time. The reason it’s called “grid-tied” is that the solar panels are directly powering your home along with your electrical grid.

PROS: Your home is guaranteed to be harnessing enough power even on cloudy or rainy days; plus, it’s the most cost-efficient choice out of the 3 solar energy systems

CONS: You’ll still be dependent on another energy power supply on occasional events; it doesn’t power your home in the event of blackouts

Off-Grid Solar System

If you’re really adamant about using solar power every day even with low sunlight, then the off-grid solar system is for you. It can serve as an energy source year-round without dependence on electrical panels.

PROS: It is the most eco-friendly solar system because you’ll be able to rely solely on the earth’s natural resources and that means less toxic emission and heat.

CONS: It is also the most expensive solar system to install since it requires batteries and inverters for electric storage and device longevity.

Hybrid Solar System

The Hybrid solar system is a mix of both on-grid and off-grid solar systems, which means it powers up your home during the daytime and stores it in the battery for night time usage.

PROS: Utilizes renewable energy with all-day power supply; It offers a huge sustainable effort

CONS: Lower battery life compared to the off-grid solar system; plus, it has a more complicated solar energy controlling process.

Knowing the right solar system for you is the first step to a more sustainable lifestyle. You’re not only saving on electricity costs, but you’re also saving the planet.
