Solar arrays consisting of a single module connected into a battery date back to the 1950’s. A simple setup used by the Telecom companies to provide power in remote locations. With growing grid instability and preparation for natural disasters, this grass roots design is re-emerging.
Most people are looking for a way to have backup power in the event of a grid outage. And a simple solar module connected into a battery is a great way to do that. This grass roots design doesn't require fuel or the utility grid to operate. With the addition of a battery, you can operate the system at anytime of the day. Even better, is the quiet peaceful production making it perfect for locations with ordinances. There is one exception though. Because most people want a system that can power AC appliances we must introduce one necessary component to our setup. The modern version of the grass roots design now incorporates an inverter. This addition greatly increases the versatility of the system. You can run DC appliances directly off of the battery and AC appliances off of the inverter.
