An off-grid solar power system provides power independent of a utility to Denver properties. Such systems typically employ an array of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to produce electricity from the sun, as well as a large battery bank in which to store it for whenever power is needed. The typical solar array of a Denver home is sized large enough to recharge the battery bank compltetely on a daily basis. Because solar modules make DC power, the same type of electrical charge stored by solar batteries, an inverter is used to provide regular 120 or 240-volt AC power to the electric panel of your Denver residence. A complete off-grid solar system can also use an AC generator, fueled by propane or natural gas, as a backup should there be unexpected loads or insufficient sun with which to recharge the battery bank. Denver off-grid solar systems are typically designed with a battery bank large enough to meet the planned electrical loads for up to three days without solar recharging, which is typically enough to get through most storms.
Off-grid solar panels can be mounted on roofs, poles, or on ground-mounts, and can also be used to provide shade by incorporating them into solar pergolas, awnings, carports, animal shelters, or any other structure that may surround your Denver home. Regardless the design, Sopris Solar has installed off-grid solar systems of all sizes and degrees of complexity. When it comes to off-grid power in Denver, we can do it all.
