About Solar Photovoltaics
When the panels are producing power the energy generated by your solar system will feed back into your home or Charged in batteries to be used at night and when National Grid is off. The appliances that you are using will therefore automatically be fed by this free electricity.
Three types of Solar Photovoltaic systems can be implemented and used in Lebanon: Off-Grid, On-Grid and Grid Interactive
Off-Grid or Stand alone Systems
Able to operate completely independently of all traditional public utility services, and replace the traditional diesel generator.
Off-Grid system parts consist of : PV-panels, Solar charge controller, Batteries, Off-Grid Inverter.
On-Grid Systems ( without Batteries)
Able to operate only when the National Grid (EDL) Électricité Du Liban is ON, if the panels are producing more electricity than you are using, the surplus is simply exported to the National Grid through your normal electricity supply for others to use.
If you need more electricity than the panels are producing, your home will take the extra that it needs from the National Grid as normal. You won’t notice a change in the way that your house is supplied energy. To get the most out of the electricity that your panels produce, it’s best to use appliances like dishwashers and washing machines during the day to take advantage of the free electricity generated.
On-Grid system consist of : PV-panels and On-Grid Inverter.
Is the most developed and the most expensive. Grid Interactive solar system combine Off-Grid and On-Grid systems,backup AC power is made available 24 hours a day in the event of a utility failure and is able to export electricity (sell Back) to the National Grid when you have surplus and the Grid is ON.
Grid-Interactive system consist of : PV-panels, Solar charge controller, Batteries and Grid-Interactive Inverter.
Investing in a solar power system means that you will be producing clean green electricity that can be used in your home. You will also be generating an income from the electricity that you produce and protecting yourself from rising energy costs. To find out more about this you can visit our Feed-in Tariff page.
