Automated solar power systems switch between on grid and off grid. These are the most important systems to understand and implement in 2019 and beyond.
On-grid solar power systems generate power using a solar power system and are directly connected to the utility power grid. On-grid systems can be installed with or without net metering. These systems do not work during grid power outages.
Off-grid solar power systems work independently of the grid and have batteries which can store the solar power generated by the system.
Automated systems connect to the grid when the grid is up and working.
If the grid goes down a power switch disconnects the load from the grid and uses the energy stored in batteries to power the load.
There is no better solution to the growing demand issue shown by the now famous duck curve. The duck curve proves that the huge fluctuations in power grid demand caused by solar power being available when the sun is up but not when it is down are no sustainable in the future.
