Semi-off grid in Aalst
Project requirements and solution:
We installed a semi-off grid system in Aalst. The principle is simple: the sun directly provides energy to the devices. Any excess is stored in the battery for later use. This is a semi-off grid system because the connection to the public power grid is not disconnected. It is activated in peak moments, whenever it’s needed.
A huge advantage is that we provided 20 kW of solar panels without this being notified to the Flemish electricity and natural gas provider Fluvius. The solar panel energy is only used in the house. Solar energy is still the cheapest energy source, so YouPower doesn’t like to restrict its use. Add a decent battery to the solar panels and you’re off!
