Grid-Interactive Systems​

 

Grid-interactive PV systems give users more choices and greater flexibility, while increasing the level of reliability in deployments.

 

A Grid-Interactive system can bee seen as a combination of an Off-Grid system (with a battery bank) and a Grid-Tied system (uses the grid as backup and/or sell excess energy into the grid i.e. Nett-Metering).

Thus it is a Commercial Grid-Tied system with a battery bank installed to store some energy for later use or for back-up under grid-failure conditions.

 

The battery bank can typically be smaller than what is required in an off-grid system; sized to drive just the essential load(s) during a power-outage, with the grid as a reliable backup energy source for bad weather days.

 

Grid-Interactive System in Commercial or Industrial Scale installations would be used to power essential or mission-critical loads (e.g. Computer server rooms, fridges, key-equipment) during grid-falures and/or would be used to reduce peak loads (i.e. Peak-Shaving), thereby reducing the KVA Load component of the electricity bill.

 

AM Solar are experienced grid-interactive pv system designers, suppliers and installers.

A Solid Financial Investment..

 

AM Solar are a specialist Commercial Solar PV EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) company.

We focus on Roof-Top PV systems ranging from 10kWp to 999kWp that will either Reverse Council Meters (Nett-Metering) or will supply the buildings electrical load as an optimised "Self-Consumption" supply model. 

Grid-Tied Systems

 

Solar PV (photovoltaic) roof-top, Grid-Tied systems are the most common type of solar PV installation around the world (93% of all PV systems are grid-tied). These systems do not store their energy in battery banks.

 

Electricity produced during the daytime by the sun is either used in the dwelling/building or directed back into the electricity grid, this puts your power usage into credit (i.e. Nett-Zero Energy Building).

 

These Roof-Top systems can either Reverse the utility meter or are designed for close to 100% Self-Consumption usage.

 

Grid-Tied systems effectivley reduce or eliminate the KWh portion of the electricity bill, thereby reducing or eliminating this cost.

 

Typical Day-Time load type buildings (i.e. operate during day-time hours 7am to 6pm) can be reduced to Nett-Zero energy from the grid (eskom) while oher building types may only achive portional savings (10% to 90%), this being known as a Self-Consumption approach

 

The initial cost in Investing in this Technology is typically offset within a few years and the long term savings (30+ years) can be significant, with IRR's 15% to 70%.
