This is very much dependant on the location of the village and the proximity of the national power grid.
Solarwise Group has 2 solutions for this:
if the village is in close proximity to the national power grid or there is a requirement for the solar power to be connected to the grid then this is the option as shown in the example below:
If for instance, the location of the village too remote and the expense to be connected to the National power grid would be too high, then an off grid solar solution is required as displayed in the image below:
The main difference here is instead of the surplus power generated by the solar panels being sent to the National power grid in an “off-Grid” solar solution it is being stored a battery bank to be able to use the power when there is no sunlight.
If you notice here there is a backup generator. This is not required if you have sufficient power and you would be able to achieve this by ensuring you generate more power than you consume, by having additional solar panels and batteries to store the power generated.
If for instance there is a cost issue, we could look at a phased approach by adding additional solar panels and batteries in due course however we will need to plan for this by obtaining the higher specification controller and inverter from the start to save purchasing new units and wasting the old ones.
