Off Grid Solar Systems
At Belmont Solar, we specialize in installing off-grid solar systems. Relying on powerful photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, a bank of batteries, and special appliances, you can enjoy power without the power company or the noise and mess of a diesel generator.
With an off grid installation, you can now pursue your passion and vision of an off grid lifestyle. In addition, you can also power places that can’t be reached by the utility company, including:
- Hunting cabins
- Pump houses or out buildings that are inaccessible to electric lines
- Outdoor signage
- Plain communities
How Does an Off Grid Solar Energy System Work?
With an off-grid solar panel system from Belmont, you don’t need to connect to the power company to use electric. Instead, solar panels mounted on your roof or in a field generate electricity during the day. The off-grid solar power system uses this electric to charge a battery bank and to run your appliances. When the sun sets or stormy weather hits, the system switches to running off the batteries, giving you the security you need in your off grid lifestyle.
Off-grid solar systems are flexible and are custom-designed to meet your needs. These systems are designed with enough generating power to run:
- Washing machine
- Other small appliances
- Chargers for battery tools and phones
- Water pumps
- Electric heating systems

What to Expect With Off Grid Solar Systems
Unlike grid-connected solar systems that can use regular appliances bought at appliance stores, off-grid solar systems require special appliances that can connect to the system and battery bank. At Belmont Solar, we sell and install appliances that run on the DC power an off-grid system produces. These appliances are also energy-efficient, meaning they take less energy to operate than others.
