In isolated self-consumption facilities there is no connection to the electricity grid, so it is not possible to dump or consume electricity from the general grid. In this type of system, electricity consumption is instantaneous and the surplus is stored in batteries for later use.
This type of facility is very suitable for homes or companies that carry out their activity in rural areas and do not have access to the electricity grid. With these systems, a high coverage of energy demand is achieved that can be complemented with the installation of a generator set. This serves to promptly cover demand in cases of lack of generation for several days.
Isolated photovoltaic installations can be of great use in activities such as farms, irrigation systems, pumping systems, rural hotels and shelters.
