HomeScape for Off-Grid
Solar Power System For Home
Installing off-grid solar panels in your home is a great way to eliminate your dependency on the local DISCOM grid for power supply and save money on energy bills. What makes off-grid solar power systems different from standard systems is that they are truly off the grid.
At HomeScape, we provide bespoke solar solutions tailor-made to suit each home’s unique circumstances and power needs. Whether you aim to become self-sufficient or need electricity in a location where the National Grid can’t reach, let us help you decide if living off the grid is the best solution for you.
Reliability is the key to a smooth off-grid lifestyle, which requires a few more components than an on-grid structure. Also, the cost of off-grid solar systems depends on the type of system needed to fulfil your energy needs. With that said, our experienced installers can assess your site and your power requirements to design the best off-grid solar system for your property.

What Is an Off-Grid Solar Power System?
With a stand-alone off-grid solar panel system, you don’t have to be connected to the grid and can rely on your solar panels alone to produce electricity to power your home. However, you need to add several components to make your off-grid solar system work independently. A battery bank is critical to ensure electricity supply at night and on days when solar production is low. To prevent overcharging and damage to batteries, a solar charge controller is also required.
Other components include an off-grid inverter to convert DC power generated by your solar panels into AC before supplying it into your home. Also, a DC disconnect switch is an important safety component to prevent electrical fires and stop the current flowing between the battery bank and the off-grid inverter during maintenance.
How Home Off-Grid Solar Systems Work?
When designing an off-grid solar power system for your home, much depends on your electricity consumption and daily load needs. A right-fit solar system must be able to generate enough power and have enough battery capacity to keep your home running throughout the year, even in the toughest winter days when there isn’t much sunlight.
The number of batteries needed and the off-grid inverter can raise the overall cost of off-grid solar systems, making them more expensive than on-grid solar systems. Depending on your needs, the solar installer might also suggest having a backup generator for those days of the year when your battery bank might have a really low charge.
Benefits of Off-Grid Solar Panel Systems
Homeowners enjoy absolute independence from the grid.
Cheap and Clean
No tariff fluctuations and no carbon footprint - solar is cheaper and cleaner than conventional power sources.
Off-grid solar panels harness the power of the sun and thus work even in the most isolated areas, the only requirement is availability of ample sunshine.
No Power Cuts
Combined with a battery bank, your off-grid solar system ensures a non-stop power supply to your home i.e. freedom from power outages.

Your Questions About Going Solar Answered
What components are there in an off-grid solar system?
The basic components include solar modules/panels combined with a mounting structure, batteries, a charge controller, an inverter, and some important parts for protection like a DC disconnect switch. Your solar provider might also recommend a monitoring system for proper solar maintenance.
How much does an off-grid solar system cost?
The price of an off-grid solar system depends on a homeowner’s power needs which will affect the size, capacity, and number of components required. 1 KW/kVA system with battery back up starts from Rs 75,000 with a conventional rooftop solar system.
How long does the installation take?
The size of your system determines the exact timespan, which is also mentioned in the quote you receive. A small off-grid solar panel system can take two-three days to deliver the equipment to the location, and the installation can be done in a day or two. It might take longer for larger systems.
Where do you install the off-grid solar panels?
Although most solar modules are mounted on the roof, off-grid installations can be done on the ground if the buyer wishes and have enough land space with shade free sunlight. Ground-mounted structures are generally more flexible in ensuring a sun-facing location/angle and ease of maintenance.
How many solar panels do I need?
Factors like daily electricity consumption, amount of sunshine falling on panels, and battery size determine the number of solar panels required. For example, a house with standard appliances can use up to 15 panels to generate enough power around the year.
Do solar panels generate electricity in winter?
Solar Panels must receive sunshine to generate power. If you keep your panels clean, colder temperatures might increase the voltage as solar panels tend to be more efficient on slightly cold and sunny days. However, sunshine hours are reduced in winter, which causes an overall slight drop in power generation.
What size of solar inverter do I need?
Every watt of power coming into your home will pass through the inverter. Hence, it should be able to support the maximum load. A 3kW inverter should be suitable for a small home. However, if you use more and larger appliances like a pool pump, the installer might suggest a 7kW or higher capacity inverter.
Will I be able to increase my solar system capacity after a few years?
Over time, your power consumption might change, and you’d want to expand your solar capacity. HomeScape solar systems are designed to accommodate such customisations. From adding more batteries or panels to other customisations, our professionals will help you upgrade your system.
Do you provide maintenance after solar installations?
Yes, HomeScape protects its customers against any issues with their solar system by providing periodic maintenance services after the installation as AMC (annual maintenance checkup). Since we also provide solar monitoring system through our customer app, this helps us and our customers keep the solar system’s health in check and address any issues on time.
How long does the HomeScape solar system last?
Solar technology has improved tremendously, with solar panels lasting for over 25 years. HomeScape by Amplus Solar covers its solar modules with a 25-year warranty. Other components like the battery and inverter also come with manufacturer’s warranties, ensuring that your system lasts a lifetime.
