Our In Depth Guide to Off Grid Solar

For over 20 years, Fire Mountain Solar has been helping people go off grid solar at sites where it is impossible or cost prohibitive to bring in utility power.  An off grid solar system can provide the power to run lights, water pumps, computers and more. That means you can enjoy the comfort and security electricity provides, even when you’re far away from the grid.

Living Off the Grid Means You Are Your Own Power Company

When you’re not connected to the grid, you must generate enough electricity to power your home, and you need to store energy in solar batteries for nights and when your solar panels aren’t producing enough power to run your loads. Most off grid solar systems also include a backup generator to supplement the power your solar panels provide during extended periods of inclement weather, and for when you need to use more power than your solar panels can produce.

Already connected to the grid but want battery backup for emergencies while reducing your utility bill?
