Solar Grids News

In this category, you can find all the news related to utility-interactive PV plants. Solar installations can be classified into three following types: on-grid, off-grid and hybrid systems with battery storage. Grid-feed PV modules generate power during sunny weather and supply it into electric grid, so you can access this backup power when needed.
