Off-Grid Solar Market Trends




  • The lowering cost of solar PV and batteries boost the market growth




The fundamental driver of the off-grid solar business is the decreasing cost of solar PV and batteries. In 2020, the price of a solar PV module will have dropped by almost 70% compared to 2010. This will almost likely benefit the off-grid solar energy business as it grows. However, the rise of the solar photovoltaic sector is hampered by high installation prices and substandard maintenance processes. Furthermore, it is expected that the increasing usage of alternative renewable energy sources will hamper the development of the industry under consideration.


Off-grid solar PV panels are rapidly being implemented over the projected period as a result of the increased usage of clean energy sources for the generation of industrial and commercial electricity. These panels are ideal for areas with plentiful sunshine as well as areas prone to grid failures, which result in power outages. The fundamental driver of the off-grid solar business is the decreasing cost of solar PV and batteries. The residential category is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the projected period due to an increase in construction activities in the residential sector.


The market for off-grid solar PV panels is expected to increase until 2030 as a result of major suppliers and vendors luring owners with long-term contracts that include routine maintenance and repair of the panels. Thus, driving the off-grid solar market revenue.


For instance, Schneider Electric is always developing cutting-edge technology to support the market expansion of the solar power sector. The lighting Kenya program aided the development of an off-grid market in the nation. characterized by a variety of business models and companies.


Their installation price and area requirement are two important factors that pose difficulties for the anticipated growth. It is an expensive system compared to on-gird solar systems that directly connects to the utility power grid to produce electricity utilizing solar power. Compared to off-grid solar systems, these systems are best suited when there is a significant demand for electricity or when a desire to lower electricity costs. Businesses usually rely on on-grid solar systems to meet their daily needs because one day of strong sunshine is sufficient to run all of their equipment, including lights, appliances, water heating systems, and other necessities. The market CAGR is being constrained by several issues.

  • January 2024- A supplier of both off-grid portable batteries and home energy storage intended to be paired with solar, Bluetti, has disclosed that it will enter the rooftop residential solar market in Texas. The company revealed Bluetti Solar +, a solar and battery home power solution aimed at Texas homeowners. With a bunch of energy equipment choices, especially with battery energy storage suppliers, home solar shoppers are usually daunted from stirring by the complexity of the decisions at hand, said Bluetti. The organization revealed that by offering an integrated solar and storage solution and a individual project manager in one place, these complexities are simplified. The vice president of business development at Bluetti, Francisco Wang, said that boarding on the solar journey promises to experience financial and environmental benefits.

  • On the other hand, the sophisticated processes involving paperwork, research, and coordination among multiple parties can be daunting. With system proposal software, the organization offers customers a view of their post-installation residence, anticipated financial returns, and backup period of their solar battery system. Once the user authorizes the proposal, a dedicated BLUETTI Solar + project manager oversees the design, troubleshooting, buildout, paperwork completion, permitting process, and inspector quality assurance. The brand's home energy provider comes with solar panels, Bluetti energy storage with incorporated inverters, and a custom production monitoring system. The panels come with a 25-year producer's warranty, and the batteries are covered for ten years. In November 2023, Bluetti launched a new modular residential battery system. The latest EP760 battery system enables up to four lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries of 4.96 kWh to be stacked, offering up to 19.8 kWh energy storage capacity.
