An Off-Grid Power System is a small to medium capacity electrical system including solar panels, a battery bank for energy storage, an inverter, and usually a generator. It’s designed to support a building or possibly two, providing complete energy independence from the utility grid.

A MicroGrid is a large or extra-large capacity electrical system that incorporates all elements of an Off-Grid power system in innovative ways. It can support multiple buildings up to entire small communities, offering a versatile and scalable solution for larger off-grid energy needs.

It’s advisable to obtain a quote for grid connection from your power company, then compare the cost and timeline against anticipated electric bills and the investment in an Off-Grid system.

  • Bringing in the grid costs less than $25k: Grid connection is recommended as it’s likely more cost-effective than transitioning to Off-Grid.

  • Grid connection costs between $25k and $50k: You’re in a gray area where Off-Grid solutions might offer long-term savings and energy independence.

  • Grid connection costs between $50k and $75k: An Off-Grid solution is likely more beneficial for long-term cost savings.

  • Grid connection costs over $75k: Off-Grid power systems are generally the best option in these scenarios for cost efficiency and reliability.

Yes, transitioning to Off-Grid is possible but requires significant investment. Sharing your last year’s power bills with us can help provide a more accurate quote for the transition.

While NewGrid primarily offers turnkey electrical construction services, we can provide specific components like refurbished inverters for customers needing replacements for discontinued models.

No, NewGrid specializes exclusively in Off-Grid

We typically can power your property in less than 60 days from the initial contact, sometimes even quicker, depending on the specifics of your project.

NewGrid’s expertise is in custom designing, engineering, and installing complete Off-Grid systems. We’re not suited for DIYers looking for pre-engineered packages for self-installation.
