What's the First thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word "off-grid" and "on-grid" ?
Pardon, What does it mean to be off grid? What is difference between on grid and off grid?
Let me clarify something for you. 👇👇
What is On grid ?
A home that is connected to locally provided power source is considered “On-grid”.
An on-grid can be practical if the following conditions exist:
You live in an area with an average annual wind speed at least 10 mph (4.5m/s). Utility-supplied electricity is expensive in your residential area. The utility’s requirement for connecting your system to its grid are not prohibitively expensive.

An off-grid can be practical if the following conditions exist:
You live in an area with an average annual wind speed at least 9 mph (4m/s).
