Is it possible to get all my energy from solar?
Yes, renewable energy remains one of the most economically sustainable source of electricity. Generation of electricity via generating set or grid and its transmission is generally expensive, hence the high cost of electric tariff in countries where power supply is stable, which is why residents in most of these countries are going solar to cut cost.
An average house hold in Nigeria, powered by a small generating set of between 850VA popularly known as (I pass my neighbour) and 3kva, spend between
N250,000 and N350,000 annually to power lights, fans and TV, for about ten hours daily, while those with bigger generators spend between N550,000 and N 3,000,000 annually, without achieving round the clock electricity. Unless you have an inverter system installed, money spent daily on fuel is wasted the moment it runs out.
However, money spent on renewable energy is spread over the life time of use, thereby making it one of the most economically sustainable source of electricity, PV modules (solar panels) which generates free electricity from the sun daily, has a life span of about 25years, and the only maintenance that may be required is to clean the panels or replace batteries when necessary unlike generators, that need daily fuelling and monthly servicing.
You can save 70% to 100% of your current or future electricity bill by going solar
What is the cost of a good solar / inverter backup system?

How long does Inverter batteries last?
This greatly depends on the type, make, quality and usage of batteries, just like any other appliance, batteries have standard deployment parameters, which if not followed will lead to abuse of the batteries, and may eventually lead to failure or early death of the batteries. It is therefore necessary to monitor and ensure good operating conditions. Batteries can last between 4years and 12years depending on the type, make and usage.
How does it work, can I use solar without inverter and batteries?
Solar can be used without battery and inverter, to run DC loads, like in the case of a solar bore hole, but will need batteries to run after the sun is gone, just like what is obtainable in solar street light.
However, to use solar in homes or business premises where alternating current(AC) is needed to power most of appliances; Inverter and batteries are needed for storage and conversion of the direct current (DC) gotten from the sun.
Can I use inverter without solar?
Yes, most households and businesses in Nigeria rely on Inverter backup solution to enjoy stable electricity, the system is designed to bypass and charge batteries from available electricity, and automatically take over in event of power failure, thereby guaranteeing stable power supply.
