Direct PV is simply a solar panel connected to a DC device. Think a solar-powered attic fan that is not connected to your building wiring or the utility grid. The fan operates only when the sun shines.
Off-grid PV with batteries is used to power millions of homes and electrical devices around the world that do not have utility power. The batteries, designed to be charged and discharged for many years, store energy to provide autonomous power at night and on cloudy days.
On-grid PV with batteries operates similar to off-grid with batteries except the battery-stored energy provides emergency power during grid power outages.
On-grid PV system without batteries is the most popular (and practical) urban and suburban solar solution because of its lower initial cost and trouble-free operation. It also offsets costly and polluting grid energy.
