Targeted News Service (Patent Abstracts)

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 23 -- United Renewable Energy, Alpharetta, Georgia, has been assigned a patent (No. 10,811,883, initially filed Aug. 9, 2018) developed by William Grant Silva, Alpharetta, Georgia, for an "off-grid electrical power system."

The full-text of the patent can be found at,811,883.PN.&OS=PN/10,811,883&RS=PN/10,811,883

The abstract states: "Various implementations power homes and businesses without needing to connect to electric utility company-provided power, i.e., they can operate off-grid. Generally the systems includes solar panel racks (e.g., photovoltaic cells on sheets stabilized using ballasts, anchors, or mounting) that generate electrical power used to provide power to a building or that is stored on batteries. The system includes the solar panel racks and an enclosure to be installed at the premises and separate from the building. The enclosure includes the batteries and inverters that are electronically connected to the solar panel racks and batteries. The inverters are configured to convert direct current (DC) electricity from the solar power racks and batteries to alternating current (AC) electricity to provide power to the building via wires electrically connecting the inverters to the main panel of the building."
