Can i start an off-grid solar project without batteries and add them later?
I am making some researches on the Magnum Energy MS-PAE Inverter as starting point. But I am not limited to this particular inverter brand.
I live in the USA and I have solar experiences. I am planning to help my brother in the Niger Republic West Africa, to build a solid solar project
Niger electricity grid (50Hz/220V) is relatively reliable (compare to some others African countries), but very expensive. But mainly Niger is one of the sunniest places on earth with irradiation always between 5.1 kWh/m2 and 6.3 kWh/m2 day during the year.
Two reasons that motivating to move progressively to full solar.
I am planning to start small and grow because of the initial budget limitation and the build and learn the process.
The initial and the main objective is to cut down the electricity bill (no resell to the grid) AND I would like to start without batteries.
My question is: Can I build my project starting with one Magnum Energy MS-PAE without batteries and taking the advantage of long Niamey sunny days to shave the energy bill AND later on add batteries?
I mean is it possible to run an off-grid inverter in order to saves on home electricity without batteries and adds them later to build the backup power?
