Solar Power Plants

    1. Stand-alone photovoltaic systems are not connected to the electric grid. These may be direct-coupled photovoltaic systems, or may be provided with battery storage to permit operations during night hours, or else they may be supported by a non-grid source of electricity such as generator driven by a prime mover (hybrid power system).

    2. Grid-connected photovoltaic systems are integrated to the electric grid, thereby supplying electricity to the grid.
