In a rural area without mains power, the only option will be the use of off grid. However in suburbs and city areas, both systems can be used, though generally a grid connected system is used. Other factors include how much power you require, whether you can store the power generated or you’d rather feed it into the mains power and always have power on hand whether or not your system produces enough.
