Residential solar systems, are called photovoltaic (PV) systems. This illustration shows the power interaction between your solar system & your utility provider. This is the most common choice for people who decide to go solar. Net metering allows you to store unused production from your solar panels on the grid. This is a way to cut back on your carbon footprint and allows you to shrink your utility bill. How would you like your utility provider to send you a check? This option allows you to save a bundle on your electric bill. Please call us to schedule a free consultation.
This image is a description of how an off grid solar system produces energy. Most households use only alternating current (AC). Solar panels produce only DC current. An inverter converts DC current into an AC current. People who choose to get completely away from the utility companies use back up batteries to store the excess energy that is produced. This stored up energy is used to replace your electricity. A stand-alone solar system uses batteries for storage to provide electricity on cloudy days and at night. Only about 80% of the energy that enters a battery can be retrieved. Batteries tend to be messy and they need to be replaced from time to time. If you have a cabin in a remote area, solar power can be a great choice.
