Solar Photovoltaics is finally affordable to the mainstream population. This has resulted in billions of dollars being invested into new facilities, building today’s established standards for solar panels all over the world. Today we provide utility grade panels for home use at competitive prices. Solar Photovoltaics have a 35-40 year design life, 25 year manufacturer performance warranty, are hail resistant and are both U.L. Certified and CE Certified.
The sun does not need to shine every day, we only need a daily average of 5-6 hours of energy collection to occur within 30 days (power company billing cycle). Today’s solar prices, panel efficiency and energy banking (Net Metering / Spinning Meter Backwards), has made this the best renewable energy investment for maximum energy production. Solar power systems can be off-grid with batteries or grid connected with no batteries. When grid connected, the power collected during the day spins your meter backwards and at night the power company provides energy credits.
Interactive systems are solar PV systems that can be used in parallel with the grid and a backup generator system. They are often the least expensive and most common systems in use today.
These systems are designed to feed electricity back to the grid during the day when energy costs are high providing you energy credits and then drawing power off of the grid at night when the energy costs are much lower. This is done by a Net Metering process that keeps track of the energy you produce and the energy you use. Energy storage or a backup generator can be added for emergency back up when the grid is down for an extended time.
These systems are not tied to the grid at all and must be sized to the maximum load your home will use, and may have up to a 3 day reserve built into the battery storage system. These systems can also be integrated with wind, hydro and diesel generating systems. These systems are generally more expensive but they provide the greatest independence of your total electricity needs.
