Solar Energy Solutions
A Customized Energy System focused on your needs
Simply put, solar systems are like any other electrical power generating systems, just the equipment used is different than that used for conventional electromechanical generating systems. However, the principles of operation and interfacing with other electrical systems remain the same, and are guided by a well-established body of electrical codes and standards.
Solar arrays are meant to provide specified amounts of electricity under certain conditions. they work in direct or diffused light and can be designed to meet any electrical requirement, large or how small. A photovoltaic (PV), or solar electric system, is made up of several photovoltaic solar cells. An individual PV cell is usually small, typically producing about 1 or 2 watts of power. To boost the power output of PV cells, they are connected together to form larger units called modules. Modules, in turn, can be connected to form even larger units called arrays, which produce more power, and so on.Although a PV array produces power when exposed to sunlight, a number of other Balance of System (BOS) components are required to properly conduct, control, convert, and distribute the energy produced by the array. Inverters take the direct-current electricity produced by modules and “condition” that energy by converting it to alternate-current electricity. The energy can then be used in your home to offset loads directly. Plus any excess electricity is sent back to the electric utility company for a credit on your bill. System productions may be monitored with digital displays, as well as on the internet.
Reliability of your solar system is important, PV cells are considered “solid-state” devices with no moving parts. Therefore, are highly reliable and long-lived. With 25 year product guarantees, little to no maintenance is required to continue producing enough energy to see your return on investment multiple times over in the life of your system .

Optional Battery Storage
Batteries can store power for use during an emergency. They add substantial cost to your solar system as well as require more space for equipment, but will keep sensitive and critical circuits secure and uninterrupted for long or short term outages.
