What we offer
Grid-tie solar panel installation
Grid-tie solar panel systems, also known as grid-connected systems, are designed to work in conjunction with the existing electrical grid. These systems can generate electricity from either solar panels or shingles and feed the excess power back into the grid.
Grid-tie systems typically do not include battery storage, as they rely on the grid for power when solar generation is insufficient. In cases when the grid is down, a solar generator is usually more cost-effective than battery backup. Grid-tie is cost-effective and allows for net metering, where homeowners can receive credits for the excess electricity they generate and send back to the power grid.
Energy independence with fall back to the grid when necessary
Off grid solar systems
Off-grid solar panel systems, also called standalone solar systems, are designed to operate independently of the electrical grid. These systems are commonly used in remote areas where grid connection is not available or expensive.
Off-grid solar systems may require battery storage to store excess solar power for use during periods of low or no sunlight. They often include additional components like charge controllers, inverters, and backup generators to ensure a reliable power supply.
Total energy independence with battery backup.
Hybrid solar energy systems
Hybrid solar panel systems combine the features of both grid-tie and off-grid systems. Hybrid solar systems are connected to the grid but also incorporate backup solar generators or battery storage. This allows homeowners to utilize solar energy during peak hours and store excess power for use during non-sunlight hours or during power outages.
Hybrid solar systems offer greater flexibility and independence by providing a backup power source when the grid is down.
Combining ultimate independence and flexibility.
Ground mount solar systems
Ground mount solar systems are versatile and efficient solutions for harnessing solar energy. These systems consist of solar panels installed on the ground rather than on rooftops, allowing for optimal placement and orientation to maximize sunlight exposure. Ground mount solar systems are often preferred in cases where rooftops are unsuitable or insufficient for solar panel installation. With their modular design, these systems can be easily scaled up or down to meet specific energy needs.
One of the major advantages of ground mount solar systems is their flexibility in positioning. Unlike rooftop installations, ground mount systems can be strategically placed to take advantage of the sun’s path throughout the day.
We can capture the power of solar anywhere.

we’ve got the answers
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity using photovoltaic cells. When sunlight hits the cells, it excites electrons, creating a flow of electricity. This direct current (DC) is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter, making it usable for powering homes and businesses.
What are the benefits of solar energy conversion?
Converting to solar energy and installing solar panels offers numerous benefits, including reduced electricity bills, decreased reliance on fossil fuels, lower carbon footprint, increased energy independence, and potential financial incentives or tax credits.
How much does a solar panel installation cost?
What is the payback period for a solar panel system?
The payback period for a solar panel system is typically between 5 to 10 years, depending on factors such as system cost, energy savings, and available incentives or credits.
Can solar panels generate enough electricity to power my entire home?
Yes, solar panels can generate enough electricity to power your entire home, depending on factors like system size, energy consumption, and sunlight availability in your area.
