GRID-TIED SYSTEM

  • This is our most cost effective system.

  • Never worry about running out of energy because you still have the power grid energy to use.
  • If you create extra energy then you can sell that energy back to the energy companies.
  • If the grid loses power then you will also be out of power.


OFF THE GRID SYSTEM

  • Solar Energy is stored in batteries for future use.

  • If the power grid loses power then you will keep your lights on.
  • If you create more energy than you use you will lose that energy.
  • You must have a large enough system to supply all of your energy, otherwise your lights will be out.

HYBRID SYSTEM

  • Best of both systems.

  • This system has a battery back-up in case the power grid loses power.
  • Never worry about running out of energy because you still have the power grid energy to use.
  • If you create extra energy then you can sell that energy back to the energy companies.
  • Power is stored in the batteries for future use.
  • This is our most costly system however the most efficient.
