CHOSE FROM SIX OPTIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL SYSTEMS....

SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE TO SEE OPTIONS AND PRICES THAT SUIT YOUR NEEDS AND BUDGET

OPTION #1..... IS THE STRAIGHT LINE TIE 

PV SYSTEM WITHOUT BATTERIES.  THIS IS THE LEAST EXPENSIVE SYSTEM SIMPLY STATED IT "SPINS YOUR METER BACKWARD" WHEN THE SUN SHINES TO CANCEL OUT THE POWER THAT YOU USE ANYTIME... 24/7.. 365 DAYS. 

     AT THE END OF THE YEAR THE UTILITY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR WHAT YOU USE LESS THE POWER SENT BACK FROM SOLAR GENERATION.  IF IN FACT YOU GENERATE MORE POWER FROM SOLAR DURING THE YEARLY "TRUE UP" YOU WILL RECEIVE A CHECK FROM THE UTILITY.

     THIS INVERTER IS UNIQUE AMONG LINE TIE INVERTERS AS IT HAS AN EMERGENCY POWER OUTAGE PLUG THAT WILL LET YOU TAP INTO A SPECIAL 15 AMP PLUG WHICH WILL BE LIVE DURING TIMES WHEN THE GRID IS DOWN AND THE SUN IS OUT.

OPTION #2 .... REPRESENTS THE MOST POPULAR OPTION BECAUSE IT USES NEW TECHNOLOGY LITHIUM ION BATTERIES AS PROTECTION FROM POWER OUTAGES.

      CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE CAUSE OF WILD FIRES.  PG&E HAS TO SHUT THE POWER OFF WHEN THE THERE IS LOW HUMIDITY AND HIGH WINDS TO PREVENT ITS EQUIPMENT FROM STARTING A WILD FIRE.  THESE EVENTS    TRIGGER A MANDATORY PSPS (PUBLIC SAFETY POWER SHUT-OFF) THEY COULD LAST FOR A MINIMUM OF 48 HOURS TO MUCH LONGER.           THE NUMBER AND DURATION OF THESE EVENTS ARE UNPREDICTABLE GOING FORWARD AND DEPENDING ON YOUR SITUATION COULD VARY FROM INCONVENIENT TO LIFE THREATENING.

     INDEED THE BATTERIES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE AND EACH HOMEOWNER MUST ASSESS THE CONSEQUENCES OF EXTENDED POWER OUTAGES WITH THEIR BUDGET AND WILLINGNESS TO ENDURE HARDSHIPS.

   

OPTION #3 ....SOME PEOPLE AREN'T SURE THEY WANT BATTERIES. RATHER THAN BUY A STRAIGHT LINE TIE SYSTEM THEY WANT TO CONSIDER BATTERIES IN THE FUTURE. 

     WE RECOMMEND PURCHASING THE GENRAC SYSTEM WITHOUT THE BATTERIES.  THIS  OPTION COSTS A BIT MORE THAN THE LINE TIE SYSTEM BUT MAKES THE DECISION TO INCLUDE BATTERIES OR NOT. 

     WE FIND THAT POWER OUTAGE PROTECTION CAN BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE MONETARY SAVINGS FROM SOLAR ONLY. SOME PEOPLE FIGURE THIS OUT AFTER THEY EXPERIENCE MULTIPLE SAFETY POWER SHUT-DOWNS.  

     WE MOSTLY INSTALL FULL BATTERY SYSTEMS BUT ALSO A FAIR NUMBER OF BATTERY READY SYSTEMS. LESS STRAIGHT LINE TIE SYSTEMS AS POWER SHUT DOWNS BECOME MORE FREQUENT.

OPTION #4.... IF YOU PURCHASE OPTION #3 ABOVE  AND YOU DECIDE IT'S TIME FOR BATTERIES YOU WILL PURCHASE THE BATTERY UPGRADE AS SHOWN.

OPTION #5- MANY OF OUR EARLY CUSTOMERS DID NOT HAVE THE OPTION OF OUTAGE PROTECTION WITH LITHIUM ION BATTERIES.        THEY HAVE THE SAME SOLAR PANELS (LESS OPTIMIZERS) SAVING THEM AS MUCH MONEY AS A BATTERY SYSTEM. THEY ALSO HAVE THE POWER PLUG THAT WORKS DURING THE DAY.

     ADDING BATTERY STORAGE REQUIRES A NEW HYBRID INVERTER AND A STRING OF NEW COMPATIBLE LITHIUM ION BATTERIES.

     WE ENCOURAGE INSTALLING THE SOL-ARK UPGRADE TO THEIR EXISTING SOLAR PANELS FOR THE LEAST COSTLY OPTION FOR ADDING BATTERIES TO AN EXISTING LINE TIE SYSTEM

OPTION #6 ....FOR THOSE CUSTOMERS THAT WANT A CHOICE OTHER THAN THE GENERAC PACKAGE WE OFFER OUR ROBUST SOL-ARK INVERTER WITH FORTRESS BATTERIES.

     THIS SYSTEM IS USED FOR OUR OFF GRID MARKET AND IS USED FOR ON GRID APPLICATIONS AS WELL.

     THIS SYSTEM HAS MANY FEATURES THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO THE MORE SOPHISTICATED USER.

     ASK OUR STAFF ABOUT THESE CAPABILITIES.
