Are you interested in solar electricity? chances are you are not the only one thinking on going solar nowadays. The demand for solar has been increasing by 30% in the U.S in the last few years and it is expected to rise even more as utility rates keep rising and we switch gears towards a clean energy economy.

Why do we want to generate power from the sun?

* Clean power means no-emissions
* Lower your electricity bill
* Take advantage of federal and state incentives
* Increase the value of your property
* Protect against electric rate hikes

There are 2 main types of Solar systems:

1. Grid-tie
2. Stand alone or Off-Grid

Off-grid systems are best suited for areas where electrical lines are not accesible for example, a remot cabin in the wilderness. Even tought off-grid could be implemented into a residential home, the average price of the system can be as much as twice the price of the grid-tie

How does Grid-tie work?

* You remain connected to the electrical utility lines at all times
* Easier installation and less componentes needed for the system
* More affordable than off-grid, dont need a battery bank for storage
* Very little maintenance is needed
* Never be without power
* Offset need for costly high peak demand electricity from the utility (summer)


Most common applications for solar power:

Residential grid-tie.- Remain connected to the power lines and sell your homegrown energy back to the utility.

Residential power back-up.- Dont waste all your food in your fridge when power lines go down; instead, install a super efficient fridge or freezer that run solely on solar power. Other applications are lighting, computers, etc.

Water pumping.- Remote location? no problem. Solar pumps can lift up to 200 feet and move up to 50 gallons per minute.

Solar lighting.- Need to light a dark space? Power anything from a small 5 watt bulb up to a street light.
