Residential Solar Electric (PV)

Residential Solar Electric Systems are more affordable, efficient and popular than ever. With increased efficiencies, lower prices per watt and a severe need for homeowners to cut overhead and operating costs, PV systems offer the perfect blend of affordability, performance and return on investment that homeowners need to remain operational and profitable today.

There are two key types of Residential Solar Electric Systems; off-grid solar electric systems and grid-tie solar electric systems.

An off-grid solar electric system is just what it sounds like, it is not connected to the electric grid, providing a stand-alone power generation system that uses a battery bank for energy use when the solar panels are not operational.

A grid-tie solar electric system, conversely, is a residential solar electric system that is connected to the electric grid through a two-way street. This allows electricity to be brought in from the grid for use when the system is not meeting 100% of the energy demand, and for excess energy to be sent to the electric grid when available. Sending excess electricity to the grid is called net-metering, and the utility company will pay you for the excess energy you generate and share with the rest of the grid.

There are several key advantages to both types of systems. However, a grid-tied solar electric system is often the more economical choice. A grid-tied system generally has a lower initial cost (no added cost for a large, expensive battery backup system) and many of the state solar energy incentives require that the solar electric system be grid-connected in order to qualify for funding.
