Why Solar?


It's Clean

Solar power requires no fossil fuels for energy production, the number one source of greenhouse gas emissions in the US.  

It's Easier Than Ever

New technology is making DIY installs easier than ever. Anyone can install a system with the help of a local electrician. 


It's Worth It

Solar is an investment with a guaranteed return. You will also benefit from generous state and federal tax incentives. 

Grid Tie

Having a grid-tied solar power system means your home’s solar panel system is linked to your local power utility company’s electrical grid. This type of system does not require batteries. 


Hybrid systems generate power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system but use special hybrid inverters and batteries to store energy for later use. 


Off-grid solar is a solar panel system not connected to the power grid at all. They completely rely on electricity powered by the sun and stored in batteries.

We can design systems with any selection of inverters, but we are big fans of the Sol-Ark 8k and 12k inverters. These are the most efficient inverters in every respect. They are easy to install, require little to no additional hardware, and are the most affordable option when compared to equivalent systems.


We offer a variety of battery types and can help you set up the battery bank that’s right for you. If you are having trouble figuring out which option you should go with, give us a call or send us an email and we’d be happy to help you figure it out.

There are many steps that you can take to lower the amount of solar you need. By planning your solar infrastructure, you can increase your efficiency and save thousands of dollars.
