A grid-tied residential solar electric system with no batteries is a simple, low maintenance investment you can make for your home. A system designed and installed by Empowered Energy Systems will allow you to save more money with solar panels through net metering, and lower equipment and installation costs: A grid-connected system allows you to power your home or business with renewable energy when the sun is shining. Any excess electricity you produce is fed back into the grid and your meter will spin backwards! When the sun isn’t shining, electricity from the grid supplies your needs, eliminating the expense of electricity storage devices like batteries. Depending on your electricity usage, you may create an overall credit with the utility company during the summer months and the credit is then used during the winter. Typically, at the end of the year, if your solar system has created more power than the home used that year, the utility company sends you a check for the extra power you put into the grid!
Do you want the assurance of power even when the grid is down? The solution may be a grid-tied battery back-up system, like a simple grid-tied system but with the addition of batteries for storage. With Empowered Energy System’s experience with both grid-tied and off-grid systems, we can design and install a system tailored to your needs.
An off -grid system for the back-county cabin or an off-grid home may be the option you are looking for. Empowered Energy Systems has extensive experience installing, maintaining and repairing off- grid battery based power systems. We can provide a remote power system for almost any situation and we are happy to design a system to fit your needs.
