Can you give me an idea on what types of systems you install?

Here is some overview of the system we are installing:

  1. Grid Tie System – always connected to the grid but when the grid shuts down the system also shuts down, if you intend to save electricity this system might be great for you we can apply for “Net metering” or the process of selling the excess power produced by the panels back to the electric company. The electric company will payback through Kw-hr credit (negative bill) that you can use during night time.
  2. Off Grid System -the off-grid system is a separate power supply but it can only supply selected loads that you want to power. This system is good against power interruption problems batteries are required.
  3. Hybrid System – It is a combination of Grid-Tie and Off-Grid system, this system automatically shifts to the off-grid mode when the grid is down, this can back up selected loads you need to power when the grid is out.
