Solar Electric systems use photo voltaic solar cells to convert the sun’s energy into electricity. The system can be directly tied to your electric panel (“grid-tie”), or charge a bank of batteries for “off grid” applications, or be designed as “grid-tie with battery backup”. Solar electric or “photo voltaic (PV) systems” offset your electricity usage, reducing your electric monthly utility bills and the uncertainty of increasing utility costs.

“Net Zero” Residential Solar Electric System

Net Zero is a term used to describe that one has completely offset their energy usage with renewable energy. It can also be applied to carbon standards in which one’s “carbon footprint” or carbon emissions are offset by their renewable and clean energy systems. Net zero is often a desirable goal that can be used as a starting point in the system design to determine the most appropriate system size and type.
