Residential solar electric products.

Most homeowners purchase a solar electric system based on the cost per watt, like they are grocery shopping. The problem is solar PV systems are not groceries. They are more like children and can bleed money from you as they grow older. Fortunately your PV system is not a child and you can choose to pick one that will reward you year after year with few surprises. Here are a few pointers to remember:

Inverters - Residential solar power installations greatly benefit from micro-inverters. With standard single inverter systems if just one PV module (panel) becomes dirty or shaded and reduces it's output by let's say 50%, the entire system output can be reduced by 50% costing you money. With micro-inverter systems just the one panel is effected. If a standard single inverter fails your entire system stops outputting electricity. If a micro-inverter fails only one panel is effected and the remaining panels continue to produce power.

Warranties - Most solar PV modules are warrantied to last 25 years. The panel life pretty much dictates the lifespan of the entire system. Most standard inverters only come with a 10 year warranty so you will need to purchase 2-3 inverters over the life of your system. We recommend micro-inverters that have 25 year warranties to match the module warranties. There is less hassle, more system uptime producing power and no inverter replacement costs. It just makes good old fashion sense.     

Monitoring Systems - If your solar electric power system is not working properly how will you know? You will still get electricity from the grid to power your home. How long will it take for you to realize you are loosing money?  Insure your solar energy investment by monitoring your system. A good system should come with lifetime online monitoring.
