Off-Grid System

A basic off-grid system is composed of a renewable energy source that generates DC power, a battery bank to store the DC power, and an inverter/changer unit. The inverter is the brains of the operation and seamlessly converts DC power to clean, reliable AC electricity for your daily use. It also keeps the batteries charged.

System Installation

Upon making the decision to switch to solar, reach out to us to discuss your electrical demands and requirements. Based on the phone consultation, we prepare a preliminary estimate and send it to you via mail, email, or fax. After reviewing the estimate, we conduct an on-site solar evaluation to establish distances, location for equipment, and to ensure your location is acceptable. We then revise the preliminary estimate to include labor, wiring, and everything within the project scope for a final estimate. Once you've reviewed the final estimate, place a deposit to secure installation while we order equipment. Upon the arrival of the necessary supplies, we schedule a suitable installation appointment.
