Systems that are connected to the utility grid and use Photovoltaic (PV) energy as a supplemental source of power offer the greatest flexibility. Being connected to the utility allows the consumer to choose how much supplemental power to derive from alternative sources such as PV systems. The supplemental power offsets a portion of the power needed from the utility, resulting in lower electricity bills.
The Mainstream consumer PV market essentially began with off grid residences. As systems have become more affordable, this application has become increasingly common among homeowners who demand value beyond environmental benefits from the systems. PV systems can be sized to power an entire home, but off grid residences often include other sources of energy, such as engine generators or wind turbines, to supplement or back up the PV system.
Large scale PV requires special attention. The reason for this is the amount of power being generated and distributed to loads. While some systems can resemble a residential solar system, other cases demand creativity, building knowledge, electrical code, and safety requirements. We analyze commercial clients on an individual basis to ensure the proper goals will be met.
