I am not out there to sell you solar and wind products , I',m there to design and engineer the system to accommodate your power requirements for now and future expansion.
I will consult and refer you to a first quality supplier for major components such as solar (photo-voltaic) panels , mounts , charge controllers , inverters , properly sized battery's and for hybrid systems wind turbines and back-up generators . Common AC 120 volt breakers , wire , receptacles and additional components I use for secondary power distribution will be used just as you would for line power from electrical retailers,
My speciality is making all your components communicate and work together and are code correct to the current N.E.C. standards. As a class1 renewable energy installer I will be able to help with federal programs for tax credits on "New" installations .
I am not a miracle worker for the typical DIY ,If you have read a book and think you know it all and want to try this by yourself without electrical construction experience you will be in over your head on the first day . Or buy into these "Build it for Cheap" type sort of scams. I am here to assure you that "THEY DON'T WORK" and its not cheap to build these components and you cannot do it in your own garage. I will argue this point to any and all who disagree , So when I say that its not right I mean It ! To actually put power back into the grid and watch you meter spin "backwards" and still supply power for your electrical needs will cost 60.000 + dollars just for equipment and no labor. These kind of dreams are rarely achieved .
My one and only objective is my customers understanding of what is really involved in owning and maintaining a complete off grid renewable energy system with a 20 year minimum life expectancy. I'm not here to sell power back to the electric company . I'm here to build you a reliable electric system only ! nothing more.
The real key to achieving a reliable energy source is consulting with experienced installers such as myself and others whom have devoted themselves to the industry and a greener America with freedom from the utility company's who dislike the idea we all can conserve and live without them in our pockets .
