Grid Independence with Battery Storage
More than ever, our customers are incorporating battery storage with their solar systems.
During the day, solar electricity will help power your home and charge your batteries. At sundown, your battteries will discharge to help meet your home’s nightly electricity needs. A solar + storage system significantly reduces your reliance on the grid and lowers your monthly electric bills.
During grid outages, your solar and storage system will provide backup power. Depending on your home’s existing electrical configuration, and the number of batteries you choose, you can have whole home backup, partial home backup or a critical loads backup. We will help you understand your home’s backup capabilities.
Lithium-ion batteries are sleek, have 10-year warranties, and require virtually no maintenance. Popular lithium-ion batteries include LG Chem and Tesla Powerwall. We’re certified to install both brands as well as others.
Monitor your system’s performance & control your energy use online. Check out your system anytime, anywhere with online monitoring. For example, the Tesla app shows your home’s energy use, solar generation, battery status, backup history and grid consumption.
Types of Solar Installations
We will evaluate the suitability of your roof based on this criteria:
- Faces south, east and/or west
- Has minimal shade from nearby trees
- Has minimal obstructions like chimneys,dormers,etc.
- Is in good condition (typically, under 10 years old)
- Is asphalt shingle, metal, standing seam, or another material suitable for solar panels
Examples of our roof-mounted projects
10kW solar system on an asphalt shingle roof in Brentwood, TN
10kW solar system on standing seam metal roof in Clarksville, TN
15kW solar system on standing seam metal roof in Memphis, TN
Other mounting options
A ground-mounted system costs more than a roof-mounted system, but provides higher production. Here’s why: We can install the panels so they are orientated due south, receiving the most sunlight. Also, ground-mounted solar panels receive more air flow, enhancing performance.
Examples of our ground-mounted projects
10kW system in Kingston Springs, TN
20kW system in Clarksville, TN
10kW system in Hendersonville, TN
Canopy or awning
Get the perks of a ground-mounted system, plus shade for your parking area, patio, or porch. A solar parking canopy pairs nicely with an electric vehicle (EV) charger. Cool factor: Translucent solar panels can be used!
Examples of our solar canopy and awning projects
5kW solar canopy in Brentwood, TN
5kW solar canopy in Nashville, TN
5kW solar awning in Nashville, TN
