When the electricity grid goes down, your solar system must shut down as well. This is to prevent electricity being fed to the grid by the solar system, which may result in shocking workers performing repairs. With the Solar Backup Power adder, solar owners may power up to 1,500 Watts (depending on available sunlight) for electronic devices etc.
The backup power is delivered to a outlet near the inverter or may be delivered to select appliances in the home.
Here we will gather all of the necessary information for an initial solar design.
Did you know: Installations performed by non-licensed roofers void all roof warranties?
Our licensed roofer is a Certainteed factory certified "Select Shingle Master" installer and GAF factory certified "Master Elite" installer.

Did you know: Excellent solar PV system sizing and design improve financial performance and result in best aesthetics?
The design and size of your solar PV system matters to us as much as it matters to you. We spend the time with you to determine your financial goals and to ensure that the aesthetics of your system match your expectations. With proper diligence, it's almost always possible to hide conduits, move roof venting for a rectangular or square solar array design, and maximize the positive visual impact solar PV can have IF it's necessary to be visible at all.
Our customer base consists of customers who recognize value in accessible local business, reliable products, responsive service, and the most qualified installation team available.
Quotes from other companies might have a lower cost, but what corners are being cut?
How much does it cost to fix leaks under a solar system? (Not to mention the headaches.)
How about less than expected electricity production?
Is preserving the aesthetics of your home worth anything to you?
We will help you ask the right questions to make sure you choose the right solar installers for your needs and desires.
Now we will collect your consumption and rate information.
An optimized solar system needs accurate monthly electricity consumption data in order to be modeled. We will collect that data now. If you have your past electric bills, you can find this info there. If you have a dom.com account (or any other electric company), login to your account and navigate to the My Usage section for that info.
Or give them a call and ask them for your 12 month kilowatt hour data and your electric utility rate.
Below is a picture of a sample Dominion Power bill with the monthly and yearly kWh consumption and the electric rate hi-lighted in red:
With a Dominion account, we will be able to determine exactly which hours of the day you consume electricity. This has an impact on the financial modeling.
You will also be able to see how much electricity you are sending to the grid once you make the switch to solar.
Here is a screen capture of solar energy going from a customer's home, back to the grid. The customer is receiving credits from Dominion for generating this power. Dominion is reselling this power to the customer's neighbors.
Please input as many months of kWh data as available. We will use this data to properly model a solar PV system for your home or business.
We now have all of the information we need to generate an initial solar system design.
We will be in touch within 24 hours (or next business day).
