A photovoltaic solar power system (or 'PV System') comes ready to install with solar panels as the main component. It also includes all of the Balance Of System (BoS) components you would need to make your own energy. We work with top quality solar panel brands such as Panasonic, Q CELLS, REC Solar, and our own altE solar panels. The majority of solar power systems include an inverter, which takes the direct current (DC) energy produced by the photovoltaic system and converts it to alternating current (AC), so you can run appliances in your home.
Our solar power kits are complete systems, and include the racking, batteries, and any equipment or Balance Of System components needed to generate and store power. Whether a big kit or a small kit, each system is a complete solution for the right situation. Whether you're staying connected to the grid to save money, or living off grid for freedom and independence, we have the solar system kit for you!

Some questions to consider:
The advantages of solar energy in a home solar system include:
An altE solar power system includes the major components needed for a solar PV installation - perfect for Solar DIY'ers. Because each installation is unique, some parts/materials will need to be purchased separately to satisfy the needs of your specific project and local regulations.
Our solar kits harness the power of the sun to make electricity for your home, cabin, or tiny house. These renewable energy systems are available for homes that are connected to the electric grid, off-grid, or in a "hybrid" situation requiring bot grid-tied with battery back-up design aspects. We've pre-designed systems so that you can build your own solar panel kits, reducing the complication of "going solar."
Our do-it-yourself solar power kits provide you with high quality solar panels from top solar panel manufacturers, including components made in the USA. These systems include an inverter to convert the DC power from the solar panels for grid-tie systems or deep cycle batteries to AC power for your appliances for off-grid power or hybrid systems where you want both grid power and backup power.
Systems that include batteries give you the ability to choose the type of battery that is right for your needs and budget. Multiple solar panel racking options are also available to safely install the solar panels, be it on the roof or on a pole. The Balance of System components (i.e. breakers, wiring, etc.) ensure a safe installation at a great price.
