Grid-Tie Solar Power Systems

Grid-Tie Solar Power Systems

Looking to reduce your reliance on traditional utilities and switch to renewable energy? Our solar power grid-tied system kits include just about everything you need to install a grid-tied solar system at home or business, from solar panels to grid-tie inverters. Generate your own solar energy, reduce your carbon footprint, and enjoy significant savings on your utility bills with our efficient and reliable solar power system kits.

Grid-tied solar systems are a solar system for home electricity designed for those who already have electric utility service, but wish to significantly reduce their electric bill. With grid-tie solar system for home electricity, you generate electricity when the sun is shining, and sell any excess back to the electric company, where applicable. When the sun isn't shining, you just buy power from the grid, same as everyone else.

At altE, we offer affordable, custom-designed grid-tie solar power systems. Give us a call or send a request for a custom system. For those that are looking for a simple, pre-designed solar electric system, we have a number of kits to choose from.

Have questions? Give us a call at 877-878-4060 and our trained solar professionals will work with you to design your own home solar system for FREE!

Solar Power Systems for your home 

Looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to harness renewable energy and reduce your reliance on traditional utility companies? Look no further than our solar power system kits.

Our solar power system kits include nearly everything you need to install a grid-tied solar system at your home or business. The heart of the system is the solar array, which consists of high-quality solar panels that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.

Our kits also include grid-tie inverters, which connects your solar panels to your electrical grid and allows you to sell excess electricity back to your utility company. To convert the DC power generated by your solar array into usable alternating current (AC) power, our kits also include a solar inverter. We offer both string inverters (also called central inverters) and micro-inverters, depending on the size and needs of your system.

By generating your own solar energy and selling excess power back to the utility grid, you can reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources and enjoy significant savings on your utility bills. Plus, you'll be doing your part to help save the planet by reducing your carbon footprint.

So why wait? Invest in renewable energy and take control of your power needs with our reliable and efficient solar power system kits.

How many solar panels do I need?

The number of solar panels needed for a home depends on various factors such as the size of the home, energy consumption, location, weather conditions, and the efficiency of the solar panels. The altE Grid Tied Solar System Sizing Calculator can help you determine the size system you need. Also, you can look at your utility bill and find out how many kilowatt-hours (kWh) you use. Next, measure the size of your roof to determine the amount of space you have. Finally look over your budget to see how much you can spend on a solar investment. 

 

Do I need batteries for my solar power system?

No, in fact most solar electric systems today don't have batteries. A system without batteries is less expensive, so the return on investment is quicker and the up front cost is lower. 

However if the grid goes down, these grid tie kits won't supply any power. If you want to be able to have power when the grid goes down you'll need a system with batteries. Check out our Battery Backup Solar Power Systems to see some of the options for solar systems with batteries. 

 

Can I install a grid tie solar system myself?

Many people have the skills to install a grid tie solar electric system themselves, while others look to have a profession solar installer do the work. Either way, in most cases an electrician will be needed to ensure the project is wired safely and correctly.  

 

Should I go with a string inverter or a micro-inverter?

Micro-inverter systems are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. Micro-inverter systems, like the Enphase kits offered at altE, are easy to install and have excellent monitoring options. String inverter systems, like the Goodwe kits we offer, are less expensive and lower cost, but take a bit more work to ensure they are wired properly. You can't go wrong either way, so long as you have a professionally designed kit from altE.  

 

What is needed for a solar power system?

 There are a few main parts of a solar power system. First is the solar panels. Second is the mounting system that attaches the solar panels to the roof. Third is the rapid shutdown system, so that the solar modules will disconnect from each other in the event of an emergency. Next up is the inverter which transfers the power to your home. Finally we have the other parts, like wire, fuses and disconnects. 

 

With altE grid tie kits, we do the hard work for you when it comes to designing a system.
