Taking your home off-grid and ensuring your own energy independence is an enticing option that many homeowners would love to be able to implement. If you live in a remote location where reliable electricity access is hard to come by, want to cut down on your energy bill or simply care about utilizing sustainable energy options, off-grid solar is a compelling solution.

Our off-grid systems store energy from the sun, allowing you the convenience of sustainable solar energy rain or shine. Our expert team makes installation and maintenance a breeze and works to make sure your system stays in perfect condition. Off-grid solar systems are a great option for many homeowners, and we want to make the transition and installation of solar systems as hassle-free and convenient for you as possible.
What Are Your Needs?
Off-grid solar power systems have a lot of advantages, and depending on the needs of the homeowner, can be a great option to explore. A good first step is evaluating your energy needs and electricity situation. A common use for off-grid solar power systems is for homes that are in areas that do not receive reliable access to the electric grid. Off-grid systems can help power places like campsites, cabins or even homes in areas that are more secluded but still require sufficient electricity.
For homeowners in these types of situations, off-grid energy is not only a good option but can be a necessity. Even in areas like Arizona that receive a lot of sun year-round, you do not want to get caught without electricity from grid or solar panel issues, which is why generating and storing the energy your home receives from the sun is such a great option.
Utilizing off-grid solar systems is also a great option for homeowners interested in sustainability and untethering themselves from the utility company. Self-sufficient solar power means you no longer have to worry about rising energy costs or be subject to blackouts or other power outages. No more worrying about appliances like freezers and fridges thawing because of issues on the grid!
It is important for homeowners to be aware of their energy needs and weigh the pros and cons of switching to off-grid solar energy. While it’s refreshing to be able to be energy independent and live more sustainably, off-grid systems often come with a higher initial investment and often require more maintenance than other energy options. Not being tied to the grid is a compelling and often times necessary investment for homeowners, and with the help of a professional team makes going green a lot easier.
Why Should You Use Off-Grid Solar?
While off-grid solar systems tend to be expensive, the customizability and potential long-term savings can be well worth it. Not only does off-grid solar allow homeowners to achieve energy independence and live a more sustainable lifestyle, but it also allows you to save money on utility bills and take advantage of federal tax credits. Solar power is supported by a federal solar tax credit, which is a great way to reduce the amount you pay in income tax. This 26% tax credit can shave thousands off your tax burden each year, and as there is no ceiling to the amount that can be claimed, can help to alleviate the increased cost of more robust setups. While the upfront cost may be steep, sustainable energy choices can pay off in the long run.
Whether your solar system runs AC or DC power, or you need hybrid or micro-grid systems, our technicians make installation and maintenance easy. Whatever your budget or energy demands, our team wants to make sure our off-grid solar systems are available to any homeowner who would benefit from it.
