Solar installation is one of the most sustainable long-term investments you’ll ever make for your home. Not only can you potentially reduce your energy and gas costs, you can completely zero out their respective bills or even have your utility company pay you instead.
There are two ways you can take advantage of solar installation though, and it’s important to learn what benefits you get from each. Our team from Green Air discusses more.
Off-Grid Solar Installation
This is perhaps the most common form your solar panels will take and, as its name suggests, allows you to be independent from your local electrical grid. The benefits of going off-grid are plenty. On top of becoming energy-independent, you also reduce your home’s carbon footprint by using a more sustainable form of energy.
Off-grid installation is also quite flexible as it can be installed practically anywhere. The only “rule” when it comes to installation is that your space needs to have ample access to sunlight. Good places to install your off-grid rig are on your roof and in your backyard.
Your solar installation can also take the form of a solar battery. This allows you to switch between relying on your electrical grid to solar power when you need it. It also serves as a backup for when you have power interruption in your area. With a flick of a switch, you’ll still get electricity even as the rest of the neighborhood stays in the dark.
Solar batteries are especially useful during summer months when your electrical expenses will skyrocket. Your solar battery essentially acts as some much-needed support to your existing system when energy consumption is at its highest.
As your local solar panel company, Green Air offers both these solar installation methods. If you’re looking to become more independent from your electric grid, or just want to add a safety measure for those expensive months, then our off-grid and solar battery options are great investments for your home.
