SOLAR POWER IN Syarcuse & CNY
Grid Tied Solar Panels
Syracuse Solar and Wind of Central New York are certified by NABCEP (North American Board Certified Energy Practitioners), and NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Agency). This allows us to deliver our customers the highest quality of solar installation and it allows us to aquire NYSERDA grants for our customers.
Grid tied solar systems do not require batteries. All power generated by your solar panels are net metered. In a net metered solar and wind system all the solar powered energy produced by your solar panels is sent to a device called an inverter. The inverter changes the electricity from direct current to alternating current. All home appliances in the United states run on of alternating current. The inverter then modulates its output to match the frequency to utilities electricity. The inverter then directs the power to your homes load center (breaker box), where it can be distributed to where ever you need it. Any additional solar power above and beyond your demand is sent back through a bi-directional meter. The meter keeps track of power both coming into your home from the utility and how much electricity is being sent back to the grid.
Off Grid Solar Panels
Living off the grid is a romantic idea for many, that is only achieved by a few. Off grid solar systems require a generous amount of planning and design. Creating a solar system with batteries that will produce enough power for your home even in the darkest part of winter is something that we take serious.
Off grid solar systems are not eligible for NYSERDA or New York State Solar tax Credit.
AC Coupled Solar Panels
AC Coupled solar panel systems are a combination of grid tied and off grid solar systems. The base design of the solar system is significantly different from the grid tied solar system in that batteries are incorporated into the system in a manor to power the home when the utility cant supply power. We discuss the difference and explain AC couple systems in a separate section.
The past winter was exceptionally cold and expensive for those living in Central New York. Syracuse residents that heat with natural gas, propane, electricity and heating oil saw a significant increase in your monthly bills. Let us install one of our solar hot air systems and you will start saving thousands in heating cost.
