Grid Tied Amish Solar Installer in Millersville PA
Easily the most popular type of solar system Belmont Solar installs, grid-tied solar systems are a common design and installation project in the Millersville area. Grid-tied solar systems are solar panel installations that get connected to the home and to the power grid.
There are no solar battery backup systems integrated with a purely grid-tied solar system. Grid-tied solar is all about having the power grid energy available when the solar system is not able to produce enough solar energy to meet the power needs of the home. This is usually the case overnight or in the winter months when solar energy production is limited by the length of sunlight hours in Pennsylvania.
Off-Grid Amish Solar Installer In Millersville PA
Does Belmont Solar install off-grid solar systems in Millersville and the rest of PA and MD? Absolutely! Off-grid solar installations are a less common request from our customers but we certainly do off-grid installations.
Designing off-grid systems is actually one of the parts of the job that owner and founder Ben Zook enjoys the most. Over the years Belmont Solar has installed plenty of off-grid solar systems and even supplies appliances that are compatible with off-grid solar power.
Solar With Battery Backup In Millersville PA
Belmont Solar does install solar systems with battery backup or battery backup capabilities. Battery backup solar systems are great in that they can provide confidence in the face of uncertain times.
You can know that you will always have a reserve of power should an emergency or unforeseen situation come up. The drawback to battery backup is that most people do not realize that it is only designed and capable of operating critical loads. If you want to know more about critical loads check out our solar battery backup page.
The cost of solar batteries is the other shocker to many people. You may assume that solar batteries are much like car batteries and may only cost $100-$500 (or somewhere in that range) when in fact each solar battery often costs upwards of $1,000 and often much more. This means that adding battery backup to a grid-tied solar design often doubles the cost of the solar system. Solar battery backup is a serious investment and one that should not be made lightly.
