Equipment for Oakland Solar

Our San Jose home solar team prepared the following quick primer on exciting new solar equipment technology.

Oakland solarThe key components of our photovoltaic systems include: Enphase microinverters and Sharp Solar and Canadian Solar 240 to 260 watt panels. We’ve found that this combination of technology creates optimal performance and leads to great system longevity. We deeply believe in these products and solar system structure — in their safety, quality, reliability, and stability — and we warranty all equipment for 25 years.

Here’s a rundown on key solar panel specs:

  • Our standard modules include both polycrystalline and monocrystalline high efficiency solar cells (5 inch and 6 inches available).
  • Our Livermore solar installation team uses micro inverters, rather than central or string inverters. Why? Because micro inverters lead to better efficiency and precision. Thus, you can harvest more energy, more reliably, and get better feedback. If one inverter – or even an entire panel – fails, the performance of the rest of the system remains unaffected.
  • Our Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) feature lets you output more power.
  • The A/C wiring scheme is simple, safe and flexible. It allows us to set up, install and troubleshoot systems easily, and it includes a cool web interface that lets you see the system generate electricity and watch it pump away at maximum efficiency. (The internet display also can indicate if/when things go wrong and why.)

Even with great technology available, is Bay Area solar power for the home right for you?

A meticulous, reliable solar system can:

  • Help you generate power (and get off the grid);
  • Increase the value of your home;
  • Conserve emissions;
  • Collect special “solar consumer” rebates from the federal and California state governments.

But different consumers have different needs. A new home solar system may not be right for you:

  • For instance, maybe you’re looking to make incremental improvements to a home that you’re trying to sell. You could just try to conserve energy by cleaning out your HVAC system or by monitoring your usage better.
  • Or maybe you can repair and/or amend your current solar system, instead of replacing it entirely with a new solution.
