POWER GRIDS ARE NOT RELIABLE
Energy is available from many sources. Most of the world depends on power companies. The power companies use many methods to generate power and then they send that power to us over power lines held up by poles. This is called the “power grid” and, as you know, the grid is vulnerable to failure from many outside influences. Lightning, wind, poles being broken, vandalixm and terrorism are just some.
SOLAR POWER IS RELIABLE BUT INTERMITTENT
Our goal here is to show you how to eliminate the unavoidable power outages by installing your own power source – solar power. The challenge is to eliminate the intermittent issue. That turns out to be very easy
BATTERIES MAKE SOLAR POWER AVAILABLE ALL THE TIME
The addition of batteries gives you an uninterruptible source of power that is independent of all outside forces. Batteries add some cost but the cost is well worth it.
USE THE GRID WHEN IT IS UP AND GET PAID FOR YOUR EXCESS POWER
As of now, April 2019, almost all power companies pay for power sent back to them.
ADD A WHOLE HOUSE FAN TO SLASH THE COST OF SOLAR
It is proven by solar professionals that when a whole house fan is available to reduce the time that air conditioning is needed the number of solar panels is cut back significantly.
