WHY CHOOSE SOLAR?

There are a handful of major decision that every homeowner faces, often these decisions come down to determining if the benefit outweighs the cost.  Choosing to have a solar power system is one of those choices that should be considered. Most people don't realize that there are different types of solar panel systems that can be custom fit to your home. You don't need to be living in a remote area for solar panels to make since.  In-fact some of the most beneficial systems that we have installed are for customers that simply want to curb the rising cost of electricity. We have an awesome team to help support you in deciding if solar is the right option for you. We believe that in the future solar will be the primary source of electricity generation for homeowners.

 

The maps included in this section show Direct Normal Irradiance which is a measure of direct sun light. As you can clearly see, Arizona is one of the best states in the United States for solar power systems. Based on where you want us to install your new system we can optimize the irradiance of your system to be even better than the Direct Normal Irradiance.

 

A new solar power system can be installed on the ground, a roof, or we can even build a custom carport to house the system. This flexibility makes every home or property suitable for solar.

 

Below are some different types of systems to consider when trying to weigh the benefits of having a new solar panel system installed. These different types include grid tied solar panel systems, grid tied solar panel systems with battery back up, and an off grid solar panel system.

Types of Solar Panel Systems

Grid Inter-Tied Residential Solar Power Systems

A Grid Inter-Tied Residential Solar Power System or Grid Tied System for short offers flexibility and convenience at an affordable cost. A Grid Tied Solar Power System allows for the use of both solar power and the home's electric system tied to the electrical grid, seamlessly switching between the two.  The advantage to using this type of system comes by balancing energy produced vs consumed. You still have the freedom to use as much as you want however the system is designed to cover you monthly needs. In addition to covering those monthly needs, we can also design them to cover some of the wants as well, in order to more quickly repay the cost of the system. If set up correctly your bill from your utilities will be significantly reduced.  The whole idea behind a Grid Inter-Tied Solar Power System is to go Net-Zero. Net-Zero is being able to produce enough electricity to, first cover your immediate needs, then sell enough back to the utility to offset the cost of electricity you consume from the grid. This type of system has very low annual maintenance. Another way of looking at it is that you are using the electrical power grid as your battery and can use it on demand.

How it  works

1. The sun creates photons and sends them out as light.

 

2. Solar Panels capture the energy of the sun and convert it to electricity.

 

3. An inverter converts the electricity to be used in your home.

 

4. Any excess electricity not used by the home is then sold to the utility company and credited for your later use.

Grid Inter-Tied Residential Solar Power System with Battery

A Grid Inter-Tied Residential Solar Power System with Battery Backup or On/Off Grid System for short, is the best of both worlds. It offers ultimate flexibility and convenience for those looking for the convenience of being on the grid but the sustainability of being off grid. An On/Off Grid Solar Power System allows for the use of both solar power and the home's electric system tied to the electrical grid, seamlessly switching between the two. The solar electricity generated, first charges batteries, then is converted to use in the home, with any excess power generated being sold back to the utility company. The cost of this type of system increases with the addition of batteries and has more maintenance. The advantage to this type of system is that you would be prepared if anything happened to the power grid.

Off Grid Solar Power System

You are probably more familiar with an Off Grid Solar Power System. This type of system is different then the Grid Tied Solar Power systems in that it is the primary mode of electrical generation for the home. This uses solar panels to generate electricity. That electricity is then stored in batteries so it can be used on demand. This type of system is perfect for anyone that is not living near public utilities or wants to be completely independent of them. The cost of this type of system is typically more than a grid tied system because it needs more capacity to generate and store then a grid tie.

Current Customer Systems

Are you curious to see actual benefits of some of our customers systems? Use the buttons below to look at how these different systems are producing. You will be amazed at how the systems work and how easy it is to track the solar production.

Positive Solar LLC began in 2010 when third generation electrician Kyson Burden and his wife Kodi saw a vision of the future of power in solar systems. Going green and saving money in the process has been the motive of the business since day one.

 

Now seven years in, Positive Solar has  helped hundreds of individuals and families install solar on their homes through rebates and government offers while still maintaining the original vision of an energy efficient and money saving power alternative.

 

Our home base is located in the growing town of Snowflake Arizona. We primarily service eastern Arizona which includes the White Mountain and the Gila Valley, however we support customers all over Arizona and had installed solar power systems in various states across the United States.
