How To Go Off The Grid With Solar Panels In San Francisco

If you're looking at living a life that's independent from the electrical grid, you'll want to be set up with different options for electrical power. Many homeowners are switching to solar panels, but it's not as common as it probably should be.

Wouldn't it be nice to be self sufficient energy wise, and be able to earn some extra money at the same time? Wouldn't it be nice to not worry about the family leaving lights on by accident? When you don't have to pay an electricity bill or worry about how much energy you're going to have to pay for, it is reason enough to warrant solar power installation.

Solar power has come a long way in the recent years. Smart home technologies have been added to solar panel systems that can let you manage the generated energy, lighting, irrigation system, climate control system, security system, storm shutter operations, and more. You have access to the smart systems either over the internet, on your smart phone, or via a remote control device. The solar panels themselves have also been improved, offering you more energy per panel.

How Solar Panels Work

Solar panels convert sunlight into clean green DC electricity which is then converted into usable AC electricity for your San Francisco home. An inverter then converts DC electricity into usable AC electricity. Not only can you power everything in your home, you can sell back the energy to the electric company! There's no better way to fund your energy usage while generating your own power for decades to come than by installing solar panels and the electrical systems needed to convert sunlight into free energy. This whole system can be connected to your smart home technologies for seamless integration and remote access if you so desire.

Solar Panels With Standby Generators & Solar Storage

Solar power can completely power your entire home, or just a few things you find necessary. But what happens when your solar panels aren't able to generate enough electricity at times? That's where a standby generator and solar storage batteries come in. With the installation of an automatic backup generator, you can have seamless power at all times. Battery systems help to store the free excess power that the solar panels generated. The most common batteries are the lithium-ion batteries but there are other options.

A San Francisco electrician who offers solar panel installation can help you design the right solar system. When discussing options, keep in mind that solar power can produce extra energy for you to sell back to the utility provider.
