New to Alternative Energy?

To help us help you, we ask all customers to review the following information before calling in with a question. Renewable energy is very site specific and expensive. Let us direct you to a system that fits your needs:


Grid Power is electricity supplied by your local utility through its network of power transmission lines and generation sources including Coal, Nuclear, Hydro, Natural Gas, Diesel. Users are charged for the power they use. When you are on the grid, you have access to unlimited amounts of energy. The more you use, of course, the more you pay.


Off-Grid customers have power requirements in locations far removed from power lines. These locations may be so remote there are simply no power lines anywhere nearby, in which case options are few . Even if power lines are relatively close, the cost to get power into the property can be comparable to that of an alternative energy system. Alternatives can be more compelling.
