Renewable Energy Technologies
Solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) system are a reliable and pollution-free way to produce electricity for your home or office – and they’re becoming more affordable all the time! Depending on the size and configuration, the payback period of a residential system can be as little as 8 or 9 years. In addition, you can have a grid-tied solar system installed on you property, which allows you to feed your extra-produced electricity into the grid, and get additional electricity from the grid when your system is not producing enough power.
Is Solar Viable in Washington?

As the map below shows, Germany gets less sun than almost the entire United States, including here in Washington, and it is the world leader is solar PV energy production. A qualified contractor will help you determine the right-sized array to install on your property to maximize your solar production.
