8 Kilowatt Grid-Tie Solar System:
TruePower SMA 8Kw: With the rising costs of electricity from most electrical utilities around the country more and more consumers are looking to offset a significant portion of their energy needs. While conserving energy is a viable often practical method there is only a limited amount of conservation that can be made without severely altering your lifestyle or cost of living. The best alternative is a Grid-Tied Solar Energy System which can be sized to provide any percentage of your electric needs saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year on electric costs.
Typically a Grid-Tied Solar System will pay for itself completely in energy cost savings in under 15 years. With today’s Federal and State Incentives and Credits for Solar Energy Systems and net metering laws it is possible that your Grid Tie kit could pay for itself in 5-7 years.
The 8 Kw Grid-Tie Solar Kit from Silicon Solar Inc is a perfect system for those looking to offset a portion of their energy needs and save money every day as they rely less and less on their local utility grid for their electrical needs. The 8 kw includes most major components needed to begin installation immediately including solar panels inverter with built in combiner and AC/DC disconnect optional mounting hardware documentation and installation instructions. We also provide wire with connectors for interconnecting the panels into proper strings and connection to the inverter. All equipment grounding including solar array and AC wiring after the inverter must be provided by the installer.
