Solar panel and solar photovoltaic options

There are two types of solar energy systems that are most common amongst homeowners in South Carolina. A grid-connected solar PV system connects your home to solar energy while still allowing you to use electricity from your local utilities provider if need be. If you provide more electricity than you use, you'll be eligible for retail credit by feeding this energy back to your utilities provider.

The second type of solar PV system is called a grid-connected critical load battery backup system. A long name for a short concept - this system operates the same way as a typical solar panel setup, except that it's also designed to work in the event of a power outage or failure from your local utilities provider. Basically, this system is a normal energy source and a generator all in one. We install Tesla, Sonnen, and LG solar energy battery backups throughout Bluffton, Myrtle Beach, and surrounding areas.

Choosing a system that's right for you

How can you be sure that renewable energy is the right choice for your home? The answer takes into account a few different factors, and following these steps will provide a simple way to determine if renewable energy is a smart decision:

  1. Ensure energy efficiency first. Long before you consider any kind of solar installation, you'll want to make certain that your home is properly insulated and air-sealed. By reducing home energy consumption, you'll be able to avoid wasting any of the renewable energy you produce. Carolina Energy Conservation can perform a comprehensive home insulation examination to determine your home's energy performance, allowing you to make the necessary upgrades.
  2. Make sure your home is evaluated for a solar system installation. Many homes can easily accept a wood or pellet stove, however, this is not true for a solar PV system. By evaluating your site, Carolina Energy Conservation can determine the best solution for a solar system. As a member of the Dr. Energy Saver network, we have the most up-to-date information concerning state and federal incentives for energy efficiency improvements.
  3. Have Carolina Energy Conservation install your solar system. We can handle the entire installation process, from beginning to end.
