Why Solar is Your Best Option for Sustainability

As climate change makes its way onto headlines of newspapers, points of discussion in political debates and trends on social media platforms, individuals begin to wonder in how their dollar can help. When it comes to making consumer decisions that make significant environmental contribution, solar energy shines brightest. The choice to put solar panels on your roof can not only save thousands on your utility bill every year, but has the potential to save thousands of tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. Commercial solar energy is truly the nexus of environmental and economic sustainability. By investing in solar you enable your home to produce your own electricity while also greening your lifestyle. Investing in solar means directly investing in your ability to save on utility, while also investing in environmental efforts. 

Ally Solar and Electric is proud to be a local, family-owned and operated business that brings the best solar options to its customers. This company expedites the process of acquiring a solar system and makes your contribution to your wallet and to the environment easily accessible. Environmental partnership is in the fabric of our company, we strive to be an ally to the environment by promoting solar energy and demystifying the process of acquiring solar. We equally emphasize a customer’s potential to save money and to be more eco-friendly because we know, understand and want to share the value both of these have.

The World’s First Inverter That Charges an Electric Vehicle

EV CHARGER INVERTER

EV CHARGER INVERTER

We have been installing SolarEdge EV Charging Single Phase Inverter since it came out this year.

We love this EV Charging Inverter as our customers saves thousand of dollars by combining two in one; an inverter and ev charger. It reduces the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV Charger and a PV Inverter. It eliminates the additional wiring, conduit and breaker installation. It also eliminates the additional dedicated circuit breaker which saves space and helps us avoid potential main panel upgrade.

Full Visibility and Control

The SolarEdge EV charging single phase inverter supports full network connectivity and integrates seamlessly with the SolarEdge monitoring platform. Homeowners can track their charging status, control vehicle charging, and set charging schedules. Monitoring features include:

  • Smart-scheduling for use with Time of Use (TOU) rates — charge from the grid during off-peak hours

  • Track solar, EV, and grid consumption for visibility and control of household energy usage

  • Remote operation via mobile app — turn charging on and off

  • View charging duration, charge energy, and percent charge from solar

  • Easy inverter commissioning directly through your smartphone using the SetApp mobile application

Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.

 

Battery Storage a Game Changer in Energy Revolution

Lower costs of solar systems are helping the green energy revolution push forward but it’s the battery storage technology that’s really taking the movement to another level. Utility companies far and wide big and small see the potential of renewable energy suppliers with a quality battery storage system. Energy storage technology is really where a big paradigm shift can occur. Arizona plans to have 450 MW of battery storage available by 2021 and a additional 400 MW by 2025 so they can use stored solar energy for high demand times in the evening. These projects are also allowed to use the 30% federal tax incentive so there’s a high upside.

Renewable energy resources, boosted by robust battery deployments, will most likely become the primary source of generation of electricity in the United States over the next 10 years. Reluctance appears to be giving way as proactive and innovative solutions are brought to the market. More and more utilities are placing solar and storage on their near-term and long-term road maps!
