When the power goes out, yours doesn’t have to.


So do Hurricanes. Don’t get left in the dark.

Those of us who know hurricanes dread the inconvenience of losing electricity over extended periods. Florida law prohibits grid-tied solar systems from functioning when the power goes out, rendering even the largest solar systems useless in the absence of batteries and costly equipment. Until off-grid systems become affordable, the most reliable form of energy after a disaster comes from natural gas powered generators. We recommend including a generator in your sustainable home or business project. And just as building performance measures lead to a less costly solar investment, adding a generator to an efficient home costs less.
