Switch Electric Home Energy’s highly trained and experienced team can design, install, and maintain all types of solar photovoltaic systems. When we work on an electrical system that will be on your property for 25+ years, our electricians take the utmost care to meet your exact needs.
Solar Panel Installation
There is no “one size fits all” in solar panels. At Switch Electric Home Energy, we work with you every step of the way to ensure your system is designed to fit your unique needs and wants. Our team of experienced electricians will help you design and implement a solar photovoltaic system with the perfect size, positioning, and aesthetic design for your home.
We are experienced in installing solar products from a variety of manufacturers, including:
With every design, we perform a shading analysis with a Solar Pathfinder to predict lifelong production numbers. All solar panels installations come with a production guarantee, 15-year craftsmanship warranty, and roof penetration guarantee.
Off-grid Solar Power Systems
Off-grid living is possible even in the cloudiest parts of Washington State. When you pair a solar and battery system with a generator and update your home to be more energy-efficient where needed, you can capture all the power you need to live a sustainable, non-grid-dependent life.
Off-grid and battery backup systems are especially ideal for sites where grid power is not accessible or predictable. At Switch Electric, we can design and implement the ideal battery-powered systems for emergency power backup or living completely off the grid.
Grid-tied Solar Power Systems
Grid-tied solar systems are an excellent choice for homeowners who have access to the utility grid. The upfront cost is lower, and the grid takes care of energy storage for you without the need for batteries.
In Washington State, you can often sell any excess electricity you generate to your utility company. You can also use net metering to get credit in your utility account when your solar panels produce more than you need, then use that credit to pay your bills during times when your panels produce less. Grid-tied solar panels will pay you back!
Solar power backup batteries ensure you have power even when you don’t have access to a reliable utility grid. Your solar system will harness energy from the sun, then store it in a solar deep cycle battery to use when you need it.
We highly recommend installing a solar battery backup system if you live in an area with an unreliable grid, are susceptible to severe weather conditions, or simply wish to avoid dependence on public utilities.
