Grid-Tied Solar Systems for Residential & Commercial Properties in Reno

House with installed solar panels under blue sky. If you’re completely dependent on utility-supplied power for your home or business in the Reno, Nevada, area, there’s not much you can do about ever-increasing electric bills other than cut back on usage. That’s not a particularly attractive option for most people, and even for those who make the effort, the savings may be negligible. But there is a way to significantly reduce your reliance on the electric company. Installing a grid-tied solar system can make a huge impact on your monthly bills. And the company to turn to for first-rate products and expert installation services is Aspen Electric. We are trusted solar experts serving Reno, Sparks, and other neighboring communities in northwest Nevada and parts of northern California.

How Grid-Tied Solar Systems Work

Before investing in a grid-tied solar system, it’s important to understand what they can and cannot do. Grid-tied systems are designed to provide supplemental power to your home in addition to the power supplied by a utility. The more power generated by the solar panels, the less power is needed from the electric company. During peak sunlight hours, a grid-tied solar system can supply 100% of your power needs. It may even supply more than enough, in which case the power company will buy back the surplus.

Standard grid-tied solar systems are not designed to provide power in the event of a blackout. That’s not to say they can’t, but to do so they must be fitted with a backup battery system. Luckily, the pros at Aspen Electric can design and install a complete grid-tied solar system that perfectly suits your needs and budget, both with and without backup batteries.

Why Aspen Electric Is the Smart Choice for Your Solar Needs

As a fully certified and licensed solar and electrical contractor, you can rest assured your solar panel installation and integration will go flawlessly and result in years of reliable clean energy.

“We live completely off grid and after 15 years had been having problems with one of our inverters causing us to lose power in half of our house. Aspen Electric put together a package for us with new inverters and batteries. They came out, installed everything and even reconfigured our solar panels all in one day. Our whole power system is now rejuvenated! The whole crew was wonderful! We can’t say enough about Aspen Electric. Contact them if you want someone who truly knows their stuff!”

“I wholeheartedly recommend Shawn. He was a refreshing wind of competence and integrity at the end of a long bad experience with shoddy subcontracted electric work. I hired electricians back in April to install solar panels and batteries in my home. They had to return multiple times to "correct" failed inspections by the city and NVE, leaving circuits unlabeled and switches jammed into the wrong spots. Shawn walked in and within a few seconds told me what it would take to finish, acquired all the parts, and was done right on time the same day. Everything was professionally and precisely done. He's booked out for weeks and I can see why. I will only work with him so long as he's available.”
