Whether you’ve been looking for a way to reduce your environmental impact or you’re trying to slash your utility expenses, you’ve probably considered solar. If you’re curious about installing this renewable energy source at your home, our team at A.M. Shine Electric is here to help.
We have over 12 years of experience in solar energy. In fact, we installed some of the very first solar panels in the San Fernando Valley. Our extensive experience means we can place solar panels on any type of roof. Whether you’re working with composite, tile, Spanish tile, or another material, we’ve got you covered. Flat roof? No problem. Our team has the expertise to get your solar system up and running.
We primarily sell LG and Solaria solar panels because we know these brands deliver high-efficiency, high-quality panels and we want to pass that reliability on to you. We sell them to you, rather than leasing them, too. That way, you can recoup your costs over time, then capitalize on all of the benefits of solar without an ongoing lease cost.
In the sunny San Fernando Valley, these panels capture ample sun energy to supply your home with affordable, reliable, clean power. That means significant savings for you.
Interested in solar? Don’t assume all systems are the same. Our team at A.M. Shine Electric has the expertise to help you maximize the savings from your solar investment. For example, to ensure you get the best energy output from your panels, we fit each panel we install with a microinverter system.
The Benefits of Microinverters
Solar panels convert the sun’s energy into direct current (DC) energy, but you need a way to convert that to alternating current (AC) power to use in your home. Traditionally, solar panels have connected in a series to a string inverter. The problem? Because the panels then work as a series, shade or dirt covering any one panel interrupts the system as a whole. Scratches and leaves get in the way, too.
To save you from significant production loss, we fit each individual panel with a compact microinverter. That means each panel has a way to convert the energy it creates into usable AC power. If any single panel gets shade or gets dirty, all of your other panels continue producing power for your house.
What’s more, these microinverters monitor how much energy each panel produces and how much you’re consuming, helping you optimize your solar setup.
We’ve chosen to use the Enphase IQ™ 7A Microinverter. The most advanced microinverter on the market, this system gives you consistently high production. It’s also flexible. With microinverters in place, you can easily add more panels or a battery backup whenever you want.
Maximizing Your Investment with Battery Backup
We aim to help you make the most of your home’s solar energy creation. That’s why we also offer Enphase’s battery backup storage systems. This way, any time your power goes out, your solar system can kick on to keep your house running. Say goodbye to resetting your clocks or worrying about the food in your fridge. Neighborhood blackouts and brownouts won’t affect you anymore.
With a battery backup system in place, you have a way to use your solar energy whenever you need it most, even when the sun isn’t shining. This helps you keep your more important digital devices — like your morning alarm and your home security system — on the grid at all times.
Please note that using the Enphase brand for the microinverters and the battery backup streamlines the connection between the two systems and provides better overall compatibility. It also puts all of the Enphase products comprising the system on a single warranty.
