A2Z Energy solar electric systems are designed to provide an efficient and convenient source of environmentally safe “Green” power for home or office. The systems are designed as strictly a supplemental power source which produces electricity – matched to local utility power in voltage, frequency, and phase.
A2Z Energy systems will reduce your usage of utility power by producing its own power to support electrical requirements for any electrical appliance. An example of this would be: solar electric systems will run PG&E meter backwards as they feed extra electricity back to PG&E. At night or on cloudy days you can use the extra power that you have credited with PG&E (this is known as net metering). Net metering allows you the maximum benefit of your solar electric system by letting you use the power 24 hours a day. A2Z can design a system for your budget.
