Looks like Tesla has a home energy solution coming out soon. HEsolar has been installing battery integrated solar power systems for years. Elon Musk's new product will likely be a lithium ion battery pack somewhat similar to what powers their vehicles. It will be interesting to see whether they can replace Lead Acid Batteries as the off grid market leader.

The HEsolar and Texas Off Grid project below uses our favorite backup power solution from SMA. The yellow Sunny Island units can utilize third party Battery Management Systems for Lithium ion. That being said, the Tesla backup power system is rumored to be an all in one package right now. Learn more about HEsolar battery pack solutions here, http://www.hesolarllc.com/solar-panel-installation/solar-system-types/backup-power/

Finally some sunny weather in Austin Texas! December and January had lower than usual energy yields due to wet weather. That being said, the sun is back with a vengeance ready to lower our customer's energy bills!

Below you can see the January Monitoring report for a 9kW array in Lakeway Texas. The dips in production represent cloudy weather and storm systems. The high production days will rise significantly in the summer when the sun is at it's peak production.

Released today: UT Energy Poll shows divides on hydraulic fracturing, climate change http://ow.ly/jTZMw

April 1st, City of Austin will begin enforcing the 2014 National Electrical Code. Rapid Shut down requirements for solar panels will be the biggest change. Micro Inverters and DC optimizers are already complaint. Waiting on #SMA  to offer an affordable solution so we can continue to recommend string inverters above all else!

Metal roofs are gaining popularity in the Central Texas area. Metal roofs offer additional benefits for roof mounted solar panels. 1) Solar Panels are expected to last 30+ years so placing them on top of a material that last just as long makes sense. 2) Solar panel mounting hardware can be attached directly to the seam meaning ZERO roof penetrations will be required for adding solar panels!

Metal roofs do cost more than asphalt shingles but if you plan on adding solar, it may be a wise investment!

Solar Carports will protect your vehicle and charge it at the same time! Our solar carport systems tie directly in to homes and businesses, lowering their electric bills. HEsolar Carport systems are made completely out of aluminum with stainless steel fasteners. This insures the structure will last as long as solar panels, which are expected to last 30+ years!

HEsolar's website is more than just a website showing off our services. We have spent a lot of time explaining how solar works, cost expectations for the Austin area, local rebates, project logs and more. However, if you live outside the Austin area we strongly recommend you visit DSIRE USA (link below) where you can find available energy efficiency incentives in your area. This website covers the entire United States!

Tesla's are all the craze for a majority of our solar clients. The only thing cooler than an electric vehicle is one that is fueled with renewable energy!

HEsolar installs 240 volt outlets to speed up EV charge rates. We also install Tesla dual chargers that can achieve up to 58 miles per hour of charge! This is especially impressive when you consider that plugging in to your standard 15 amp wall outlet yields 4 miles per hour of charge :(

Craftsmanship in solar design and installation. Our small company structure allows us to guarantee quality solar power systems. The solar inverters below were installed by owners Eric and Derrick Hoffman. We take pride in our craftsmanship!
