Interested in supplementing your home’s energy needs with solar power, but you don’t want to deal with a complicated or expensive installation? DeckPower solar panels are just for you.
DeckPower PV panels, from Rhode Island-based SpinRay Energy, could be a true game changer. The entire DeckPower system consists of a 240-watt monocrystalline photovoltaic panel, and an integrated micro-inverter that changes the panel’s DC power output to AC power. Just plug the cord into a standard AC outlet, and voila – instant grid-tied solar power. Electricity from the solar panel flows into your home’s electrical system, supplementing the power from your utility provider.
Because the AC inverter is seamlessly integrated into the system, and because the included hardware is easy to mount without climbing up on the roof, DeckPower panels could be a practical solution for homeowners and even renters. According to SpinRay, a typical setup takes just 30 minutes.
The complete system is available in both 120V or 240V variations, and up to five panels can be linked together. DeckPower is also the only UL-listed system on the market, and qualifies for a variety of state and federal tax credits as well as local energy incentive programs.
