Become Energy Independent by Having Solar Panels Installed on Your Metro Kansas City Home
Solar panels free you from the grid and allow you to live a more sustainable, independent life. Smart Home Innovations, a locally owned company serving Metro Kansas City and surrounding communities, is bringing the power of solar to local residents by installing our high-efficiency, monocrystalline photovoltaic (PV) panels. Once your solar panels are installed, you will no longer be solely reliant on the utility companies and their ever-rising rates for power, and you could experience savings of up to 100 percent on your current energy bills.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar electric systems work by collecting light from the sun, called photons. The PV cells inside the solar panels convert the photons into something called direct current electricity. However, residential homes are not wired to utilize this type of electricity. So, the inverters on the back of your panel take the direct current electricity and turn it into alternating current electricity, which is used to power your home. If your panels harness more energy than you use, the excess is sent to the grid. Then, when your solar panel system is not creating electricity (when there is no sunlight) the grid sends electricity back to your home so that you can maintain power. A backup battery power supply can also be used for this purpose.
Custom-Designed Solar Panel Systems for Metro Kansas City Homes
Smart Home Innovations differs from other solar companies in that we install entire solar power systems, rather than just solar panels. Our systems are uniquely designed for the project at hand, meaning your system will be built based on the way you use energy. We are certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) in PV technical sales, meaning we’ve proven that we have the required knowledge in both system analysis and design to deliver optimal solar power solutions. We use a comprehensive team that also includes registered electrical, mechanical, and structural engineers to develop solar panel systems for our customers. We will analyze your home’s structure, your energy usage, and the past 12 months of your electric bills, then identify your energy needs and create a customized system to meet them.
To further optimize your home’s efficiency, we offer an exclusive Smart Home Package, which can be installed alongside your solar panels and system. This package includes LED lightbulbs, attic insulation, and a smart thermostat, all of which will help lower your energy consumption.
Professional Solar Panel Installation
Once your solar system has been designed, a NABCEP-certified, in-house technician will install it. Having a NABCEP-certified installer perform the work ensures the project will be completed in accordance with all national standards and industry best practices and that the system will be set up to deliver optimal results. Following installation, we will continually monitor each individual panel. Should an anomaly ever appear, we will come to your home immediately to fix the problem.
