Residential Solar Power
Featured Residential Solar Power Project
A residential solar electricity generating system from NW Wind & Solar provides you with your own supplemental electrical power source to work in concert with power from your electric utility provider. Power is produced when there is sufficient sunlight falling onto your solar panel cells which is then converted to alternating current (AC) and routed throughout your home. Because NW Wind & Solar installations are connected to the existing electricity grid, power is always available.
Solar power systems are installed with both a production meter, which monitors the total amount of electricity produced by your solar array, and a net meter, which both enables you to seamlessly reduce your demand from the electric utility and sell excess supply back when your system generates more than you are using.

The inverter is typically located as close as practical to the modules. In a residential application, the inverter is often mounted to the exterior sidewall of the home near electrical main or sub panels. NW Wind & Solar will ensure your solar installation meets legal requirements and building code regulations and that it is correctly designed to maximize production for your site and conditions.
Is a solar electric power system right for you?
Trust an energy architect. The best way to tell is through a free, no obligation preliminary site evaluation and proposal. A NW Wind & Solar expert will come to your home, survey the site, answer your questions, and prepare a proposal for the installation of a solar power system. Then the choice is up to you.
There has never been a better time to go solar.
Commercial Solar Power
Commercial Solar Power Project
A NW Wind & Solar commercial solar electric power generating system provides you with your own supplemental electrical power. NW Wind & Solar’s systems work in concert with power from your electrical utility. Solar power is produced when there is sufficient sunlight falling onto your solar panel array. Electricity is converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) by an inverter, and the resulting flow is routed to your electric service through a special circuit allowing immediate use.
Because our installations are connected to the power grid, electricity is always available, no matter what. However, when your production exceeds your demand, power is automatically “sold back” to the utility. Commercial solar power systems are installed with both a production meter, which monitors the amount of electricity produced from your solar array, and a net meter, which enables the energy sales to go both ways.
