Off Grid Solar

Off Grid Estimates


 6840 watts of off-grid power – 24 Solarworld monocrystalline modules 


.First Light Solar specializes in designing and installing off grid  and grid tied with battery back-up systems. We take into account the  intended use of the system, and the amount of batteries and solar panels  you need to run your equipment – well pumps, refridgeration, heating,  lighting and appliances.

Whether you need an off grid system or you are looking for a backup  power source in preparation for grid failures, we have a solution for  you. We can measure or estimate the wattage of the appliances and any  other loads that will be supported by the battery system so that when we  design the system we know that it will provide you with all the power  you need.

Off Grid Design & Installation


  Outback FLEXpower2 off grid system – 2 FLEXmax 80 charge controllers, 2  Midnite Solar combiner boxes and 20kW Cummins-Onan backup generator.  Connected to internet with Outback Power Mate3 system controller and  OpticsRE online monitoring 


The two design parameters we try to work with are your power needs  and your budget. With that in mind, we design the best possible system,  using top quality equipment to provide a rugged, reliable power system.  This can include sealed maintenance free batteries, back-up generators  with auto start and on-line system monitoring in addition to high  quality solar panels with a variety of mounting solutions: top of pole  mounts, roof mounts and ground mounts.

Our mounting systems are engineered to withstand the fiercest wind  and snow loads. All systems we install meet the 2014 National Electrical  Code standards, including the new Rapid Disconnect requirement for  first responder safety.

At First Light Solar, we take pride in our work. Our job doesn’t end  when the system is finally installed, inspected and turned on. We’re  there for you to answer questions, follow up with instructions on system  operation and maintenance, check in with on-line monitoring systems and  troubleshoot and fix problems. All major system components such as  solar panels, inverters and batteries are covered by manufacturer’s  warranties ranging from 5 to 30 years. And First Light Solar gives a 5  year warranty on workmanship and materials (other than factory warranted  parts) on the complete systems we design and install.
