First Grid Tie Solar Home in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas

First Grid Tie Solar Home in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas

Customer Goal: 

To significantly reduce the expensive electric bills on a compound in the Abacos, Bahamas.

Description:

Electrical utilities can be quite costly, especially in the outer cays of the Bahamian islands. Grid tie-ins utilizing solar can offset the extremely high costs of energy and provide more energy for comforts….like air conditioning! We were able to install panels onto the existing metal roof that will withstand hurricanes, produce enough energy to keep this home comfortable and do so without the high utility bills.

Collectors: Qcell Panels

Inverters: 3 U.S. made SMA inverters

Result

The system is running as anticipated with a significant reduction in utility bills. Meter runs backwards most of the day.
