Solar Supplies

Comprehensive List HERE

List without Mfg  HERE

Comment: Of these, the leaders in the US include BP, Sharp Solar (nice panels that come in shapes to conform to rooflines), Mitsubishi, Siemens, First Solar, Kyocera, and GE.

Inverters

Learn How It Works HERE

List of Inverter Manufacturers

Comment: The Inverter is the part that converts the DC from your panels to useable AC. Look through the list for Grid Tied inverters. Installers usually suggest a particular preferred brand in their installations.

Installers

List of Installers by Zip Code  HERE

Comment: This website that lists who installed what and where in the SCV. Advanced Solar appears to be one of the more popular choices here.

You can go to the home page and type in other zip codes as well. It isn't perfect (some of their grid tied provider listings are wrong) but it is very helpful.

If you click on the company names it links to a fairly complete list for that installer--prices, location, panels used, and inverters used.

WIND POWER

 

One industry leader: Bergey Windpower

Comment: Though in its infancy for home installation, there are companies developing products for smaller installations. Wind Turbines would be working quite well today!

LANDSCAPING AND PLANTING

 

What is Xeriscape:

The term is the name for an approach to landscaping that involves using drought-resistant or tolerant, generally native, plants in dry areas to reduce the need for watering.
