We Sell Engineered Solar System Components, Engineered DIY Grid-Tie Solar Kits, and Engineered DIY Battery Based Solar Kits. Our Battery based systems provide the homeowner with an ultra reliable, efficient, in house power center. These systems can be fully stand alone (Off Grid) or integrated into any home and supplement the power received from the utility company. Our battery based systems are integrated into homes through the use of a transfer switch which allows up to 12 circuits to run on solar full time. This dramatically reduces power bills and provides security should there be a power outage.
The efficiency of our systems at Appalachian Energy Solutions is of paramount importance. We maintain an efficiency level of over 93% on all power produced. Efficiency is maintained by over sizing all wires and using only the best available Outback Power Product inverters and charge controllers. This ensures the homeowner receives full usage from the power produced by the solar array.
All our Battery Based systems use the best name brand American-made products. Every system comes with Sharp solar modules and Outback Flexpower inverters and charge controllers. All our systems are fully expandable with the addition of solar modules or additional inverters possible. Since our systems are expandable, any further system expansion is easy and hassle free.
All of our systems are eligible for a 35% North Carolina tax credit as well as 30% Federal tax credit. These tax credits allow the homeowner to save up to 65% on the total installed system cost.

Solar energy has become a popular buzzword not only within the "Green Movement" but increasingly in mainstream media. With solar powers popularization, due to increased availability and productivity, it is important to understand its numerous benefits.
An obvious benefit to solar power is that it’s produced by the sun's radiation, an infinite and renewable resource. Unlike fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas) which are finite and increasingly more expensive to extract, solar power will always be readily available. Another advantage of solar power is that it will reduce harmful emission levels in order to meet national/global climate change obligations. Harnessing solar energy does not emit harmful greenhouse gases such as CO2 into the atmosphere which are proven to rapidly increase the rate of global warming.
Solar energy is 100% free aside from the cost of installation and minimal maintenance. Since solar energy does not require any ongoing raw materials such as coal or oil, operational labor is significantly lower.
Solar energy is a viable, decentralized energy source provided the area receives adequate sunlight. Since solar energy is non-reliant upon the grid, energy independence is possible to allow for a self-reliant home. Provided there are enough solar panels and adequate sunlight, a home or business could be entirely powered by solar energy. This is especially useful for people living in isolated locations or people seeking to go off-grid.
While solar energy systems can be decentralized and off-the-grid, the majority of systems are grid tied. This means homes/businesses remain on the electrictrical grid while drawing a portion of their power from the solar energy produced by the panels. These grid-tied systems even have the opportunity to sell power back to the energy company, provided the panels produce an excess of power surplus to the requirements of the home/business.
