Make Your Home Energy Independent

Off-grid PV solar systems provide a dual purpose. When the utility grid is up and in working order, the system offsets your usage, saving you money and reducing or eliminating your energy bill. When the grid goes down during a storm, North Carolina hurricane, or natural disaster, your system’s battery kicks in to provide reliable power for you and your family.

Imagine complete energy independence for your home!

Sun Dollar Energy has experience installing several different off grid capable products. Check out some of our videos below to see some of these installations in the field.

Generator vs. Solar With Battery Back Up

If you want power when the grid goes down you need either a generator or a solar with battery back up system. Generators are noisy, emit dangerous carbon monoxide, require maintenance and a steady supply of fuel which may be in short supply before and after a major storm hits. A solar with battery back up system will save you money when the grid is up and provide clean and consistent power if the grid goes down. If sized properly a solar with battery back up system can even take your home off the grid completely.

Solar Edge’s New Store Edge Inverter seen below is compatible with the LG Chem lithium ion battery pack. Lithium Ion batteries have a longer life expectancy than traditional Lead acid batteries and can be cycled all the way down to a zero state of charge with out damaging the battery.

We are committed to providing professional, honest, and affordable service on every solar system installation. Covenant Solar Tech was formerly known as Sun Dollar Energy.

Sun Dollar Energy was the most informative and upfront about everything related to the process. Dan quickly responded to any questions I had and was fastidious about installation details ensuring that not only did I have an optimal performing installation but also a visually pleasing installation. What a pleasure it was to work with Dan, who I genuinely felt was as invested in my installation as I was.

Unlike many other service providers I have worked with, Sun Dollar Energy came in on time, on budget and the system has exceeded my high expectations. For anyone else considering working with Sun Dollar Energy, I would give them a whole hearty recommendation. Please feel free to pass this letter on to any prospective customers. Thanks again for your great service!

I recently hired Dan Lezama from Sun Dollar Energy, LLC to install a 3 kW system to power my organic farm in Orange County, NC. I hired Dan because his estimate was lower than his competitors and his presentation was better. The system was installed in a timely manner, on budget, in terms of time and money. I’m very happy with the system, and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a PV solar system! The entire process was very smooth and professional, all the way from start to finish.
