We're One Of The Oldest Most Trusted Companies In The Solar Electric Industry

This website was created by Solar Home, Inc., one of the oldest, most trusted names in the solar industry. Take a look at our history and you'll find that we've been selling top of the line solar products directly to the public far longer than Home Depot, BP Solar, Sunpower and GE Solar. In fact when it comes to experience, we've been in the solar electric business longer than 98% of the solar companies in business today.

Why Do We Post Our System Prices While Our Competitors Simply Refuse To ?

Click here to learn how to avoid the typical tactics that are used by sales people to convince you to buy their overpriced solar systems.

This System Is guaranteed To Meet Or Exceed All Eight Of The Following Criteria.









We encourage you to compare any other dealer's offering to the eight critical criteria that are provide by this system.

Click Here To Learn The Eight Specifications That You Absolutely Must Compare When Shopping For A Solar System.

The Longest Guaranty In The Industry

While some brands only offer a 20 or less warranty. The solar panels that are used in these systems come with a 25 year 80% power production factory guaranty. The inverters come with a 10 year factory warranty.


If You're Not Getting At Least A 90% PTC To STC Ratio Out Of That Other Dealer's Solar Modules And You're Not Getting A Reduced Price, Then You're Probably Short Changing Yourself.

All Of Our Investment Grade Solar Systems Offer A Minimum 90% PTC To STC Ratio For A Higher Per Watt Financial Incentive In Many States And Better Per Watt, Real World PTC Performance.

Click here to learn ten buying tips to use when shopping for a solar system.


Compare other solar panels on the market and you'll find that most solar panels use cells with only 2 bus bars. A small handful use cells with three bus bars.

Through innovative research and development, Mitsubishi Electric has created cells with four bus bars to maximize cell efficiency. By reducing the distance between bus bars, the flow of electricity faces less resistance, increasing power output.



By reducing the area of each cell and connecting them in a parallel formation, the amount of electrical current carried by each busbar is reduced by half. This results in a decrease of electrical resistance within the busbars and an increase in overall efficiency of about 2.5%. By taking advantage of our Sunsational free upgrade to Mitsubishi's new PV-MLU255HC 255 watt solar panels, you'll be increasing your system's solar panel efficiency to an incredible 15.4%.



The protection bar on the back of the modules enhances the structural strength of the module and allows the modules to withstand tough environmental conditions like snow and wind. The protection plate behind the bar allows water to drain behind the bar, and includes cable clips to help make the installation smoother.

Most Solar Panel Manufacturers Offer No Protection Bar At All.

With Our Sunsational Free Upgrade To The New Mitsubishi PV-MLU255HC 255 Watt Solar Panel, You'll Receive A Stronger Module Rated At 5,400 Pascals.


The junction box is one of the most critical parts of a module. Mitsubishi Electric is the first in the industry to use a 4-layer junction box for added protection against water, fire hazards, and other electrical or environmental risks.

Most Solar Panel Manufacturers Only Offer Single Or Double Layer Junction Boxes.


With our free upgrade offer to the new Mitsubishi PV-MLU255HC 255 watt solar panel, you'll receive Mitsubishi's new highly durable black aluminum frame which has been treated with two separate corrosion-resistant coatings for ultimate durability under the harshest conditions.

When It Comes To The Solar Panel's Frame, Most Solar Panel Manufacturer's Frames Offer Nowhere Near This Level Of Protection.


Mitsubishi's state-of-the-art engineering and module production ensures that they have one of the tightest power tolerances in the industry (+/- 3%). Their modules frequently outperform their production estimates due in part to reducing losses from module mismatching. In their factory, modules with matching characteristics are paired together so that the actual power value per pair actually exceeds the nominal output power for each carton.

The Tighter The Tolerance The Better Your Assurance Of Getting The Power You Paid For.

Not Even Sharp Or many of SunPower Solar Panels Up To 235 Watts Offer This Tight Of A Power Tolerance Rating.

Mitsubishi Electric has conducted substantial testing to verify the effects of salt water exposure on their PV modules. they found that their PV modules maintained a sufficient level of insulation from the corrosive effect of salt air and ocean front environment to maintain the power output specifications included in its warranty. Their UJ6 series modules are approved for installations near salt water - a benefit that sets their modules apart from others in the solar industry.

The Entire Line Of SolarEdge 240 Volt Inverters Offer The Highest Available CEC Weighted Efficiency Rating On The Market

And A Higher CEC Weighted Efficiency Not Only Means A Bigger Cash Rebate In Many States But Also A Faster Return On your Solar Investment Because Of Greater Energy Harvest.

SolarEdge Pushes Performance Right To The Edge !

Grid Tie Solar Kits only uses solar panels that have been manufactured with solar cells that have been cut from solid ingots of silicon.

You won't find any low cost, lower efficiency Canadian UMG solar cells in these high performance solar panels.

The silicon that is used to make UMG solar panels come from lower cost blended (upgraded metallurgical grade) silicon, which offers an efficiency rating that's considerably lower than the higher purity silicon that is used in Mitsubishi's higher efficiency polycrystalline cells.

When shopping for solar panels, always insist on solar panels that use solar cells that have been cut from a solid silicon ingot.

Many of the solar panels that are on the market that use solar cells that are not cut from solid silicon ingots may offer lower efficiencies, poorer tolerances or lesser warranties.

Simply Better Components

In an effort to be more competitive, many dealers have resorted to offering thin light duty mounting rails that require many more roof penetrations, solar panels with poorer performance ratings and lesser warranties and or solar panels that utilize UMG solar cells in their design or cells that are not cut from a solid ingot of silicon.
Here at Grid Tie Solar Kits we never skimp on quality. Every system that we sell includes only the very best heavy duty components available on today's market.
And that's not just talk. In a side by side comparison we'll prove why our name brand top of the line equipment outperforms the competition hands down at a price that can't be beat.

Your Solar Investment Is Only As Secure As The Mounting System That You Choose.

That's Why We Chose Orion Mounting Solutions For Our High Performance Solar Systems.

High Strength Mounting Rails

Extruded aluminum rails have a long proven history in the solar industry. Extruded aluminum's efficient load bearing design lends itself perfectly for securing your investment into solar onto your roof's surface.

Orion High Performance Solar Racking

Low Cost, Light Weight C Shaped Rails Without A Factory Warranty Are Not Permitted In Any Of Our Systems.

The C shaped rail that many other dealers offer provides a flimsier design and don't even come with a factory warranty. To prove our point ask your dealer to provide a sample of their U shaped mounting rail. Lay the sample on its side and simply stand on it.

Note what happens to this rail. Next try the same thing with a Haticon higher strength rail and you'll know right away which design offers you more piece of mind.

 Because many C shaped rails use far less aluminum, the result is a flimsier design which will require many more holes drilled into your roof to provide the rigidity that is necessary to support the solar panels. Drilling more holes into your roof can increase labor costs as well as increase the risk of a leak.

Also Haticon's taller rail provides more air flow for increased cooling. Solar electric panels work off of light not heat. Heat is a solar panel's worst enemy, the cooler a solar panels is, the more power it will produce.

Always ask your dealer to show you a sample of the mounting rails the he's going to use on your roof. ******

Important: If you've been provided with a quote with no mention of the brand or model number of the mounting system that your dealer is using, then we can almost guaranty that the dealer is probably trying to sell you one of the many low cost, thin aluminum racks that are available on the market. This is a common practice amongst less reputable  dealers. Always demand to see a full list of material including brands and models and ALWAYS ask for a copy of the mounting system's factory warranty.

California and other states have adopted a much more stringent system to rate real world performance of solar panels. This rating system assigns what is known as a PTC (PVUSA Test Conditions) rating to each solar panel that is approved for use in their rebate programs.

This rating system was developed to test and compare PV systems as part of the PVUSA (Photovoltaics for Utility Scale Applications) project.

The PTC rating, which is lower than the STC (Standard Test Conditions) rating, is generally recognized as a more realistic measure of PV output because the test conditions better reflect "real-world" solar and climatic conditions, compared to the STC rating.

SunPower SPR-225E-Black-D E-18 Module

34 SunPower 225 Watt solar panels equals 7,650 DC rated Watts.


According to the California Energy Commission's website, the SunPower
SPR-225E-Black-D 225 Watt solar panel has a PTC rating of 205 Watts.

34 of these panels equals 7,650 DC Watts or 6,970 PTC rated Watts.

Multiply this PTC rating by SunPower's SPR6000m 6Kw inverter's 95.5% CEC weighted efficiency and the result is 6,656.35 Watts times the current $1.62 rebate offered by LADWP and your cash rebate is:

SunPower Rebate $10,783.29







30 Mitsubishi 255 Watt solar panels equals 7,650 DC rated Watts.


According to the California Energy Commission's website, the Mitsubishi PV-MLU255HC 255 Watt solar panel
has a PTC rating of 231 Watts.

30 of these panels equals 7,650 DC Watts or 6,915.00 PTC rated Watts.

Multiply this PTC rating by Mitsubishi's Extreme Series SolarEdge SE6000 inverter's 97.5% CEC weighted efficiency and the result is 6,742.12 Watts times the current $1.62 rebate offered by LADWP and your cash rebate is:

Mitsubishi Rebate $10,922.23

Not only will you get a larger rebate with our Mitsubishi SolarEdge system, but you'll also get better California Energy Commission weighted performance.

Here's Some Important Facts To Consider That Can Have A Dramatic Effect On Your Return On Investment.

Sales people will all tell you that their products offer the highest performance. So who can you believe ?

FACT: Two of the most important measures of performance are the solar panel's per Watt PTC Rating and Negative Tolerance Rating.

You may be wondering why we don't have Sanyo or Kyocera listed here. The reason is simple. Pretty much every other solar panel on the market today offers a 25 year power production warranty. Sanyo and Kyocera only offer 20 years on most of their panels. A longer warranty not only offers you longer protection, but may also increase the resale value of your system years from now. In light of these benefits, we never have and never will offer any solar panel that only provides a 20 year warranty.

This SolarEdge System Includes A 25 Year Power Optimizer Warranty.


The Longest Power Optimizer Warranty In The Industry !



Only The Finest Available Products

SolarEdge provides groundbreaking distributed DC systems that maximize power generation of residential and large-scale PV sites, for faster return on investment. Module manufacturers, integrators and installers benefit from constraint-free site design, full site space utilization, reduced installation time and maintenance cost, module-level monitoring, improved safety, theft prevention, the highest CEC efficiency rating and more.

When it comes to purchasing a solar system for your home or business it is crucial that you take a very close look at the solar panels that the dealer is offering you. After all, solar panels are the workhorse of any solar system. Far too many consumers simply purchase what ever it is that a dealer happens to have available without even looking at a specification sheet. Performance that is lacking by just a few percentage points or an inferior warranty can make all the difference in the world over the expected life of a solar panel.

With more than ten years of experience operating our own state of the art, in-house solar repair center, we know what technologies perform well in the real world and what technologies do not.

 This is why it is important that you choose a solar panel manufacturer that is well established in the industry and has the financial strength to be there in the event that a warranty claim arises. This is exactly why we chose Mitsubishi Solar for our Extreme series solar systems.

Out of the hundreds of monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels that are listed on the California Energy Commission's website, this new Mitsubishi 218 watt solar panel offers one of the highest PTC to STC ratios.

A higher per watt PTC rating not only means a bigger rebate in many states but also better real world performance.

Anyone can build a solar panel that works here on Earth, now strap that same solar panel to a rocket that subjects it to 8 Gs of bone jarring thrust and then expose it to high energy cosmic rays as well as temperatures that can soar as high as 300oC and now you have engineered a solar panel.

 That's exactly the type of expertise that has been perfected by Mitsubishi Electric engineers that began when they established their space satellite business more than 30 years ago.

Building on that experience and utilizing the latest state of the art patented process for manufacturing multi-crystalline silicon, Mitsubishi Electric has achieved real world efficiencies, tolerance levels and reliability that was once thought to be impossible. And unlike other manufacturers they did it without using toxic lead solder in their panels. Since 1974 Mitsubishi Electric is one of the oldest and most trusted names in the industry.

Because Mitsubishi Electric cares about the environment they use absolutely no toxic lead solder in the manufacture of their solar panels. Instead they use silver electrodes which not only protects our precious environment but also enhances efficiency which is why Mitsubishi solar panels outperforms many of their competitors and gives you a bigger rebate at a better price per watt. A typical conventional 3 kW solar array uses up to  864,000 milligrams of lead. A Mitsubishi 3 kW array uses Zero lead solder.

Thin might be in when it comes to waistlines and the latest HDTV sets but when it comes to securing the bulk of your investment to the roof of your home you want the strongest mounting system made out of the highest quality aircraft grade aluminum that money can buy.

The engineers at Orion understand this premise and we do too so we've added the finest mounting rack systems available today. Orion Solar Mounting Systems are unsurpassed in quality and durability, rated to withstand up to 125 miles per hour wind speeds, Orion Solar Mounting Systems are engineered to last a lifetime.

Finally we top off our systems with the best price that you'll find anywhere. In fact, we're so sure that ours is the best deal available, that we'll beat any nationally advertised price on our same, in stock, top of the line systems or your system is free.

Unlike other dealers that will sell you a barebones system, our premium quality kits include everything you see listed above.

California and other states have adopted a much more stringent system to rate real world performance of solar panels. This rating system assigns what is known as a PTC (PVUSA Test Conditions) rating to each solar panel that is approved for use in their rebate programs.

This rating system was developed to test and compare PV systems as part of the PVUSA (Photovoltaics for Utility Scale Applications) project.

The PTC rating, which is lower than the STC (Standard Test Conditions) rating, is generally recognized as a more realistic measure of PV output because the test conditions better reflect "real-world" solar and climatic conditions, compared to the STC rating.
