One Of The Oldest Most Trusted Companies In The
Solar Electric Industry
Solarhome.com was founded 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®,
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.
Some Of The Longest Warranties In The Industry
While some brands only offer a 20 or less warranty. The solar panels that are used in these Solar
Home systems come with a 25 year factory warranty. The inverters
come with a 10 year factory warranty, which are among the longest warranties in the industry.
Home only uses solar panels that have been
manufactured with solar cells that have been
cut from solid ingots of silicon.
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.
No thin film, ribbons, bows or strings attached.
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, and solar panels with poorer per Watt PTC ratings
and or solar panels that use cells that are
not cut from a solid ingot of silicon.
Here at Solar Home 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.
Strong I Beam Mounting Rails
have a long proven history in the construction
industry. The I beam's efficient load bearing
design lends itself perfectly
for securing your
investment into solar onto your roof's surface.
Great News !
An Extremely Limited Time We Will
Upgrade The U.S. Made Unirac Clicksys Mount
System In This Kit To The Even Higher Strength U.S. Made, Unirac Standard SolarMount Mounting System At No Additional Cost. Offer Ends Soon.
While Supplies Last
Low Cost C Shaped Rails Without A Factory Warranty Or Even No Mounting Racks At All In Their "Complete Systems" Are
Not Allowed In Any Of Our Systems.
The thinner 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 C 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 SolarMount
beam rail from Unirac 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 Unirac SolarMount'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.

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.
the years, we've seen expensive, name
brand, solar panels fail only after a
few months worth of use. We've even seen
popular U.S. made solar panels fail soon
after the manufacturer closed its doors
leaving its customers with no warranty.
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 if the
need arises. This is exactly why we
chose Mitsubishi Electric for our
series solar systems.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
Next we add one of the finest mounting
systems available today. The UniRac system is unsurpassed in quality
and durability, rated to withstand 120 miles per hour wind speeds, UniRac are engineered to last a lifetime.

A Solar Electric System May Actually Increase Your Home's Value
A study by ICF Consulting which was funded by the Housing and Urban Development Department and the EPA
concluded that energy saving measures such as solar can add $20.00 of home value
for every $1.00 in yearly energy cost savings.
The Sun Starter III Grid Intertie system is perfect for reducing your
monthly electric bill. No batteries are needed
because this system utilizes a grid intertie power conditioning unit. You'll actually become a mini
power company selling power back to your utility
company while the sun is shining. If your power
production exceeds your power consumption, depending
on the type of meter you have you will be able to
