One Of The Oldest Most Trusted Companies In The
Solar Electric Industry
SolarAC.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.

The Longest Warranty In The Industry
The solar panels that are used in these Solar AC systems come with a 25 year factory
warranty. The power conversion units
come with a 10 year factory warranty. The longest warranties

Before You Buy !
to learn ten buying tips to use when shopping for a solar system.
Solar AC 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, lower cost, lightweight power conversion units with high frequency transformers instead of a heavy duty 60 Hertz output transformer, solar panels with poorer per Watt PTC ratings and lesser warranties and or solar panels that use cells that are not cut from a solid ingot of silicon.
Here at Solar AC 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.

No Toxic Lead Or Cadmium Over The Roof Of

disturbing trend where existing manufacturers
are continuing to use toxic lead and several new
manufacturers are introducing the known
carcinogen Cadmium in their solar panel

We pay more for the higher strength, U.S. made Unirac mounting rails that are used in our
systems, but if you compare Unirac to the other dealers are offering you, you'll find that Unirac uses much
Because the U shaped rail
uses 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

The Brand New Solar Power Tax Credit Is Here !
If you've been
considering solar for your home or business,
it's now time to celebrate ! After nearly a
year of debates and nine previous attempts, On
Friday October 3rd 2008 Congress
finally approved a bill that not only
extends the Federal 30% tax credit for solar
but also removes the $2,000.00 cap that
existed on the previous residential tax
credit. That's an
incredible 30% with no cap for residential
and commercial installations !
If you haven't
already purchased a solar system and applied
for your rebate approval then you're probably
faced with a dilemma. If you wait till next
year so that you can take advantage of the
higher tax credit, then you run a big risk
that the current higher rebate amounts that
are offered by your state will have expired.
On the other hand if you install your system
this year, you'll qualify for the higher cash
rebate amounts but you'll then qualify for the
smaller Federal tax credit that is currently
As of 10/03/08 California's CSI program
reports that there is only approximately ten
megawatts worth of rebate funds left for SCE
and approximately Eight megawatts worth of
rebate funds left for PG&E at the current
higher rebate amounts. Once these remaining
megawatts have been reserved, the rebates
will drop to only $1,900.00 per AC kilowatt. hours for
Southern California Edison and only

For Example the State of California is currently offering a cash rebate of up to $1,900.00 per AC kilowatt. And the Federal Government is offering a 30% tax credit
($2,000.00 maximum for residential and no cap for commercial.) And unlike like the old solar energy systems of yesteryear that only produced hot water, these new systems actually produce electricity ! Clean reliable electricity to run lights,
TVs, pumps, refrigerators, computers and many other appliances, all with free energy from the Sun.
The staff here at Solar AC are experts in the design and implementation of systems that qualify for
many State rebate programs. We offer free assistance in the design of your system and can even assist you with the submission of your application to your State.

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 rack
systems available today. The UniRac SolarMount system is unsurpassed in quality
and durability, rated to withstand 120 miles per hour wind speeds, UniRac
SolarMounts are engineered to last a lifetime.
