Thames Solar Electric specializes in the design and installation of Renewable Energy, Photovoltaic Solar Electric Systems. Battery- Based Solar Systems for Grid-Tied and Off-Grid applications are our specialty. We install Photovoltaic Solar Systems on both residential and commercial buildings.
Renewable Energy Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Systems are a good clean alternative energy source. The sun is reliable, even on cloudy days. Therefore, PV Solar Systems can produce electricity year round. PV Systems fit on roofs, so they blend into neighborhoods, even in covenanted developments. PV Solar Systems can be mounted on different facing roofs, on pole mounts or on ground mounts. Each mounting system is designed for a specific solar need.
Well trained designers and installers of Photovoltaic Solar Electric Systems is a must. Ken Thames has been giving classes since 2005 to make sure that PV Professionals understand this is an electrical system. He designed and taught advanced PV classes for Arapahoe Community College to start their PV Solar Program. Currently he teaches his classes On-Line - a 40 hour PV Solar Advanced Class and a NABCEP Prep Class in conjunction with Heat Spring Learning Institute.
Off-Grid Solar Systems need to be first designed to use electricity efficiently, and then the actual electrical loads of the dwelling are used to size the solar array, not the square footage of the house. Besides domestic dwellings, Off-Grid PV Solar Systems are used in remote areas like the University of Denver Observatory on top of Mount Evans.
