Now has never been a
better time to invest in your energy independence and environmental
stewardship. Desert Power Inc. is encouraged to offer a full
range of solar power kits for your home.
or Off-Grid our experts can
help you find the right system for you.
Our systems are designed to eliminate your electric
increase the value of your home, protect you from energy inflation, and
reduce your environmental impact. You can pay the
power company for the next ten years and have not much to show for it,
or you can take control of your future and own your own power today.
Our pre-engineered kits
are designed with top of the line products including Sun-Earth
modules, SMA America and Outback Power Systems inverters, and Unirac
mounts and rails. We have done the work so you can enjoy years of
maintenance free power production and receive the maximum rebate from the
California Solar Initiative. We also carry a full range of Solar
Thermal systems that can provide you with hot water, space heat,
for a limited time we
including a Power Saver 1200
free with the purchase of a solar power package.

If your system
batteries, we recommend Nickel Iron Batteries. Edison cells can last
for 40+ years, are non toxic, produce no corrosive fumes, do not
freeze, can handle heavy use and abuse, can be under-charged
over-charged without loss of capacity, and are much
easier to maintain with gravity fed watering system than vented lead
See how these amazing
environmentally friendly low maintenance long
lasting batteries stack up against Lead Acid.

1. Sinterplate nickel cadmium batteries have a memory effect as well as
some lead acid
batteries, not pocket plate nickel iron.
2. D.O.D. means depth of discharge.
3. Nickel iron batteries produce only hydrogen and oxygen past 80%
state of charge.
Gases still should be vented to meet electrical code.
4. Most inverters on the market are designed for lead acid batteries,
but NiFe battereies can
be used on most inverters today. We recommend Exeltech MSX, OutBack,
Samplex and Xantrex sine wave inverters.
5. Twice a year for alkaline batteries and once a month for lead acid
6. Lead acid batteries internal resistance (IR) increases at a steady
rate while alkaline
batteries IR stabilizes. You should not mix batteries with different
7. NiFe cells are much lighter then lead acid cells and also have less
voltage per cell.
