Great Plains Power specializes in off-grid energy solutions. Our main focus utilizes solar photovoltaic panel arrays as your primary power generating source. We suggest adding wind turbines to supplement your solar PV if location and conditions are suitable. A typical system includes deep cycle batteries to store the power produced, a solar charge controller regulates and intelligently utilizes the PV power, an inverter converts the DC energy into AC electricity to power your home and equipment, and a back-up generator can provide security for those cloudy days.

For those with utility supplied power, adding renewable energy sources can help offset rising prices and provide security if the grid goes down. Current utility rebates and tax incentives make this type of addition quite attractive.
