Grid-tied or off-grid, our certified and experienced installation crew will have you saving money in no time with an emission-free solar electric system for your home or business. Click here for more information.
Power Factor Improvement
Increase your efficiency in electricity usage and save significantly. Just by installing a capacitor to your electrical panel or directly to inductive loads, you may be able to cut your bill by 20% or more depending on your initial power factor. Click here for more information.
Energy Audit/ Financial
Ever wonder how to reduce your electricity usage without cutting into your conveniences? We can show you how to save with little pain and hassle. We can also help you calculate and compare different projects with our sophisticated payback calculator. Click here for more information.
It's a good idea to have a backup power generator or battery system to keep you up and running during outages, whether you are tied to the grid or not. We have years of expertise in generator installations. Click here for more information.
Photovoltaic is the ultimate combination of energy independence and environmental stewardship. Photovoltaic (PV) or solar electricity is a safe, reliable and clean way to produce your own electricity, by means of modules (panels) that soak up the sun’s energy. Natural-E installs grid-tied or off-grid electrical systems for your home, business or municipal power needs. We will design and install your system according to your needs whether you want something small or large - it’s no problem. The nice thing about PV is that it’s modular. So you can start out small and add on at a later time. PV systems are easy to maintain, generate clean energy and last 25 -30 years. We back up our custom installations with a 5 year (parts & labor) warranty as well as a 25 year manufacturer’s warranty on your solar module performance.

Did you know that you are most likely paying 20% more on your electric bill for electricity that you don’t need? The fact is most American homes have a power factor of 0.77, which means 23% of your power is being wasted away by your inductive loads – equipment like air conditioners and refrigerators.
Amazingly, this poor efficiency is so easy to correct with a simple addition to your electrical panel. Our compact and appropriately sized capacitor units will improve your power factor up to 0.97 or 0.98 no matter how poor it was beforehand. So in the case of the average household, you can save up to 20% on your power consumption. We have had cases where electricity usage was improved by 40% - 50%. With our spiking utility prices, this is a great product to have, whether you are installing a PV system or not. In the case of solar electric, you can significantly reduce the size of your planned system by using a capacitor to reduce inductive loss.
Is your electric bill out of control? Let us help you out by systematically accounting for all your electrical loads and figuring out where you can save. Perhaps you could strategically place timers throughout your house to turn off unnecessary items at night, or during the day when you’re not using them. Maybe it’s that ancient freezer in the basement that needs to be replaced by a new energy efficient one. You would be surprised what all this “nickel and diming” will do for your electric bill.
Also, we can help you make the wisest decision on your potential energy improvement projects. By using discounted cash flow analysis to compare competing projects, we can help take the guesswork out and leave you confident you chose the right project. Sometimes it’s much better to spend more money up front than it is to go with the cheapest option.
Have you had it with those annoying power outages? You can be prepared for the next big one by installing a clean burning LPG-powered emergency generator. Alternately, we can create a backup power system by utilizing a series of batteries that offer a silent and fuel-free alternative for your emergency situations. Either way, backup power is becoming more of a necessity especially for business purposes, and Natural-E is there to help with several years of installation experience.
Many are surprised when they learn that simple grid-tied solar systems are rendered useless during a daytime power outage. A safety feature of the inverter shuts down power transfer to your house and the grid to protect utility workers from back-fed solar power entering the utility cables while they work. As a result, even with solar power (unless you have an off-grid system), you are susceptible to power outages even during the sunniest of days. Therefore, if you want power when the grid’s out, you better have a backup system installed.
