Do Nextek Microgrid systems qualify for rebates or credits?
Yes. There are many forms of tax credits, rebates, and other financial incentives in the marketplace to support the purchase and implementation of DC Microgrid systems and components. Each system will qualify for a unique array of local and Federal financial incentives based on configuration and location. Specific incentives are constantly changing.
Do I get leed credit for implementing a Nextek power distribution system?
Possibly! You can apply for a LEED innovation credit for using Emerge Alliance registered products in an overall reduced energy use solution. Using Emerge Alliance registered products can help lower your energy usage, which may also help you achieve the criteria for other LEED credits.
When implementing renewables (solar power), is the Nextek microgrid system more efficient than using an inverter based traditional system?
Yes, very much so. By eliminating an inverter-based system, direct use of DC power can produce an increase in overall system efficiency of up to 40%. Many factors of an overall system design will ultimately define the specific efficiency gain when compared to a traditional inverter system.
