renewable off-grid energy
The elements of the sun, water & wind want to be in integrated and balanced relationships — so too, the balance of work & play, business & community and friends & clients.
Working and living in various parts of Sonoma County for over a decade has earned expertise of micro-climates, micro-cultures and elements in between.
Photovoltaic grid inter-tie generates clean energy with solar panels, and utilizes the local power grid for storage.
Solar thermal hot water systems use solar collectors to heat water using the sun’s energy.
With a variety of renewable inputs, power can be created, stored and used almost anywhere.
Wind turbines use the unending power of air currents to create electrical energy. Integrated Elements installs and services these mechanical systems.
Utilizing the proper water resource — high head moderate flow — we can design and install small-scale micro hydropower for you.
With more than a decade of hand’s on experience, Integrated Elements offers design and consultation services for many types of sustainable systems including: solar PV, solar heating, micro-hydropower, wind turbine technology, water pumping (submersible pumps, pressure pumps etc.), solar grid-intertie, off grid power systems, battery backup, and others.
This particular wind turbine installation utilizes tilt-down tower technology, which allows a 60-foot tower to be raised and lowered with a winch mechanism. As wind turbines are mechanical generators that require frequent maintenance, this type of tower allows for ground-level servicing.
