Customers save in ways you can't imagine! The typical American family spends over $1,335 yearly on electricity alone. When using solar energy you are saving money that equates to thousands in just a few years.
Placement of the solar panels and sunlight radiance is important to be able to get the most of your solar power and meter credits, meter credits are generally how your local Electricity company will convey your solar power into meter credits for your bill.
Still being on grid, our electricity bill does not go away, most of the charges are eliminated except for those days with no sunlight. The remaining electricity you pulled from the grid that wasn’t offset by net metering credits is where you might see small charges for electricity.
The Institute of Energy Research published research showing that the average price of residential electricity in America from 2005 until 2015 actually rose by 34%. Annually, this equates to a rise of 3.4% a year.
Overall failure rates for photovoltaic (PV) solar panels have fallen dramatically when compared to installations prior to 2000, according to the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Installations between 2000 and 2015 exhibited a median failure rate of 5 panels out of 10,000 annually, while for those panels installed between 1980 and 2000 the rate was twice as high. The difference is not explained by a greater deterioration of the pre-2000 installations, because when grouped into systems of similar age, pre-2000 installations exhibited higher percentages of failures.
Well-built PV modules have demonstrated performance for 30 years outdoors, and warranties of 25 or more years are common: Indoor accelerated tests and certifications that quickly give confidence in the warranty are in demand by consumers, investors, and manufacturers.
Solar Energy is a non-polluting source of energy. With Renewable Energy you can be sure to have peace of mind knowing you are doing your part in helping the planet for a greener future. Sustainable energy generates energy that produces no greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and reduces air pollution at the same time. Going Carbon free diversifies our limited options for inexhaustible energy supply. Reducing dependence on imported fuels and fossil fuels and creating economic development and jobs.
We are overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions.
In the U.S., about 29 percent of global warming emissions came from our electricity sector!
Even when including “life cycle” emissions of clean energy, the global warming emissions associated with renewable energy are minimal.
Solar panels increases a home's attractiveness in the market, similar to homes with low property
taxes, homes in school districts and homes with good Home Energy Ratings.
In the state of California, a small 3.1-kilowatt (kW) system can add an average of $18,324 to the value of a medium-sized home.
In addition, it can also help your home sell 20% faster as properties without solar installations. For homeowners who want to reduce exposure, paperwork, and wait times, this can be a huge advantage – especially in today’s housing market.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory offers a useful guide when determining how much your property’s value will go up. According to its research, each additional $1 in energy bill savings adds $20 to your home’s total value.
What is a carbon footprint? Your carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds you emit due to the consumption of fossil fuels by the way we eat, live and make day to day decisions.
Reducing Gas emissions is imminent to our planet. The average American household produces 14,920 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year, assuming an average monthly energy consumption of 957 kilowatt hours.
Every kilowatt installed reduces your home’s carbon footprint by over 3,000 Lbs annually. For the average five-kilowatt residential system, that means a reduction of more than 15,000 Lbs of CO2 every single year! While you won’t realistically be able to eliminate all your home’s greenhouse gas emissions, Solar Energy goes a long way in decreasing household waste.
In San Diego and Los Angeles people are saving an average of $130 a month and $41,400 in profit after the 25 year mark depending upon system size.
Deduct 30 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system on your residential or commercial property from your federal taxes! Theres No Cap on value.
With all the money you save from going green you can take a trip.
