  • Using Residential Solar Energy For Your Home Is A Wise Investment

    On average, utility rates have increased 4% per year. In some areas, energy rates have as much a doubled over the last six to ten years. And we can expect energy costs will continue to rise. Solar Energy aims to eliminate the top tier charges in residential solar installations, or even zero out your electricity bills altogether.

    Solar energy is environmentally responsible. During a period of 25 years, a residential system will prevent on average 150 tons of greenhouse gases from being released into the atmosphere. Not only is it the right thing to do, it also makes financial sense.

    We strive to ensure our clients see an 8% or more return on their investment per year. That means it pays for itself within seven to nine, depending on the complexity of the project and your utility company. As a homeowner with a solar energy system, you automatically qualify to receive a 30% federal tax credit. In addition, your utility company may also offer an additional rebate.

  • Commercial solar energy systems vary much more in size and scope than their residential counterparts. Most commercial solar arrays are much larger, and they aren’t always confined to roofs. Some organizations opt for solar carports, while others install ground-mounted solar panels.

    Larger commercial operations may even feature a “power tower,” an array of mirrors that focus the sun’s rays onto the photovoltaic panels below them.  Commercial systems are usually installed on a flat surface and must be built on racks tilted toward the sun at the best angle for the solar panels to capture the most energy during the day.

    Some systems even include features that synchronize the panels’ angles with the changing height of the sun. Keeping the cost per panel as low as possible is key to securing the quickest return on investment for larger commercial installations.
