Solar is trending up.
Many homeowners are not only seeing the environment benefit from solar, but are also seeing significant increases in home values and overwhelming decreases in energy costs. The time is now. More solar energy systems having been installed in the past 36 months than in the past 60 years combined.
Energy costs are on the rise. They have been for the past 30 years, and there is no sign of that rise slowing down. An Independent Solar energy system takes you from paying the utility company for all your energy to freely harvesting energy from the sun. The sun’s energy and your beautiful, efficient Independent Solar system will drastically reduce the amount of energy you will need to buy from the utility company, and, in many cases, even create a surplus of energy which can then be sold back to the utility company, further reducing your energy costs.
Increase the Value of Your home
Homes with solar energy systems are worth more and spend fewer days on the market. Studies have shown that a solar energy system can increase your home’s value more than $20,000 (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory). And, when it does come time to sell your home, your solar system will help it sell in half the time (US Dept. of Energy).
Help the Environment
Carbon emissions are expected to exceed 35 billion MT by 2020. Solar energy systems do not emit any carbon dioxide. Even the smallest of solar energy systems can reduce your household’s carbon footprint by 150 tons. The effect is also cumulative, because once you get your beautiful Independent Solar energy system your neighbors will want one too.
How Solar Power Works
A photovoltaic (PV) solar system is comprised of solar modules, racks for putting the panels on your roof, electrical wiring, and an inverter. From sunrise to sunset, the solar panels generate electricity (direct current) which is sent to an inverter. The inverter converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC), which is the type of electricity required for household use. The AC power is delivered directly to your home’s main electrical service panel for use by you and your family
