Lets write about Grid-tied solar panel systems. Solar energy is available all over the world. Not only the countries that are closest to the Equator can put solar energy to use – Germany, for example, has by far the highest capacity of solar power in the world. With the introduction of net metering and feed-in tariff (FIT) schemes, homeowners can now “sell” excess electricity, or receive bill credits, during times when they produce more electricity than what they actually consume.
Energy storage systems such as batteries will help smoothen out demand and load, making solar power more stable, but these technologies are also expensive. Luckily, there’s a good correspondence between our access to solar energy and human energy demand. Our electricity demand peaks in the middle of the day, which also happens to be the same time there’s a lot of sunlight!
With the introduction of net metering and feed-in tariff (FIT) schemes, homeowners can now “sell” excess electricity, or receive bill credits, during times when they produce more electricity than what they actually consume. This means that homeowners can reduce their overall electricity expenses by going solar. Data from Solar-Estimate reveals that adding solar panels to your home can bring in annual savings of well above $1000 per year in many states. In California, residents save on average $28,000 after 20 years! The availability of solar finance options in the form of Solar PPA agreements and various zero down loan facilities has meant solar is now more affordable and more available than ever before.
Solar panels (also known as photovoltaic panels) are installed on your home. The solar panels convert light (photons) into electricity (voltage). Each panel is connected to a microinverter that changes the electric current from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current). Each microinverter operates independently of the others so that if one stops working your system is still generating maximum power. The benefits of switching to solar energy are many. Adding solar panels to your home offers a secure investment as solar energy is not only sustainable but renewable as well. It is performance guaranteed and proven to significantly increase the value of your home while decreasing your energy bills.
The process of installing solar panels on your home and switching to solar electricity starts with a free survey of your home where we also perform an energy review to determine how photo voltaic solar panels can help reduce your energy costs. We create a custom installation plan that’s efficient and effective without compromising the quality of the results. Before we begin, we will walk you through the entire solar installation process down to the smallest detail to ensure you understand what will be done and how you’ll benefit.
At SunKey Energy we stay on top of all of the solar energy rebates and incentives available. When we prepare a price quote for you, we will also advise you of the rebates and incentives to which you are entitled including the 30% Federal Tax Credit and any incentives offered by your local utility company.
