Solar Panel Redding
What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
Installing a solar energy system will reduce your electricity bills and provide a buffer for the rising energy costs. You can always save and even make money in some cases if you get a solar energy system.
What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?
Solar power offers a clean energy upgrade because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants, ultimately making the environment healthier for everyone.
How do solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work?
Solar panels store solar energy from the sun when it comes up. The system converts the stored solar energy into electrical power(Direct Current).
The thing is, since your home runs on Alternating Current(AC), an inverter further converts the DC into AC which you can use at home or send to the electric grid.
Do my solar panels produce power when the sun isn’t shining?
Not really. Solar panels store energy from sunlight. So it will be difficult for the solar panels to generate power when the sun isn’t shining.
Can I go off-grid with solar panels?
Yes, you can, but it won’t be a cheap option. You can stay off the grid when you install a solar energy system. However, you’d need battery storage to do that, and it doesn’t come cheap.
Most folks opt to stay connected to the grid even after installing a solar energy system. This way, you can still get energy from the grid whenever your solar system does not produce enough power.
Do solar panels work in a blackout?
No, they don’t. Solar panels that are connected to the grid shut down during the blackouts. The rationale behind this is to ensure that people affecting electricity utility repairs do not get electrocuted by solar panels sending power to the grid.
How much will solar panel maintenance cost?
It depends on the type of solar panel systems you installed. Those made of durable tempered glass can stay up to 35 years with little or no maintenance. If a maintenance issue arises, you should be covered by the warranty terms. Just ensure that you are dealing with one of the best solar companies around.
What solar energy rebates and incentives are available?
These depend on your location. Although you can access the Investment Tax Credit(ITC)that the federal government provides, states and local governments also offer tax credits and cash rebates.
What are my solar financing options?
Cash, Solar loans or a Solar lease/power purchase agreement (PPA).
