No matter the real estate costs, solar energy can reduce your energy bill. You will also be prepared for the energy costs increases that are coming. This is why solar energy is a smart thing to look into. Here are a few simple things you can first consider when beginning to explore the idea of “going solar”.
The amount of energy produced depends on the efficiency of your solar panels as well as the number of solar panels installed. Be sure and crunch the numbers to see how many solar panels you’ll need to install. Progressive Power Solutions of Orem Utah believes it is better to buy the highest performance panels or what they call “investment grade” solar.
Do not think that taking advantage of solar energy requires you to completely tear off the roof. As a starting point, you can replace all exterior sources of illumination with solar powered lamps and light sources. They will charge during the day and provide plenty of light throughout the night.
When thinking about going solar, you can start out small. There are two different ways to accomplish this. You might seek out solar panels that can be mounted on or in a window for recharging portable electronic items. The second is to check out solar-powered camping supplies. Each solar option you choose is one you will not have to pay for on your electric statement.
Unlike just one or two years ago, there are now a number of ways to finance or lease a solar energy system. Just be sure you can transfer the lease should you choose to move out of your home in the future. This is critical, because in the event you decide to move, you do not want to keep paying for solar units that are of little use to you. When you have this option in your contract, you and your prospective buyers can both reap the rewards. Progressive Power will be happy to help you explore different options available here.
Your solar panels should be installed so that they can get the maximum amount of sun through the year. Investing in a sun tracker or an adjustable mount may be something you want to consider, so you can change the angle of your panels throughout the day or change their orientation for each new season. Depending on the layout of your home and the number of panels required this may or may not be needed, but again Progressive Power Solutions knowledgeable team will be able to discuss these options with you during a no obligation home or business evaluation.
Solar power is an amazing thing! It can improve your home, your energy costs, and help the planet!
