The Benefits of Going Solar
Every homeowner has his or her own reasons for electing to go solar. These are among the most reported reasons for choosing to install solar power systems in the home:
• Rising energy prices
• Volatile fossil fuel costs
• Multiple government incentives for all types of renewable energy
• New financing methods for residential solar installations
• Growing awareness of the environmental impact of nonrenewable energy
• Dropping costs of installation and reduced pricing for solar panels
• New financing options including Power Purchase Agreements with local utilities and Solar Lease opportunities
• Manufacturer rebates
• The perception of the increasing value of solar power over time
• Net Energy Metering (NEM) programs that allow solar powered homes to bill energy surplus back to the grid
*There are federal, state, and even local government tax incentive programs that you can take advantage of to lower the cost of installing solar panels in your home.
While these solar panel incentive programs do vary, there is some incentive available in nearly every part of the USA. We can help you identify which programs may apply to home solar panel installation in your area. Additionally, we can also help you identify what incentives may benefit your business, should you choose to install solar energy for commercial purposes.

Finding the Right Solar Panel System for Your Home
There are a wide variety of available solar power systems, as well as customizations that can be individualized depending on the needs of your home. Solar panel systems can vary widely in terms of general design, applicability, and size.
The two primary things that you should consider when selecting a solar power system are the size of the system, and the type of solar cells that the system will employ. Choosing the right size solar system for your needs will go a long way toward determining its eventual efficacy and the appropriate level of power generation. Selecting too small a system will short change you in terms of your power needs, while purchasing as much capacity as will fit on your roof is often a waste of money in terms of both installation costs and over-production of power.
The other primary consideration that solar power system purchasers need to evaluate is what type of photovoltaic cell makes the most sense for their needs. Different types of cell modules generate varying degrees of power per square foot covered, such as:
Monocrystalline Silicon Cells:
Generate the most electricity relative to their size.
Are typically the most expensive.
Polycrystalline Silicone Cells:
Less efficient than Monocrystalline Systems.
Less expensive than Monocrystalline Systems.
Thin Film Technologies:
As efficient as Polycrystalline Systems.
Less expensive than Polycrystalline Systems.
No matter what type of solar power system you choose to install, we can help you find the system that is right for you.
Solar panels are a relatively inexpensive way to make a difference in the health of the environment and reducing our impact on our climate & environment.
