Save Money With Solar Energy Systems

From federal and state rebates and incentives to selling excess electricity back to the utility company, solar panel installation can greatly reduce or eliminate traditional electricity bills. Because the sun is a renewable resource, converting its plentiful radiation via photovoltaic (PV) panels into the electricity that powers your home does not have to rely on coal-powered, nuclear, oil-burning, or other, less-clean methods of energy production.

Not relying on utility companies means that your house is not dependent on your city’s electricity grid. Solar gives you a cost-effective and reliable means of electricity production without the high bills.

What Is Solar Energy?

Photovoltaic (PV) systems converts the sun’s energy to electricity to power your home or business or even heat your pool. Because the sun is a renewable resource, you are not dependent on your city’s power grid or raising oil prices. Even on cloudy days, your solar panel system will still work, as the sun’s radiation can penetrate clouds, however few of those there actually are in sunny Southern California.

Solar photovoltaic systems (PV) use the sun to produce electricity, which is an eco-friendly way to power your home. A completed and properly installed system can offer you continued savings throughout the years, with a typical life expectancy of up to 25-30 years. Not only does this quickly pay you back for your investment, but it can act as an excellent selling point should you ever sell your home.

Commercial Installation Of PV Solar Electricity

There are many issues which may present themselves when you depend on your electricity to be generated from natural gas, oil, nuclear, and coal energy. Not only are these sources of electricity inefficient, but they put quite a bit of strain on the electric grid as they have to travel long distances over transmission lines.

Solar electricity is a much more efficient and eco-friendly way to power your home, as it uses a lower amount electricity and reduces strain on the electric grid. You can not only save yourself money on your electricity bills, but you can save the environment. Photovoltaic electricity (PV) is grid-tied solar electricity which allows you to generate your own electricity.

What Are The Benefits Of Orange County Solar Panel Installations?

You’ve probably seen or own a solar powered calculator that don’t have any batteries and only needs enough light to run. That same technology can actually power your home electric and meet all of your energy needs, including heating up your pool and domestic water system.

The Benefits Of Solar Electricity May Include:

  • When the rate of electricity goes up, this does not affect you and your bills.
  • You can enjoy clean, reliable energy for many years to come.
  • You can reduce your need for nuclear, coal, and oil power and offset C02 emissions.

Did you know that the sun can perpetually power your home’s electric energy needs by owning your own solar photovoltaic system?

Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic System

It all starts with the sun.

The sun has enough photons that hit the surface of the Earth to power all the world’s energy needs within just two hours of exposure. The problem is that we have not yet invented a solar system that can completely harness the power of the sun at 100% if its capacity. With the invention and development of the photovoltaic (PV) cell, we are now able to harness a minute portion of what the sun can power and convert it to usable electrical wattage around the home.

The Photovoltaic (PV) Module

The photovoltaic module captures the sunlight’s photon which “excites” the positive and negative silica embedded inside the modules. The positive charge of the n-type silicon and the negative charge of the p-type silicon interacts with each other in the molecular level producing extremely high speed and volatile friction, resulting in DC current. Before this type of current is usable around the house, it has to be converted into AC current by the inverter.

The Inverter

The inverter is an electrical device that converts direct current (DC) produced by the solar photovoltaic modules into alternating current (AC) which is the type of current that powers your home’s electrical appliances and light bulbs. One safety feature of the inverter is that it shuts off all electric production going back to the grid when there is a power outage on a grid-tied system to protect and prevent anyone from an electric shock when working on the power lines.

Electric Meter

During the day when the solar system produces surplus electricity, the inverter pushes electricity produced back into the grid resulting in “net metering.” This is when the electric produced feeds back to the utility company. A desirable buy-back agreement happens when the house’s electric meter turns is in the utility’s favor when grid power is being drawn, and the owner’s favor when the house generation exceeds its needs. At the end of the payment period, when the meter is read, the system owner pays the utility the difference between what was used and what was produced.
