Solar Power utilizes the power of the sun to produce electricity to provide your home with a cost effective, yet environmentally safe and friendly system to work in conjunction with your existing electrical utility provider. Once added into your existing electrical wiring, the electricity produced is exactly the same as that coming from your power company for running appliances, powering lights, operating computers and any home entertainment products such as televisions and stereos.
By adding a solar electric system, you will reduce the usage of electric power from your utility company, resulting in savings on your monthly bill. Depending on the rate structure of your utility company, and size of the system, this reduction could vary from 10% to 90% or more, while making an important contribution to our environment.
Every Solar Electric System Consists of Five Major Parts:
First, an appointment will be arranged by one of our Pre-Site Technicians who will visit your home to take readings of your solar exposure. These readings will determine the best location for your solar panel placement and the number of panels which will be required. Once that determination has been made, your solar electric system will be installed by our qualified electrical technicians who will be responsible for all permits, engineering specifications, and providing documentation to process your rebates. For your added peace of mind, each installation is thoroughly checked and approved by an authorized State of California inspector prior to the system being put into operation.
Systems which produce one to two kilowatts of power will take our installers from one to four days to install.
In some cases, power may be turned off for a maximum of 30 minutes if the system needs a new circuit breaker to be installed in your electrical panel.
The inverter in the Future System is independent of power produced by your power company. In the event of a severe storm, the power coming from your local utility would not be interrupted. An added feature is that the inverter includes circuits which isolate the solar electric system from your house wiring in the event of any problem.
The standard one or two kilowatt systems will not provide electricity during power outages. An option will be available, however, which will offer limited amounts of stored emergency power in batteries during power outages.
Each of the systems is designed on the basis of peak power, produced during both bright sunlight and even cloudy days. On the average, a one kilowatt system will produce approximately 2,000 kilowatt hours annually and a two kilowatt system will produce approximately 4,000 kilowatt hours annually.
Thanks to technology, today solar panels have a life expectancy of 25 years or more.
The most important benefits are the reduction of your current electric bill and stabilizing your energy costs in the future. Today, consumption of electric power is growing at 2% per year with an even higher rate of growth in the years to come. Nuclear power represents 20% of our power production today and will be reduced in the next two decades. Hydroelectric production from dams in no longer growing and represents 10% of our production. And with current limitations on coal plants, we are becoming increasingly dependent upon imported oil and natural gas, a risky proposition as we have recently seen. The only thing we know for sure about the future cost of electricity is that it is growing predictably more expensive as each year passes.
The benefit of solar power is its positive impact on air quality and all other aspects of the environment. According to the US Government Energy Information Administration, over one-fourth of all air pollution is produced by burning fossil fuels to produce electric power. This would be completely eliminated by utilizing solar power to produce the same energy.
If you want to know how just your system alone effects the environment, consider that installing just One Kilowatt of Solar Electric will result in reducing emissions over the course of the 25-year life expectancy of the panels by the following amounts…
Carbon Dioxide: 49,500 pounds
Nitrous Oxide: 125 pounds
Sulfur Dioxide: 400 pounds
