The various links on our site will provide educational information on renewable energy. Solar power can be an expensive proposition initially, but there are many steps that you can take before installing a solar system that can reduce the size of the system and result in a more economical investment. For example, reducing the kilowatt usage will reduce the cost of a solar system. For every dollar spent on energy efficiency within your home, $3.00 - $5.00 can be saved on a solar installation. In addition, there are state and federal tax incentives for implementing solar power.
We will recommend various ways to reduce energy consumption with little or no change to your life style. For example, purchasing power conditioning equipment for your home can save you 8 - 25% on your utility bill, depending on the power factor (.77 or less) of your electrical system. We will be offering power conditioning equipment for business, commercial and industrial properties in the near future.
An energy audit is the first step. Some of the items that you can review on your own are your previous 12 months of electric bills, an inventory of your electrical appliances and your lighting needs. A simple change to compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs can reduce kilowatt usage by up to 20%. Do you have energy star appliances? Do you have “phantom” loads continually using electricity?
Your site conditions can have a substantial cost impact on your energy usage and the implementation of a solar system. We recommend that a “solar site assessment “be done before you make the decision to proceed with the installation of a solar system.
