The benefits of solar energy keep growing. Power from the sun has always been free, but it has also been difficult to capture, store and reuse. Not any more. Today's technologies – combined with a concerted effort by nations around the world to reduce our dependency on dirty power utilities – have created what some are calling “the perfect solar storm:” prices are low, incentives are high, and the benefits of solar power are unmatched by any other type of energy.
Many factors contribute to solar energy's unparalleled affordability:
Rebates, Subsidies & Incentives | Our local communities, the State of California and the U.S. Federal government are all providing significant rebates and subsidies for homeowners who convert to solar energy. Our solar technicians will manage all the paperwork required to assure you receive each appropriate rebate.
Equipment | Solar technologies are able to harness the sun's power in an effective, affordable manner. As the panels and equipment for collecting, converting and transmitting solar energy have improved, so have the savings you'll earn from switching to solar.
Leasing | Instead of requiring you to buy solar panels (requiring a large up-front investment,) we offer leasing programs so you can immediately benefit from solar power and start saving money instantly – without the necessity of a large deposit or down payment.
Increased Home Value | A solar energy system is the only home improvement that pays for itself – and also increases the value of your home. Currently, homes in Southern California that have solar panels installed enjoy an increased home value of approximately $5.50 per watt of solar energy created. That means that a solar panel system that costs $20,000 to install could bring a return of $30,000+ (for a 5 Kilowatt system).
One reason solar energy has grown in popularity is because it is nearly 100% hassle-free. The solar panels are designed to be simple and functional: unlike the mechanisms used to transfer traditional sources of energy, your solar panels have no moving parts, which means there is virtually no maintenance required once they are installed.
(Want evidence of their reliability? Our solar panels are warrantied for 25 years, and our inverters are warrantied for 10 years. If it is ever required, we provide all maintenance at no charge to you.
A source of energy is considered renewable if it is not depleted by use. Whereas coal-burning electric plants will eventually run out of coal to burn, electricity created by solar panels will always have a free, unlimited power source: our sun.
In addition to harnessing renewable energy, solar panels often create an energy surplus. If your home's panels are generating more electricity than your family requires, (you'll actually see your meter run in reverse!) the excess goes back to your utility company and you receive credit towards your next bill. The solar panels on your roof will actually help alleviate our planet's growing energy demands.
Best of all, solar energy is clean energy: solar technologies release far fewer pollutants into the atmosphere than their fossil-fueled counterparts. Your clean, green home solar system can offset thousands of pounds of harmful CO2, NOx and SO2 emissions generated by traditional energy sources. Just as trees use the sun's energy to convert harmful carbon dioxide into healthy oxygen, your solar panels are helping to protect the health of our planet.
