What's the Savings Advantage to Me?
By installing Solar Panels and Systems on your home, you have 2 great advantages - FREE Energy is being supplied to your home. Secondly, the energy is extremely efficient since it is right there on your home or grid panel in your yard. Virtually, no power line loss of energy over long transmission lines!
Am I still on the "Grid"?
The answer to that will depend on the system you select with our consultant. "Most" people like to stay on the grid and supplement their power with the regular electric company they have. This allows them to power their home when the sun is shinning and purchase power from the power company when it is dark. Course, if the Grid goes down at night time, you will also loose power since the sun isn't available to supplement your needs during the night.
Can I avoid that problem? Be totally energy independent? Yes. It will require additional equipment of Battery banks that will provide backup power. Now, when the grid happens to go down, you will still have power! Battery backup systems are becoming increasingly popular due to decreasing prices and advanced technology with batteries.
Am I now considered "Green"? Mostly. As more people switch to solar systems, the utility companies will have less need from bigger and more complex "dirty" utility factories. By adding a solar system to your home, you are absolutely helping our world becoming greener!
