Is My Home Or Business A Good Place For A Solar Energy System?
Thanks to more than 300 days each year of abundant sunshine, California is generally a great place for solar energy. The fact that the state and many local jurisdictions offer rebates and other financial benefits to California businesses and homeowners who installed solar energy systems makes installing a solar energy system in California an even more attractive option. There are other factors to consider, such as the location of your home or business and your energy needs. You can get more answers about a solar energy system is a good fit for your home or business by scheduling a free, no-obligation consultation with Solar Watt Solutions.
How Large Should My Residential Or Commercial Solar Energy System Be?
The size and generating power of your solar energy system will depend on many factors, including your individual energy needs, the size of your roof, and how much of your energy you want to produce with solar power. Generally speaking solar energy system sizes for residential homeowners range from 2-10kW and a typical commercial system will range from 25kW to in excess of 100kW.
How Much Money Can I Save On My Energy Costs By Installing a Solar Energy System?
The amount of money you or your business can shave off your monthly utility bill by installing a solar energy system on your home or business depends on a variety of factors. The size of your system and the percentage of your total energy supply that is provided by solar power help determine your savings. However, most solar energy clients find they can totally eliminate their monthly electricity bill, which in California averages $200 and can climb as high as $500 for larger households.
Will My Solar Energy System Still Work On Cloudy Days?
Solar energy systems still work on cloudy days, but they will not produce as much energy as on a clear, sunny day.
In general, solar power panels produce about half as much energy on cloudy days than they will on sunny days.
Also, most solar energy systems are capable of storing energy that is generated on sunny days so the power can be used when it is needed on days when cloudy conditions prevent the system from generating enough power.
Can I Finance The Cost Of My Solar Watt Solutions System?
Solar Watt Solutions can help you arrange financing of your residential or commercial solar energy system at the most competitive interest rates.
As a result, when you finance the purchase of your solar energy system, you may find that you are actually paying less each month than you have been paying a utility each month.
