Residential Solar Installation
Also known as a Grid Tied System
Enjoy reduced electric bills as soon as the solar panel system is turned on. As soon as the system starts generating electricity, energy savings range from 20-100% while reducing dependence on polluting fossil fuels. It’s like having a personal power station on your rooftop or property. If the solar power system is owned outright, it will earn revenue from the energy it produces and make profits. If the system is through a solar loan, pay $0 for solar panels and installation and just pay for electricity at a rate that is lower than utility status quo. No matter what option you choose, once you switch to clean, green solar power, you are guaranteed substantial savings.
Homeowners who own their solar panel systems outright don’t just reduce their electric bills but actually start making more energy than they use. It goes back into the “grid,” earning real money for what the system supplies to the power company… Our clients enjoy seeing their meter spin backwards.Solar homes are in demand. Buyers enjoy the benefits of an already installed solar panel system – and all of Solar Energy World’s warranties, service and support that go along with it. Each Kilowatt installed adds $3,000 to the home’s resale value on average. For more info on this topic click here.
Commercial Solar Installation
Business owners and corporate boards see more than just the energy savings and green benefits of commercial solar power panels. Commercial solar panel systems are a lucrative investment vehicle with attractive ROI. As a result, companies actively use solar power to deploy capital and hedge energy risks.
In addition to the financial incentives, companies enjoy the positive value of “going green” with solar panels – from customers that appreciate your forward thinking approach, to employees who enjoy participating in a green effort, and other ancillary benefits.
- 26% federal tax credit on all money spent on solar
- State and local solar energy rebate programs (we’ll certainly detail what’s available in your jurisdiction)
- 50% accelerated bonus depreciation (year 1)
- Up to 200% energy production – so continuous profit from selling energy to the grid
- SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Credit) revenue
With these financial incentives, most commercial entities realize a 3-5 year payoff schedule as well as continued dual revenue streams thereafter via energy savings and SREC revenue.
We assist business owners through the grant, tax credit, depreciation and SREC process to help maximize the return on their solar panel investment.
Off-Grid Solar System Installation Types
An off-grid solar system (off-the-grid, standalone) is the obvious alternative to one that is grid-tied. For homeowners that have access to the grid, off-grid solar systems are usually out of question. Here`s why:
To ensure access to electricity at all times, off-grid solar systems require battery storage and a backup generator (if you live off-the-grid). On top of this, a battery bank typically needs to be replaced after 10 years. Batteries are complicated, expensive and decrease overall system efficiency.
Advantages of Off-Grid Solar Systems
1. No access to the utility grid
Off-grid solar systems can be cheaper than extending power lines in certain remote areas.
Consider off-gird if you’re more than 100 yards from the grid. The costs of overhead transmission lines range from $174,000 per mile (for rural construction) to $11,000,000 per mile (for urban construction).
2. Become energy self-sufficient
Living off the grid and being self-sufficient feels good.
For some people, this feeling is worth more than saving money. Energy self-sufficiency is also a form of security. Power failures on the utility grid do not affect off-grid solar systems.
On the flip side, batteries can only store a certain amount of energy, and during cloudy times, being connected to the grid is actually where the security is. You should install a backup generator to be prepared for these kinds of situations.
