You may think that the sun doesn’t shine as much in the Pacific Northwest as it does in most other parts of the country, but it definitely shines more than enough to make your home electrically self-sufficient. We offer residential solar installations to help you do your part to improve the state of the environment and to save money each month on the cost of electricity.
Solar panels have become significantly more affordable in recent years, and the technology for solar energy has come a long way in the last few decades. Now is a perfect time to invest in a solar panel system for your home. In the past, you may not have wanted to spend the money due to concerns that the return wouldn’t have been substantial enough. However, the time is now right to use the sun’s energy to power your home’s electrical system.
A lot of cities in the country offer electrical customers the chance to save a bit of money if they put a solar system on their homes. For instance, Seattle offers a tax credit to residents who have a solar system in place. You may also be able to sell back the surplus electricity created by your system to the electrical provider and actually get some money off of your solar system. These programs make it more affordable and advantageous to install a solar system where you live.
Solar panels are not just for the creation of electricity. You can also get a water-heating system that is powered by the sun. Active solar water heating with direct circulation systems function well in places where the temperature doesn’t drop below freezing very often. Passive solar water heating systems are generally less expensive than active systems, but they are not as efficient. On the other hand, they may be more dependable and last longer.
