The Benefits of Solar
Solar energy is the world’s cheapest and most abundant energy source. For that reason and in an effort to reduce carbon emissions, it’s becoming increasingly popular for commercial and residential use.
100% Renewable Energy
Solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. It does not require the burning of fossil fuels resulting in less pollution in our air, water, and atmosphere, meaning there is no negative impact on the environment.
Reduce the Cost of Energy
Reducing the cost of energy is the primary benefit and the main driver behind switching to a clean energy source. Long-term savings can be significant, and the maintenance cost of solar energy panels is fairly low.
Solar energy can be used for diverse purposes. It can be used to produce electricity in areas without access to the energy grid or to distill water in regions with limited clean water supplies.
Protect land integrity with sustainable land use practices. The solar project could even host pollinators that benefit other crops.
How does solar work?
Individual photovoltaic (PV) cells are connected to make a PV solar panel. Panels are connected to create a solar array, which can be located on your roof or ground. The size of this system is measured in kilowatts (kW), which is determined by panel wattage and the number of panels. This system will convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity, which travels through wires to an inverter that will convert it to usable alternating current (AC) electricity. System production, in terms of kilowatt-hours (kWh), is dependent on system size (kW), azimuth (compass direction), tilt angle, and geographic location.
Your solar power system size is designed based on your electricity usage, desired energy offset goals, available roof or ground space, and budget. SunVest Solar will work with you to design a solar system that meets your individual needs. After installation, we will monitor the system so you can be assured it is meeting production goals.
What is Net Metering?
Net metering allows commercial and residential customers who generate their own electricity from solar power to sell the electricity they aren’t using back into the grid. Utilities may offer net metering programs voluntarily or as a result of regulatory decisions and it differs depending on state. SunVest stays up-to-date on both state and federal solar initiatives to get you the return on investment you deserve.
