Solar energy is a renewable and abundant power source, reducing reliance on fossil fuels. It helps lower electricity bills and has minimal maintenance costs. Solar panels can be installed in various locations, making them accessible to many. Additionally, solar power increases the resale value of your home and reduces carbon emissions, contributing to environmental sustainability.
The number of solar panels needed to power a house varies based on energy consumption and sunlight exposure. On average, a home may require approximately 15-25 solar panels. Factors influencing this include the household’s electricity usage, the panel’s wattage, and the amount of sunlight received in the area.
A house can run indefinitely on solar power alone if equipped with sufficient solar panels and a robust battery storage system. The system must generate and store enough energy during the day to power the home overnight or during periods of low sunlight. However, this greatly depends on location, energy consumption, and system size.
Absolutely! While south-facing roofs are ideal for solar panels due to their exposure to the sun, it’s not a strict requirement. East and west-facing roofs can still generate a substantial amount of solar energy. Modern solar panels are efficient and can capture sunlight at various angles. So, even without a south-facing roof, solar can be a viable and beneficial option for your home.
Solar panel systems are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Most manufacturers guarantee their panels for 25-30 years, but their lifespan often extends beyond this. Solar panels will likely last longer and continue producing significant power with proper maintenance and care. So, you can look forward to many years of sustainable energy from your system.
Yes, like most equipment, solar panels do degrade over time. This is known as their degradation rate. Solar panels lose about 0.5% – 1% of their yearly efficiency. However, after 25 years, most panels can still produce around 80% of their original output.
Yes, we understand the financial concerns of homeowners and emphasize the importance of assisting them through this crucial step. Our solar consultants simplify the process by reviewing various financing options to determine the best fit for each individual. They then connect homeowners with their chosen financial program, making the application process easy. This approach ensures that solar power becomes a feasible and accessible option for homeowners.
