Yes, solar panels can save you 50% – 100% on your electricity costs! The cost savings will depend on the space available for solar panels and the nature of your property.
Solar panels meet your energy needs year-round thanks to net metering. If you generate excess energy, your meter will go backwards and credit the energy to your utility account. There is nothing wasted!
The energy produced during high performing months can be saved and utilized during lower energy generation periods, such as at night, during the winter, or during power outages.
Batteries offer the option of storing your energy to back up all or a portion of your home and commercial energy consumption for a limited time. With a solar array, batteries allow the owner to create their own closed micro-grid, which can function during a grid outage or without the grid at all.
Right now, batteries are most commonly used to back up only a portion a property’s power, such as critical devices like freezers or medical equipment.
As battery backup options expand and utilities change their billing structures, battery options will only grow!
EV’s are growing in popularity, as is the ability to run on the sun! Most EV’s come with a standard level 1 charger that is capable of charging about 5 miles per hour, billed at a standard rate of electricity from your utility. By adding solar with a level 2 charger, or even a solar inverter with a built-in charger, EV owners are able to charge upwards of 20-30 miles per hour at one fourth or less of the cost!
A level 2 charger quickly becomes a necessity for drivers that put on daily miles. And why not charge for a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the price?
Like any appliance that is electric, solar helps improve the overall return on investment and lowers the cost of operation.
