By choosing our no-down payment option, you don’t have to pay any cash at all for the first year. This gives you a 12-month head start to collect all available rebates for the system. In general, you could be receiving up to 45% of the total system cost from state and federal grants during that first year. When the grace period ends, you can choose to pay off the system’s balance, or take advantage of our wide selection of financing options to cover for it instead. By doing so, you will be up for just a low monthly payment that you can easily cover with the lower energy bill and the SREC earnings, achieving a remarkable cash surplus for the following 18 years. Switching to solar energy will do wonders to your revenue.
Promsun represent the best choice, from an investment point of view. By taking advantage of the available rebates, these systems are not only affordable, but also a revenue source for your home. By going solar, you protect the environment both now and in the long term. Solar power allows you to cut down or even completely cancel your energy costs, helps save the environment and, as an added bonus, you get access to a wide array of financial incentives. You could be eligible for a 30% Federal Tax Credit off the system’s installation cost. States are also expected to introduce their own rebate systems soon. With an average home solar panel installation you will receive more than $100,000 in monetary benefits, while getting back your investment in four to seven years.
Why Invest in Residential Solar Power?
1. Cut down on energy costs
2. Benefit from the substantial rebates
3. According to the new SRECs law (Solar Renewable Energy Credits), you can profit on the excess energy you produce. To see the seven reasons why you should not let this opportunity go to waste, click here. … Financial
Types of Home Systems
The most widely available system is the roof-mount. Provided that your home is properly oriented towards the sun and there are no external obstacles casting shadows, this system provides the highest cost effectiveness. Solar panels are generally recommended to be placed facing southeast, south or southwest. In case your rooftop doesn’t have the proper orientation, you should consider the ground-mount solution.
These are preferred for houses that are either not properly oriented towards the sun, or have substantial shading on their roofs. If you have adequate space around your house, you can opt for a ground-mount system. The contractor will build the system with an angle an orientation that will maximize energy production. Following location selection and building of the structure, solar panels are placed and connected to the inverters.
Batteries for Grid-Tied and Off-Grid Systems
These systems are not connected to utility lines, distributed through an electric provider. You should have backup batteries to provide reliable power. The size of the battery bank will depend on how much electricity will be needed at the given site and how many days of storage will be required. The average amount of time is between 4 to 7 days. Battery based systems need a controller and battery box. Usually a diesel, gasoline or propane generator is included with an off-grid system. These generators help the batteries and will support the site during a prolonged period of time with little to no sunlight.
An off-grid home system comes with its own complete, self-contained power generating station. It’s not connected to any utility power lines and the power needed is produced on-site. These systems need careful coordination of the system’s capacity, energy storage capabilities and the system loads. An average off-grid home system will have a solar bundle, battery bank, an inverter and other various components that will be needed for the system’s control, monitoring and safety.
Off-grid home systems usually have additional energy sources for use during lengthy periods of cloudiness. Some of these energy sources can be hydroelectric generators, fossil fuel generators or windmills.
The cost of off-grid systems vary, depending on their size. Small systems have limited energy and are used for small spaces, such as a cabin or for an appliance system. They can be installed for approximately $1,000. On the other hand, larger systems, designed for an energy efficient home, will have the capacity to run average loads of energy. These installations will cost $15,000 or more but with all available incentives a third or more of that cost will be eliminated in the first year.
Grid-tied homes are connected to utility power lines, allowing the home to use and store solar electricity when the sun is up and use utility power when the sun sets. If there is a utility power failure, this system will automatically switch to battery power. During a power outage, the home runs like an off-grid home. Once power is restored, the system will revert back to the combination of solar and grid power. As an occupant, you probably won’t even notice the difference and probably won’t even know there was an outage!
The battery system can be tailored to only provide enough power for emergencies or for lower utilization. That said, the larger the storage and backup capacities, the more expensive the system will be. When batteries are fully charged and the sun is shining, homeowners can literally sell power back to their utility provider at a retail rate.
The average, medium size system from 2 Kilowatts to 4 Kilowatts with a battery backup will cost approximately between $20,000 to $40,000. Using all available incentives a third or more of that cost will be eliminated in the first year.
