Solar energy comes in three different forms, all of which amount to serious savings for homeowners and businesses alike. By relying on the sun for your electricity and water heating needs, you can reduce your energy expenditures and cut down on your carbon footprint.
If you’re unclear why so many Southern Californians have made the switch to solar, check out our new solar infographic featuring the swashbuckling Three Solar-keteers!
A rooftop photovoltaic (PV) solar electric system allows you to run your home on sunlight rather than relying solely on power from the grid. By taking advantage of a net metering program, you can earn credits on your bills by selling power back to the grid. In addition, the federal government will cover up to 30 percent of the cost of your system through the Renewable Energy Tax Credit.
With AMECO Solar, you have the option to lease your solar panels or take out a loan for the installation costs. Both options will allow your family to switch to Los Angeles or Orange County solar power without having to make a large upfront investment. And you’ll still save thousands on your electricity bills over the life of the system!
Solar water heaters are a great option for those who want to save even more money on your energy bills. By providing up to 80 percent of your hot water needs, you can cut your energy expenses by as much as 70 percent.
Government incentives and solar thermal rebates allow you to save money on the installation costs. At this point in time, you can potentially get 50-60% of your money back by cashing in on the available incentives. In addition, these systems typically last 25 to 30 years, which means you won’t have to worry about replacement for quite some time.
Heating a swimming pool is a considerable expense when relying on a gas or electric heater. Even in the summer when the sun is shining, keeping a large pool warm can cost hundreds of dollars a month.
But with a solar pool system from AMECO Solar, you’ll be able to heat your pool to a reasonable temperature while saving all the money you would have spent on utility bills. Plus, once the solar pool heater is installed, there are little-to-no costs to keep it running each year.
Solar energy has grown substantially in the past few years due the incredible savings that families will realize by making the switch.
