Check out these super sleek solar panels in Fountain Valley, CA.
Our team of solar experts had a great time working with this homeowner on their journey to solar.
As with most SoCal homeowners they had two main reasons for wanting to add rooftop solar panels. High electricity rates and a desire for clean energy.
Fountain Valley sits right in the middle of Orange County, which means high utility bills. The average Fountain Valley homeowner pays 15.98¢/kWh. Keep in mind, this is a base rate and does not consider peak rates which can climb to over 40¢/kWh depending on the time of use rate increases.
For further context, this means the average Fountain Valley resident pays 4.17% more than the California average and 34.51% more than the national average.
Adding rooftop solar panels, like this homeowner did, immediately reduces your monthly electricity bills and allows you to save tens of thousands of dollars in the long-run.
Also, adding solar panels can drastically cut down on your carbon footprint. Rather than using grid-based electricity that utility companies generate in unsustainable way, solar panels allow you to capture energy to power your home carbon free!

If you’re considering going solar and trying to figure out how many panels you need for your home, you’ve come to the right place. The number of solar panels needed for any given property depends on various factors such as geographic location, climate, family lifestyle, and much more. We can guide you through this entire process so you have all the necessary information to make an educated decision before choosing among solar panel types or installing a solar panel system.
You’ve probably figured out why cardinal directions would be relevant for a solar panel installation and may have a good hunch as to why architectural factors would be important.
Most of us know that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. However, it would take an expert to properly explain why solar panels are the most efficient when they face south, and to quantify the impact shading will have on performance. The good news is that you don’t need to hire an architect or a scientist – a solar specialist can show you exactly what needs to be installed where in order to dodge most of the shadows cast upon by trees, chimneys, and other objects that might hinder direct sunlight. AMECO’s Energy Experts will be able to create a 3D rendering of your property and advise on the optimal layout given your home’s specifics!
If you live in beautiful sunny SoCal, then you’ve won the solar lottery. Whether you need a commercial solar panel for your business or a residential solar panel for your home, AMECO will calculate the panels needed based on usage, desired aesthetic features, and some formulas they need to compute, giving you the most advantageous outcome possible. Given the microclimates in Southern California, your solar production can vary drastically depending on your specific microclimate. AMECO’s Energy Experts take this into account when determining how many panels your system will require!
A common question we receive is “my neighbor has 20 panels, but you are recommending 30 panels. Why do I need more panels when we live in the same size house?” Let’s do a side-by-side comparison between two families who are neighbors and live in identical 3,000 square foot homes. In Family A, we have a young married couple who work long hours during the week and enjoy weekend getaways outside of the house to wind down and relax. Since they barely spend any time at home, they usually end up with an electricity bill of $100/month. Family B, however, is on the other end of the spectrum. They consist of middle-aged parents who love entertaining guests on a regular basis and two teenage kids who are either glued to their electronics or are inviting their own friends to swim in their pool on the weekends. Family B is paying $400 a month! How is this possible? Yes, they both live in 3,000 square foot homes, but their usage differs tremendously.
Oftentimes, buying a new electric appliance triggers clients to look into solar to avoid the increased electricity bills. The question is – how much energy will we consume with this new appliance? Our Energy Experts are trained to provide highly accurate projections no matter the appliance. We have formulas for EVs, Pool Pumps, Pool Heaters, Central Air, Heat Pumps. You name it, we’ve got it!

We got 20 x REC400 installed to have our solar power needs properly met. Also, got Enphase IQ7A and Enphase AC Combiner together with envoy so we can view the production of our solar panel system with our phones and computers.
The main reason I went solar has been the need for lowering electricity costs. Also, in that way I increase the value of my house, which reaffirms how wise my investment is.
All those who are thinking of saving on their electric bills and going solar, you better do it the sooner you can, as the 26% tax credit is valid for systems installed until the end of 2022.
Installers and the whole AMECO team did a great job. They were quick, neat, and I felt how much they care for my stress-free experience.
