What is solar energy?

The sun’s rays are a free, infinitely renewable source that can power your home’s electronics and appliances. Solar panels, usually installed on the roof, work by using photovoltaic (PV) cells to harvest the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity.

There are two types of solar systems

A grid-tied system is the least expensive solar system to install. This system allows you to generate your own electricity for your home, thus saving you money. When you’re not using the solar panels, like at night, your electricity is provided through the utility company’s grid or a network of power stations.

Some of the benefits of a grid-tied system are the ability to feed excess energy back into the grid through a process called net metering. By using net metering, which is available in most areas, your meter spins forward when you use energy from the utility company, your meter spins slower when you generate your own energy and the meter even spins backwards when you feed energy back into the grid!

A stand-alone PV system is perfect for those in more rural areas that operate independently from the utility company’s grid. While they can cost more initially, they are still a good choice for generating your own energy.

Why should you use solar energy?

Solar energy can save you money on your energy bill while promoting a better environment with a lower dependency on fossil fuels. Non-renewable energy sources like oil, coal and gas are becoming increasingly scarce. By using solar energy, you are helping stop the damage being done to the environment, and your wallet.

Cooling and heating your home can contribute up to 56% of your energy bill. Solar systems save you money now and can make you more money in the future because it raises the value of your house. Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development have shown that home values rise an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in annual utility bills.

Rebates and incentives for using solar energy.

Another benefit of a solar system is tax credits provided by the U.S. federal government for renewable-energy systems. Also, depending on where you live, you may be eligible for incentives through your utility company. To find out more about incentives available to you, visit www.dsireusa.org.
