Bay Area Solar Panels Installed Efficiently
California is a booming solar state. Which city is leading the way in renewable energy usage? It shouldn’t be a surprise that San Francisco is taking every step possible to be completely dependent on renewable energy in the next few decades. In the Bay Area, solar panels are really taking off. As a homeowner, now is the time to jump on board the solar initiative. Why? Investing in solar energy in the Bay Area is more affordable than ever, with major federal tax credits (currently 30%) set to drop in just a few years. With rising grid prices and greenhouse gases, it’s no wonder that more and more people see the benefits of investing in a solar panel system — both financial and environmentally.
Did you know that the average size solar panel system for a Bay Area home could pay itself off in as little as 5 to 6 years with all the rebates and tax credits available? After that, your system starts SAVING you money and protects you against those spiking utility expenses. Solar panel systems are also a great way to add value to your home if you are considering selling it down the road.
Semper Solaris believes customers deserve freedom of choice when it comes to solar – that’s why we allow you to choose the right solar panels for your specific project, from great leading brands like Panasonic, Solaria, and Sunrun.
Signs It’s Time for a New Roof
A home is a big investment. There’s a reason why a roof is designed to provide so much protection, insulation, and a barrier against the elements. When a roof stops being able to do this job, whether due to leaks or due to mildew, it’s time to consider your options. Sometimes, the damage or age of a roof is simply beyond repair. That’s when it’s time to call in the professionals at Semper Solaris. Our Bay Area roofing contractors are always ready to help!
So what are some key signs it may be time for a roof replacement?
- Water spots on the ceiling
- Leaks, cracks or flashing problems
- Sagging or uneven spots
- Water buildup on flat roofs
- Mold, algae, mildew or rot
- Structural damage
- Too many shingles or tiles missing

Maximize Your Solar Investment With Battery Storage
You may be wondering why you would need to add anything to your home energy system after having solar panels installed. The truth is that most solar contractors have overlooked the option of solar battery storage. Now, with growing availability and affordability, solar storage is becoming a real option for homeowners to consider when going solar.
Battery storage helps you maximize your solar investment primarily by allowing you to avoid being overcharged for needing electricity peak use hours. Instead, your solar panel system will send any overproduction to your home battery for storage. Later, when your panels aren’t producing enough electricity for your energy demands, you can opt to pull from your reserve rather than the grid.
Why would you want to do this? Because solar customers are facing high time-of-use rates, which are spikes in utility charges for those hours that typically people use energy the most — like during the evening when solar panels aren’t providing any electricity. While net metering provides you credits to cover this, the spikes in costs could dig into those savings more than you would like. Having a solar battery gives you the freedom to use your own produced electricity at a later time, making you less dependent on the grid and providing you a backup option in case of a blackout or other emergency.
