Lower Your Electric Bill and Shrink Your Carbon Footprint! Solar Power in Pomona
Residents of Pomona, did you know that electricity production costs vary based on demand? During the summer when demand is at its peak, electricity costs much more to generate than during the winter when demand is low. To help combat this, the city of Pomona has partnered with Southern California Edison to encourage energy conservation and improve energy efficiency.
What can you do?
While the city of Pomona has developed an “Energy Action Plan”, you may be wondering if there’s anything that you can do to help the cause. With large solar panel systems like the 672-kilowatt system installed at Western University, you may feel that your efforts won’t compare.
Every bit counts!
Residential solar panel systems are one of the biggest components in the state’s plan to fully rely on renewable energy sources by the year 2045. These systems allow you to rely less on what the utility companies can provide and more on what nature provides and your system generates! In addition, each home that is powered by solar is another home that no longer demands energy from a fossil fuel source. This will lower the demand for non-renewable energy and increase the demand for more environmentally friendly sources, creating a domino effect that can help the state reach is 2045 goal!
“Is solar power right for me?”
You’ve probably been asking yourself this question for a while now. After all, there’s a reason you’re here reading this page. Chances are, you know enough about solar power to know that it can be beneficial but you’re still unsure about how it will help you. Take this into account: Pomona sees an average of 285 days of sunshine per year. Snow is “virtually unheard of”, and average yearly rainfall is about seventeen inches – much lower than the US average of 39 inches. Long story short, if you don’t currently have a solar panel system installed at your home, you’re losing out on 285 days that could offset most if not all of your electricity needs!
