Save Money AND The Environment With Solar Power in Westlake Village, California!
Like much of Southern California, Westlake Village has beautiful weather. With a comfort score of 86 out of 100 and an average 285 days of sunshine per year, it’s hard to disagree! Not only does this make it a great city to live in, but a great city to invest in solar energy as well. The high amount of sunshine days means your solar panel system will be working at high efficiency, and the high comfort score means you’ll probably be enjoying the weather at the same time!
Solar power is one of the cleanest forms of energy, producing no air or water pollution, nor any greenhouse gasses. Senate Bill 100 pushes California to be free of fossil fuels by 2045, and installing a solar panel system on your Westlake Village home will help the state reach that goal!
Will solar power save me money?
So you know that your system will be working at high efficiency, but will that translate to savings you can see?
Of course! The state of California is one of the highest-ranking states when it comes to twenty-year savings on solar panel systems. With an average sized system of 6kW, Californians can save up $29,424 after 20 years!
Although it’s possible for you to make money with your solar panel system, the average household system typically does not generate enough unused electricity to actually create a profit from selling the excess energy. However, with an average sized California solar panel system (6-kilowatt) and the average household, it’s possible for homeowners to meet over 90% of their energy needs!
Maximizing Your Profit
You’ve installed a home solar panel system and begun declaring your independence from the utility companies, but did you know that you would begin to see actual profits when you pair it with a solar battery storage system?
Your solar panel system helps fight the use of fossil fuels and is a great investment, but pairing it with a solar storage battery can help increase the self sufficiency of your home and maximize your solar investment! The energy that your system generates would otherwise go to waste is stored in your solar battery storage system for use later or to be sold back to the grid during peak hours at a profit!
The Tesla Powerwall or LG batteries are examples of smart battery storage systems that allow for remote management and reporting from you phone, computer or tablet! You can view your usage to note trends and monitor your energy habits, or even adjust your storage based on those habits!
With these dashboards you can adjust your system to use the electric company’s utilities during off peak hours. This will allow your system to create a surplus of energy while you’re buying it at low rates. You can then take your surplus energy and “sell it back” during on-peak hours, generating a return of up to fifty three percent!
