What Goes into a Solar Installation?
The sun shines all around us in California, providing a reliable source of energy. Why should the trees, flowers and cacti get to enjoy it all?
With solar panels, homeowners can harness the power of the sun to help reduce their energy consumption, electric bills and carbon footprint. Solar panels contain photovoltaic cells, which capture photons from the sun and convert them to energy that can be used to power your home, office and more.
With little to no upfront fees, you can start saving money as soon as your panels come online. Of course, you first need to hire a great company to perform the solar installation.
So, what can you expect when it comes time to work with a contractor and actually install solar panels onto your roof?
It all starts with a solar energy expert performing an energy analysis of your home. This highly trained individual will asses the energy needs of your home and how much sunlight your roof receives throughout the day. With your budget in mind, the installation expert can then recommend a solar panel array size to meet your energy needs and inform you of available financing options.
When all the paperwork is signed, your solar power company will pull the required permits, deliver your panels, and install them onto your roof with the help of a framing system. They’ll also hook up the solar inverter, which converts the energy the panels absorb from the sun into the type of current your appliances and light bulbs recognize.
When you choose to work with Semper Solaris, our installation package includes all hardware, such as mountings and flashings, plus a power inverter and all required electrical wiring.
A Few Reasons to Consider Solar Panels
For most homeowners, the reason to invest in solar panels is all about the bottom line.
However, the cost of solar panels for a home have been dropping as the technology and manufacturing infrastructure improves.
In addition to cost, we know that many Californians care about lowering their reliance on unsustainable energy sources. Solar installation is a solution that uses the natural energy of the sun to help power your home. And, because a rooftop solar panel system can create enough energy to meet the electrical needs of the entire home or building that it is installed on, you can save thousands of dollars in energy bills.
As forecasts predict energy costs will continue to rise in the future, solar panels can shield you from increasingly large electric bills, easily paying for themselves over the course of their usage.
