Rooftop PV System Installation
Harnessing solar power, a solar system can easily generate enough solar energy to power your entire house without being dependent on the power grid. With rising electricity costs and power outages in many states of US, an increasing number of home and business owners are looking at renewable energy as an alternative to traditional fossil fuel which has seen steady scarcity ever since the invasion of Ukraine.
Understanding Rooftop PV systems
Rooftop solar systems are the most basic solar energy system available in the commercial market which involves installing electricity-generating solar panels on your roof. PV (photovoltaic) systems are capable of photovoltaic power generation by converting solar energy into electricity. Residential solar PV capacity depends greatly on the number of panels installed in your rooftop solar PV system.
The inverter of a solar power generation system is responsible for converting solar power captured by the photovoltaic cells and convert it into electricity. This not only decreases your electricity bills but with a large enough rooftop solar power system like a solar array, you can easily sell back excess solar power generated to the electric power grid of your area.
How to Know Whether Your Home Qualifies for Solar Installation?
The easiest way to know whether your home qualifies for a solar installation is by using apps like Google Project Sunroof and PVWatts, an NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) app that uses satellite imagery from Google Earth and other sources to determine whether your rooftop is a good fit for a rooftop photovoltaic power station.
But if you want a better inspection as well as learn about rooftop solar system costs, you can contact your nearest dependable solar service provider like Local Solar. We will send an experienced inspector to inspect your location and determine whether a solar installation is viable or not.
How Installing Solar Panels Help You
Installing PV systems in your home is far more beneficial than you think. For starters, a basic rooftop PV system can easily bring down your energy bills by 30-40%. Depending on which state you live in, this can mean huge savings for you.
With a solar battery installed, you can easily keep your lights on even when there are power outages. In some places in California, things are so bad that power outages can last for days at a time. If you live somewhere with a high crime rate, keeping your lights on can be the difference between safety and being a crime victim.
Financing Options for Rooftop Solar PV Systems
Installing a solar panel system can be expensive, there is no beating the bush around the fact. But just like most expensive but essential things like cars and houses, there are multiple solar financing options to choose from. Solar loans are the most common as they come packed with federal government tax credits and solar buyback rebates. With the low monthly payments, you'll be able to pay back just within a few years.
