The interest in residential solar electric power has skyrocketed since photovoltaics and panels in general became cheap and efficient. Many have already paved their roofs with solar equipment, while others are still doing the math trying to determine whether it is a profitable venture. If you belong to the latter group, this is the right place to be, since we will be discussing all the ways solar can be implemented in your home.
These days, you do not have to know how solar energy works in order to introduce the technology into your home. There are engineers for that and if you are not sure whether solar is the right choice for you -there are consultants that would be happy to assist!
In the end it all boils down to simple economics and the only question you should be asking yourself is "Will solar actually save me money?" Our Luminext consultants are one of the best in the industry that can provide the answer.
Since we are discussing solar generated electric power, we need to mention two main solutions.
Implementing residential solar electric power with a grid-connected solution means that your solar panels are connected to your house meter. The power you produce is delivered in the utility grid and you get compensated for the excess power you produce. Your meter runs backwards when you produce an excess, but when you cannot produce enough to cover your own needs, you buy electricity from the grid.
Independent solutions on the other hand are a good option in places where connection to the grid is not possible. You may be too far from the grid, or you may live in a state where the utility does not allow you to combine solar with the grid. Independent solutions will always be
Both solutions for residential solar electric power have their own pros and cons that need to be carefully evaluated. More equipment means a larger investment and larger investments may take longer to pay off. You can call a solution the "right one" only if you have the means to make it happen. Fortunately, Luminext can help with that as well.
Our consultants are well acquainted with all the ways you can get residential solar electric power. Depending on the state you live in, it might be possible to even get panels with no upfront payment. These free plans usually involve leasing equipment and we will only recommend them if our calculations say that they will reduce your energy bill.
There are also various federal and state tax rebates as well as other financial reliefs that may apply to solar users and owners in your area. Our consultants are well acquainted with all the benefits you can apply for and they will take them into consideration when they work out a solution.
Luminext consultants take into account your specific needs and tailor a solution accordingly. Even if you live in a flat, solar may still be an option. Just give us a call and we will guide you through all the necessary steps to ensure that solar is your best option.
Our main goal is to reduce your energy bill, so even if solar is not a good fit -we still have loads to offer. Contact us today and let's discuss how we can bring down your energy costs.
