Are Solar Panels Economical?

With available utility rebates of up to $3.75 per installed AC watt and a 30% federal tax credit,  it is possible for homeowners to save up to 75% off of solar electric installation. On average, this will result in a reducuction of 40% off of
the homeowner's energy consumption bills.

How A Solar Energy System Works

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are mounted on your roof, where they collect energy from the sun in the form of direct current electricity.The direct current electricity is then converted by an inverter into alternating current electricity for use by your home.The alternating current electricity is fed directly into your home, just like it is from your electricity provider. And since the solar energy system works in tandem with your electricity provider, you'll continue to get electricity from them when you need more than the solar energy system can provide (e.g. during overcast weather and at night). All you need is at least 100 square feet of un-shaded roof area facing predominantly southward (a little to the east or west is okay).

Solar energy systems produce electricity for 25 years or more.

Easy Maintenance:
Solar energy systems are reliable, durable and virtually maintenance-free. Not only that, but solar panels are designed to withstand significant temperature changes, hail up to 1 inch at 50 MPH, and up to 150 MPH winds.

Appreciation:
As a home improvement, solar energy systems have been shown to add $20,000 to a homes value for every $1,000 in annual electricity savings. And since electricity rates continue to rise, you can expect the value of your solar energy system to appreciate more rapidly.

Solar Fast Facts:
Solar power has been around since the late fifties with almost all space satellites being solar powered.  Aside from being a green technology, solar has become an economically viable investment for businesses and individuals.  The reasons are:

1. Increased competition in the marketplace has dropped solar panel prices by as much as 40%in the last 3 years.
2. Many utilities offer rebate programs that will pay for over one third of the system cost.
3. The federal government will issue a 30% tax credit to the tax payer for solar energy investments.

PV Solar System Cost Analysis:
A 3000 SF house will use approximately 16,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.  A 3850 kilowatt PV system will produce approximately 5735 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, or 36% of usage.
