SDG&E, SCE and other utility companies based in Southern California are increasing their rates over 10% each year due to the shutdown of the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant in 2013. Besides recycling and using energy efficient appliances, installation of a quality rooftop solar power system would be the next step to reduce dependency with the utility companies.
More energy hits the earth’s surface from the sun in an hour than all the energy consumed by humans in over a year. We can harness the solar energy and utilize it for our homes and businesses. There are some pros and cons in using solar energy and this should be covered when deciding to go with solar power panels. Solar Panels are the wave of the future and a worthwhile investment to save on electric bills.
Solar energy pros are that solar energy is 100% clean with no greenhouse gas emissions. Solar systems run quietly and there are no moving parts. Solar systems last over 25 years, and the bills are reduced up to 90%. Because of the federal, state and local subsidies and tax incentives being offered by California Solar Initiative (CSI), the system pays for itself in 4-6 years.
Solar energy cons begin with upfront costs because it is not inexpensive to get solar panels for homes. However, with $0 down and low interest rate financing, the initial cost pays off within a few years and solar system owners reap the benefits for several decades. Southern California is blessed with a lot more sun than any other part of the country; the number of sunny days far surpasses the number of cloudy days here.
Aikyum Solar has satisfied solar systems clients in the cities of Mission Viejo, Newport Beach, Orange, Placentia, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, Stanton, Tustin, Villa Park, Westminster and Yorba Linda.
In the 1970s solar panel cost was about $10 per Watt. Currently, the price has fallen to under one dollar per Watt. The price of solar panels has fallen significantly in the past 30 years. We are at a time when rooftop solar systems are the most cost-competitive compared to other alternative forms of energy. Solar energy is abundant and renewable. Southern California residents living in single family homes can install rooftop solar panels.
We are blessed with fantastic sunlight, 30% income tax credits and additional CSI rebates. When you get rooftop solar panels installed, your electric bills are net-metered. Net-metering is when a solar system owner receives retail credit for the energy they generate. Because of the fabulous net-metering laws, your company has to pay you what they charge you. Let’s remember one thing, your utility company wishes to maintain their monopoly and continue to burn fossil fuels and destroy our planet.
Utility companies do not want to pay you to generate your own electricity. All the net-metering laws have been imposed upon them by the California legislature, by the Governor, by the California Public Utility Commision (CPUC), who have gone to bat for you. It took a lot to get these laws on the books. It is up to you to leverage the California Solar Initiative and reap the benefits.
The pros definitely outnumber the cons on solar energy. With reduced up front purchase costs, quick payback periods, now is the time to install rooftop solar powered systems on your home and businesses. Don’t just save money, but save the planet.
