If you’ve thought about getting a solar power system for your San Diego property, you’ve probably thought about energy awareness. Even if you aren’t ready to make the switch, it’s helpful to consider all the factors of alternative power. At Soltech Electric in San Diego, our solar specialists can answer any questions you have about how solar works and increase your energy awareness. We make solar power uncomplicated so you can see how this kind of energy can help on both a small and large scale.
We use an extensive process to determine the best placement for solar panel systems based off the sun’s path through the San Diego sky. We install panels in a certain way to harvest the maximum power throughout the day. Once the energy is collected, the system converts DC to compatible AC that is required to power lights and appliances in San Diego’s homes and businesses. Built-in monitoring for the inverters lets you keep track of your panels’ performance and sends alerts in an application when experiencing any drops in efficiency.
Our solar systems are a dependable way to power your property, and also offer the ability to positively impact the environment in San Diego. During the lifetime of a solar power system, it can reduce amounts of carbon dioxide, smog, and other particles by thousands of pounds. This creates the same positive effects for the atmosphere as planting acres of trees. The American Lung Association has named San Diego as having some of the worst air quality in the nation, so there’s no better time than now to switch to solar energy.
Don’t let the upfront cost of solar panels turn you away. A solar power system makes sustainable, eco-friendly power a reality for San Diego properties, and should be looked at as a long-term investment. An extended Solar Investment Tax Credit provides incentives of up to 30 percent of the total cost to help with the initial price. SDG&E caters to net metering, meaning your unused solar energy is exchanged for credits to lessen or possibly eliminate your energy bills. Solar power also adds to the resale value of your San Diego property.
