RESIDENTIAL SOLAR

CONSIDERING THE SWITCH?

Residential Solar energy is on an upward trend with homeowners. With all the incentives and benefits associated with solar energy it’s not hard to understand why. If you are considering solar for your home, we can provide you with a free, personalized design for your home.

2 TYPES OF RESIDENTIAL SOLAR

ROOFTOP INSTALLATION

Rooftop installations are the most common solar installs for homeowners. As a homeowner you might as well utilize that unused space on your roof for something that adds value to your home and money back in your pocketbook. This is also the most practical space because it is fairly large and gets the most direct exposure to sunlight. Using your last 12 months of electricity usage, Lidar technology and satellite imagery of your home we can design a system that is customized for your family. At Peak to Peak Solar we will walk you through every step of the process until that switch is flipped and your solar panels are producing power.

GROUND MOUNTS

Not every roof is perfect for solar panels.  Unfortunately, some roofs are too cut up or have too much shade. For these homes ground mounts are the way to go. We can install a system anywhere on your property that receives plenty of sunshine and hook it into your existing meter.

HOW SOLAR WORKS

1. Sunlight Hits the Solar Panels and Generates a DC Current.

2. The Inverter Converts the DC Electricity to AC.

3. The AC Electricity is Supplied to the Building.

4. Any Excess of Electricity Flow into the Grid

5. Electricity is Drawn from the Grid when the Supply from the Solar Panels is not Sufficient

ADVANTAGES OF RESIDENTIAL SOLAR ENERGY

When it comes to an investment like adding solar panels to your home you want to be sure you understand everything. There are many things like Net Metering or Smart Metering that are huge factors in the decision.

NET METERING

This is a billing system that credits owners of solar panels for the electricity they add to the grid. During times where your panels are not producing electricity, like night time, your home will draw from the grid. You can think of the grid as a big battery storing all your excess electricity credits until you need them.

SMART METERING

Many utility companies have introduced smart metering. This is a meter that monitor your usage based on what time of day you use your power. During peak hours you are paying up to double your normal rate. The peak hours are of course during those times of day when families usually consume the most energy. The Time of Use (TOU) system will most likely cause your electric bill to rise unless you are able to manage a busy life around the power company’s billing system.
