Solar Power Panels
Buyers of solar power panels have a lot to learn about the solar energy. However, with a solar lease, there is less to learn and remember because the solar power company or installer will be the one purchasing and installing your home solar system.
In a solar lease, the solar power company or solar installer owns your solar power panels—not you. That means the solar company pays for all the costs of buying and installing the right solar energy panels for your home and leases the energy from these panels back to you at a price much less than you currently pay for your electricity from your current utility company. You can simply sit back and enjoy the utility savings!
The first step in getting a solar lease is talking with a contractor who does California solar panel installation. We have tons of experience with solar electricity panels for California, and we would love to talk. Call us now!
There are numerous different solar panel manufacturers that produce solar modules for the United States market. Some of these are well-known for other products, such as Sanyo, Sharp, Mitsubishi, or Kyocera.
Different situations dictate different size and amount of solar panels a home solar system will need. There are numerous solar panel calculators out there that will use information such as your zip code, your utility company, and your typical energy usage per month to generate the cost and size of the home solar energy system right for you. However, it’s important to realize that “size” can mean both energy size and physical size; your energy use will determine how big your home solar power panel energy output needs to be, but your roof size and orientation will determine how large your solar panels can be, how many panels you can fit, and so forth. Luckily, there are a lot of solar panel options out there, so finding a system customized for your needs is more than possible!
When researching solar power panels and solar panel systems, you should also keep in mind each panel or system has a different lifespan. Some solar panels can last as long as 40 years, but most average 25 to 30 years. Many manufacturers today offer a 25-year warranty on the performance of the panels themselves, which means the panel will be
guaranteed to provide so much output over those years. Typically, manufacturers will provide a five- or ten-year warranty on system components like the inverter box that transforms the direct current from the solar panels to usable alternating current for the home.
You should also keep in mind that solar panel efficiency has historically limited solar power panels from being a huge energy source. However, most solar panels today get better efficiency than ever before, so solar has become a very viable source of energy for the home.
