Solar power is the energy created by solar panels when the sun's light hits a solar cell. Solar panels generate DC (direct current)power but your home runs on AC (alternating current) power so an inverter is installed to "invert" the DC power to AC power. The output of the inverter, in turn, powers your home. Depending on the specifics of your home and the amount of solar panels installed, a solar electric system can produce up to 100% of your home's energy needs. As a result, it is possible for the owner of a property to effectively eliminate his or her energy bill and in doing so help the environment by reducing harmful carbon-based emissions. In one minute enough energy falls from the sky to power the world for an entire year, and the sun should be around for about 6 billion more years. That's just about the biggest sustainable resource available. Not to mention, San Diego receives more peak hours of sunlight than any other part of the country. Now is the time to harness this energy.
Solar PV (Photovoltaic) energy is nothing new. Bell Laboratories created the first solar cell back in the 50's. Building speed throughout the 60's and 70's, solar electric became increasinly popular, especially as many thought the oil crises of the mid-late 70's would put a chokehold on Americans and future gasoline prices. In fact, President Jimmy Carter even had solar panels installed on the White House during his term.
Many people believe it is beneficial to wait for the latest new technology to come out before installing a solar energy system on their home. Please note, the average panel efficiency rating is 14-16%. Originally, when panels were first made available to the public, their efficiency was approximately 6%. With the current rate of increase in your electric bill at 6.7% per year, waiting for an increase in efficiency of solar panels before installing a system would never make financial sense. With our great selection of finance programs available, there has never been a better time to go solar.
