With its plentiful sunshine, California is perfect for residential solar energy. Generating your own electricity with solar reduces your carbon footprint and allows you to offset your energy bills. Since the electricity you create with solar panels can power any electric appliance in your home, there are numerous ways to save.
The more electric systems you have, the greater the benefits you can get by installing solar—especially if you’re considering electrifying your home. As a leading solar company in Monterey, Salinas, and Santa Cruz, Premo Solar can help find the right system for you to power your home with clean, renewable energy. Here are some common household appliances that you can run on solar power:
1. Heat Pumps
Since more than half of a home’s energy usage comes from heating and cooling, you can save by powering your home’s HVAC system with energy you generate yourself! Since heat pumps and ductless mini split heat pumps run exclusively on electricity, solar panels can power a heat pump and bring you affordable and reliable heating and cooling all year long.
2. Electric Water Heaters
Heat pumps can do more than just condition the air in your home—they can also power electric water heaters! Electric heat pump water heaters are more efficient than gas water heaters, and they can run entirely on clean solar energy.
3. Pool Pumps & Heaters
Does running a pool pump and heater make you dread your summer energy bills? Well, say goodbye to the high cost of powering your pool with solar panels! Solar pool pumps require less energy to run and installing solar panels to power your pool will take the stress out of pool management, year-round.
4. Electric Vehicle Chargers
California is making big moves on switching to renewable energy, and electric cars are a large part of the net-zero push. Charging your EV with solar power will save you money on charging and completely cut your emissions.
5. Window Air Conditioners
Window ACs use a lot of energy—especially during a summer heat wave. By powering your air conditioner with solar energy you can see significant savings on your cooling bills.
