Residential Solar Installation
Residential Solar Installation for the Monterey, Santa Cruz and Salinas Area
Homeowners who switch to solar energy can enjoy the immediate benefits of lower energy prices and reliable power. The long-term advantage of solar energy includes significantly reduced electric bills and a sense of comfort knowing your home is having a positive impact on the local environment.
Deciding to Switch to Solar Panels
When deciding to make the switch to solar power there are a few things to consider before requesting a quote. If you are considering installing solar panels on your roof first consider the overall health of your roof. Installation of a new solar panel system on a new roof is the best approach to avoid having to remove the entire system when it comes time to replace your aging roof.
Second, find out if your roof has the adequate space to accommodate solar panels. South-facing roofs that receive minimal shade can better harness the sun’s power throughout the day. The more exposure your roof gets to the sun, the more panels you can install resulting in more electricity savings.
Choosing the right contractor for your solar project is the most important decision of all. Take great care in selecting a contractor who has a reputation for quality work and adhering to industry best practices. At Premo Solar, we offer a range of solar panel installation solutions for residential homes and commercial buildings. We can accommodate systems that are ground mounted, roof mounted, off-grid, grid interconnected, battery storage and more.
Understanding the Technology
The cells that make up solar panel modules operate by harnessing direct sunlight and converting it into the electricity that powers your home.
The process can be broken down into five simple steps:
- Sunlight hits the solar cells and an electric current is generated inside the panels
- The electric current travels from your solar panels to a large inverter (or several micro-inverters)
- The inverter transforms the solar energy’s direct current (DC) into usable alternating current (AC)
- The AC travels to the breaker box and is used in electrical outlets throughout your home.
- Unused electricity is then sent to a battery or the electrical grid
The mechanics behind solar technology can get complicated but you can rest assured that when working with Premo you have 13 years of acquired solar knowledge and experience backing up your project.
Considering the Future
The wide acceptance of solar energy systems reflects a national trend toward freedom from fossil fuels. Solar panels having no negative impact on the environment quietly store clean, renewable energy all day long. Family members and future generations can receive the benefits of citizen homeowners who choose to protect the planet. On top of the environmental benefits our solar panel systems improve your energy efficiency which increases your home’s value and guards against rising electricity costs.
