We want you to know everything there is to owning a rooftop solar plant and we wish to be as transparent as possible during this process.
The electricity that you get from your local electricity provider is generated through coal or natural gas combustion which releases harmful emissions that are causing climate change. What's more, from supply to distribution there are 21% losses in transmission. Solar is completely clean; the source is on the rooftop of your home.
You solar system is connected to the grid and generates electricity when it's cloudy outside and even if there is a storm. During morning and afternoon hours, when most people are at work, your system will produce more electricity than your house is using. The excess electricity is pushed back to the grid. This causes your electricity meter to be rolled backwards. In the evening, when the sun is down, you will be using the credited energy from the meter spinning backwards. These credits expire at the end of the year, when your utility company pays you for the extra credits.
Your Solar Power Plant is not a dead investment or a liability like your car and requires no maintenance. With Solar, you save money everyday and recover the cost of the entire system in five to seven years. This means that you get to enjoy free energy for the rest of the thirteen to fifteen years. Isn’t that just awesome?
Utility providers such as BSES often raise energy costs 5-7% annually. The cost of your solar plant is fixed when you purchase the system for the life of the system. These are few of the hidden savings which you did not think about.
Any excess solar energy your system produces will be pushed back into the grid and credited to your next month's utility bill. At the end of the year, if you have consumed fewer energy units than you generated, your utility company will pay you for any excess energy credits you have leftover!
The future of energy is in renewable and clean energy. By switching to solar now, you can assure that your future generations will have a better future live longer and breathe a cleaner air.
