The decision to switch from traditional energy to solar energy begins with two things – a copy of the homeowner’s electric bill and a consultation from a representative of a solar company.
The electric bill will serve as a baseline of the average consumption that the homeowner utilizes on a monthly basis. Additionally, this will serve as a determining factor in comparing solar energy consumption versus traditional energy consumption.
During the consultation, our consultant will get more details about the property, the homeowner’s goals, lifestyle, and future plans for the property. From there, our consultant will create a proposal that will clearly explain to the homeowners the benefits and incentives available should they proceed in investing in solar power. We will give an overview on what going solar would mean for the property, the homeowners, and the community in general. This will also be the time when we discuss the alternatives and benefits of purchasing or leasing.
Once the client has decided to push through with the process, the next step is to assist the client in getting approval for financing (if necessary). Contracts and additional paperworks will also be in the pipeline.
Application for the Building Permit will be processed by our engineers after conducting an initial residence assessment. Once the building permit is all set, installation of the solar energy system will begin. A timeline of 6-8 weeks is expected to cover the installation of the solar energy system. A Permission to Operate is needed before the solar power system can be switched on.
Ideally, the expense of solar will be less than or equal to what you are paying presently for the very same amount of electrical power from your utility. You will still receive two electric bills but the complete quantity of these 2 bills will typically total up to, or be less than your current energy costs.
Going solar guards you from future electrical price increases as it offers you a predictable expense monthly, and can be paid with the cash you are no longer paying the energy firm! You can save money by merely trading your energy prices for your solar expenses.
As soon as your financing is worked out, or if you spend for the solar energy system in cash, your expected costs for the power costs will simply cover the typical service fee for having the energies electric meter on your home. This is in fact simply a fraction of what it was previously. When you switch over to solar energy, you still continue to be connected to the energy due to the fact that we need their meter to make solar work. The advantage of solar energy is that you will have access to an endless supply of power whenever you need it.
When the sun emits onto a solar panel, photons from the sunlight rays are absorbed by the cells in the panel, which creates an electromagnetic field throughout the layers and sets off electrical power for distribution. The solar cells develop DC (Direct Current). However, the majority of people use A/C (Alternating Current). So, how does solar work?
Solar energy systems make use of an inverter that transforms the DC power to AC power so it can be utilized all over the house. Old solar systems make use of a standard inverter to change the current. Sunpower by NYSSF utilizes mini inverters on the back of each panel that offers a much safer, extra reliable and much better warrantied solar energy system. Microinverters are also recommended for property owners staying in the northeast where tree shade, snow, and leaves on the panels are significant factors to consider.
Mainly, the power produced by the solar panels deals with the needs in the house. If there is excess electrical power being generated, it returns to the electric grid by revolving the energies electric meter backwards, providing you 100% debt score for every Kilowatt produced.
The solar installment procedure starts with a Technical House Evaluation (THA). During this process, our solar specialist will inspect your residence – evaluate, and take pictures and sun readings of the roofing using our drone. They will inspect and take photos of the attic area and the electrical primary service panel. As soon as the pertinent information is collected, it is forwarded to the designers for the developing phase of the solar energy system. The engineers take into consideration both the electric code and building ordinance of the state and the community.
The actual setup starts by styling the rails on the roofing. The rails are affixed to the roof covering and the panels are attached to the rails. The rails are attached straight to your house’s rafters making use of stainless-steel lag screws. The materials used for installment are created from the finest products which are warrantied for 25 years. These contain labor and all aspects utilized by Sunpower by NYSSF.
The solar panels include microinverters secured to the rails that make the solar power system part of your house. All wiring and conduit are put under the solar panels to ensure that the installation is safe and will look aesthetically pleasing.
