Solar Panels in Metro Vancouver
Benefits of Residential Solar Panels
The Solar-Panel Effect
An interesting thing happens to people when they install solar panels on their roofs; it saves them a lot of money as they use less power, if any, from the grid. When producing your own solar power, people also often become more mindful of how they use power, and start to conserve more. It’s not unusual for people to use 20 to 30% less electricity. In the cost analysis below, we’ll show you how this can play out to increase your return on investment (we use a conservative solar effect of 10% on average). You’ll discover that installing solar panels on your home is an efficient energy-saving tool that will put more money back in your pocket, and even increase the value of your home.
Moving Towards Energy Independence in Vancouver with Solar Power
Producing your own power feels great. You will be in control of one of the greatest expenses of your home. If you choose to go 100% solar, say goodbye to the electric company forever!
Cooler in the Summer with Solar Energy
When Penfolds professionally installs solar panels on your roof, it will cool the inside of your home by up to 5 degrees Fahrenheit (2.8 degree Celsius) in the summer. As part of their peer-reviewed study, researchers at UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering determined, using thermal imaging, that during the day a building’s ceiling was 5 degrees Fahrenheit cooler when solar panels were used compared to standard roof shingles.
You’ll appreciate this cooling effect in the summer, making it more comfortable sleeping at night, and if you run air conditioning, you’ll save even more money.
Environmental Benefits of Home Solar Panels
Solar is the cleanest, most plentiful form of renewable energy, with no negative impact on birds, fish or future generations. Power generation in B.C. is still 10 to 15% based on fossil fuels, so going solar will make your home carbon neutral. Much of BC’s electricity is generated from hydro generators, and with our ever-increasing demand for electricity more hydro stations will be required. This is a huge production cost which is often passed on to consumers through increased hydro electricity rates.
A Penfolds solar panel system is a great investment allowing you to save money and reduce your carbon footprint!
