Solar Panels in Metro Vancouver
Benefits of Residential Solar Panels
The Solar-Panel Effect
An interesting thing happens to most people when they install Vancouver solar panels on their roofs, and it saves them a lot of money: they use less power. Because you produce your own solar power right on your roof, most people 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. Later on in the cost analysis 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 for the home is an efficient and energy-saving tool that will put more money back in your pocket.
Towards Energy Independence in Vancouver with Solar Power
Producing your own power feels great. You will be more 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. But even producing a big chunk of your electricity feels great.
Cooler in the Summer with Solar Energy
When Penfolds professionally installs solar panels on your home roof, it will cool the inside of your building by up to 5 degrees F 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 under solar panels than under an exposed roof.
You’ll appreciate this cooling effect in the summer, making it much better to sleep at night, and if you run air conditioning, you’ll save even more money.
Environmental Benefits of Home Solar Panels
We saved the best for last. 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.
A Penfolds solar system is a great investment, is fun, and will make you sleep better knowing that you are doing the right thing. Want to learn more?
