Solar panel systems are one of the most popular methods to help homeowners save money on their utility bills. Solar panels are installed on the roof of a home so that they have the prime location to gather as much of the sun’s rays as possible. These rays then go through a converter that is able to turn the rays into useable energy. Since the sun’s rays are free and plentiful, a homeowner who installs a solar panel system on their roof can expect to see substantial energy savings. Solar panels can be placed on almost any type of roofing material and can use as little as 300 – 600 square feet of roof space, although the more panels installed, the more energy that is produced.
A resident from Prescott Valley, Arizona was looking for an affordable way to help reduce her utility bills. It seemed her utility bills were increasing every month, she shared with us, so she decided to contact our Harmon Solar office to discuss having a solar power system installed on her Prescott Valley home. We were able to go to her house and evaluate her roof and help her determine what size and type of system would work best for her. We provided her with an estimate for what the total solar panel cost would be. She agreed with our quote and the installation began. We were able to put solar panels on 750 square feet of her S-tile roof. This was enough to generate an estimated 15,600 kilowatt hours per year and would provide her with about $1,950 in energy savings every year. The purchase price for the solar panels and installation was $38,495, but after incentives, rebates and tax credits her actual cost was $16,782.
