With the struggling economy and higher energy costs, many homeowners are looking for ways to save on energy bills. Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are a great method to help Arizona homeowners see energy savings. PV solar panels work by collecting the sun’s rays and converting that into usable electrical power. The solar panels are usually placed on the roof of a house, where they are able to collect the most sunlight. A Solar panel system can work on almost any type of roof and take up about 300-600 square feet of space. Since the sun’s rays are free and limitless, you will be able to save on utility bills.
A Peoria, Arizona residential homeowner contacted our Harmon Solar office to inquire about energy-efficient homes. We were able to send a technician to his house to explain how a PV solar panel system would be installed and how it could help him see a reduction in his energy costs. We provided him with a quote of $40,000 for the solar panel cost to complete the entire project. The homeowner agreed and we began installation on 700 square feet off his S-tile roof. We completed the project well within budget and the homeowner was very pleased. He is now able to generate an average of 14,917 kilowatts hours per year for an estimated energy savings of $1,900 per year.
You too can see savings like this on your energy bills, by having a PV solar panel system installed on your roof. Our staff at Harmon Solar can come to your Peoria, Arizona home and answer any question you may have and provide you with a free estimate. Most homeowners choose to use their solar panels as a primary source of electric power and use their current electric service as a secondary source.
