A photovoltaic solar panel works by collecting the rays from the sun and converting them into electricity that can be used in your home. The solar panels are placed on the roof of your house, and they can be installed on almost any type of roof. The average house needs about 300 to 600 square feet of panels to generate enough electricity to be useful for your house. Since the sun’s rays are free, you will be able to save on utility bills almost instantly. Usually solar power is used as a primary electrical source, and your current electric provider is used as a secondary or backup source.
A Scottsdale, Arizona resident contacted our Harmon Solar office, to get a free estimate on putting a solar panel system on his house. We were able to go to his house, explain the process to him, and provide him with an appropriate quote. We recommended that he have 785 square feet of photovoltaic solar panels on his cement tile roof. We provided him with a $45,000 quote for the total solar panel cost of the project. The homeowner was happy with our bid, and we continued on with the project. Upon completion of the project, we were able to estimate the amount of energy generated from the solar panels to be 17,000 kilowatts hours per year, for an estimated $2,125 savings on his utility bills per year.
