Solar Panel Installation - Cut Your Electric Bills
Highlands Energy Services is a building performance contractor that specializes in energy efficiency. We work with PG&E as well as other utility providers to help you lower your total energy costs. In order to create a more sustainable community it is important that we develop better energy usage practices in our businesses and our homes. One of the best way to do this is to install solar panels. We have already saved California residents thousands of dollars in revenue that can be reinvested back into the places where it is needed most.
Why Install Solar Panels?
One of the best ways to save money on utilities is to invest in solar panels and harvesting your own energy from the sun, instead of completely relying on an energy company for all of your energy consumption. We will work with you to find out your energy requirements and other needs in order to find the best solar paneling option for you.
The Pros and Cons of Installing Solar Panels
- Harvesting your own energy from the sun can create huge savings on your energy bill.
- Installing solar panels may make you eligible for tax credits from the federal and state government.
- Once installed, Solar Panels require little maintenance.
- Solar energy is a renewable resource. Unlike coal and fossil fuels, we can never run out of solar energy.
- Solar Panels are environmentally friendly, and harvesting solar power does not create pollution, although there are some emissions made during the manufacturing process.
- The initial cost of installing solar panels can be high. However, with the monthly savings in energy costs, they can pay themselves off in a short amount of time, and provide savings for years to come.
- Solar energy cannot be harvested at night, or during days with cloud-cover. However, it is possible to store excess energy created while the sun is out, which can then be used when it is not.
- Solar panels take up space. However, solar panels are typically installed on roofs, so space is rarely an issue, especially on larger buildings.
