Why Should You Go Solar?
Well, other than the fact that solar power makes you cool, there are lots of good reasons!
By harnessing the power of the sun, all Maine communities in Hancock, Penobscot County, Waldo and Washington counties can produce their own pollution-free reliable electricity. Technological advances, plus generous governmental solar assistance in the form of tax credits and installation rebates, make your investment in solar power economically feasible and very attractive. The need for reliable power, and the growing urgency to reduce the use of fossil fuels make renewable solar energy systems an increasingly rewarding way for you to generate your own electrical power.
Exciting new solar technology makes it possible for home and business owners to have dependable electrical power from renewable sources. Mass production has significantly reduced the price of renewable energy systems and their components. Solar systems with battery-based backup power can ensure reliable power even when the utility grid is down.
The use of renewable sources such as the sun increases our energy self-sufficiency and fosters economic and national security. As more families, individuals and businesses generate their own renewable electricity, together we can reduce pollution, provide more electricity for all to use, all while reducing the use of fossil fuels, and helping to make the electricity on the grid "greener".
Deregulation has created an atmosphere of change in the United States. We are experiencing higher electricity rates and electricity shortages. However, laws usually referred to as "net metering" allow solar-energy-system-owners to feed their excess generated electricity back to the utility. The system owner receives a credit or payment for renewable energy-generated electricity fed into the grid. In other words, you pay only for the net electricity you consume -- the amount of electricity you take from the utility minus the amount you generate and feed back from your solar system.
With a solar electric system, you can provide yourself with protection from the rising prices of fuel, because your system's fuel is the sun. Additionally, state, local and federal tax incentives and solar rebates make obtaining a system more economical.
