Solar energy has benefits both for the bank account and for your home. The price of solar is always falling, and installing solar on the house will almost always save you money over the life of the installation. On top of this, developing solar energy doesn't contaminate or release fossil fuels, which means you will dramatically decrease the environmental effect by installing solar.

A common way for property owners to take advantage of solar energy is with a photovoltaic (PV) solar system. With a solar PV system, solar panels convert sunlight right into electricity that can be used immediately, stored in a solar battery, or sent to the electric grid for credits on your electric bill. Solar panels convert solar energy into usable electricity through a process known as the photovoltaic effect. Incoming sunlight strikes a semiconductor material (typically silicon) and knocks electrons loose, setting them in motion and generating an electric current that can be captured with wiring.

Solar Panels consist of photovoltaic cells, the photovoltaic cells that make up the solar panels very rarely break down. Even if they do, our solar panels come with a 25-year warranty, which means that once you add solar panels to your commercial or residential building, you will generate your own clean electricity for at least 25 years or more, from a system that is just as functional and probably more reliable than the utility company.

Solar power panels are rapidly becoming mainstream alternative energy sources in America. You likely heard that Fortune 500 companies such as Walmart and Intel are converting many of their buildings to solar energy. At first glance, you might not think that's affordable for small or medium-sized houses but think again. Solar panels have dropped in price and now offer excellent benefits to homes like yours.

The best way for individual property owners to save money with solar energy is to install a home solar photovoltaic system. To find the right system for the right price, you should reach out or submit a request with Universal Contracting & Solar.
