Solar PV (photovoltaic) is a great way to become energy independent and become economically and environmentally efficient at the same time. You can lease or you can own your solar power. If you lease, you choose how little or much money you put down to start saving with your first electric bill. Since you only pay for the power and not the solar panels, many solar leases are cash flow positive in the very first year. If you own, you pick how we pay you top value for your Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) and how you’ll finance your investment. You’ll earn even more over time since you’ll get to take advantage of all the available solar incentives yourself. There are three critical factors that will determine how much of your roof space is available for your solar panel system: Orientation, Shading and Roof Structure. The amount of energy generated from solar panels depends on the size of the system. The solar panel system is limited by your available roof space and budget. The more solar energy your home generates, the greater the return on your investment, the greater the environmental impact and the more joy and pride you will feel each time you see a beautifully sunny day.
