A lot of folks think solar panels are a “West Coast” thing or an alternative energy source used by wealthy people. This is far from the truth as millions of everyday people from all over the country have installed solar panels in their homes. Homeowners are cutting their power bills and lessening their carbon footprint thanks to solar panels. Since the state South Carolina offers such generous tax credits to those who embrace alternative energy, it’s no wonder there are thousands of homes in the Palmetto state who use solar panels.
One family in Charleston, SC took advantage of multiple technologies. They installed a 5kW PV solar panel kit for electricity and a collector thermal system for hot water. They also replaced their hot water tank with a new, more efficient model. The family’s power bill was cut in half in a year over year comparison, from $220 down to $105. Using solar panels in your home makes utilities costs on your household budget a controllable item and rather than a fixed cost.
Another Charleston, SC homeowner installed a 3.78kw solar panel system using Suniva 270w modules with an SMA inverter on the back of their home. The system is not metered, allowing the excess of solar power from the system to be transferred onto the grid so the customer can sell back to the utility company. Never thought you could save money on your power bill by being a “power broker”? Well, anyone can. It’s that simple and easy.
