Home Solar Rockford: What, Where, and How?
2020 will be a massive year for solar power system installations because net metering laws are still in place in most states. (Net metering gives you retail value for excess electricity your solar energy system produces). It is also the last year you can claim the full 30% federal tax credit on a solar system.
If you have any inkling to go solar Rockford to reduce your utility bill, then 2020 is the time to do it. This page explains the three different types of solar panel systems, shows you where you can compare these systems, and tells you the websites you can use to find the best deals available. In short, we will make you an expert on solar in only a few minutes so you can negotiate on an even footing with solar companies to reduce your upfront costs.
What is a Grid-Tied Solar Power System?
The most common type of solar Rockford energy system for homes are grid-connected (or grid-tied) solar systems. These systems are simply solar panels on your roof and an inverter to convert the DC power made by the solar panels to AC power (the type of power your home uses). The system is connected to the utility company grid through your meter box and a special solar meter.
What is a Hybrid Solar System?
A hybrid solar Rockford system is a grid-tied solar system that also has a solar battery for energy storage. These can give the best of both worlds because you can store excess energy in a battery for backup power during a blackout, or to use during expensive evening peak electricity pricing hours. The advantage of still having the grid connection is that you don’t need to 100% rely on your solar and battery. This means you can have a smaller and cheaper energy storage system compared to the same home that is completely off the public grid system.
Why Time-of-Use Electricity Billing May Make Solar Energy Storage for Solar Panels Viable?
Time-of-use electricity billing is becoming mandatory for customers of investor-owned utilities in California in 2019. This trend is likely to spread as administrators seek to reduce use of the electricity grid in peak times.
Time-based controls allow you to charge the battery in off-peak times and use this power in peak times. This is an added bonus that you get if you have a hybrid system. The economic value of this functionality depends on how big the difference is between peak and off-peak electricity rates. If the difference is 10 cents per kWh and the home battery can store 13.5 kWh of power, then this is a possible return of $1.35 per day or almost $500 per year.
Whilst this alone doesn’t justify the cost of spending $7,000 on solar battery storage — the device installed is now around $10,000 but is eligible for the 30% federal solar tax credit — it might in the future.
