Solar Electricity for Homeowners

Over the last 10 years, the cost of a
solar electric system has dropped dramatically. In 2006, approximately 300,000 homes had solar panels. In 2016, the number of homes with rooftop solar is expected to reach 1,000,000 and this growth is expected to continue as system prices decline. In 2003, the average cost per watt for solar power was $9. Today the national average cost per watt is $3.79.

Commercial & Government Solar Systems

Businesses, manufacturers and municipalities are large consumers of electricity. That’s why Trusted Energy designs systems that take into account their special needs. Our solar PV arrays can provide a sustainable solution for reducing or potentially eliminating electric usage.


How Solar Works

 

Solar electric (Photovoltaics or PV) produces electricity from sunlight. A typical home solar electric system consists of PV cells connected together in panels. Panels are installed side-by-side on a homeowners roof to form an array.When sunlight shines on the panels the array is producing direct current (DC) solar energy. The electricity flows from the array through a metallic conduit down to an inverter. The inverter changes DC voltage to the alternating current (AC) for the household electric circuit powering wall outlets and all AC appliances.

Solar PV systems offer homeowners a renewable and sustainable energy solution to off set electrical usage. Depending on the size of your solar system, you can potentially achieve 100% of your homes electricity needs or significantly reduce your monthly electric bill.Another great feature of PV is its ability to feed excess power back to the power grid thereby accumulating credit from your utility company. Essentially your solar system is a mini-power plant that will produce reliable energy for decades to come.
