Converting to Solar Energy to Power your Home

Verengo Solar is Southern California’s leader in residential solar panel installations. They have consistently earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. To date, the systems they have installed have saved homeowners in excess of 255 million dollars in energy costs and helped reduce an enormous amount of carbon emissions in the environment.

Solar systems work by harnessing the sun’s heat and light energy through solar panels. Solar panels collect sunlight during the day and convert it to useable electricity. The systems are equipped with batteries that store the power that is not used during the day. That stored power can then be used at night and when no sunlight is available. Some utility companies will purchase excess solar power from homeowners through a credit on their electric bill. This can result in zero or almost zero utility charges every month if the homeowner decides to stay connected to electric as a backup to their solar power system.

Solar power systems emit no pollution, have no smell, run silently and require very little maintenance. This means that, as a result of more and more homeowners using solar energy, less greenhouse gasses are being dumped into the environment. Electric companies still use fossil fuels to produce electricity. Fossil fuel is not only expensive, and getting more expensive everyday, it releases greenhouse gases and causes acid rain. It is also believed that it contributes to global warming.

Homeowners are converting to solar power because it creates an efficient, renewable source of energy that does not cause pollution. In addition, solar use lowers or eliminates their energy bills. Along with lower utility bills, consumers who install solar panels can take a tax credit of 30 percent of the cost of the solar system and obtain rebates from the State of California. In addition, homeowners who install solar power can get a property tax break. While solar does increase the value of a home, it does not increase property taxes. These tax breaks, rebates and other incentives can help cover the cost of installing a new solar panel system in a home. In addition, the savings from utility bills can add up to thousands of dollars over the years.

Verengo Solar offers a lease-to-own option that lets homeowners install a complete solar power system with no money out-of-pocket. They also offer zero down financing and other options that homeowners can choose from to finance their solar panel systems.

Verengo partners with solar panels manufacturers including Suntech, Yingli Solar and LG in order to provide the best solar panel systems available to their customers. Suntech and Hingli are trusted manufacturers in over 80 countries. Verengo’s partnership with those manufacturers ensures that they can offer quality solar systems that will suit the needs of each individual homeowner and their respective budgets.

As the green movement grows, Verengo will continue to be a leader in the solar energy field by staying on top of new solar energy technology and finding ways to save homeowners money when installing a new solar system. With the federal government and the State of California willing to help homeowners with tax breaks, rebates and other incentives, there has never been a better time to convert to solar energy.
