Homeowners Receive Tax Credits and Rebates Installing Los Angeles Solar Panels

With the downturn in the economy, photovoltaic panels (solar panels) are once again quickly rising in popularity. With the ability to generate clean power by harnessing sunlight and converting it into electricity, Los Angeles solar panels allow homeowners to remove themselves completely from the power grid. Reducing dependency on using non-renewable fossil fuels helps the environment while eliminating utility bills.

Local, state and federal government agencies are working hard to encourage homeowners to install arrays of solar panels on their homes. Offering a variety of incentives from tax credits to rebates, these agencies want to make it easy for families to reduce the costs of using power in their homes.

Solar panels work well at creating a more energy efficient home. Recent advancement in solar technology makes it easier to install enough Los Angeles solar panels on the rooftop to generate all the power the home requires. The system has no moving parts and is designed to last for decades with little to no maintenance required.

For those individuals that do not want to change their system completely, it is easy to install Los Angeles solar panels on the rooftop to generate power and simply sell the energy to the local utility company for cash or credit on the home’s electric bill.

Homeowners can determine the size of Los Angeles solar panels system they need by studying their electric bill. They simply need to calculate how many kilowatt-hours (KWh) are used each day, month and year. The electrical output of a Verengo Solar panel is rated that a 100-watt panel generates 100 watts of electrical energy per hour, when the rays of the sun are at optimum level. Additionally, most manufacturers build solar panels that will yield 10 watts of electricity per 1 square foot of solar photovoltaic panel during bright sunshine.

Manufacturers craft three different types of solar panels, which varies in efficiency. Panels crafted using Mono-crystalline are generally a single large solar cell. Overall, they are significantly smaller than a polycrystalline panel. Amorphous solar panels (thin-film) are very large, but have their own significant benefits including flexibility, greater efficiency, versatility and a lower cost. Poly-crystalline panels are actually a group of many small cells, which are less efficient and lower in cost than Mono-crystalline.

Los Angeles solar panels offer a variety of installation methods including grid-type systems, which allow the homeowner to grow the size of their Solar panel array as they can afford it.
