SOLAR ELECTRIC

Solar electric uses photovoltaic (PV) cells to generate electricity directly from sunlight. An inverter converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels, into alternating current (AC) electricity and feeds it into the breaker box panel at the required voltage. When the solar panels are producing energy, your electric meter is running backwards, and the utility company gives you a credit on your bill. At night, when the solar panels are not producing energy, your meter runs forward, and you are being charged for energy.  The PV panels are typically placed onto a rooftop, patio cover, or ground mounted area that gets full sun.

SOLAR HOT WATER

Solar hot water is created when water is circulated through pipes inside a panel that is heated up by the sun. There can be different types of tubing inside the panel, including copper, evacuated tube, and plastic. Copper and evacuated tube panels are typically used for household solar hot water, while plastic tubing is used for solar pool and spa heating. After the water is heated up from the panel, the heated water is fed to the hot water boiler, which causes it to work less hard to heat the water to desired temps, thus saving energy and money. Solar hot water panels are usually mounted on the roof or ground, and can be used for household hot water, radiant floor heating, and pool and spa heating.

SOLAR TAX CREDIT

The residential solar tax credit allows the homeowner to apply the credit to their personal income taxes. This credit is used when the homeowner purchases a solar system outright, and has it installed on their home. The residential tax credit is equal to 30 percent of cost of the solar system, that has commenced construction through 2019. The tax credit steps down in future years, and after 2023, it will drop to zero.
