Solar Made Simple


1.Solar energy saves Costs, I.E, Lower Energy Costs and Lower Bills
The most obvious financial benefit of solar power is that it can lower your utility bills. Any power you produce yourself through your solar panels is power that you don’t have to purchase from your local utility. When your system produces more power than you’re using, that power is sent back to the grid, which can in turn give you a credit from your local power supplier. Or, if you install energy storage at the same time, you can store your unused solar energy in a battery for use when the sun goes down. Win-win situation!

2. A Cleaner Environment and More Sustainable Future
Ensuring a cleaner and more sustainable future for generations to come is priceless. Solar energy is one of the cleanest forms of energy on the planet. With warranties available for up to 25-years and an active production life as high as 40-50 years, your clean energy solar investment is one that will benefit your children and grandchildren alike.

If you’ve been thinking about making the switch to solar, now is the time to act! Here’s your road to saving money and getting the best return on your investment. Contact one of our qualified solar integrators to start your solar project today!

1.You can keep the lights on when the grid goes down
Generating your own solar power can give you the freedom to keep the lights on if there’s a disruption in power. Residential solar energy systems paired with battery storage—generally called solar-plus-storage systems—provide power regardless of the weather or the time of day without having to rely on backup power from the grid. As battery technology improves and financial incentives for energy storage go into effect, deciding to invest in battery storage makes sense for more households across the nation.

2. Solar will often increase the value of your home
Buying a solar energy system will likely increase your home’s value. Studies have found that solar photovoltaic panels are viewed as upgrades, just like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, and home buyers across the country have been willing to pay a premium for a home with an average-sized solar array.

3. Solar systems work in a variety of climates. Solar panels only need one thing to generate electricity — sunshine! Even in seasons when there are fewer hours of daylight, there is still a sufficient amount to power the average African home. That makes solar viable even in areas like Limuru and Kijabe that have colder temperatures in the cold season. We deal I’m latest style monocrystalline solar panels to make sure our systems perform well, regardless of climate or weather.

What Is an Off-Grid Solar System?
Off-grid solar systems can generate your home or business’ electrical needs without relying on the electrical grid. To go completely off-grid, you’ll need a system that is large enough to support your home’s energy consumption needs, along with a battery to store the energy and a solar charge controller that can help smooth out energy production and usage so that the battery doesn’t become overwhelmed quickly. If you live in a cold or particularly cloudy environment, there’s a chance you might even need a backup plan as well, like using wind power to harness additional energy.

An off-grid solar system pulls energy from the sun and its rays through solar panels, which most often are mounted to the roof of a home or cabin or RV.

The energy the panels collect is then routed to a battery that stores the energy until you need it, when an inverter converts it into electricity. All this allows you to run your home without having to rely on your town or city’s electrical grid. So, yes, If you are intent on solely relying on your own sources of energy, solar is one of the best ways to go.

One of the main reasons people go solar is to lower their electric bills. The thought is: If your solar panels generate more electricity than your home uses, you wouldn’t need any electricity from the utility grid—and that would mean you wouldn’t have an electric bill! Right?

Unfortunately, that’s not how electricity bills work, especially when you consider your daily energy usage habits and required fees from the utility company. This post will explain why you will still have an electric bill after installing solar panels, but also how solar energy can still help you save on your overall energy costs.

1. Cloudy Days & Nights
The main reason is simple: Your solar panels need the sun to generate electricity.

Not only is it not sunny every day of the year, but the sun goes down every single night. In other words, unless you plan to never use electricity at night or on stormy days, your home will still need to use electricity from the utility grid. Thus, the average homeowner will still get an electricity bill each month, even if their solar panels produce electricity at maximum efficiency.

Going solar while still being connected to the grid means getting the best of both worlds: solar when it’s available, and additional energy when you need it.

2. Utility Service Charges
Since most people still want to use electricity in their homes, even if their solar panels aren’t producing it, the vast majority of residential solar panel systems are connected to the utility grid. Known as being “grid-tied,” this means your home can draw electricity from the grid when its solar panels don’t produce enough electricity.

Being connected to the utility grid means you will receive a bill from that utility, even if you literally only used electricity generated by your solar array. Your bill includes various utility service charges on top of electricity prices, and some are charged regardless of how much electricity you use.

The actual fees and amounts depend on your local utility company, but can include:

Customer Service Charge: Covers costs related to meter reading, account maintenance, billing, customer service, and general utility operations.
Distribution Charge: A charge for building and maintaining the electricity distribution system, including transformer stations, and overhead and underground power lines.
Transmission Charge: Covers the cost of high voltage transmitters used to carry electricity from the generating station to your home.

3. Lack of Solar Battery Storage
When you have a solar energy system on your home, there can be times when you will generate more electricity than your home needs, especially during peak sun hours. If you have solar battery storage installed, you could save that excess energy production and use it when the sun goes down.

However, even if you have battery storage, you’ll still typically want to stay connected to the grid. Having enough battery storage available to power your home for extended periods of time can be expensive. It’s usually better to have some battery power ready for typical use, with the grid still available as a backup in case you need even more power.

If you don’t have a solar battery storage system installed, you won’t be able to use that extra energy at night, which means you’ll have to draw it from the utility grid. And that means you’ll get charged for that usage.
