Why Switch To Solar?
Solar power is the future of renewable energy for homes and businesses, especially those in sunny areas like western Texas and southeastern New Mexico. With the cost of traditional energy constantly on the rise, and approximately 280 days of sunshine per year in this region of the U.S., solar energy systems are now more practical than ever. In fact, solar panels are a worthwhile investment that continues to pay for itself over time, as they can significantly reduce or completely eliminate your energy bills — and your reliance on utility companies.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels contain dozens of photovoltaic cells that harness the sun’s energy and store it in the form of direct current (DC) electricity. Then, this free energy is converted into alternating current (AC) electricity, the kind that can be used to power the appliances, fixtures, and air conditioning unit in your home or business. And the best part is, it’s free, plentiful, and automatic — you don’t have to do anything once the initial solar panel installation is complete!
Given that we live in a warm climate with an abundance of sunlight, solar energy systems in areas like El Paso, Roswell, Hobbs, and Carlsbad often produce more free energy than is needed, which can then be exported to the solar energy grid for others to use. Conversely, if for some reason your commercial or residential solar panels aren’t providing enough energy to match your consumption levels, the system will automatically tap into the excess energy stored in the grid. This process is incredibly efficient, allowing you to get the most out of your solar power system, even on cloudy days.
Benefits Of Solar Energy
There are endless benefits of solar panels for homes and businesses, beginning with the fact that they substantially reduce electric bills, if not eliminate them altogether. In New Mexico alone, residential electricity bills range from $75 to $100 per month, depending on the size of the structure, the energy efficiency of appliances and fixtures, air conditioner use, and the demand for natural resources (electricity, natural gas, and oil), among many other factors. Just imagine how much money you could save each month by switching to a free, renewable energy source that renders you independent from utility companies and fluctuating energy costs.
But that’s not all — there are federal and state incentives, too. The main reason why home and business owners hesitate to switch to solar power is the upfront cost of solar panels, which can get pricey depending on your building size and energy consumption. However, the federal government offers a 30-percent rebate on solar panel installations for homes and businesses across the nation, and the Texas and New Mexico state governments also offer solar tax credits. When combined with the significant energy savings from low or non-existent energy bills, these government incentives make purchasing solar panels a smart move.
