Solar Panel Systems Are a Smart Choice For Connecticut Residents
More Connecticotians than ever are choosing to invest in solar systems to power their homes. The recent uptick in solar installations is hardly a surprise, given the high cost of electricity in Connecticut and excellent incentives that allow homeowners to install a solar system with minimal upfront cost.
In 2017, Connecticut households spent an average of $139.97 per month on electricity. Energy costs in Connecticut are higher than the rest of New England and amongst the highest in the United States. Electricity prices are not expected to improve either. Industry experts are warning residents of Connecticut to prepare for sharp increases in energy costs in the next decade.
In a plan to offset the rising cost of electricity, Connecticut lawmakers have created a number of incentives to help homeowners control their energy costs by going solar. Solar panels aren’t just for the wealthy either – there are several options available that allow you to get solar panels installed on your home for $0 out of pocket. At Momentum Solar, we are here to help you navigate these incentives and make your transition to renewable solar energy as simple as possible.
How Solar Power Systems Work
- For the average household, solar panel systems hold an appeal that extends beyond just cost savings. After all, it’s pretty exciting to think about generating the energy you need to power your home right from your home. Unlike other forms of renewable energy, there are no moving parts, making the systems completely silent. Modern installations allows for solar systems to be installed discretely, without being an eyesore.
- Most of us are now familiar with the sight of solar panels installed atop of homes and businesses. What happens inside of these panels? It’s remarkably simple, actually! The technical term for these panels is “photovoltaic panels” or PV panels for short. When sun hits PV panels, the cells on the panels convert the light into DC electricity.
- Household appliances cannot use DC energy, so it must be converted to AC electricity before it can be used. That’s why all residential solar panel systems contain an inverter. DC energy flows into the inver
