Traditional energy sources are derived from fossil or nuclear sources which will be depleted over time. Renewable energy sources such as solar are naturally occurring and theoretically inexhaustible.
With the volatility of the fuel markets and concerns about global warming, turning to renewable energy sources for your home is a natural solution.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems use solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity which can be used in the home.
The primary savings achieved with Solar PV is a significant savings on your monthly utility bills. The location of your home and number of cells has an impact on the amount of energy produced. If your system is tied into the "grid", you may actually end up selling power back to the utility! Other benefits include reducing your use of natural resources, reducing pollution and reducing waste as a by-product of energy production. The federal tax credit of up to 30% is available for solar PV systems, making this an ideal time to invest in solar technology.
Haller Enterprises installed solar panels at the Lititz Branch in April of 2011. Click below to see how much energy we have been generating since the installation.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most inexhaustible of the known energy sources. Solar radiation contains huge amounts of energy and is responsible for almost all the natural processes on earth. One way to integrate solar energy techniques into your home is with a solar water heater.
Solar collectors can actually reduce the amount of electricity or gas used for water heating up to 60 percent per year, making it an attractive alternative for homeowners who want to use a renewable energy source like the sun, and reduce their monthly energy bills.
The federal tax credit of up to 30% is also available for solar water heaters.
