“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
Thomas Edison, 1931
If Edison were alive today, he’d be more than pleased with the progress of the solar energy industry. The technology has matured, and society is embracing this renewable form of energy. In a way, Edison’s enthusiastic statement has become a prediction: it is the diminishing supply of fossil fuels coupled with the negative environmental impact of their use that is punctuating solar’s value and importance as an energy source.
Powering your home or business with solar electricity is a feasible choice for anyone hoping to reduce energy costs. Electric rates are expected to double in the next 10 years, and installing a solar electric system essentially fixes the price of power at the cost of investment. Going solar safeguards your home or business from the rising cost of energy.
For those interested in off-grid power, a solar electric system is a valuable cornerstone for the self-sufficient lifestyle. Having no electric bill and knowing where your power comes from is very satisfying!
Solar power reliably fulfills energy needs, whether it is an off-grid or a grid-tie system. With state and federal renewable energy incentives off-setting a significant portion of the cost of a solar system, generating your own power is an obtainable goal.
Solartech offers design, installation, and service of off-grid and grid-tie solar electric systems. We work with both residential and commercial clients to meet their individual solar power needs.
