Save Money with Solar

It’s no surprise that solar is everywhere. You can hardly go to the grocery store anymore without being approached by someone talking about solar panels, kilowatts, and inverters, but the reality is that you can save money with solar energy system. And that’s exciting!

At Bland, we install and service solar energy systems for both residential and commercial properties in Bakersfield, Fresno, and Atascadero and surrounding areas.

How Solar Energy Works

Solar energy systems, also known as photovoltaic (PV) systems, produce electricity by using solar cells to convert sunlight into direct current (DC). Photons in the sunlight hit the solar panels and are absorbed by semiconducting materials such as silicon.

As electrons are freed from the semiconducting material they create electricity. Because of the configuration of the solar cells, the electricity flows in a specific direction. An inverter or series of microinverters is installed with the PV solar system and converts the direct current to alternating current (AC) so that the electricity can be used for residential and commercial applications.

How Will I Save Money with Solar?

There are a number of ways you can save money and benefit financially from installing a solar energy system.

  • One of the main benefits of using solar energy is a lower electric bill from your utility company. It's simple, the more solar energy you generate to use, the less electricity you’ll need to purchase from a utility company. Of course there are factors which make everyone’s estimated cost-savings different, like how much energy you use, how much PV (photovoltaic) energy your system can generate, and the cost of energy through your standard utility company, but adding a solar energy system is rarely a bad move.
  • Another way you can save money through solar energy is by taking advantage of available tax credits like the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) also referred to as the Federal Solar Tax Credit while it lasts.
  • Another financial benefit of installing a solar energy system is that it may increase the value of your home depending on where you live.
