Solar panels nowadays are becoming common devices in industries, factories buildings and homes. And why should it not be since tapping the sun’s indigenous energy is the most practical thing to do in these days of energy crises.

Does it cost very much to change into solar energy system in your electricity needs? How much do these solar-electricity systems really cost? An initial estimate on an average size solar-electric system might come in at $20,000 to $40,000 — or more. But, an average American household can expect to spend more than $100,000 over the next 25 years on electricity. Putting up a solar-electric system is like buying that electricity in advance, and depending on the details of your situation, making that investment now can save you a lot of money in the future. It also creates immediate convertible assets and increases the value of your home, which can help offset that dismay at the high cost. And, there is a new federal tax credit; these renewable energy incentives give you a 30 percent tax credit for the price of the panels. You can also save as much as 50 percent if your state offers additional incentives.

But do you really need solar panels? Are they right for your home?

Solar panels are designed to reduce your energy bills. Bear in mind, though, that solar power panels cannot power your entire home. They are designed to cut down your energy consumption during peak times, as in the middle of the summer or winter. Solar panels can heat water, whether you use them by themselves, or with a traditional water heater.

Solar panels can give you the comfort you need, without paying high energy costs. You can also use solar panels to generate electricity. One square foot of panels will generate one kilowatt of electricity. When you want the panels to power some equipment or devices, like various appliances or your air conditioner, you can connect them directly to the solar power wiring system.

When you decide to install solar power, you have to do your homework. There is so much planning involved in solar power installations. The panels can go in a variety of places – they can be mounted on the roof, on the ground, or on new or existing trellises. The contractor will have to figure out which place is best for you. The solar panels need to be installed beautifully, and, of course, where there is maximum sun exposure. In fact, your solar panels can even be mounted on tracking devices, so that they can follow the sun as it moves in the sky.

A 100 watt solar panel should be big enough if you want to use solar energy in your home but it is not the largest solar panel unit. There is a major difference in efficiency level depending on which type of solar panel you buy. Make an informed decision so you get the best product and your money’s worth.
