Solar Power

Solar power is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. With the use of solar power, you can eliminate some of the electric bill. There are Government incentives, tax credits, and rebates available.

How Solar Works

Photons from the sun are attracted to and absorbed by solar panels, the solar cells convert sunlight into DC electricity. The panel is then wired to an inverter which changes DC electricity to AC electricity to supply your household needs. Any excess of energy that is not used is sent back into the grid or utility company and bought back to be banked. This essentially means that you could get written a check for the excess power that your home created. The sun is the most abundant source of energy available on earth. The sun generates an amount of energy so vast and clean, why we have not tapped into this source on a large scale earlier is inconceivable. It is completely clean, found in huge abundance in our own backyards, and FREE.

Whole House Fans, Gable fans, and Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans can keep your house a few degrees cooler in the summer. Whole house fans are an inexpensive alternative that will reduce your electric bill during the hot summer months. Gable fans take all of the hot air out of the attic area to give the hot air in your house somewhere to go. These can also keep your house cool in the summer.

Fluorescent Lighting

Some of the lesser known energy savers include changing out light bulbs from incandescent to fluorescent. Fluorescent light uses 1/3 of the power of an incandescent light while giving off just as much, if not more light.
