Solar Panels: Maryland Homes Powered by the Sun
Installing solar panels is the perfect solution for homeowner’s looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Solar panels are an affordable, clean, and green source of energy for homes large and small.
At Renewable Energy Corporation, we install solar panel systems of all sizes for homeowners throughout Maryland; Washington, D.C.; and parts of Virginia and southern Pennsylvania. We pride ourselves on using only well-constructed, long-lasting, American-made solar products. Our technicians are thoroughly trained to ensure all systems are installed properly, and everyone at Renewable Energy Corporation is 100-percent dedicated to customer service and satisfaction.
Why Solar Panels?
In addition to being a green technology, solar or photovoltaic panels decrease your home’s dependency on the main energy grid, and in turn your power bill. In fact, panels can produce more energy than your house needs. Excess electricity is then sent back into the power grid, literally turning your electric meter backwards and decreasing your bill.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar panels are made up of many solar cells that have been joined together. These cells are made using materials that have a photoelectric effect, which means that they produce electricity when they’re struck by photons (i.e. light). Solar cells capture the electricity produced when the photoelectric materials are hit by sunlight, and send that electricity to an inverter. This inverter then transforms the electricity from direct current (DC) into a form that can be used in your home: alternating current electricity (AC). In most cases, the system also includes batteries which store excess power until you need it.
How Much Do Solar Panels Cost?
The cost of solar panels has gone down significantly in the past few years, and there are also many programs in place to help homeowners get the system in place. For example, solar leasing allows homeowners to get the benefits of a solar panel system without having to purchase it upfront. Tax credits and other incentives are also available in many cases.
The cost of a solar panel system depends on many factors, especially the size of the system. More panels mean a higher cost, but also more energy produced. Because each home has different energy needs, the best way to find out the cost of a solar power system is to get a professional estimate.
