Your new solar system will serve as the most cost-effective way to power your home and keep it cool all year long. In sunny Palm Beach County, you can expect your solar panels to collect plenty of power for next several decades. The cost to purchase and install a solar system can be expensive, but because of how efficient solar energy is and how long the system lasts, you can definitely expect to receive a valuable return on your investment. Here’s a guide to selecting, sizing and maintaining your new solar system.
Selecting: The exact location of your home, its design and your energy needs will determine what solar system you choose. You may need to contact your neighborhood association to make sure you are permitted to install solar modules in the location you have in mind.
Sizing: Elements required to help you decide how large of a system you need include the type of collectors, their efficiency, and how much energy you need. It’s usually most economical to size your system to provide 40 to 80 percent of your energy needs. That way, you can remain tied to the grid so you have power at night or during overcast weather. You will still receive a return on your investment when sizing a solar system this way.
Maintaining: It will be easiest to maintain your system if it is built from durable components and installed correctly. You are responsible for maintaining your own solar system to optimize its capabilities and avoid breakdowns. While different systems have slightly different maintenance requirements, you should expect to spend eight to 16 hours per year maintaining the solar system. A great way to keep on top of the needed maintenance is to create a calendar with tasks recommended by the manufacturer and installer.
