Solar energy has technically been around for hundreds of thousands of years. The earliest ancient civilizations made use of the sun for a variety of purposes from warming food and water to making pottery and drying clothes. The sun provides free energy that can be captured and turned into a viable energy source for water heaters and for powering electrical systems in homes and businesses. Solar Energy Companies in Hawaii can help you with a solar energy plan to suit your needs. The following will discuss services for solar hot water and solar electric.
Solar Water Heating Systems
Solar water heating systems are efficient, effective, and an affordable way to start using solar power in your home. These systems need to be properly installed and set up in order to function efficiently. The right size of the system, the appropriate components, and the insulation used for the plumbing pipes are also part of making sure your solar water heating system will provide you with hot water when you need it. This is not a do-it-yourself project for the average homeowner. It requires the experience, expertise, and equipment that professional services can provide. Choosing the right contractor ensures the design, elements, plumbing pipes, and other aspects of these systems are covered for efficient operation. You can start saving money on your utility bills with a solar water heating system.
Solar Electric Systems
Solar electric systems are also referred to as photo-voltaic systems. This type of project is a rather large undertaking that should be handled by experts in the solar electric installation industry. Solar Energy Companies in Hawaii are able to provide competitive and affordable pricing due to the recent drop in photo-voltaic (PV) prices. That means now is a good time to jump on the solar bandwagon with other people turning to green energy sources for powering their homes. You can save money on your electric bill and enjoy the free energy resource the sun provides.
