Benefits of Going Solar

Ever wonder whether solar is the right choice for you in 2021? Solar panels for your home have been around since the 1970’s but since the Solar Investment Tax Credit was enacted in 2006, the costs of installing solar have dropped about 70%. 

Why Go Solar in 2021?

Savings: Are you getting high electric bills? By installing solar panels in your home, you rely less on the electric grid and can offset your energy using by powering your home directly from the sun. You can even select a tailored solar system based on your energy consumption listed on your electric bill.

Protect Yourself from Rising Electricity Rates: Ever notice how your electric bill seems to only get higher especially during the summer? Did you also see a big increase in your electric bill due to the 2021 Texas Winter Storm? Unlike traditional power companies calculating different factors to add to your bill, the cost of going solar is a constant fixed price so you’ll never have to worry whether next month you’ll have a surprise higher rate than usual.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint: The energy that powers the majority of homes today is generated by a mix of non-renewable resources such as coal, natural gas, petroleum and nuclear. Texas produces more electricity than any other state and about 75% of that comes directly from natural gas and coal which creates a large amount of carbon emissions. Going solar reduces your environmental impact of energy use.

Solar Panel Installation

Make your home green and lower your energy bills by installing solar panels today!

Solar panels are much more than a new and seemingly intricate wave of roofs. They are a way for homeowners to access a multitude of benefits at no utter downfalls. Solar panels not only allow you to reduce the carbon footprint on our planet, but they make you energy independent at an affordable price with lower energy bills! It’s never been easier to start saving with solar panels at McAllen Valley Roofing Co. Today’s technology allows for advanced solar panel systems to be installed into any home with fitting quality at an inexpensive price. When you’re ready to go solar, McAllen Valley Roofing Co. is here to help.

How it Works

To make it simple, solar panels soak up sunlight and convert it into usable, clean, and ultimately, renewable energy. If we dive deeper into the process, solar panels capture energy from the sun’s rays as a direct current, which is then sent into the system’s inverter. Then, the inverter converts the direct current into the electricity used to power your home, thus, powering all of your connected electronics and appliances for your daily use.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: What if there isn’t enough energy being generated to power my home? You see, solar systems are connected to the grid as well as with a net energy meter that will track exactly how much your system is generating and how much electricity you use from the grid to support it. Consequently, if you ever happen to generate more energy than you use, the electricity given by the grid to support your system will be sent back to said grid. Additionally, you will then be provided with a credit to be used when your system is later lacking generated energy to power your home. However, iIf you happen to generate less than you use, the grid will come in as a backup and power up your home to make sure your everyday needs are met. Cool, right?

Solar Panel Maintenance

Don’t let the elements best you and affect the performance of your solar panels. Let us best the elements for you and call us to have your solar panel maintenance.

Solar Panels are a set and forget type of deal in most cases, but that doesn’t mean they go without any sort of checkups. Here at McAllen Valley Roofing Co., we’re on your standby to make sure your panels are giving it their best in energy productions.

The best parts about solar panels for homeowners besides being environmentally friendly and saving money – is the infrequent, low cost maintenance. Solar panels are made with the thought in mind that there should be minimal interference. This, in turn, affects the maintenance to become infrequent and low cost. They really only need to be cleared of dust and debris every now and then, and for anything that needs quality professional attention, McAllen Valley Roofing Co., is just around the corner to help you out.

Like all other appliances, solar panels do require some sort of maintenance; however, solar panels don’t require professional help for the occasional common task. All a homeowner needs is a bit of water.

To maintain your solar panels is just to simply wash off any accumulated debris such as leaves, dust, and other obstructions that would stop the sunlight from hitting the panels. If your panels are tilted, rain throughout the year would do most of the job for you. However, there is a need for due diligence, especially during the summer days to make sure your panels are clear of anything. A hose with a decent sprayer will do the job from ground to roof.

If there is any notice of visible damage during your maintenance or you have a feeling your system is a bit under the weather compared to how it usually does, don’t be afraid to contact us at McAllen Valley Roofing Co. By calling the professionals, we make sure that nothing goes amiss and that the system is performing in tip top shape with no need for replacements.
