Summer and Solar Power

May 28, 2018

When you think about summer what comes to mind?  Many people would say: the beach, being outdoors, warm weather and, of course, bright shining sun! Summer is a fantastic time to consider installing a solar energy system on your home as this is peak time for long sunny days. While SunPower panels can be installed at pretty much any time of year, the summer is an especially beneficial time to start taking advantage of the power of the sun. Here are some reasons why summer is a great time to “Go Solar!”

  • Summer is an Electrically Expensive Time – How many air conditioners, fans, and other appliances do you keep running non-stop throughout the hot and humid days of summer? If your home is anything like ours, there is a huge draw on the electrical power during the summer months. In an effort to stay cool, many homes use whole house air conditioning or window units to do the job. Think of how fast your electric meter must be spinning for each minute you run those items. Solar panels could be the right solution for your home and energy needs.
  • Benefit the Grid – Summer tends to be a time when there are peak usage times where cities ask customers to conserve or, for the unlucky, a time when there are brownouts due to too much strain on the grid by air conditioners and home electric usage. By switching to solar, you can help your city and home by adding in a positive way to the grid! 
  • Help the Environment – Summer is a great time to get outdoors and breathe in the fresh air. Consider the positive impact of going solar in that solar production produces no pollutants unlike fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. Think about that next time you are outside enjoying that clean air.

Are you considering “Going Solar” this summer? It is a great time of year to start the process and get them installed. Call SunPower at BlueSel 781-281-8130 to set up an appointment to see if your home is a good candidate for solar panelling.
