5 Reasons to Invest in Solar Today 1. 52 cents a kWh (Green) 2. Architecturally Designed 3. Cash Rebates 4. Federal Tax Credits 5. Clear AIR (Green)
The roof now = ROI 52 cents per kWh Time-of-use metering means your solar production is worth 52 cents a kWh! Each 1KW of solar should produce 150kWh a month Each 1KW of solar is worth $78.00. 10KW is worth $780 a month.
Why Do Sun Dials Work? Jan2.9 Feb3.3 Mar4.7 Apr5.6 May6.3 Jun6.3 Jul6.8 Aug6.4 Sep5.6 Oct4.6 Nov3.1 Dec2.7 Sun is lower in the winter, higher in the summer. It follows the same path every single day – East to West. These sun-hour numbers are based on fixed tilt solar panels. Tracking systems can increase your yield 40%

Green Impact of a 3KW Residential Solar System Does the same work as this many acres of trees 0.8 acres of trees Pounds of carbon dioxide prevented 5,831 lbs a year Pounds of sulfur dioxide prevented 0.1 lbs per year Pounds of nitrous dioxide prevented 1.7 lbs per year

Architecturally Designed to YOUR home Clean, simple and flush solar installations An Array of solar panels can look great Unique solar materials are available –Flexible solar –Non-penetrating roof systems –Solar Tiles! –Solar tracking on poles (which is very cool for around here) –Solar tracking with little concentrators Permits are pulled with documents created at the citys request. Sometimes we have to create a top view, a side view an upside-down strawberry shortcake view and distance between the roof line and the neighbor. Then the engineering can be a bear if it is anything unique, which in some cases the can be anything solar. The basics are line diagram of the electrical with focused detail on the capacities and load-break of all attached components.

Cash Rebates California Solar Initiative $2.50 per ac watt install in a CASH rebate –More for Non-profits, churches and governments 30% tax federal tax credit for businesses with a $2,000 cap for residences. Extensive rebate paperwork includes energy use survey Time-of-use metering is mandatory
California Solar Initiative Target: 1,000,000 roofs Only 981,000 to go.
Special Thanks to the South Bay Energy Fair Before I finish, Id like to thank Lillian Light David Dutra The South Bay Energy Network and You
Solar Investments The Solar Food Chain Solar cells Solar Panels Inverters Meters System Designers Mounting Hardware Installation including insurance and workers comp The Utility company with –Net-Metering –Time-of-use metering Shipping companies
Solar Investment On Scale Farms, Concentrators and Tech An Example: –150 acres of unusable land –32 Megawatts of Solar Potential –196,275 Solar Panels –142 million dollars before rebates, tax credits, etc –32 million dollars after rebates, tax credits, etc –Will generate 59,000,000 kWh a year –Enough power for every home in Rolling Hills Estates –System designed to collect rain water and divert to botanical gardens
Green Impact of 32 MW of Solar Does the same work as this many acres of trees 8,741 Pounds of carbon dioxide prevented 63,709,506 Pounds of sulfur dioxide prevented 1,093 Pounds of nitrous dioxide prevented 18,574
