An Investment as Sure as the Sun
It’s no secret that the cost of consumer and commercial electricity is increasing with no signs of stopping. According to the Energy Information Association’s Annual Energy Review (See Report) the cost of residential electricity in the United States has increased by an average of 39 cents per kWh per year since 2000 while commercial electricity has increased an average 34 cents per year in the same amount of time (including deflation). At the same time residential energy consumption on the west coast has increased by 13% between 2001 and 2005 compared to just 3% between 1997 and 2001.
The residential and commercial sector have an insatiable appetite for energy that is not aided by the recent pressure by government to go green in a world powered by non-renewable energy sources. Even our President has admitted that his plans for a cap and trade system will leave consumer’s with an even emptier wallet. See the video on the left for more information.
So where do we go from here? There is still hope in the form of renewable energy sources but many home and business owners still cringe at the thought of tackling a solar panel solution. At AM Sun we offer tailored solutions with limited hassle. Unlike our competitors we not only customize our projects for maximum output to turn your meter backwards but will analyze your bills and usage in order to move you to a rate that maximizes energy costs during hours of peak solar electricity production. This further increases what you save on your already optimized solar system.
Solar panels in California are one of the only investments for home and business owners that is tax-exempt, government subsidized, and as sure as the sun rising in the morning. Our clients report a return on their investments of 10% – 30%. Compare that with the risky returns of wall street or nominal return from CD’s and you’ll understand why solar has people talking and investing.
