Solar Sun Surfer is your one-stop solar services shop with several in-house professionals on call to give you their very best to get the job done right, on time, and on budget.
We provide specialized solar installation services for commercial and residential use.
For the homeowners, it starts with solar panels. They can be placed on the ground or the roof. They also ought to be facing a 30-degree angle for the best results considering the California location.
Now when it comes to the commercial systems, the size is substantially larger and we allow for several megawatts in size depending on how much electricity is needed by the facility.
A distributed generation would be in effect as the system is used at the point of generation.
We provide distributed generation projects such as ground or rooftop mounted panels which are then connected to the local electrical grid.
That would allow the commercial clients to take advantage of something known as net metering which will be covered later on this page.
Considering the location, we get a lot of requests for solar pool heaters, so the company opted to bring in professionals specialized in the installation requirements.
Solar pool heating systems utilize panels in the same way as residential or commercial structures.
Water is then pulled through the solar collector, and this would heat the pool. The technology also works, if you have to cool the water at night which is the case with the hot Californian climate.
The technology has a filter that removes the debris before water is pulled through the collector, so there is little chance of clogging.
The solar pool heaters also have a pump that assists with circulating the water through the filter to the collector and then back to the pool.
Solar pool heaters in CA are quite cost effective and will allow commercial owners to breakeven in around two years at the most.
The great thing about them is solar pool heaters have a lifespan of about 25 years, and they require no special manual maintenance that one needs to do.
There may be an electronic control as well which allows one to set the temperature and then forget. The heater can be set to work with or without any input.
We also offer solar heater systems to those looking to further lower their energy costs and impact on the environment. There are direct and indirect circulation structures for solar water heaters in Contra Costa County.
The direct systems are optimal for areas that do not have hard water and climates that do not have long winters.
This is an optimal choice for most people who live in California’s beautiful climate. The system operates through sending portable pressurized water through collectors.
On the other hand, indirect circulation systems send heat transfer fluids through the collectors and the heat exchangers transfer the heat from the fluids to potable water.
These are best for the climates which have long winters. Our package arrives with overheat protection so when the intensity is too high, this system will prevent the transfer fluid and collector from getting damaged.
The most important factor that you should consider before deciding on the system to use is the water source.
Being able to assess if the source is hard or soft is critical when choosing the best solar water heater to be used.
Plumbing should also be evaluated because it’s possible to ask for installation into the wrong system if you are not aware of how two-way piping works.
Two-way piping is a mechanism where hot and cold water is connected to the house using two separate pipes.
In this case, the owner is only billed according to the net energy that is used for a specific period.
The client can store excess energy and feed it into the grid which would offset their payments when they are consuming more than what they are producing.
When the commercial business or the residence is net metered, a strange thing will happen because the meter will run backward and that could mean, you may qualify for a credit for hedging the electricity used from the grid when the sun is out or at night.
The client is only billed on their net-usage.
The excess power is set back into the network then, for the neighbors to use. In so doing, you can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on utility bills every year and so it is a great reason to make it an option.
Depending on utility grids has been a way of life since the time electricity was discovered and private corporations began to profit from hydroelectric and petroleum power.
Unfortunately, the energy sector needs to be less dependent on the fossil fuel sector and more on the renewable industry. That means going solar is a way of being ahead of the curve.
The best thing about solar energy is that customers will never have to issue regular payments to a utility company for use.
Presently, net metering allows for the client to offset their bills by storing solar energy within their electrical grid when there is sun and using it to pay off the utilities when the sun is out.
The environmental benefit is the lack of emissions from use. Solar energy does not threaten the way of life of any species because it uses the most natural and abundant resource of all.
