Our services range from net metering to solar pool heating and everything in between.
Solar Sun Surfer is providing a great service to the environment.
The move toward green energy is inevitable. The world cannot continue to heavily depend on fossil fuels without permanently damaging the environment and making it harder for generations to sustain themselves.
Santa Clara County Solar Installation: Solar installation services like ours are encouraging the increased use of solar energy to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and reduce the cost of utilities for residential and commercial clients.
The services we provide assist our clients in becoming self-sufficient on the energy front to the point half of the energy costs may be shaved or stored for use at a later time as in the case of net metering.
Net metering: It refers to a government incentive backing solar installation services that allow the client to store the energy produced by their panels within the surrounding power grid.
When the level of solar energy being produced is more than what is being consumed from the power grid, the meter starts to run, and energy is stored in the grid for a later time when the consumption is more than the production.
Net metering is especially convenient is areas which have hot climates such as Santa Clara County because the sun is virtually out every day of the year.
In the regions which have prolonged periods of winter, the stored energy would be used to offset the utility charges but only to a certain point.
The effects of cost-saving would not be as strong in this case.
Net metering is highly beneficial for commercial clients as well, considering it sets a significant dent within the overhead expenses. That would allow customers to return their investments over a short period.
Solar Pool Heating: For residential pools, the solar installation works directly with the inbuilt pump and filter.
In some cases, there may be a need to add a booster pump or a larger filter. The present systems use an automatic diverting valve.
The filtration system is made to run during the period where the sun is most intense.
At this time, when the solar collector senses adequate heat is present, it causes the motorized diverting valve to turn and this, in turn, forces the flow of pool water through the collectors where the water is then heated and recirculated to the rest of the pool.
There is a heat exchange process where the collectors exchange heat energy with the water.
The water, in turn, cools the collector. There is a constant heating process to maintain the temperature of the pool.
When the heat is not there, the water bypasses the collector. As such a lot of systems do not have a lot of moving parts and that minimizes the overall complexity of the operation of the system.
The great thing with solar pool heating systems is they are quite durable, lasting up to 20 years before the need for replacement.
They also shave a lot of the energy costs that are required with conventional pool heating systems. The overheads used for utility heating are saved during the life of the solar pool heater.
The initial investment for the system may be from $3000 to $5000, but this can be offset within a period of one to two years.
The methods available from Solar Sun Surfer also work well in commercial setups for universities, resorts, and military bases.
Usually, a 100-panel structure may save upwards of 2400 gallons of LP fuel every month if the system is running on fossil fuels.
Additionally, the pool heater will work with the pump already within the pool, and so it is the most efficient energy alternative.
Electric or gas related heaters tend to have meager energy efficiency ratings.
A heating pump has a higher energy rating compared to gas or electric pool heater though it is still lower than a solar pool heater.
Santa Clara County Solar Water Heaters: Solar Sun Surfer provides our customers with the options of tankless water heating.
Even though they are not as common as the storage style solar water heaters, there are heating systems which utilize a tankless water heater as a backup in the event solar heated water is not sufficient.
In these cases, the unit would deliver enough water heated through the conventional energy source to raise the temperature based on particular settings.
If space is the main issue, then you may confer with one of our specialists if this is a good alternative.
As with picking the size of the water heating for your needs, you will also have to consider the household’s water consumption or the commercial needs if it is a business.
Solar water heaters may be costly to set up, but they have a good return on investment.
On average, 18 percent of the domestic energy goes toward heating water. The use of solar water heaters then would cut the costs of heating water by up to 80 percent.
After recovering from the installation charges for a few years, then you can heat as much water as possible for free. The great thing about solar water heaters is they have significant longevity.
They can last from 20 to 50 years without a need to replace the system. Plus, you are never going to experience shortages like with utility grids because the sun is always present depending on whether you are in a hot climate.
Solar Sun Surfer is there to ensure that you fulfill your part in making this a reality.
