If your objective is green energy at an affordable price, then look no further than Solar Sun Surfer.
We offer solar energy installation services for just about anything within Sonoma County.
For those residents and commercial clients who are thinking about renewable energy options, there is no better location.
Sonoma County is among the forefront of green energy. In fact, the county set a reduction level for greenhouse gases to 25% below the standards as they were in 1990 by the year 2020.
Considering solar energy initiatives are on the rise, this will become one of the most solar oriented counties in the years to come, and Solar Sun Surfer is here to make sure you do not get left behind when the going is good.
Solar Installation: We offer installation for both commercial and residential clients, depending on their needs.
The setup for both residential and commercial structures can be done on the roof using a bolted racking system or on the ground.
Solar Panels: On the other hand, because the majority of commercial panels are installed on the roof, a non-penetrating mounting system would be an adequate option, and that means a quick and easy means of installation.
When it comes to the production, of course, the commercial panels in CA offer higher energy output as the groups have more cells.
They also have higher efficiency, considering the retail options are about a foot more extensive with 96 cells as opposed to the standard 72 for the residential panels.
Our package also arrives with an opportunity for a solar tracker which will allow the panels to follow minute movements of the sun in the course of the day to maximize the output to the client.
Panel tilting is set at 34 degrees by the optimal positioning mandate for California as a state.
As solar options are mainly sold as per kilowatt hours, there is usually zero cost difference between the commercial and residential alternatives for the consumer.
This takes from the assumption that you pay according to the number of panels. California also apparently provides a number of rebates for residential and commercial clients that install solar energy.
Net Metering: It refers to the ability for the client to use the utility grid as a storage option for energy produced using the solar panels either during commercial or residential setups.
The storage of solar energy within the network can offset the amount of energy they consume when the sun is out, and that saves a lot of money in electricity bills on an annual basis. I
n fact, during net metering, the meter runs backward as opposed to forwards.
Net metering alternatives make it easier for customers to store up energy, especially since Sonoma County does not have long winter seasons, and so it is easier to save as much energy as possible in the year.
Solar Pool Heating: By heating the pool using solar energy, it becomes possible to save up to hundreds of dollars every month from utility bills even though it may be costly to set up.
You should be able to regain the investment within a period of one and a half to two years.
Solar collectors as they are termed also have a long shelf life of reportedly 15 to 20 years so this is something that will be saving energy for the household for years to come.
The way it works is a solar collector transfer heat from the sun to the water. The water is recirculated by high-density polymer plates which have been exposed to the sun.
It is critical to note the water passes through a filtration system before it reaches the plates to avoid damaging.
The water is then recirculated to the pool, keeping it at a controlled appropriate temperature.
There are options as well to reduce pool temperature should the environment be too hot.
The operational costs are almost none, and the best thing is it is without fuel or electrical power.
The same filtering used for circulating the pool’ water through the collectors also functions on the solar power generated. It is a self-sustaining system if ever there was one.
Solar Water Heating: While solar panels convert the energy of the sun into electricity or heat, solar water heating systems get the heat from the available sun to heat the water pumped into the tank for use and storage to allow for hot water for cooking, laundry, and bathing.
It can also be used to heat or cool the air in building spaces as the official air conditioning mode using affecting solar collectors.
It may also be for heating or cooling the building structures through passive solar designs and setting the windows in the best position to use the heat of the sun without, mainly mechanical systems.
The best thing with solar water heaters from Solar Sun Surfers is each system is tailored according to the customer’s specifications.
It can be engineered to meet hot water demands even on a commercial scale. The usual savings here range from 25% to 60% over a year in electrical and gas bills.
If financial prudence is not a good enough reason to partner with us and install one of our solar products, then the ecological advantage should be an incentive.
The age of fossil fuels is fast coming to an end, and other energy alternatives will
have to become the mainstream during the next few decades.
The transition is inevitable, so why not start taking the initiative and start getting used to green energy modes.
The solar products we provide do not have any carbon footprint, and they require next to nothing when it comes to operational costs.
Similarly, you will be in the best place to take advantage of these services considering Sonoma has been at the forefront of green energy policies for some time now.
There are rebates and hidden benefits that come from using solar energy within the area, so this may be one of the most sensible utility investments you can do.
