Amazingly, but not surprisingly 85% of all solar power systems installed in homes are in California. California is often a leader in new technologies including those that make energy production and usage more efficient and those that are environmentally friendly. With the cost of solar power having come down considerably over the last few years thanks in large part to the technology having advanced rapidly in the same time frame there’s never been a better time to have solar panels installed in your home.

When you contact us here at SolarGem you’ll be greeted by an experienced and courteous individual who will go over all of the benefits that solar power brings with it. He/she will also field any questions and concerns you may have and help put your mind at ease with regards to the technology and even the initial cost of installation. Once you commit to having a new solar power system installed your property will be inspected in order to determine the best location for your new solar panels. We will also go over with you just how much your energy bills will decrease and assist you with tax credits and even state rebates. Once all these things have been completed we will install your new solar panels and let you begin saving energy!

With regards to the pros and cons of utilizing solar power there are far more pros than there are cons though in an effort to be objective and fair to our customers we will cover both. In the pro department’s solar energy does not produce any pollution which means there’s less carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide filling our atmosphere. Additionally solar power systems operate very quietly decreasing noise pollution dramatically. One of the most impressive benefits of having solar panels installed is that the tax breaks and state rebates mentioned previously often pay for up to as much as 40% of the cost of the system itself. The only real con associated with installing new solar panels is the initial costs associated with doing so though this can be offset by tax breaks and rebates. Additionally those who live in volatile climates and those whose homes don’t see much sun won’t benefit as much from solar power as those who live in say Orange County.
