GoSolar NH are Southern Maine & New Hampshire’s premier provider of solar energy products, services & installations.
Solar energy saves billions of dollars and provides clean, renewable and sustainable energy.It requires very little maintenance. Once the solar panels are installed there is no maintenance required except to check every year if they are in good working order. The panels are made up of photovoltaic cells which help to convert sunlight into electricity without any sound which can be used in our day to day life. There are regular advancements in the solar panels which help in improving the efficiency of the system and bringing down the cost which makes it affordable. This is the best energy as there are no emissions.
Solar Power in New Hampshire
A small percentage of the energy that is used in New Hampshire is solar energy. Net metering can be used for 1MW of solar energy generation and is stopped at 50 MW. The excess is rolled over to electricity utility each month and the customers are paid for in credits once in the year at whatever is the rate. Homeowners can now choose from where they want their energy to come.
A solar panel for the home is much cheaper than you would think and comes with lot of additional benefits. The incentives offered by New Hampshire bring down the cost. The financing options provided by RGS make it very convenient for people of New Hampshireto opt for solar energy.
Have Solar Energy with a Grid Tie-up
When you have installed solar panels on the roof top you can generate your own electricity. This energy that is created can be used for your home consumption and the extra can be exported to the grid for credits so that when there is no sun or the sky is cloudy solar power can be imported from the grid for home consumption. When the rate of electricity goes up the value of the electricity that you provide to the grid also goes up proportionally.
The electricity generated by solar panels is reliable and long lasting. The photovoltaic panels are designed to last for 25- 30 years providing energy. The warranty for these panels is 25 years. This electricity is used and created in the same place so does not require installing of transmission lines which would involve a lot of expense.
The Working of Grid-Tied Solar Panels
When you have grid tied solar panels you do not require batteries for back-up or power lines, the solar power is connected directly to the grid which acts as the battery back-up. When the photovoltaic cells produce more energy than is required for home consumption it is passed on to the grid and you get credits. When there is no sunlight and the solar power produced is less then you can get power from the grid.
The electricity utility resolves the electricity consumed by you and the credits at the end of the month and if you have consumed extra you get a bill for it. The credits can be carried forward for a year. This is known as net metering.
In conclusion solar energy in New Hampshire is clean and sustainable besides being environment friendly and affordable.
