Solar Panel Installation in Savannah GA and Surrounding Areas
The sun is a tremendous power source. Capturing that power through solar panels reduces your carbon footprint and saves you money on your monthly electric bills. If you want to generate energy rather than consume it, Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning is the company to call in Savannah, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, Ellabell, Pembroke and Richmond Hill, GA, Hilton Head Island, SC and the surrounding area.
How Does Solar Energy Work?
Solar panels hold photovoltaic cells that harness sunlight and change it into energy; the energy then goes to an inverter, which changes it into electricity to power your HVAC system. The panels are often installed on the roof of your Savannah home, but we can also install them in another location with maximum exposure to the sun. A solar system can generate power for more than 20 years.
Harnessing Solar Energy in Savannah GA
Savannah averages 214 days of sunshine a year; even in January, the sun shines 54 percent of the time. That makes solar a practical way to decrease your heating and cooling costs. By installing solar panels, you can also decrease your home’s carbon footprint by about 35,180 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
Long-term, going solar will increase the value of your home if you decide to sell because the new homeowners can reap the benefits of solar without the worries of installation. Rebates and incentives are available in most areas.
