Did you know that the amount of solar energy that reaches the earth’s surface each hour is enough to power world-wide energy needs for a whole year?  Now homeowners can tap into this renewable resource with updated technologies that can save energy and lower utility bills.  

One such technology is the photovoltaic (PV) power system. These PV systems use solar panels to capture solar energy to make direct current (DC) electricity, which is then switched into useable alternating current (AC) power through an inverter.

As a result of net metering, MA PV systems feed the electricity produced into the utility company grid, literally running the meter backwards, and lowering the producer’s electric bill.  If the system generates more electricity than used, this is credited for future use during winter months when the PV system produces less.

Along with greater energy independence and environmental responsibility, two of PV systems’ most attractive features, residential systems are also becoming more efficient and less costly to install.   

Since 2011 alone, installation costs have dropped by 60%. In 2008, PV system cost was around $9/ watt. Today these installation costs hover slightly above $4/ watt, but continue to drive down.   On average, residential systems are sized at 5 kilowatts (kw), which translates into a $20,000 price tag to acquire a system.   

However, with very generous state and federal financial incentives, homeowners can expect to see installation costs paid for in 5-6 years, and negligible electric bills starting as soon as the system is operating.   No money down leasing arrangements are available as well.  Installers provide a warranty guaranteeing 20+ years of production.   

If you’re interested in knowing more, check out the Dept. of Energy Resources video here.  You can also look for a reputable solar installation company at the Mass Clean Energy Center “Finding a Solar PV Installer” webpage here.
