Solar Power has increased at record pace in the United States. The United States conducted much research in solar power and is among the top countries in the world in electricity generated by the sun. 

By 2021, the United States had 121,475 MW of installed photovoltaic and solar power capacity combined exceeded only by China and the European Union.

There are plans to build many large solar plants in the United States. Many states have renewable energy goals with solar power being included. Renewable energy is now the most cost effective way for power generation which mean more wind, solar and energy efficiency is chosen over fossil fuels.

Solar power is more affordable and accessible in the United States than ever before. Since 2014, the cost of solar photovoltaics(PV) panels has dropped by 70%. Solar panels can be installed on rooftops and by 2030 more than one in seven homes in the United States will have a rooftop solar PV system installed.

Purchasing a solar system for your home has many benefits which include:

1. You are eligible for tax credits.
2. You reduce your electricity costs.
3. The value of your home is increased.
4. Many banks offer finance for solar energy systems.
5. Many solar energy systems offer warranties.
6. Many installers offer maintenance plans.
7. Solar energy dramatically reduces greenhouse gases and other dangerous pollutants and is great
for the environment.

 

When powering your home with solar energy, homeowners should properly investigate their home's energy efficiency.
Homeowners should calculate total electricity usage and perform home energy audits.

PV technologies use both direct and scattered sunlight to create electricity, so the United States is one of the best
countries for home solar electric systems. Investigate the use of mapping services and tools to determine
your home's full solar potential.

You need to consider the following:
1. Shady trees nearby. Contractors will help you evaluate the shading which could effect your system.
2. How old your roof is and when it would need to be replaced. If it needs to be replaced soon, you may want
to do that before purchasing a solar powered system.
3. Check for any restrictions if any in your neighbourhood for installing a solar powered system.

When looking for solar installers, be sure to find qualified and insured professionals with the proper certification.
The solar industry certification if from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practicioners.
It is a good idea to ask friends and family for references before hiring a solar installer for your home.

Be sure to check the warrany that comes with your solar powered system. Most solar panels are backed by an industry
warranty of 20 years and 10 years for inverters. The homeowner should also establish whose responsibilty it is
to maintain and repair the solar powered system and the costs involved.


The cost of solar panels depend on the size of the system, type of equipment and your electricity usage:
1. Size of system: This will be determined by your available roof space, electricity usage and your affordability.
2. Type of equipment: Standard roof mount, single-tilt roof mount or dual-tilt roof mount.
3. Electriciy usage: This would depend on the size of your faimily and energy needs.

 

A typical solar power system includes solar panels, an inverter power station, the cable management system, the mechanical mounting system and the monitoring and energy management software system.
