Why solar is right for you
The climatic changes of global warming that are affecting us have made going solar a smart choice, but it has never been so economically attractive as right now due to state and federal tax incentives. By eliminating your electric bill, your investment in the solar electric system can be paid off in three years.
The California Energy Commission (CEC) is currently providing cash rebates in an effort to support homeowners, businesses, as well as non-profit organizations with the installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The CEC has reserved millions of dollars for renewable energy system rebates for California that are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Your rebate is deducted from the total cost of the project,
lowering your out-of-pocket expense. Cash Rebates and tax incentives are only available for a limited time.
We deliver solar success in three phases
1 Analysis, Design and Construction
We conduct an on-site assessment of your energy needs and your roofʼs solar production potential. From that assessment, PCS Energy designs a photovoltaic power system that utilizes the latest technologies, materials, and designs to optimize solar energy production.
2 Certification and Operation
We manage the complete renewable power certification process and perform testing to identify baseline use and savings. We then activate your system which generates clean, renewable energy from the sun.
3 Monitoring and Maintenance
Using state-of-the-art technology, we continually monitor and control system performance. When needed, we promptly deploy certified technicians to keep systems running at optimal levels. And customers can check in on the performance of their solar energy service via a smartphone app or an online portal.
The energy that your solar panel system collects is clean, efficient, and most importantly, free. The system collects sunlight during daytime hours all year round and converts this energy into AC current that powers your business and home. Obviously, the production of solar panels and solar inverters does expend energy and materials, but with solar panels lasting more than 30 years and inverters more than 10 years, during which time they produce the energy needed for your business or residence, investing in solar is one of, if not the, best thing you can do to reduce your carbon footprint.
Solar panels have no moving parts, so other than an annual hosing down (for dust or any other natural build up), they can sit on your property's roof working efficiently with no extra support from you for many years and even decades. Think about other investments you make and all the time and effort you put into them, and then consider the minimal effort you have to put into what many consider a similar return in converting to solar.
Based on research of our customers, we confirmed what we already assumed to be the case: the vast majority of businesses that invest in solar do so for the financial benefits, and all the other benefits of solar are a bonus but are not the main impetus for considering the switch. We have several customers that have achieved or are on track to complete return on investment within 3–5 years, and they are now enjoying no electricity bill. They have also added value to their property and have protected themselves against the power price hikes that are expected from not only the impact of the carbon tax, but the billions the LADWP is expecting to spend in the next two years on electrical infrastructure investments.
The federal government has an ambitious target of reducing the country's greenhouse emissions by 20% by 2020. This is a huge undertaking and a huge promise, and the government is enacting a number of industry-enabling funding sources throughout the renewable industry.
Why Electric Vehicle Chargers
Electric vehicles seem to have finally gained a solid foothold. With continued adoption, there will be an increasing need for access to charging locations. We recognize that many drivers today do most of their charging at home and we are committed to providing a solution.
