SOLAR INSPECTIONS & REPAIRS
QUALITY SOLAR SERVICES ON CAPE COD, YOU CAN REALLY COUNT ON
Solar panels are an exceedingly popular building improvement option on Cape Cod. Solar panels and solar integration offers your building the ability to generate energy from a renewable source that will significantly reduce energy costs.
With solar technology being so available and cost effective for the first time in history it is no wonder it is so popular.
What is the condition of your roofing, your geographic location, and your home’s orientation?
What are your regular patterns of electricity usage? Do you plan to connect to the grid? Almost anyone who has AC power provided to their private home or business with a south facing exposure is a candidate for adding a grid-tied solar system.
The most popular solar model for consumers is for single family homes, including manufactured structures.
Your Geographical location will drive the daily solar array output production performance.
Beyond the actual latitude site location, local weather patterns play into the solar ouput yield.” For example, some coastal areas experience morning fog. A little further inland, however, optimal solar exposure may be typical throughout the daylight hours. These variations need to be considered when evaluating the projected ROI for an installation.
Is a residential solar energy system in your future?
Installing photovoltaic (PV) panels to harness solar energy is catching on quickly. According to research data published by Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), by the end of the second quarter of 2014 more than 6,500 megawatts of PV is forecast to come online in the U.S. SEIA says that represents 36 percent growth over previous years installations.
The outlook for residential PV installations: Inevitable growth? Lower costs are almost certainly one reason for this surge in PV installations. Of the three market segments for solar energy system installations — residential, business, and utilities — residential accounted for 247 megawatts coming online from 2013 to mid-2014 in the U.S. More than half a million American homes and businesses now have solar installations.

Which homes benefit most from installing small solar energy systems?
Which plan is right for you? Once you assess the basic considerations and conclude you could benefit, what are your options for residential Solar installation and financing?
Pay outright for the system: You can pay costs upfront to an installation company that does an analysis of the site, designs a system, installs it, and commissions the system with your grid electric service provider. With this model you own the system and the rights to any rebates, federal tax credits and state and utility incentives, and for any excess energy you produce and return to the grid. Cazeault Solar will take care of the paperwork for power company incentives, connection, and commission, and permits. You pay cash, or you arrange your own financing through a home equity loan or second mortgage, for example.
Third-party financing Power Purchase Agreement: You contract with a solar energy system installation company to design, install, and deploy a system but pay nothing up front. Instead, you pay them a fixed rate each month for the duration of the contract. The monthly rate is figured on your current electric consumption. They own the system and the rights to sell back to the grid any energy produced in excess of your needs to cover their maintenance and monitoring costs for the duration of the contract. According to Damrau, this can require installing a system larger than what you would actually need because the solar company has to “harvest more energy than the established consumption rate.
Leasing model: This model is typical of other large equipment leases, such as for automobiles or office equipment. If you don’t want to pay upfront costs to own and have a system installed, you pay to lease the system over a period of years or decades. Generally, when the lease is up, you can buy out the system for what Damrau describes as a “modest fee.”Installing solar panels is no small investment. There are plenty of state and federal incentive programs to help you financially make the most of your investment. “
