Go Green Energy—Save Green Dollars
Solar energy is the way of the future. No longer do you pay more to be green. Instead, when you go green, you save green. To compete in business, you will need the benefits of solar.
- If you own your building, solar will immediately reduce your energy costs by 30-40%, and in ten years, your energy will be free.
- If you are a landlord, solar will monetize your roof, usually by $2.00 per foot or more.
- If you are a school, county, or city, solar will reduce taxpayer energy costs by 20-40% and provide the positive feedback from residents and constituents.
Plus, your energy is green and renewable. Your array will:
- Eliminate the need to mine coal or pump fossil fuels
- Eliminate the need to transport coal or fossil fuels
- Eliminate the need to burn coal or fossil fuels
A few facts:
- Minnesota is one of the best states in the country for solar energy
- Solar panels carry a 25 year warranty (and most panels from 40 years ago are still producing)
- No roof penetrations—arrays are ballasted
- Seamless integration with the grid means that there is never an interruption in energy
Want to see how solar can work for you?
- The average single family home in Minnesota has more than enough sunlight falling on its property to meet its energy needs every single day all year long. Of course, not all buildings have optimal conditions. But, the fact is, if you have a large south-facing roof with minimal shade, sunlight can be harvested to help power your home electrical needs. Solar panels are silent, non-polluting, generators with a continuous supply of free fuel.
- Did you know, in an average year, we have more sunlight in the Twin Cities than they do in Jacksonville or Houston? Another interesting fact is that Minnesota gets more sunlight per square foot than the country of Germany. This is an important comparison because Germany uses more solar energy than any other country. If they can do it, so can we.
- It seems like solar cells were invented for Minnesota. Here’s an interesting fact: solar cells work better as they get colder. A typical solar electric system loses power as it heats up. The opposite is true as well: solar panels actually produce more energy as the temperature drops. If you compare the outputs of a module in Arizona operating at 100 degrees (F) with the identical module in Minnesota at 0 degrees, you’ll see the Minnesota module producing about 10% more power.
- Solar systems have life expectancy of 30 – 40 years. All that time there is nothing to throw away and no pollution. That means there’s a lot less waste going to our landfills.
