Is there enough sunlight to power my home via solar panels?
At Power Home Solar, this is a question often asked by potential customers: Is there enough sunlight to successfully power my home via solar panels?
While everyone’s situation is unique, depending on the direction your home faces and how much shade your property receives, chances are excellent that you live in a state where there is enough solar energy to power your home with solar panels.
Power Home Solar currently does business in five states — Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia — and is eyeing the potential to grow further. Even in the two northern states with much harsher winters, Michigan and Ohio, there is enough sunshine to offset your energy usage over an entire year. According to the International Energy Agency, Germany was the world’s per capita leader in solar energy in 2016, yet it is far less sunny there over the course of a year than either Michigan or Ohio. So if it works in Germany, it will work in Michigan and Ohio. And, in our three southern states, there is no problem with getting enough sunlight. Ask anyone living in those locales!
It’s important to note that the goal of your solar energy system is to offset your energy usage over an entire year, not any given day, week, or month. In the sunnier summer months, your system can generate more energy than you use, generating electric bill credits. In the cloudier, winter months, your system may generate less energy than you use, and you can use the credits you generated during the summer. Even though it’s cloudy, however, your system will still be generating energy, just not as much — think about how one can get a sunburn even with cloud cover.
With our innovative solar program, homeowners can go solar for $0 up-front cost, save money on their electric bills, and generate their own clean energy. The solar panels installed on your home are American made and come with a 25-year warranty, with many panels expected to last well beyond that.
