Featured Solar FAQ: Should We Wait to Go Solar?
Maybe better technology will come along. Should we wait to go solar?
We live in a fast paced world of technology where nothing is stagnant and “new” is always the focus. Yet for the decades that I’ve been following renewable energy, we’ve always heard that the next big thing was always just around the corner. But when it came time for us to make solar easy and affordable for Vermonters, we went with mature, tried and true technology that we know will hold up and generate clean power for the coming decades. Maybe something better will come along, maybe it won’t. Maybe government incentives will dry up, maybe they won’t. What we are certain of is that the high quality solar systems we’re making available will generate electricity for the same or less than folks are paying their utilities, at a rate locked in for the life of the lease even as utility electricity rates continue to rise.
After checking out all the equipment available on the market, we chose SunPower panels because they are the most efficient photovoltaic panels. Based in Silicon Valley with 140 solar patents, SunPower’s leading technology means our panels can deliver40% more energy than the conventional panels. And SunPower has been making panels for over 25 years and has the track record to stand behind its 25 year warranty. We didn’t want to roll the dice with some unproven new technology or an outfit that jumped into solar on a whim a short time ago.
So, you can rest assured that you are getting the very best there is. The sooner you go solar, the sooner you’ll be saving money and the sooner you’ll be part of the solar community that does right by our planet, AND your wallet. Sounds good, don’t you think?
