You may have heard that the climate is best in Redwood City, and that’s due in no small part to people like Chris M. who are making the switch to solar! Chris wanted to upgrade his home to solar, but he knew it would be a challenge. The roof of his home is quite large, and on top of that, his new roof would be made of a unique material.This large membrane roof would prove a challenge for any installer, but Chris knew that he could rely on Simply Solar, based on their reputation with large scale and specialty projects. After speaking to one of our expert solar consultants, Chris decided to make the switch, and the results speak for themselves.With Simply Solar, Chris was able to achieve the electrical energy cost reductions he was hoping for, and those savings will only increase over time. In 25 years, Chris will see almost $500,000 dollars in total savings on his electric bill alone!
This 17.02 kW solar panel system will generate approximately 24,612 kWh/year. Chris was initially relying on PG&E for 2068 kWh/month, but will now be able to generate 2051kWh/month on his own! This has reduced his dependency on PG&E to less than 1% of his monthly electric usage.
Potential Tax Credit:
24,612 kWh per year
The amount of electrical production achieved by this system is equivalent to the burning of 19,278 pounds of coal - an incredible impact!
Chris will be able to save approximately $26K on his solar panel system in the form of a tax credit. Additionally, Chris was able to take advantage of NEM2, the current Net Energy Metering program, which will protect him from future rate increases and allow him to maximize his return on investment.
The average homeowner sees an increase in property value of anywhere from $4000-$6,000 dollars per kW of solar generation they install on their home! For Chris, his 17.2 kW system should add more than $68,000 to his property value!
Chris was once paying around $700 a month for his PG&E bill - but with his new Simply Solar installation, those high bills are a thing of the past! His current average bill is approximately $50 a month, and with savings like this, we anticipate that Chris will save almost $500,000 in the next 25 years!
Over the lifetime of his system, Chris will have greatly reduced his environmental impact. In addition to saving almost $500,000, his system will have an environmental impact equivalent to the following over the course of 25 years:
miles driven by an average vehicle
pounds of coal not burned
square feet of US forest preserved
