FPL VS SOLAR ENERGY

22 September 2021 Posted by vmotta Solar Battery

We know we have always had these current means with their conspiracy theories regarding solar panels and clean energy. On one hand, this is good; since solar panels are becoming more visible to those people/families/companies don’t know this way of obtaining their electricity. But on the other hand, many articles denounce the high cost and low effectiveness of managing a property with solar energy.

 CHALLENGING THE EFFICIENCY OF SOLAR PANELS

As a company, we are fully aware of the movement. It is a great challenge for all the people, organizations and companies involved in the implementation of solar energy in Florida.

Public services are spreading erroneous information that discourages customers in the state of Florida from installing solar panels on their properties, telling them that solar energy is not cheap and not worth it. That is a big mistake since solar panels are by far the cheapest way to get electricity. Of course, according to them, solar energy is bad, especially when the owner cuts the utility and installs it himself. This is why; Core Energy Solar and the other solar energy companies are struggling and looking for ways to provide clean and honest information about this to their consumers.

Solar energy threatens hastily, the financial stability of utility companies. In Florida, these companies are fighting hard not to lose. They have had control for decades and do not want to give it up.

More than a third of U.S. GHG emissions result from the burning of fossil fuels for electricity usage in buildings and homes. Both Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and Photovoltaic (PV) technologies produce clean, emissions-free electricity and can feed this electricity directly into the U.S. grid. Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC) technologies can also be used to displace the need for electricity. Through 2018, the U.S. now has more than 67 gigawatts (GW) of cumulative installed solar electric capacity, enough to power more than 13.1 million average American homes, and offset 78.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions

Many electricity companies think that “a solar energy owner in Florida is not a customer, but a competitor.” Citizens as a community have the right to change the way they can obtain clean energy on their own.

ARE SOLAR PANELS MORE EXPENSIVE OR NOT?

Solar panels are cheaper! Without a doubt, they are much cheaper than paying a monthly bill to the utility company for the rest of their life. That argument that solar panels are more expensive than paying your monthly utility bill is totally false and without merit.

Think of your solar array as a 25-year investment! By the time your system is amortized, you will see savings of more than $1,000 per year until the end of the life of your system, and the value of your home increased by more than $14,000. In addition, you have created some green for the earth.

WHY BUY SOLAR PANELS?

Because it helps you save your monthly electricity bill for the rest of your life!

Solar energy is a good alternative; it is a direct or indirect energy source of almost all the energy we use. In many homes, greenhouses, and premises, they use solar energy to heat the environment and power countless autonomous devices. With Solar Energy, it is sought to maximize the benefits offered by the sun.

30% OF THE COST OF SOLAR PANELS THROUGH THE INVESTMENT TAX CREDIT (ITC)

The renewable energy tax credit is available to both residential owners and commercial companies. It also significantly reduces the recovery time of the investment in solar energy.

Until 2019, the tax credit is and will remain 30% of the cost of installation and solar panels. By 2020, the credit will be reduced from 30% to 26%. In 2021, this incentive will be further reduced to 22%. After 2021; the residential tax credit is scheduled to expire completely and only a credit of less than 10% will be available for commercial solar energy systems. 30% is a huge amount, almost a third of the total cost. It is a very generous offer designed to encourage citizens to make the switch to clean energy.

THE CLIMATE CHANGE AND SOLAR ENERGY

The threat of climate change is real; as carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions have increased dramatically in recent decades; solar energy is a renewable, carbon-free resource available, with enormous potential to reduce GHG emissions. Any market or policy solution to address climate change must include a significant development of solar energy to drive a clean and affordable economic future.

While we know that the electric power sector is among the largest contributors of greenhouse gases in the United States, it represents 28% of all emissions. Solar energy concentration (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) technologies produce clean, emission-free electricity that can help reduce US GHG emissions.

There is no single technology that can reduce all GHG emissions in the US. Solar technologies are a crucial component of our national effort to curb emissions and achieve ambitious climate goals. Solar energy is not only a solution that can help mitigate our impact on the climate but also contributes to the resilience and reliability of our power grid, which makes the United States have safer energy in the face of the increase of natural disasters and powerful storms that become more frequent in a changing climate
