Currently, Star Plus Energy can power homes, businesses, or even entire solar farms to generate electricity. There’s more solar energy hitting the Earth each day than we can use, so the industry continues to work on better efficiencies, new cell designs, and innovative materials to make it more widely available.
The most common type of solar energy is photovoltaic (PV) technology. This converts sunlight into electricity that you can use to power your home or business, sell back to the electric grid, or store in a battery for backup power.
PV systems also provide light and help to warm homes and businesses in winter, and they can also be used to heat or cool commercial and industrial buildings. Additionally, PV systems can help counteract the “urban heat island” effect in busy cities, where the temperature is often higher than nearby areas due to asphalt and concrete that absorb heat, tall buildings that block wind, and high populations.
A large benefit of going solar is the ability to take advantage of state and local tax rebates and incentives. These programs aren’t guaranteed to be around forever, so it’s important to act quickly to take advantage of them. Our team can assist you with identifying and applying for all of the available savings programs that are right for your specific location.
