It’s not uncommon for an HOA to miss out on environmentally friendly initiatives. There is a lot to consider and conserving energy is just one small area where an HOA can go green and save big. When an HOA makes the jump to go solar, it can result in dramatic cost savings and minimal environmental impact. Read on to learn the benefits of going solar.
Evaluate Your Situation
The first step for an HOA to take when considering the jump to solar is to look at your electricity output. There are a couple of options to consider depending on the size of the development. You can choose to separately meter each unit for electricity and hot water or you can choose to have one meter for the entire complex.
Making the conversion to solar can save an HOA thousands of dollars annually, even taking into consideration the initial solar roofing cost. Most see that the benefits outweigh the cost because you are accomplishing three important goals:
- Reducing your carbon footprint
- Increasing the property’s value
- Drastically lowering energy costs for the foreseeable future
And as an added benefit, the solar system can extend the life of the roof by protecting it from weather.
Solar Roofing Incentives
The California Energy Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission created the Go Solar California campaign to advocate for energy conservation using renewable energy. Customers with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) are all eligible to apply for solar incentives.
Basics of Solar Roofing
Solar panels harvest the sunlight and convert direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) that can then be used as electricity. The panels will charge throughout the day harvesting this energy. Energy conversion happens through an intricate micro-inverter system. The amount of actual energy gathered depends on the size of the roof and the panels. Energy is stored as it is converted.
Benefits of Solar Roofing
Solar roofing provides numerous benefits including reducing your energy bill and saving you money every month of the year. It also provides a reliable, independent source of energy for your property and it noticeably increases your home’s value. Panels reduce your carbon footprint and are minimal maintenance. You are also making a great investment and providing your home with flashy, new curb appeal.
