Tips for Making the Most Out of Solar Power – Part 2

Recoup your investment in solar energy by making the most out of it!

Typically, a standard solar power system will be able to account for around 75 percent of your annual energy needs. By learning how to maximize your solar energy, you will not only be able to recoup the investment you made in solar power, you may even be able to make a profit off of it. In our last blog, we went over several tips to help you make the most out of your solar power. Here are a couple more expert tips:

#3. Minimize your energy usage.

If you can reduce your energy usage, you’ll be able to take advantage of the free solar energy you are getting from the sun even more! The less energy you use, the closer you will be to getting all of your energy from the sun and the lower your energy bills will be.

#4. Cut down on your energy exports.

If you use more energy than your solar power system can provide, you have to pay for that electricity at a standard rate from your provider. Cut down on those energy exports by using the bulk of your electricity during the day, when your solar panels are generating the most power.

Although the experts at Solar Five® have gone over several tips for maximizing your solar power, we have just a few more to go over with you. If you would like to learn more, please stay tuned for our next blog!
