Choosing to have Long Island solar energy installed at your home is a big decision. With such a sizable investment, you need to know that the project will be worthwhile and that it will provide real financial returns in the years to come.
At Long Island Power Solutions, we use technology and our expertise to evaluate how much solar energy your home could produce.
Many of our customers ask, “will I know how much solar power I’ll receive?”
The answer is yes.
What We Consider When Designing Long Island Power Solutions
For every project, we perform a complete energy evaluation to determine the viability of solar power on the property. We’re a smart solar company that uses technology to build shade models so that we know, with a high degree of accuracy, how much energy your installation will produce.
When designing your LI Power Solutions solar system, we consider the following:
- The size and condition of your roof. This lets us know how many solar panels your home will be able to support.
- The position of your home and the pitch of the roof in relation to the sun at any time of the day, and at any time of year.
- We use software tools and drone technology, as well as satellite imagery to determine the shade factor.
- You might assume that your home gets all-day sun, but this might not be the case for panels on the roof.
Taking all of this information, we calculate the shade factor for the entire year. We’ll tell you exactly how much electricity your home will produce using Long Island power solutions panels and inverters.
We can look at your typical energy usage to calculate the potential savings that you could enjoy throughout a single year. Our production estimates are accurate to +/- ten percent, accounting for fluctuations in weather and the quality of sunlight that your panels might receive.
Will I Know How Much Solar Power I’ll Receive in the Winter?
“Will I know how much solar power I’ll receive?” – This is one of the first questions that our customers ask us. Next to the cost of a system, it’s one of the most important factors. Knowing how much solar power you will produce is key to determining the financial viability of Long Island solar energy.
We’ll calculate the power generating potential of your home for every season, including the winter. Your panels will be less efficient when the days are shorter. Snowfall and heavy cloud cover can reduce efficiency or prevent panels from producing altogether.
Even during the worst weeks of the year when your home produces less solar power, you could still enjoy savings on your electric bill. With net metering, any electricity that you send back to the grid on strong production days will be added to a “credit bank” on your electric bill. If you have a month where you produce less than expected or when your consumption is higher, your bill will tap into the credit bank first.
Because of this, Long Island power solutions will provide financial benefits all year long, even when your production is reduced. As a smart solar company, we can also offer solutions for battery storage systems so that you can keep some of the excess power you generate as a backup.
