Freedom To Produce Your Own Solar Energy
The Trick played by Utility Companies

Utility companies like to be the only game in town. They foster intergenerational dependency on their grid and fossil fuel resources which they charge top dollar for and continually escalate the price of. We are made to think that there is no other way and we have no other choice but to shell out hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars per month to obtain access to their energy supply, without ever owning a piece of the power station that generates all this energy. And these utility companies produce outages that often leave thousands or even millions without power at a time. For example, between 2008 and 2017, over 11.5 million homes were affected by power outages in the state of Texas alone, forcing homeowners to endure more than 1,600 power cuts.

Double-Sided Solar Panels Entering the Market

Posted on Sep 3, 2019

Bifacial Solar Panels

Solar Energy has had some time now to assimilate into the modern way of living. Nearly 3 million solar panel installations have proven that harnessing the sun for energy is exactly what nature intended and the rewards are incalculable. Homeowners and business owners alike have truly been taking the power to produce their electricity into their own hands, such that now utility companies are changing their business model to adapt to the integration of solar technology. This transforming landscape will only be the catalyst to yet, even more of a solar carveout. Solar technology itself has also evolved over time. We have seen roof mounts, ground mounts, portable charging devices, and even rotating solar panels. We’ve seen micro inverters, power optimizers, and battery backup systems. These solar products have become more efficient, unbreakable, and longer...

Going Solar? Don’t Do It Yourself!

Going solar is a courageous decision. Most of us grew up in a society where solar wasn’t an option and it was expected of you to pay in to the power company for your electricity. Over the past ten years, the implementation of solar technology has exploded and more homeowners are excited about the prospects of producing their own electricity. But sometimes as a gesture of pride—and other times as a tactic of curbing their expenditure—a homeowner will opt to do it themselves. Although we at Green Solar Tech nologies applaud the decision to make the switch and we are excited about all the benefits that come with it, doing it yourself can very easily turn into a catastrophe if you are not a solar installer by profession. Here are some of the reasons why it’s a much wiser decision to let the solar company be your friend when you are going solar.

Addressing Fears for Going Solar: Part 2

Posted on May 23, 2019

Fears Going Solar

In the previous essay, we discussed some of the ways fear can get in the way of making the switch to clean solar energy. To read that essay, go here .

Solar energy has gained a lot of popularity over the past several years, but there are still millions of homeowners across the U.S. who know little about it. Don’t let fear of the unknown prevent you from taking advantage of this unlimited natural resource. Sooner or later we will all be going solar because it is the way of the future. Many cities around the country and around the world have already committed to 50%, 75%, and even a 100% solar energy carve-out within the next decade and for good reason—solar is so much cheaper than fossil fuels and significantly better for the environment in the long-term.
