Should You Go Solar this Holiday Season?

Posted on Dec 14, 2018

The holiday season is here, and it’s all about giving. You give to others, why not give something to yourself? And what better way to treat yourself than with a gift that actually saves you big money? A solar energy system is a proven way to greatly reduce and even eliminate your electricity bills. The average monthly cost of electricity per home in 2017 was approximately $112. Multiply that by 12 and you’re looking at a very substantial $1,344/year. That’s an extra $1,344 to save, spend or invest however you see fit. On average, a solar panel system saves homeowners upwards of $20,000 in only 20 years. Now, that’s a gift with enduring rewards! Solar energy systems have become extremely efficient and have never been more cost-effective (and cheap). In fact, solar prices have dropped a whopping 99% in the past 40 years. Adding to that bright news, this holiday season ignites...

Is Winter a Good Time to Go Solar?

Posted on Dec 4, 2018

Winter is upon us, and there is a common misconception among those thinking of converting to solar energy that winter is not the time to go solar. But the truth is that winter is just as good a time as any to invest in and to enjoy the benefits of a solar energy system. For those thinking of investing in a new solar energy system, consider that it takes time to have a solar panel system fully installed and wired into the local power grid. Purchasing and installing a solar energy system now ensures that the system will be up and running before the summer months begin. Also be aware that in most regions, solar panel installers prefer installing panels in the winter months to avoid the uncomfortably hot conditions when working on roofs in the summer months. For those living in regions that enjoy seasonal changes in temperature, it may come as a pleasant surprise to know that...

LADWP Solar Incentive Expires at the End of 2018

Posted on Nov 27, 2018

If you are a homeowner in the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) service area, this is your last chance to jump in on their solar incentive program. Now until December 31, 2018, LADWP is offering $0.25 per watt for residential solar energy systems. This amounts to an average of $2,500 for a 10 kW system (about 30 solar panels) in net savings to LA homeowners who apply for the incentive within the next five weeks.

There are approximately $7 million worth of rebate funds available for the program—enough for only 5,000–7,000 more homes to purchase a solar energy system and cash in before the end-of-the-year deadline.

Once LADWP ends the incentive, it will be gone for good!

So help yourself with the reduced cost for your solar panel installation by acting NOW. Contact Green Solar Technologies and let us...

Solar Saves The Day

A Step Back in Time

Imagine that it is the year 1900. The Second Industrial Revolution is in full swing. The American economy is booming unlike anything seen before in history. Immigrants from all over Europe are storming in at the rate of half a million per year into Ellis Island to seize this miraculous new opportunity of liberty and enterprise. And there exists brilliant inventors, among which are Samuel Morse, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, and of course Edison’s greatest contender, Nikola Tesla. At this time, Tesla had recently discovered how to harness the alternating current with the AC motor, essentially winning out the infamous “War of the Currents.” With the advent of this newfound power now discovered for the human race, the future of electrical technology has been shaken wide open. It was up to the world,...

Why Price Doesn't Always Matter Most

Posted on Nov 20, 2018

We all aspire to achieve the American dream. Owning our own property with pride and gaining as much financial independence and freedom of life as possible. Part of this dream is peace of mind and convenience. But what good is this dream when issues arise and we can't enjoy the fruit of our hard work?

Let's face it, as the saying goes, you often get what you pay for. There's no easy way around it. Same applies when it comes to your decision to go solar. An example that comes to mind is cellular plans. We all know which companies offer the best programs—not the cheapest, but simply the best. These are Verizon and AT&T. Sure you can go to Sprint and save a few bucks, but you lose the ability to use data while on a call. Then you can buy a plan with a company like Metro PCS. If you do, good luck streaming that game or your favorite show without without...
