Why Utah Solar Panels Mean Social Status
Last Updated on
Quality solar panels are your ticket to higher living. Within the last 10 years, solar installations have boomed. This is because those that care about the future have invested in this technology.
Take a look at your neighborhood. More and more homes have solar panels installed. Is this just a trend, or is there more behind it than meets the eye?
Wealth Signals in Utah: What Does Solar Signal?
Credit cards have allowed us to be in loads of debt and still buy items that make us appear well-to-do. Those that are wealthy, however, spend their money in different ways. Yes, they may still have a nice home and car, but this isn’t what sets them apart. What matters is the reasoning behind the purchase. People spend more money on what they value most. And the wealthy have three common items that they value.
Solar Power’s Role in Education
Education composes about 6 percent of wealthy family expenditures. This is high when you compare it to the middle class. Only 1 percent of middle-class expenditures are towards education. The elite spend far more money on the best schools for their children and grandchildren. This is because passing on their lifestyle is important to the aspiring class. They feel that the key to obtaining and maintaining wealth is education.
Retirement and Solar’s Intertwining
Money is a constant struggle for many. We work day in and day out — only to have to wake up the next morning and work more. We all want to retire, but the wealthy set themselves up to retire well. The aspiring class invests their money in places that allow it to work for them. Their purpose for investing is so they can live in retirement without stress over money. These investments vary, but they all come down to what they feel will save them time and money in the future.
Health Outcomes From Renewable Energy in the Home
Wealthy individuals value healthy living. More often than not, those that have money to spare will spend more on organic food. They go out of their way to make sure that their families have well-balanced meals.
This health consciousness is also spread out in other areas as well. Wealthy individuals spend more on health care and environmentally-friendly products. Health, and maintaining it, is of utmost importance.
How Solar Meets the Laudable Goals of the Powerful
Each of these things has a pull on the wealthy. When they see that something will help in one of these areas they get drawn to it. Interestingly enough, solar arrays have a connection to all three.
Education is meaningless without a future to plan for. Taking care of our environment will help preserve it. Solar ensures a future for their children so their investment in education isn’t in vain.
Because Utah Valley is, well, a valley, pollution gets stuck there until a good storm comes in and blows it out. This trapped pollution is harmful to community health. With a solar panel system, however, you have joined the fight against pollution.
The last thing you want to think about is another bill. With the purchase of solar, you can prepay for your electricity at a lower rate. Solar allows people to retire with one less utility to worry about.
The Statement That Utahans Make With Solar Battery Backup
Although many have solar, not as many have a backup system for their solar array. A grid-tied system is a good option, but if the grid goes down you are still in the dark like everyone else. Utah homes prepared for power outages stand out from the rest.
Power When the Grid Goes Down — Why Access to the Secure Power Supply Matters in a Set of Solar Panels
Everyone likes a good party. Imagine enjoying your gathering and, all of a sudden, the power goes out. You go to check what the problem is and realize that the grid is down.
In a normal home, this would mean the end of your party. With solar backup, however, you don’t need to worry. Your power can be back on within a few minutes.
Average grid failures last up to a couple hours. With a set of solar panels, complete with any one of of our four tiers of residential solar backup, you are able to use power generated from the sun when the grid goes down. You can now continue hosting your party as if nothing happened.
If the power outage is more then a mere hour or two, backup becomes even more important. This is because technology has made us more reliant on electricity.
Fridges and freezers will continue to keep your food cold for awhile without power. Your phones and other appliances don’t need a full charge to work. However, A long outage could turn your home into a safe house for your family and friends.
Solar Backup and Battery Backup Options
Not all backup options work for everyone. At Go Solar Group, we have several backup options at your disposal. We offer four different levels of solar backup. Level one has a secure power supply that you can use when the power is out.
This allows you to reroute your solar power from the grid to an outlet installed near your inverter. Because you are using the panels, this option will only work when the sun is out.
Level two has a secure power supply with a portable backup generator. Now, if your power outage is at night, you can use your generator to keep your basics running. Level three has a secure power supply a portable backup generator and a home integration kit.
The home integration kit allows you to use your generator to power up to four circuits. Level four gives you a battery backup system that will power your entire home. Go Solar Group is a certified Tesla installer and can install Tesla battery backup in your home.
The Best Solar Brand Will Set Your Utah Home Apart
You can get cheap solar products, but, with solar, you get what you pay for. Cheap solar arrays get you the best price up front, but not necessarily the best production. You deserve a high-quality system — don’t settle for less.
What Quality Says About Your Home
When you get a quality solar array, you are making a statement about yourself. You are telling the world that you value your environment and the impact you can make.
Cheaply made solar products are more likely to have skipped corners somewhere. When you try to skip corners in the production of solar, it can be very dangerous. Producing solar panels creates waste that needs proper disposal.
Why We Choose German-Engineered Solar Panels and Inverters
Getting a German engineered product is the crème de la crème of technology. They are world leaders of innovation and have been for some time. When you see a product made in Germany, the first thought that comes is quality.
Between 1990 and 2012, Germany’s renewable generations jumped from 0 to 20 percent. Over the past 28 years, they have tested and improved their solar products. Although they have had a bumpy road, they continue to lead the way of renewable generation. It is for this reason that Go Solar Group uses products that have been German-engineered. We don’t cut corners and neither do our suppliers.
Advantages of Using a Utah Full-Service Solar Company
Many solar companies hire contracted solar installers to put up their systems. This may be fine for the initial install, but if you ever have any problems afterward good luck. Contracted Utah solar installers’ work is not covered by the solar company. This means that your solar company may not be able to help you if you have an issue. We don’t want you to have that stress. Upgrading your lifestyle shouldn’t make life more difficult. A full-service company will ensure that your solar journey is as smooth as possible.
Easy Paperwork and Help Along the Way
The first step after you have qualified for solar is to get the paperwork completed and approved. If you don’t have the proper permits and a net metering agreement in hand, you can’t install.
After filling out paperwork, it can take several weeks for it to get processed. A full-service company knows the regulations for your state and county. They will make sure that all the paperwork is correct and that filing is prompt.
Fast and Full-Service Installation
Once your paperwork has approval you can get your system installed. As a full-service company, Go Solar Group do our own installs. This means that as soon as you get approved we install your system. We also do our installs two to four times faster than the average solar installer in Utah.
Once we have you on the schedule, we can have your system up and running in no time. We install the system, walk you through it and set up an appointment for an inspector to approve it. Then, with a flip of a switch, your system is up and running.
Utah Solar Panel Maintenance
With a full-service company, you still have help even after the install. They will help you fix anything you see amiss. They also check in on the system a couple times in the first year after your install is complete.
Whether you have a broken panel, or feel that you aren’t getting the right energy offset, we will help. Through thick and thin Go Solar Group will assist you.
Solar Panel Removal When Moving or Reshingling
Moving your panels can be a pain if you don’t use a full-service company. This is because contacted installations are not insured by the solar company. Make sure you know who is doing your installation and who you would need to call if you need your system removed.
If, however, you are using a full-service company, getting your panels removed is a breeze. Once you let them know you want the service done, they will remove the panels for you. If you are moving to another home in Utah we will also reinstall your array at the new residence.
The values that solar supports make it an obvious choice for wealthy families. However, solar meets the needs of the middle class too.
Getting solar for your home is an investment that saves money. You can improve your quality of life with a solar installation.
