Solar Panels  (Scroll down for Wind Turbines, hydro, and Kinetic Vault installers)

Asia is the leader in numbers of companies manufacturing solar cells. The USA has 21 companies currently manufacturing solar cells. Most of these manufacturers use the Monocrystalline process including SunPower , the exception is DMSolar which is Polycrystalline. 

Warranties vary, panels are typically guaranteed for 10 to 30 years. Roofing contractors will guarantee no leaks for 1 to 10 years, electrical contractors their work for 1 to 10 years. Many individuals and companies purchase "Systems", where one company is responsible for providing the panels, roofing contractor, electrician and all necessary permits. Also ask the magic questions, How long have you been installing solar?, will you provide us an insurance certificate?, Do you Guarantee the performance you quoted? Will you sign a completed by date contract?

Your electric company including, PG & E, SoCal Edison, San Diego Gas and Electric, and SMUD can advise you on the best rate structure to be on after installing solar and provide you with a two way electric meter so that you may sell power back to them where available. According to California state law, all utilities must obtain 33% of their electric power by the year 2020, so they have a very large incentive to help you find the best plan to maximize your savings.  

If you do not hire a solar contractor, there are 3 cost elements involved in the implementation of renewable solar. First the initial cost of the panel, typically in the range of $2.00 to $5.00 per watt. Next is the cost of installation including mountings, typically done by a roofing contractor. Lastly the cost of connection to the electric grid if desired. Below find a comparison of various companies. All these companies have a high rating with the Better Business Bureau and are insured to guarantee performance, consistency and quality. Upon request they will also provide a list of satisfied customers.

Wind Turbines

Small turbines in the 100 to 10,000 watt range are available in both Propeller driven and vertical axis types. due to high propeller speeds, noise and possible harm to wildlife, vertical axis types are the desired choice for 100 to 4,000 watt installations.

Warranties do vary however, lacking the complexity of solar panels, these turbines are typically warranted for 5 years in salt free installations. Repairs typically consist of bearing and generator replacements. Systems are available from companies where installation, and hook up to your power is provided, the company providing the system is then responsible for the warranty typically.

Your electric company including, PG & E, SoCal Edison, and SMUD can advise you on the best rate structure to be on after installing wind turbines and provide you with a two way electric meter so that you may sell power back to them where available. According to California state law, all utilities must obtain 33% of their electric power by the year 2020, so they have a very large incentive to help you find the best plan to maximize your savings.  

 If you do not hire a Wind Turbine contractor, there are 3 cost elements involved in the implementation of renewable solar. First the initial cost of the panel, typically in the $200.00 to $16,000 range. Next is the cost of installation including mountings, typically done by a general building contractor. Lastly the cost of connection to the electric grid if desired. Below find a comparison of various companies. All these companies have a high ratings with the Better Business Bureau and are insured to guarantee performance, consistency and quality. Upon request they will also provide a list of satisfied customers.

Wake up America

Oil has been a inexpensive resource for many decades in the USA. With 90% of the easily recoverable oil found, the cost of drilling in sensitive areas of the  USA  is sky-rocketing or prohibited altogether. The political instability in oil producing areas of the world is also causing rapid increases in the cost of oil. 

 

America still has it

 It is predicted that our total green energy production will exceed 20% by 2020. This will  cut our dependency on oil by 5 million barrels per day and creating millions of jobs.

 Renewable resources are abundant in our nation,  including solar, wind, water, and wave kinetic energy. We also have the 3rd largest reserves of rare-earth minerals in the world, the kind that batteries and solar panels use! (97% of these elements now comes from China.) :(
